Sandra Bullock’s ‘Oddly Relaxed’ Sprint To Find An Oscar Dress

With less than three weeks to go until the Oscars, the ever-laid back Sandra Bullock admits she still isn’t sure what she’s going to wear—not that she’s stressed about it. “I’m so behind,” she acknowledged at yesterday’s lunch to honor the nominees at the Beverly Hills Hilton. “Today was the first time that I actually saw one dress and then looked at some sketches.” The circumspect star—who commented that her sleek gray skirt suit by Vivienne Westwood made her feel “like a very cleaned-up version of myself compared to what I look like when I got up this morning,”—says, “I’m pretty good about finding something and sort of circling around it and then I’m oddly relaxed about it because it’s someone else’s job to finely stitch thousands of pleats and jewels into a gorgeous thing to make you look divine.” When it comes down to it, Bullock is determined to make the best with whatever comes her way: “Look, if I have to wear a trash bag I’ll belt it with rhinestones and I’ll make it work, but I’m not panicking for some reason because there are so many beautiful things out [there] that someone will not want to wear and I’ll get it. But there’s one I saw that’s just a work of art.” We cannot wait to see what she picks! —reporting by Scott Huver

She rarely ever disappoints, can’t wait to see what she picks. I like her so much, seems to be very down to earth.

I’m not an expert, but from what I’ve gatrehed over the years, it’s a tough profession to get into. Unless you have connections, you start at the very bottom of the totem pole and slowly (very slowly) work your way up. And as I’m sure you can guess, pay, unless you are at the top of that totem pole (and it might not be a stretch to say unless you are the most popular of all the high people in the literary world totem pole), pay is not very high.If you are in the US, here is the Bureau of Labor Statistics page on writers/editors:Definitely check that out for more accurate info than my gatrehed info.
