Sandra Bullock jokes that the reason she’s not on social media is because of her film “The Net.”
While appearing on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show,” cohost Julia Cunningham asked “The Lost City” star if the reason she wasn’t on social media was because of her role in the 1995 film.
Bullock replied, “I learned a lot.”
“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” stars Bullock as Angela Bennett, a systems analyst for a software company, who uncovers a government conspiracy while trying to save her identity from being erased completely.
In a 2018 interview with InStyle, Bullock was asked if she ever felt pressured to join social media. She responded: “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,” the mother of two 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 stars in “The Lost City,” out in theaters now.
