Sandra Bullock is getting very candid about her Hollywood filmography.
While every actor has a few jobs in their resume (or maybe not actually listed in there anymore) that they’d rather forget, the 57-year-old made it clear hers was a sequel to one of her most successful films.
In a sit down with TooFab, Bullock and her “The Lost City” co-star Daniel Radcliffe had a fun time recounting the duds in their acting careers.
When asked if there was any project they were initially embarrassed upon its release, but later reconciled with when they saw how much it meant to fans, Bullock responded with "Speed 2: Cruise Control," the 1997 sequel to blockbuster "Speed" with Keanu Reeves.
"You stumped me with the fans coming around later on [part of the question]," Bullock answered. "I have one no one came around to, and I'm still embarrassed I was in. It's called 'Speed 2.' I've been very vocal about it. Makes no sense. Slow boat. Slowly going towards an island."
Maybe it was the fact that Reeves didn’t return for that sequel to the 1994 action hit; or that the original’s efficiently effective premise was bloated out a bit by a lumbering cruise ship setting.
Whatever the reasons, the film was neither critically or audience embraced. "That's one I wished I hadn't done," Bullock flatly stated, "and no fans came around, that I know of…”
When Radcliffe tried to soften the harsh memory, Bullock didn’t bite.
"I feel like it had a kind of cult love as well," Radcliffe said in reference to "Speed 2."
"Very quiet,” Bullock laughed back. “Like five people. Him and the other four 12-year-olds who were watching the slow boat going towards the tiny island.”
Bullock riffed on the general stinkiness of her sequels - she also starred in "Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous" in 2005 - as compared to Radcliffe's experience. "Every one of them has been an absolute stinker," she said of her sequels. "You have nothing but success with sequels. One was better than the other.”
The "Harry Potter" star answered back, “My career started on sequels.” To which Bullock agreed, "They're all brilliant. Mine are all stinkers."
Radcliffe admitted that when he first put on the outfit for the "Harry Potter" franchise, the budding teenager didn’t exactly feel too cool about it.
"I think honestly, when I was on Harry Potter and dressed as a school boy,” Radcliffe said, "it didn't feel like the coolest thing in the world at the time. It's been, honestly, later that I've looked back and gone, 'That was incredibly cool,' and I do feel that now, for sure."
"The Lost City" hits theaters on March 25th.
