Have I mentioned yet today how much I love Sandra Bullock? No? Good, because I’m about to launch into how obsessed I am with the way she addressed a relationship rumor.
I don’t know if you’ve heard the rumors lately, but a lot of people are saying that Sandra and Captain America star Chris Evans are dating. Apparently they were seen having dinner together at some point (albeit in a larger group of friends), and since it’s a widely known fact that you can’t raise a child without a man and a penis, everyone seems really eager to jump to conclusions and shack Sandra up with somebody so that Louis Bullock doesn’t wither up and die for want of a father. It’s really all about the child, y’know.
Anyway, there’s been no real comment from either star’s rep about it, which could mean anything or nothing, but either way, Sandra had the best possible response when she was asked about it by Entertainment Tonight:
“You guys are a little behind! We’ve since married and it started breaking apart, so we separated. We filed for divorce, and I hope everyone can respect our privacy. But we’re going to remain friends and share responsibility of the farm animals we’ve taken on, because you just can’t abandon the animals.”
Ugh, you guys. In love. IN. LOVE. That’s some Olivia Pope-style deflection there, and it seriously proves what a professional Sandra is in this business. As does the fact that she’s being romantically linked to a dude who is A. smokin’ hot, B. seventeen years her junior and who C. admitted to Details magazine in 2012 that he had a crush on Sandra, to the point that he used to have a poster of her in his bedroom.
Get it girl. GET IT. Or even if you don’t get it, keep crushing it with the witty repartee, because you are killing it out there.
