PanARMENIAN.Net - Sandra Bullock has described Gravity as one of the most challenging films of her career, Digital Spy says.
Bullock told Flicks and Bits that it was not easy to shoot the scenes where her astronaut character was stranded in space.
"Physically I knew that I could get there, but I had no idea how I was going to execute what I wanted to give to [director] Alfonso [Cuarón] - who's someone I had always dreamed about working with," she explained.
The actress continued: "I just didn't know I was going to be able to step up and give him what he needed because the whole environment was new. I didn't have my crutches and tools in people, other actors.
"When George Clooney was there it was like the sunshine was there and life walked into the room. When he left it was like the tomb had shut again. On a daily basis I was hoping I was giving Alfonso what he needed and deserved."
Bullock went on to insist that Clooney was "such a comfort" on the Gravity set.
"He's such a professional and he knows exactly what to bring and he brings more - he actually wrote a scene for us that we were struggling with," she explained. "We couldn't find words that didn't sound melodramatic, we couldn't find words that sounded organic and fit."
She added: "He heard we were struggling and sent an email to Alfonso and he handed it [to] me and there was our scene. That's the guy he is, he wants to be a part of a bigger story, he doesn't care what size his part is. With him you get an actor, writer, director, producer.
"He's on set all the time even when he's done and the crew love him, you just want him to be around because he brings the fun. He's so electric, the minute he's on screen… just even his voice, it's so comforting."
Bullock previously revealed that she signed on to Gravity in order to work with director Cuarón.
Gravity is now playing in the U.S. and opens on November 8 in the UK.
