Bullock: Minions voice role is hard

Sandra Bullock provides her voice for Minions

Sandra Bullock has joked she is getting used to acting on her own, after playing her part on the Despicable Me spin-off, Minions.

The Oscar-winning star, who recently attended the London Film Festival gala screening of her new film Gravity, admitted that being stuck in a recording studio on her lonesome wasn't easy.

"It's not easy. I have a whole new respect for people who do voiceover work," she said.

In Gravity, the 49-year-old actress spent a lot of her time alone on screen as medical engineer Dr Ryan Stone, who is stranded in space after the shuttle is destroyed.

She added: "Minions is not an easy job. Once again, you're acting with nothing. I seem to be on a path of acting with nothing!"

Sandra is to play Scarlet Overkill, a "stylish and ambitious" baddie who is determined to dominate the world and be the first female super-villain in the upcoming film, alongside Jon Hamm as her inventor husband.

The film, which will be directed by Despicable Me's Pierre Coffin with Kyle Balda, will tell the story of Gru's yellow henchmen, as they set out to find a new villain to serve after their masters T Rex and Dracula are destroyed.

Minions, which has been written by Brian Lynch, will be released in summer 2015.

The important thing is to work with materials that appeal to your sense of touch. You have a deep appreciation for tactile objects and people.More
