Sandra Bullock isn’t the World Wide Web’s biggest fan because of one little movie she starred in back in 1995.
The 57-year-old revealed that she’s not on social media because of her film “The Net.”
During a chat on the “The Jess Cagle Show,” co-host Julia Cunningham asked the Oscar winner if the ’90s action thriller is why she’s not on any social media platform.
Bullock jokingly replied, “I learned a lot.”
The “Blind Side” actress added, “We met real hackers and I remember people going, ‘Does that exist? Do you think we could actually order a pizza from your computer?’ And I was like, ‘Yes.’”
“The Net” also starred Jeremy Northam and Dennis Miller and followed Bullock as a computer programmer for a software company. She unmasks a government conspiracy while at the same time trying to make sure her identity is not wiped off the face of the Earth.
In 2018, the mother of two told InStyle that she doesn’t feel compelled to get on the ‘gram.
She quipped, “Oh god, I would have one glass of rosé and be spouting off like [slurs voice], ‘This is not the truth!’”
“I’m not ignorant of what’s happening out there,” she added. “I look over people’s shoulders, going, ‘What is that little vignette of a cat on a fan?’ I’m just lazy. But I’m going to get on it and troll my friends. Once my kids are using it, I’ll know how to navigate it. I don’t want to be naïve.”
Bullock is currently starring with Channing Tatum, Brad Pitt and Daniel Radcliffe in their new action-comedy “The Lost City.”
She revealed to People last week on the red carpet for the film’s premiere that her daughter, Laila, and Tatum’s daughter, Everly, had some beef on the preschool playground.
“Channing and I were always getting called by the principal of our school because our daughters were at each other’s throats,” Bullock told the tale to the outlet. “It’s not the case anymore, but like one of them was trying to outdo the other one and take the other one down. It was hilarious.”
She then joked, “So we were always praying it was the other one’s daughter when we were called into the office.”
But now the two girls are besties after the duo’s parents filmed their new movie.
Bullock noted, “They’re both equally suited and they were both as strong but now we had a month for them to be quarantined while we were filming and it was a lovefest.
“Just sleepovers, everyone in my bed. It was everyone, not Channing. Just the kids. Channing got the night off, he was off with his buddies,” she explained.
