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.”
