Sandra Bullock recalls a wild behind-the-scenes anecdote from the set of the 2009 romantic comedy, The Proposal. The error occurred during the shoot of a nude scene with Ryan Reynolds.

During a recent interview on About Last Night Podcast with Adam Ray, the Oscar-winning star went full transparency mode. She was ready to answer all the fan questions with full clarity. It is known via E! Online that Bullock, in an interview on About Last Night Podcast with Adam Ray, disclosed the tricky situation. The awkward moment happened when her and Reynolds were both nude.

The said scene in the movie showed their characters accidentally colliding together, both naked, and falling down to the floor. Bullock then detailed the actual events that that led up to the scene,

“We had a closed set, which means no one’s allowed to be on there, just hair and makeup coming in to fluff and hide. Ryan and I have these flesh-colored things stuck to our privates, my hair is strategically over the nipples and Ryan’s little— not little, at all! It’s just whatever’s there, and I don’t know because I didn’t see it, I didn’t look!…When they’d say cut, we couldn’t really move. He was on his back with his knees up, and I’m on the floor just sort of resting on his knees, just waiting, and you don’t wanna look and we couldn’t really move…I hear [director] Anne Fletcher from the darkness go, ‘Ryan, we can see your ball sac!’ I’m like, ‘Oh God!’ because you wanna look down but I’m like, ‘Don’t look down. Don’t look down.’ Everyone in the darkness spun around to see if they could find a monitor. I was like, ‘Anne, there’s a way to present that information….'”


Sandra Bullock definitely wasn’t in the podcast to bust pal Ryan Reynolds’ balls. The statement sure answered all questions that were asked about the nude scene. Bullock and Reynolds are long time buddies and the moment on set of was laughed off.

On a set where there is a nude scene that has actors being in close proximity, it can lead to some awkward and uncomfortable moments. But this particular incident was handled very sportingly and professionally.

What could have been an uncomfortable situation on The Proposal was turned into something lighthearted. The movie earned Bullock a Golden Globe nomination. Many people also praised her on-screen chemistry with Reynolds.
