Ocean's 8: Why Sandra Bullock nearly quit acting over Hollywood sexism

Right place right time Sandra credited her start to being lucky saying'My career has been a domino effect of people who said

Additionally, Cate Blanchett, who worked alongside Sandra in the Ocean's 8 film, explained to the publication that she was almost driven out of the entertainment industry for the same reason. Obviously this is because she's a lesbian and is waiting for a Bette-from-The L Word type to convince her to run a scam.

Bullock's Ocean's co-star Cate Blanchett says she has similarly been made to question her worth in Hollywood, particularly when it comes to equal pay.

Since giving birth to her son Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman in 2016, this movie is Anne's first job since being on full-time mommy duties.

Hathaway, 35, and Rihanna, 30, are just two of the many female A-list stars in the caper film, which also features Blanchett, Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and Helena Bonham Carter. The actress said that she felt self-conscious when she went to work and was "aware" that her body was a different size from what people were used to. But the comment that made Hathaway beam came from Rihanna.

Then, as she was walking on set in a pair of jeans, she got the best compliment ever. We just loved each other so much.

Finally, Rihanna herself looks at Anne and says: "Damn girl, you got an ASS- You got an ass like me." .

"I can honestly say I've never had that experience on a film set before", Hathaway said.

For proof, observe Ocean's 8, starring Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean, estranged sister of heist-lovin' Danny (George Clooney), whose exploits fueled the Steven Soderbergh-directed Ocean's remake trilogy.

She told Ellen: "One of the lucky things about being in this business for so long is that I've really kind of come to terms with the pressure that you get to look a certain way as an actress and I don't beat myself up about any of that stuff anymore". I was like, "Wow, maybe I need to step out of here".

Ocean's 8 opens 11 years after the franchise's third movie, Ocean's Thirteen.
