Sandra Bullock Calls Out Media Over Treatment of Women: It's 'Open Hunting Season'

Sandra Bullock is calling out the media for the treatment of women in this eye-opening new interview.

“I feel like it’s become open hunting season in how women are attacked and it’s not because of who we are as people, it’s because of how we look or our age. I’m shocked—and maybe I was just naïve, but I’m embarrassed by it. My son [Louis] is getting ready to grow up in this world and I’m trying to raise a good man who values and appreciates women, and here we have this attack on women in the media that I don’t see a stop happening,” the 50-year-old Minions actress told E! News.

“Little girls are having the hardest time with bullying and the internet—somebody with a very large hand and big voice needs to put a stop to it. But until then, women need to look out for each other,” Sandra continued.

“You’d be surprised at the love that you have in our crazy industry. The women have bonded together and have sort of become this tribe of trying to take care of each other and be there for each other in a way, because the minute you step out it’s an onslaught. And I laughed when [People] said they’re gonna be generous and bestow me this wonderful privilege, but I said if I can talk about the amazing women who I find beautiful, which are these women who rise above and take care of business and do wonderful things, and take care of each other, then I’m more than honored to be on the cover of this. We need to stop. We are harming girls and women in a way, at a speed that it’s scaring me. It’s really scaring me, so I would love for someone to help put a stop to this.”

    Don’t blame the media for mistreatment of women BLAME the public who buys and supports all females who decide to portray themselves in promiscuous ways in magazine covers, overtly sexual music videos and explicit forms of dressing all in the name of fashion and fame. The public pays money to support females who push the boundaries in the entertainment business on social media and then the media is criticized for only showing how females gladly want to be portrayed. I am not saying women need to return to Victorian Days..but if you glorify being a sexually objectified and make massive amounts of money then why is the media to blame. Her son and children of millions is receiving these mixed messages. But it’s not cool or PC to say uhhh what images are we women putting out there to celebrate.

    Thank you!!! When a Hilton or Kardashian get famous by a sex-tape…well…When someone wrote when is this women (speaking of KK) over. I thought to myself it is over when people don’t pay her any attention anymore.
    I’m 24 and female but I’m tired of women complaining about being objectified…Men are too! More and more. Being buff as a guy is standard.

    Yet she’s still friend with chelsea handler…..

    oh stop complaining about the kardashian. why not lecture when these olympic athletes are naked for espn’s “body issue” or these allegedly legitimate actresses are naked for allure magazine’s “confidence” issue. the most popular show is game of thrones and every actress who has won an oscar in the last decade has won typically if they are naked. the kardashians’ have negotiated deal after deal for five women. you could learn how to build an empire from them too. if you don’t like it; move on.

    There is a fine line between nudity and pornography. The ESPN body issue is designed to show health not objectify the body, but glorify its beauty and strength.

    Kardashian and Hilton are porn stars.

    sorry! I wasn’t trying to complain. It was simply suppost to be an example of what sells if didn’t sell they wouldn’t be all over. All I was trying to say. Other than that I agree with you. No reason complaining about celebrities in these comments just avoid these sites. And yes. I would go to KK for business advice ;)

  • Baseliner

    women sure love playing the victim

  • this is madness…

    I’ve read some of the comments below, and some of you are missing one of her main concerns, ageism. Women have been fighting persecution and prejudice concerning their age FOR ages, and not just in Hollywood. A lot of these insecure celebs, for example, are posing naked, constantly, because they’re trying to stay relevant before they’re “put out to pasture”. It’s sad that some women have reached such a level of desperation. Why is the idea of a woman growing older, so revolting to so many people?? BIOLOGY DICTATES THAT WE DON’T HAVE A CHOICE IN THE MATTER!! The idea of ageism is simply asinine.

    women can be as chauvinistic as men…i think that if they didn’t want
    to be scum of the world they wouldn’t become actresses or
    actors…bullying is bad for both men and women in case you haven’t
    forgot BEDELIA (sandy doesn’t know anything about cyber
    bullying)…Sandra Bullock is a *******…SHE IS SOMEONE WITH A VERY
    LARGE HAND AND A VERY BIG VOICE yet when it comes to hollywood she sides
    with people who will conflict her ‘sincere’/”personal” interests…she
    is a fake….!

    When ‪#‎MichaelOher‬ spoke poorly of Hollywood
    Sandra was against Hollywood but when they want her to say something
    nice about Hollywood…then she kisses their butt how Hollywood is
    responsible for giving her Louis or whatever)….all the while
    complaining how everyone is so insincere and kisses everyone’s butt
    ‪#‎SANDRABULLOCK‬ is kissing everyone’s butt and being insincere….I
    REMEMBER YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS FROM POETS.COM SANDRA … EVERYONE GIVING
    EVERYONE 5 STARS (the max) AND ALL THE COMMENTS NEVER CRITIQUING BUT
    ALWAYS BUTT KISSING. YOU ARE AS MUCH A PART OF IT AS YOUR FRIENDS ….
    YOU ALWAYS SAYING HOW FAKE HOLLYWOOD IS AND HOW PEOPLE ARE FAKE…YOU
    ARE JUST AS BAD AS THEY ARE…YOU DO THE VERY SAME THING.

    For
    instance…you have a voice and a big hand but this is the first time
    you ever spoke up and who do you speak up for….just people who are
    like you….not the world of bullying but just the females…what about
    trans-gender or other (you are just complaining about your own personal
    problems and don’t give a flying **** about anyone else…IT’S OBVIOUS
    ALL THOSE DICKS WHO KEEP SAYING YOU ARE THE MOST SINCERE PERSON IN
    HOLLYWOOD HAVE THEIR HEADS UP (your) THEIR ARSES!!!…you have all the
    power in the world and you sit on it just to not to be judged by your
    peers who will kill your career or whatever it is you are really worried
    about…

    some of us have been on the hunt for a long time now Sandra….where have you been?
