Life ain’t so bad for Sandra Bullock! The veteran actress stunned at the red carpet premiere of her upcoming film, Our Brand Is Crisis, at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday, Sept. 11 — and according to Bullock, her happiness isn’t just for show.
The 51-year-old actress looked drop dead gorgeous in a black mesh cutout dress, nude heels, and a dark red lip.
“My life has been wonderful,” she told reporters at a press conference for the political satire film Saturday. “It’s a great day today, hopefully it’s a great day tomorrow. I’m very lucky to be here, very blessed. What I want for the future [is] more of the same but if it doesn’t happen there will be a good reason for it.”
Earlier this month, Us Weekly exclusively revealed that Bullock is dating a new man, hot photographer Bryan Randall. The two were first spotted together at Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s wedding in August, and have been keeping a low profile in Hollywood since then.
Bullock, who plays a political spin doctor in Our Brand Is Crisis, which is produced by her longtime pal and Gravity costar George Clooney, added that she identified with her on-screen character because she was so “human.”
“She’s struggling with mental illness, she’s struggling with addiction, she’s trying to take herself off the carousel once and she gets pulled back in because of an addictive need to win,” she said of her character, “Calamity” Jane Bodine.
“That’s in all of us and those of us who don’t have it have been through enough journeys in life and enough hardships to come out on the other end and realize that’s not what life is about,” she added. “I look at things and think, ‘What am I going to leave behind for my son [Louis]? What things do I want to say that I want to parlay to him in what I feel about the world, and how I want the world to be?’”
The Oscar-winning actress famously split from her ex-husband, Jesse James, in 2010, after he admitted to cheating on her with numerous other women.
“I’ve been on the floor and I’ve been heartbroken,” she told The Mirror in 2013. “I didn’t know how I was going to stand up. But I just gave it time. You don’t think it will pass when you’re in the middle of it, but it does.”
