Sandra Bullock says she was more than a little anxious about a scene in The Proposal in which her co-star, Ryan Reynolds, slaps her bare behind.
From showbizspy.com: “The 44 year-old Speed star was thrilled her ”jiggling butt’ was edited out of new romantic comedy The Proposal.
She was worried about stripping off and having Reynolds slapping her bare behind, but was relieved to discover the unflattering bits wouldn’t be shown.
She said: “I was really worried about my butt jiggling when contact was made. Luckily, the director was a fellow female and knew just how to cut the scene before the ripple effect happened! I am very grateful.”
The sympathetic director is Anne Fletcher. The film, in which a hard-nosed publishing executive falls for her assistant during a visa scam, has just shot to the top of the US box office.
Sandra Bullock has never been spanked in a movie before so this is a first. It would be nice to have the full uncut “pancake effect” version though!
Update March, 2013. I watched this movie on tv last week. Sandra Bullock’s power-crazed yuppie character got up everyone’s noses and a good old-fashioned homespun spanking would have put her in her place perfectly. But the much vaunted “Return of Cinema Spankings” has never quite reached the rom-com genre.
While there are a couple of brief hand-on-ass scenes, Bullock’s quote, predictably perhaps, turned out to be hype more than anything. This is a bottom patting not a slapping and, unless I’m much mistaken, she’s wearing a dressing gown.
Still, here are the two scenes.
