Nobody saw Gravity
coming. The sci-fi drama starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock has taken viewers and critics alike by surprise. In fact, it opened up with record-breaking number for October.
But behind every movie, are the actors who make it. And sometimes, that job can be a little more challenging than others.Sandra Bullock has declared Gravity as one of the most difficult projects she has been a part of
. Most of her filming took place in an isolation tank, where she was alone with her thoughts. Famous world-renowned actress or not, that gets to you.
During an appearance on The View
, Bullock admitted that, "I was depressed, I was angry, I would get so sad because it was a black room, no human contact, they took away sound."

However, Bullock had somebody watching her back; her director, Alfonso Cuarón. Keeping a close eye on his star always, Cuarón had a fail safe remedy to bring Sandra back to herself and the role: her son.
"What they did was, Alfonso could see, because he had cameras always on my face, he would be like, 'She's cracking, she's cracking, go get the kid'."They'd created this whole wonderland just outside for Louis [to keep him occupied during filming], so [they brought him in]."
George Clooney was also watching out for his costar. Sandra claimed that he was "such a comfort" to her during the difficult dark days of filming.
Gravity will soar to the UK on November 8; and I have a feeling that it will find similar success across the pond.
