Bird Box has become one of the biggest movies of the last few years, with 80 MILLION people watching it on Netflix in the first month of its release.

It's safe to say pretty much the entire world has seen it, except for one lady, who is actually in the movie itself.

The iconic Sarah Paulson pairs up with her BFF Sandra Bullock for the flick following their Ocean's 8 collab, and Paulson plays Bullock's sister in the infamous apocalyptic horror.

During a recent appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Paulson explained that she actually never watches her own work, and hasn't done so since American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Colbert reminded her that she's potentially missed out on some incredible movies and TV shows, such as The Post, which was Oscar-nominated, but she maintains that she's never actually seen Bird Box.

“You didn’t see you in The Post?!” Colbert asked. “It’s such a brilliant, beautiful scene, you were so good.” Paulson then made Colbert act out the scene so she could see the impact.

Imagine being in a movie which sees the entire population die if they open their eyes, and she won't even take off the blindfold to watch the performance and check who survived in the end?

“It’s so exciting that the movie is resonating with people, and I hope that people find a way to continue to enjoy watching the movie," she said, about the #BirdBoxChallenge.

“But I really hope people would not try to re-enact the most dangerous parts of it. It is a movie, and you shouldn’t try it at home. We don’t want anything tragic to happen.” Sensible words from Sarah.

It's a shame she won't get to see Sandra fight her way through the film blindfolded, we wonder how she feels about all the memes which have been inspired by the flick

Netflix' Bird Box has consistently found itself in the headlines, mainly because of how absolutely ridiculous the whole debacle is.

The movie sparked a change this week in YouTube's guidelines after people began posting videos of themselves carrying out potentially dangerous acts while blindfolded, such as driving.

The streaming giant even had to come out and tell viewers not to try the so-called 'Bird Box Challenge', but now the company is under fire for using REAL footage from a 2013 rail disaster.

In 2013, a 74-car freight train transporting crude oil derailed beside the small Canadian town of Lac-Mégantic, and resulted in the tragic deaths of 47 people.

At first, Netflix refused to edit its post-apocalyptic horror flick after it was criticised for using footage of the disaster. A spokesman told AP it had no plans to remove the footage; “We will keep the clip in the movie.”

Now, it has been reported that the streaming service will be exploring ways to prevent this from happening in the future. BBC reports that Netflix has used footage of the tragedy before, in the Canadian-American science fiction show Travellers.

Julie Morin, mayor of Lac-Mégantic, criticised Netflix for using the upsetting footage, telling The Globe and Mail: “You can be sure we are going to follow up on this, and our citizens are on our side.”

Peacock Alley Entertainment, who produced Travellers, released an apology and said they unintentionally dishonoured the Lac-Mégantic incident and would replace the footage.

Pond 5 also stated their regret that the footage had been ”taken out of context and used in entertainment programming”. They apologise “to anyone who was offended, especially the victims and their families”.

If you haven't seen Birdbox yet on Netflix, you may want to hop on that bandwagon, if only for the sake of these STUNNING make-up inspired lewks.

Sandra Bullock's massively successful horror thriller has the internet and streaming world absolutely hooked, not to mention competing in dangerous blindfold challenges.

We were graciously bequeathed with glorious memes at first, but now it's time for beauty to take over.

That's right, Birdbox beauty has begun and we are LIVING for it.

We NEED to try out this trend on our next night out on the town.

A real-life blindfold could come in useful in a nightclub…

Boy meets girl. Girl looks flawless and wigs are snatched. Boy needs blindfold to recuperate from seeing such staggering beauty up close. It's a realistic scenario, don't you think?

Why not give the trend a go and choose your favourite Bird Box concept for your next make-up regime, we guarantee you'll look incredible even while rowing a boat.

The weekend festivities may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to wallow in your own self-pity tonight. One of the best things to do after a hectic weekend is to unwind and watch one of your favorite movies.

We recommend watching something light and funny to deal with that dreaded Sunday night fear, and luckily enough the perfect Sunday night flick is on TV tonight.

Thanks to the wonderful people over at Universal we’ll be tuning into one of the funniest Sandra Bullock movies.

The Proposal is on at 9 pm tonight and we are beyond excited about it. It’s hard to believe it’s been nine years since the film was initially released.

The hilarious movie stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Bullock stars as the fierce editor whose world flips upside down when she is told she might be deported back home to Canada.

Luckily, the quick-thinking boss puts a plan together and uses her assistant to solve her problems. She tells Reynolds’ character, Andrew, that he must marry her, but he will only agree if she promotes him to editor and publishes his book.

The duo embarks on a trip to Andrew’s hometown where they have to convince his family and their immigration agent that their marriage isn't a complete farce.

This movie is full of witty scenes, touching moments and an infamous dance sequence with Betty White.

We couldn’t think of anything better to watch on a Sunday night.

You can catch The Proposal on Universal at 9 pm tonight.

While we loved the 2001 heist film Ocean's Eleven, there was a little something missing from it: an all-female cast of our favourite actresses.

Ocean's 8 is set to remedy that, and we are absolutely buzzing with excitement.

This film follows Danny's sister, Debbie Ocean (the inimitable Sandra Bullock), as she plans to steal $150 million in diamonds, right off an actress' neck at the Met Gala.

She's joined by a top-notch team on this action adventure: her right-hand woman Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett), jeweler Amita (Mindy Kaling), street con Constance (rapper and actress Awkwafina), hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna), fashion designer Rose (Helena Bonham Carter), and fence Tammy (Sarah Paulson). 

The gems they're stealing will be worn by actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), and the plan will have to go off without a hitch if they're going to get away with it.

Needless to say, we can't wait for this film to come out!

We'll have to wait a bit longer to get our heist film fix, as Ocean's 8 will be in cinemas on June 22.

Think you'll be watching this movie with your own partners-in-crime?

We all saw it happen with the all-female remake of Ghostbusters, and Sandra Bullock is refusing to see it happen with Ocean's 8.

Discussing the spin-off movie of the Ocean's Trilogy, the Oscar-winner, who will play Danny Ocean’s ex-con sister Debbie, urged critics to suspend their cynicism and wait for the movie's release before casting aspersions on it.

Paying tribute to her co-stars, Sandra told Entertainment Weekly: "I mean, I’ll tell you, we’ve got some feisty women that will fight right back. It’s like, let’s just take a breath and let’s just see if we come up with something fun."

"There should be a moratorium," she argued. "There should be a rule, you’re not allowed to say anything nasty until after it comes out. Obviously that’s never going to happen."

Sandra is keen to remind film-goers that she is not attempting an all-female remake (although, kudos if she was), but instead creating a whole new story – an endeavour which shouldn't warrant criticism.

"We’re not a reboot," she explains of the movie which will star Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Rihanna. "We’re just a 'this is what’s happening in 2017'."

"It’s not even a passing of the torch. It’s a parallel story of another family member that was raised in the same family Danny Ocean was and what happens when Debbie steps out of jail with all of these amazing, powerful women."

Sandra has taken great solace from the all-female cast, telling the publication: "We all were like, okay, let’s just take care of each other for these six months and relish this opportunity we’re being given."

While Sandra certainly sees the merit in the approach, she refuses to be pigeonholed by lazy critics.

"We don’t want it to be just for women. This is not a man-hating. We love the men. There’s men in this movie. We love them. But this one heist needs women."

Hear, hear!

Ocean's 8 is not hitting cinemas until summer 2018, but today we got our first official look at what's in store!

The picture shows the stars of the all-female movie on a subway in New York, looking glamorous AF. 

Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and Sarah Paulson all star in the highly-anticipated motion picture. 

If that's not a dream cast, then we don't know what is! 

Warner Bros. released a brief, explaining the plot of Ocean's 8… and it sounds CLASS. 

"In summer 2018, the tide will turn as Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala."

Our favourite Southern belle Reese Witherspoon turned the ripe old age of 40 yesterday, which you’ll have been made well aware of if you follow the actress on social media.

The Oscar winner rallied an impressive list of famous buddies to celebrate her landmark birthday, with Matthew McConaughey, Taylor Swift Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson all showing up to wish the birthday girl well – and, in Taylor’s case, even give an impromptu live singing performance.  

Dressed in a purple sequin mini dress for the occasion, Reese didn’t look anywhere near her 40 years, but of course she’s not the only famous name to be defying the laws of gravity.

Here are just a few of the stars who are totally working that ‘40-going-on-21’ look…

Gabrielle Union, 43

From pom-poms to news reports, Gabrielle Union looks the same now on BETs Being Mary Jane as she did on the 1999 CLASSIC Bring It On.

Gwen Stefani, 46

Having moved on from her divorce last year to new man Blake Shelton, Gwen sure is showing her ex what he’s missing.

Sandra Bullock, 51

Standing strong as one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses, Sandra has been playing characters in their thirties for the last ten years.

Ellen Degeneres, 58

WHAT!? Just, WHAT!?

Meryl Streep, 66

Having famously been told she was too ugly for King Kong, Meryl sure showed them.

Goldie Hawn, 70

A woman that proves, if a hairstyle ain’t broke…

Jane Fonda, 78

Miss Anti-Ageing herself shows us all who’s boss.

From minor hook-ups (Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom anyone?) to full scale relationship chaos (that award goes to Perrie and Zayn, for sure), we consider ourselves pretty well-versed in celebrity relationship history.

But not every rendez-vous is common knowledge – in fact, there are more than a few star-studded romances that totally passed us by.

Here are just 11 couples you (probably) never knew dated…

1. Ryan Reynolds and Alanis Morrisette

Even though you may have figured Ryan had a bit of a thing for blondes (Scarlett and Blake, hello!), it turns out that one of our favourite Hollywood heartthrobs was in fact with a certain talented brunette.

Ryan and Alanis dated for over four years and at one point were even ENGAGED. They called off the entire thing in 2007.

2. Matthew McConaughey and Janet Jackson

Back when Matthew was Oscar-less and way before he was starring in rom coms with J-Lo, he was also briefly courting a certain Jackson. No, not Michael unfortunately but the one and only Janet whom he met at the Grammys in 2002.

Though Matthew never admitted to the pairing, Janet described the romance as 'a brief fling,' a very common occurrence in Hollywood it seems.

3. Jared Leto and Cameron Diaz

Another Oscar winner, the multi-talented (and irresistibly delicious) Jared dated Hollywood it-girl Cameron for FOUR YEARS. How did we not know this?

The gorgeous couple were together from 1999.

4. Sofia Vergara and Enrique Iglesias

We can only fathom the Latin spice involved in this relationship. Before becoming famous in her own right with Modern Family, Sofia was MOST famous for dating the Spanish heartthrob.

5. Helen Mirren and Liam Neeson

Yep, our very own Liam was smitten with cinematic royalty back in the 1980’s. Apparently having met on the set of the film, Excalibar, they fell madly in love.

Liam later told CBS News: “Oh my God. Can you imagine riding horses in shiny suits of armour, having sword fights and stuff, and you’re falling in love with Helen Mirren? It doesn’t get any better than that.” We can’t! So cute!

6. Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Hutcherson

When we think of Vanessa’s dating exploits, we salivate to think of Zac Efron and her current beau Austin Butler. Somehow we can’t quite fit the Hunger Games star Josh into the mix.

Having apparently met on the set of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, it doesn’t seem that this romance ended amicably. Speaking to Seventeen Magazine in 2013, Josh said: “I think getting broken up with is worse than breaking up with somebody. For me it hurts more when you’re ready for something to keep going and the other person isn’t.” Ouch.

7. Mischa Barton and Jamie Dornan

Wait, what? How did these two even meet? Our favourite Northern Irish eye candy of 50 Shades of Grey fame apparently dated Marissa from the O.C. Yep apparently these two had a proper, albeit brief, romance back in 2007.

8. Simon Cowell and Carmen Electra

Inside sources have said that these two were mad about each other at one point back in 2012 .

9. Sandra Bullock and Ryan Gosling

Before The Notebook and before Rachel McAdams, there was Sandra. Dating for an entire year, Sandra was 16 years older than the promising actor.

He apparently still counts her among his best girlfriends ever. Awh! Wait, but how many have you had Ryan?

10. Britney Spears and Colin Farrell

Ah, yet another of our famous exports doing the rounds in Hollywood. Alleged to have dated back in 2003, Britney quickly brushed off the rumours.

Cheeky chappie Colin even reportedly sent Brit a t-shirt saying “I slept with Colin Farrell and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.” We can’t imagine the two remained friends…

11. Justin Timberlake and Fergie

Way back in 1996, before double denim and Britney, a fresh faced 16 year old Justin had a brief romance with the then 23 year old Fergie.

Though the romance failed, the duo remained amicable following their split.

Kate Winslet is the latest Hollywood actress to speak out about the gender pay gap which has been the topic of much debate.

The Oscar winner has said that, unlike Jennifer Lawrence and many other famous ladies, she would rather not talk about the issue at all. She has that she is “having such a problem with these conversations.” 

Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, she added: "I understand why they are coming up, but maybe it's a British thing. I don't like talking about money; it's a bit vulgar, isn't it?" 

Kate explained that she is “surprised” by the conversations and she that “it seems quite a strange thing to be discussing out in the open.”

The actress, 40, went on to say that she is perfectly fine with how things are going in the industry:

“I am a very lucky woman, and I'm quite happy with how things are ticking along." 

Many would be raising an eyebrow at her comments when taking into account how so many of her peers have been drawing attention to making less money than their male co-stars. Kate however doesn’t feel there is much she can add to the conversation.

“If I'd ever been in that situation I would have either dealt with it or removed myself from it," she said. "I haven't ever felt that I've really had to stick up for myself just because I'm a woman." 

Kate admits that she is uncomfortable talking about money publicly and would rather deal with these issues discreetly. 

Fellow actress Sandra Bullock however, does not feel the same way. She told Variety that she is sick of women being “mocked and judged” in the media.

“Once we start shifting how we perceive women and stop thinking about them as “less than,” the pay disparity will take care of itself. There’s a much bigger issue at hand. I’m glad Hollywood got caught.”

It looks like another all-female cast reboot is on the way!

Sandra Bullock is set to star in an all-female version of Ocean's Eleven, according to Playlist.

There's no word yet on who will star alongside Sandra in the film, but it is speculated that Jennifer Lawrence may sign on. That's because the film's director, Gary Ross, also directed The Hunger Games. YES!

Writer Olivia Milch is working on the script. She's already written the scripts for two female-centered movies, Little Women and Queen & Country.

According to Playlist, the reboot has been in the works since last year, with George Clooney, director Steven Soderbergh and producer Jerry Weintraub controlling the project.

Jerry Weintraub, however, passed away this summer, leading to some speculation if the project will go ahead.

But Playlist reports: "Sources close to the project tell The Playlist that the movie is still definitely in the works, and Milch has handed in a draft of the screenplay."

This sees the second reboot of a popular movie franchise with an all-female cast. A new Ghostbusters film is on its way to cinemas in the next year which will star Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

Congrats are in order for Sandra Bullock who has reportedly become a mum for the second time.

The actress has apparently adopted a baby girl, and has already finalised the papers and brought her new daughter home.

Sandra's new arrival will be a little sister for Louis, who was adopted five years ago from New Orleans.

According to RadarOnline, Sandra has been taking the little girl out in public more and more often, though no official announcement has been made to the press as yet.

As for her love life, 51-year-old Sandra is still smitten with her new man,  model and photographer Bryan Randall. The couple went public back in August and according to various reports Bryan has even moved into Sandra's LA home.

The Oscar-winning star was previously married to biker Jesse James, but the pair parted ways in 2010 after repeated allegations that Jesse had cheated.

Originally, Sandra and Jesse had planned to adopt Louis together, but after their split the actress filed the papers alone as the little boy's sole parent.

In  an interview earlier this month, Jesse spoke about the hardest part of the divorce process. 

"I think losing my son that I adopted, for sure," he explained. "Not being able to see him and see him grow up and all that stuff."
