Sandra Bullock: My Mom Raised Me Not to Depend on a Man For Anything

In an interview with Express, Sandra Bullock comes across as a remarkably composed, totally kickass and inspiring woman (probably because that's exactly what she is).

Although the profile focuses far too long on Men Who Have Wronged Sandy (yawn), she comes across as incredibly strong, self-sufficient, and all-around glorious. Discussing her swift divorce from former husband Jesse James, she said simply, "My mother raised me not to depend on a man for anything. I may have taken that to extremes."

She also spoke about the immense pressure she puts on herself to succeed:

I was afraid of being a failure, of not having the best time or of being chicken. But every year I get older I think, 'What was I fearing last year?' You forget. And then you move on.

I used to get out of bed sometimes and feel depressed and watched a lot of reruns on TV to get over it. I should have allowed myself to be a little more human and not worry about trying to be a superwoman.

But you ARE a superwoman, Sandy!! [Express]


Sandra Bullock: My Mom Raised Me Not to Depend on a Man For Anything

Michelle Williams recently opened up about her daughter Matilda, and what she had to say is very sweet and cute and tender. At the New Yorker festival, she said that Matilda's beginning to understand more and more, having recently figured out who Glinda the Good Witch is: "She would go up to people in the park and say, ‘My mommy is Glinda the Good Witch in Oz. There’s two bad ones and only one good one and that’s my mom.’”

I guess her recent visit to the old Dawson's Creek set didn't impress her as much (unless she secretly means that Dawson and Pacey are the bad witches)? [Just Jared]

Justin Bieber got into a shirtless fist fight at a club in South Korea because he deemed the DJ set not hip-hoppy enough (as one does). According to DJ Michael Woods (whoever that is), the Biebz and his security team barged into the DJ booth demanding that more hip hop be played for the boy king. When DJ Michael Woods refused to comply, the toughest dancing imp in all of the land allegedly punched Woods' tour manager and then fled the scene.

In the aftermath of the brawl, Deadmau5, a man famous for wearing a giant mouse helmet and dancing about at rave parties, has weighed in and proclaimed Bieber immature. [Billboard]
