Sandra Bullock: 'Extremely Loud' Helps 9/11 Healing Process

Sandra Bullock picks up some items at REI before working out at Body by Simone on Tuesday (December 13) in New York City.

The 47-year-old actress recently shared why she made Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close – where she plays a widow who loses her spouse in the September 11 attacks – even though she had “no conscious desire to make a movie about 9/11.”

“I was approached by [director] Stephen Daldry, who explained to me how they wanted to make [Jonathan Safran Foer's] book. I read the script, and I saw a 9/11 movie being made through the eyes of a child. An innocent child who asks all the questions that we should be asking but we know there are no answers for,” Sandra told CNN.

“I thought it was the most beautiful way to show grief [from] this incident, and to start the healing process,” she added.

FYI: Sandra is wearing an Inhabit scarf and D&G sunglasses.
