Sandra Bullock has spoke out about one of the films she is 'still embarrassed' about doing.

Recently The Blind Side star announced that she would be taking a break from her acting career to spend time with her family.

In a recent interview with The Lost City co-star Daniel Radcliffe, Bullock opened up about the one film she was embarrassed about.

The answer came after the stars were asked whether they had any projects that they were initially embarrassed to be part of but came around to after seeing fans' reactions.

For Radcliffe, it was Harry Potter as he explained 'it didn't feel like the coolest thing in the world at the time' but that it ended up being 'incredibly cool', which we agree with.

However, Bullock's answer was a little less straightforward, she explained: "You stumped me with the fans coming around later," she told Too Fab.

"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," she continued.

Bullock initially starred in Speed in 1994, opposite Keanu Reeves, to rave reviews.

However, the 1997 follow up, which did not feature Reeves, or fast cars for that matter, is something Bullock feels embarrassed about.

She then affirmed that the film was one she 'wished' she 'hadn't done' and that no fans came around after that she knew about.

Reeves has been asked before about his decision not to return for the sequel and he admitted that he 'didn't respond to the script', as per Huffington Post.

Reeves said of the project "I really wanted to work with Sandra Bullock, I loved playing Jack Traven, and I loved Speed, but an ocean liner? I had nothing against the artists involved, but at that time I had the feeling it just wasn’t right".

Sandra Bullock Thought Lost City Shoot Would Kill Daniel Radcliffe

published at3 months ago

It seems that Reeves had pretty good foresight, as Speed 2 has just a 4 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, compared to it's predecessor, which has 94 percent.

Bullock proceeded to note that while she doesn't have luck with sequels, adding: "Every one of them has been an absolute stinker," she has high hopes for The Lost City.

The film follows author Loretta Sage (Bullock) who gets kidnapped while on her book tour by Fairfax (Radcliffe), an eccentric billionaire.

Given Radcliffe having 'nothing but success with sequels' here's hoping they'll be a decent follow up to their new film.
