Sandra Bullock Comes to the Rescue After Another Actress Faints on Movie Set

Sandra BullockSandra Bullock has played a doctor in the movies before, but last weekend she got to put her caregiver hat on for a bit while on the set of her latest project, Our Brand Is Crisis. The film is currently shooting in New Orleans, where is it is approximately the same temperature as the surface of the sun, despite it being late October.

An extra collapsed onset on Sunday, October 26, and the Oscar winner rushed to her aide, sitting with her while she recovered and offering her water to drink.


The woman apparently fainted from heat stroke as the temperatures hit the mid-80s. And in Louisiana, you can better believe it wasn't a dry heat, either.

The costumes for the extras were heavy clothes, and it was just too much for the poor woman. Bullock reportedly fanned her and chit-chatted while they waited for an ambulance to take her to a local hospital to be evaluated. Co-star Billy Bob Thornton was there too, but sources say he mostly hung back while Sandy took charge.

It may seem like a no-brainer, but Sandra Bullock is A-list, and she had to be freaking hot too. She could've taken the opportunity to take a breather on her own, get her own ice water, have another extra fan her, but she opted to show some love to this poor chick. I think that's totally awesome, and one more reason to love her.

And just in case you were wondering, Our Brand Is Crisis in a political dramedy due out in 2016. It's based on a 2005 documentary of the same name, and is about the 2002 presidential election in Bolivia. In addition to Bullock and Thornton, it also stars Scoot McNairy, Anthony Mackie, and Ann Dowd, and is directed by David Gordon Green.

Now you'll have a cool behind-the-scenes story to tell when you see the film. You know hot it was when they were filming this? Hot enough for heat stroke.

Are you surprised by Sandra Bullock's act of kindness?
