In Our Brand Is Crisis, Sandra Bullock plays a shrewd political consultant, a role originally written for her pal George Clooney. But if the tables were turned and Clooney were to play one of Bullock’s iconic characters, who would it be?
When asked just that, the Oscar winner told reporters: “I think we all know it’s Miss Congeniality. I mean, I didn’t even have to answer it because you were thinking it,” Clooney, who co-produced Crisis, said at its Toronto International Film Festival press conference Saturday.
Bullock got in on the fun, too, cracking: “Have you seen his legs?”
Not one to skip a beat, Clooney countered: “And I rock a swimsuit better than almost anybody. Well, a one-piece. Bikinis, you know … I’m 54.”
All jokes aside, Bullock, 51, said teaming up with Clooney again (they last appeared together in 2013’s Gravity) was a delight.
“[Producer] Grant [Heslov] and George and I have known each other since long before we actually had jobs in this business, so we’ve seen each other through many facets and stages of life, and this is just another one of those facets and stages. The nice thing is we still like each other at the end of it,” the actress said.
“The challenges, there aren’t any because we disagree well.”
Clooney concurred, adding: “We fight fair … So it’s just fun.”
