Paul Wilson: Sandra Bullock – What Was Jesse James Thinking?

Sandra_Bullock_Diet_plansI admit it, I have a thing for Sandra Bullock

It’s not that I think she’s the most attractive woman on earth. I mean, she’s okay. But I have friends who know her from the Austin music scene and I admire her normal girl approach to life apart from her star power.

Makes me wonder even more why Bullock’s ex, James James, couldn’t keep it in his pants. James traded his marriage to Bullock for a roll in the tattooed sack with slut puppy mistress, Michelle “Bombshell” McGee.

Not that any affair is without it’s share of deceit and bad intentions, but grrrl Swastika Michelle was so devoid of morals she decided the net worth gained from selling her story to the tabloids was worth more than what Bad Boy Jesse was doing for her downtown.

Clearly Bullock has judgement issues when it comes to dudes.

Which brings your well-coiffed scribe to the point of the story. That being Bullock’s reportedly $70,000,000 payday for her roll in Gravity. Angelina Jolie turned it down because she was too busy.

How’s that working out for you, Ang?

Second choice Bullock, like many stars these days, chose to carve out a creative contract with the film company using Hollywood “first-dollar grosses” where the real payday comes if the movie does well.

The term refers to the star getting a percentage of the “first dollar” the studio gets as opposed to being based “box office” sales. If you’re a successful star, you don’t need the upfront paycheck.

In this case, the sky was the limit for Bullock’s earnings.

The studio makes millions even if – within reason – the picture is a flop. Personally I found the movie lacking, but that didn’t stop me and millions others from lining up to see it. My solar powered calculator tells me Bullock could walk away with something closer to $105,000,000 than the $70M the media is raving about. She gets the first dollar to the studio, then DVD, then pay and free TV; its endless.

While you’re wondering if girl’s got enough space to store that kind of bank, let’s not lose sight that while its a lot of money, 60-80% goes out the back door to taxes and management fees.

melissa-mccarthy-sandra-bullock-the-heatStill, it’s a lottery style payday.

A million bucks a minute for a 90 minute flick. Probably more than the lifetime earnings of every astronaut you can name plus the entire crew of Apollo 13.

I think I deserve a small cut of that, cuz I sat through The Heat, which was painful.

    He was thinking with pee pee.

  2. Jim says:

    Right there with you, Paul. Has that good girl persona coupled with the “it” factor for me. She’s in the top 5 of my “knock list”. Oh yeah, a hundred mil in the bank doesn’t make her less attractive to me either.

    Saw the Jennifer Lawrence pic up top on Jack Poessiger’s piece and then the Sandra Bullock pic here and thought maybe I had gone to TKC in error. Jack’s got more cleavage so I’m guessing you pissed off HC some how.

      Stomper, I piss of Hearne when I got 3.5 seconds with no story. He doesn’t understand the proletariat.

    pauly my man….let Harley chime in again.
    Knew a manworth 500 million….hated his wife….told herhe wanted a
    divorce….when I asked him “isn’t that gonna cost yousome serious money?”
    it wasn’t meant to be willy….even 100 million doesn’t buy love……hahahahaha

  5. paulwilsonkc says:

    My apologies to James; I did another “national” story. But I’m like Alonzo “Junior Baiter” Washington, I have to go NATIONAL, this town isn’t big enough for me!

  6. KCMonarch says:

    Wow…just wow. The tattooed girl in the photo you posted and labeled “McGee” is Kat von Drachenberg. Just another of admin’s “typos” I’m sure.

    “Clearly Bullock has judgement issues when it comes to dudes.”

    This is really the gist of this story, no wonder you bolded it, Paul. Not that the infidelity is her fault by any means, but wtf was she thinking marrying a scumbag like that? Sometimes you really can judge a book by it’s cover. While James’ choice of strange does seem curious to most of us, on the surface anyway, that chick would appear to be his freaking soul mate. And some of you nailed it in the comments, sometimes the little head just wins out as guys have slept around on chicks a lot hotter (not that there’s anything wrong with Sandy, did you see that near 50-year old bod at the end of Gravity?!!). I’m thinking even Adam would have been looking for some strange if there were some available back in Eden.

    • Stomper says:

      Good comments, PB.

      Recall a conversation I had when I was in my 20’s with a guy that was probably in his 50’s. He said ” The worst sex I ever had was excellent”. Forty years later, I haven’t been able to prove him wrong.
