Laying out her temporary retirement plans, Bullock adds, "I'm so burnt out. I'm so tired, and I'm so not capable of making healthy, smart decisions, and I know it." "Work has always been steady for me, and I've been so lucky. I realized it possibly was becoming my crutch. It was like opening up a fridge all the time and looking for something that was never in the fridge," she says while celebrating her recently released film, The Lost City, which grossed $187.7 million.
"The success of The Lost City is a testament to Sandy's creative vision and instincts. It proves that a well-executed female-driven film appeals to all audiences and reminds us that people still want to laugh together," Paramount Motion Picture Group co-president Daria Cercek had said in his statement about the film's success.
