Sandra Bullock explains why a ‘strong’ Channing Tatum line is so important to her in The Lost City

Sandra Bullock said it’s “heartbreaking” that films and books aimed at women are underrated and opened up about a moment addressing this in her new film.

Bullock to Star Alongside Channing Tatum in New Rom-Com Adventure Movie, the lost city, as the reclusive romance novelist Loretta Sage.

While on a book tour with cover model Alan (Tatum), Sage is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe) who hopes the author can guide him to ancient lost treasures she mentions in her books.

In a new interview promoting the film, Bullock explained her view that female audiences “are taken for less than” and that as a female audience, “the things that bring you joy aren’t valuable.”

In one scene, the film deals with the criticism and rejection of romantic literature when Sage calls her romance books “Schlock”. Tatum’s character rebukes this, reminding the author that her work matters to many people.

Bullock told that PA News agency: “You know, that’s hard to respect [something] when everything that comes towards it is derogatory. And then you have to look at the source of why it’s being talked about or thought about in this way, and when you really find out why — it’s heartbreaking.

“It’s heartbreaking because you’re a woman. And you are held for less than held, and whatever your needs are, the things that bring you joy or escapism are not valuable. And that’s a hard pill to swallow.”

Adding that this attitude shows “absolutely no respect,” Bullock explained the importance of Tatum’s lineage and that it came from a male character, as “someone who usually says these things or makes us believe these things.”

She said Tatum sang the line “beautifully,” adding, “So it was really powerful, and most importantly, the way he said it. It was so sincere and full of love and said, ‘All these millions of people, are you bringing them joy? Why do you despise their joy, their happiness, so that it snuffs you out?’”
