Sandra Bullock has recently shared her embarrassment over her role in the 1997 film, “Speed 2: Cruise Control.” In a recent interview, the 57-year-old actress revealed that she has been “very vocal” about her dislike for the film, stating that it “makes no sense” and features a “slow boat” that is “slowly going towards an island.”
In the movie, Bullock’s character, Annie Porter, and her boyfriend, played by Jason Patric, find themselves on a cruise ship that has been hijacked by Willem Defoe’s character, John Geiger. Geiger seeks revenge on the cruise company he used to work for, and his actions result in chaos and destruction on the ship.
Despite its star-studded cast, including Bullock, Patric, and Defoe, “Speed 2” was a critical and commercial failure. The film was widely criticized for its lackluster plot and poor execution, with many viewers finding it difficult to suspend their disbelief at the slow-moving cruise ship.
Since the release of “Speed 2,” Bullock has become one of Hollywood’s most successful actresses, starring in a string of box office hits. However, she took a hiatus from acting in the mid-2000s to focus on raising her children. In a recent interview on “Red Table Talk,” Bullock opened up about the challenges of being a parent, including the difficulties of adopting an older child with a traumatic past.
Despite her success, Bullock’s experience with “Speed 2” serves as a reminder that even the most accomplished actors can have missteps in their careers. However, her willingness to be candid about her embarrassment over the film is a testament to her integrity and self-awareness.
