Sandra Bullock: I didn’t steal ‘Crisis’ role from George Clooney


She won an Oscar for “The Blind Side” and was nominated for “Gravity,” and now Sandra Bullock plays a campaign strategist in the political comedy-drama “Our Brand Is Crisis.” Though her role was originally written for a male actor and George Clooney was rumored to be interested, Bullock tells Matt Lauer she did not steal the role from him: “I’ll steal other stuff, like maybe a house in Italy.” She also reveals that her 5-year-old son Louie has chosen to be a Ninja Turtle for Halloween and wanted her to be an “inappropriate Batgirl.”
