Obsession was on the minds of Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper at the "All About Steve" premiere Wednesday night in Hollywood. Bullock plays a woman who's obsessed by Cooper's character, a camerman (or photographer, as they preferred to be called) for the fictional TV news organization "CCN." Hmmm... what could that be modeled after?
But don't call her character's fixation creepy, says Bullock: “[She’s] not creepy - don't pass judgment - don't put the word creepy out there. She's annoying at the beginning, but at the end you [the audience] turn around and blame yourself for passing judgment . She was innocent and real rather than jaded and guarded and cool. She's just incredibly smart and kind.”
And why is she so obsessed? “All cameramen are hot. Like the one behind this one right now. If I wasn’t with my husband, whew!" she jokes. "Cameramen are like firemen – all have a level of hotness.” That brought a smile to the man behind the lens for our interview, Chris Audick.
Cooper is learning more and more about obsession these days, as in America's obsession with celebrity gossip. His dating exploits (Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger are among the ladies with whom he's been linked) are being read about in super market check-out aisles around the country. “I don't read it," he says, "But I get emails from friends saying 'Whoa! Man, what the hell is happening?' And they all talk like that [does frat-boy voice] 'Hey man!'" So you take it with a grain of salt? "Oh yeah!”
