Sandra Bullock wore ‘Minions’-themed pumps to ‘Minions’ premiere: fabulous?


Here are some photos of Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm at Saturday’s LA premiere of Minions, the Despicable Me spin-off movie featuring a Minions-driven storyline. Sandy wore this Roksanda Illincic dress in black and yellow – the colors of the Minions – and she wore these absolutely AMAZING Minions-themed pumps by Rupert Sanderson. They are literally Minion-heels.

Sandy voices the character of Scarlet Overkill, the new villain in the Minions’ world. She basically admits that she agreed to voice the villain character because of her son, saying: “I wanted to do something that he could see, that I was in.” She also told the BBC that she loves that she’s voicing a villain because “As an actor, being a villain is a great thing. Everyone wants to be able to do that. And we’re human beings – we’re crabby – so to be able to be mean the entire time you’re working? It’s a great release.” Here are some additional quotes from Sandra on the red carpet:

A Minion state of mind: “I’m always in a Minion state of mind. It’s impossible for people to understand me. I’m constantly making odd sounds and things are always a disaster where I am. But somehow, I always get out alive. I’m basically a Minion.”

She’s a bitchy villain: “It’s a job I’m very proud to step up into. I think it’s appropriate. I am a bit of a bitchy villain. And I think it’s appropriate I was typecast. It’s perfect.”

She’s a funny villain: “They don’t write villain roles for women. But in this I was able to do the funny villain. And that made me feel really good. And Scarlet Overkill has a good reason to be like she is. It’s good to have a good reason.”

Super-cute. And no, no one believes that Sandy is secretly a bitchy villain in real life. She’s America’s Sweetheart! She really is, more than anyone else these days. Julia Roberts? Not so much. Jennifer Aniston? Eh. Sandy is the Sweetheart.

PS… I wouldn’t mind seeing Hamm and Bullock play opposite each other in a rom-com, you know? Their coloring is a little brother-sister, but I bet they would have chemistry together.

    I must have these shoes 😍😍😍

  2. Kitten says:

    She looks great. Those shoes are really fun.

    • blue marie says:

      She does, I love those shoes.

    • Alice says:

      She looks fantastic. And I love that dress. And the shoes – whoaaa – I want some. And JH – not bad either.

    • Kiddo says:

      THIS is the best she has looked in FOREVER. Usually I hate her style.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        She looks fabulous! But I always think that, so clearly I’m biased.

        Hamm, while he looks good, I can’t respect him after all that sh*t about his hazing at Uni. He’s got a permanent black mark in my book.

  4. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    Ooh great theme shoes, supposedly they’re going to be auctioned off for charity too.

  5. vauvert says:

    I want these shoes stat. The dress too! It’s funny, of all the summer blockbusters, this is the one I look forward to. Not dinosaurs or superheroes…

  6. Ivy Vine says:

    I like the shoes, they are cute. The yellow shoes goes great with the simple black dress.

  7. Beth No. 2 says:

    Sandra looks great, but minion fever needs to die.

    • Lynnie says:

      Haha I agree. I mean they’re funny and all, but I’m really surprised that grown people are falling over themselves to worship them. I think the creators of the Despicable Me franchise were surprised as well.

      All in all this movie is a cash grab (I don’t blame them), but I think it’ll be a very well done cash grab.

    • Flower says:

      Oh no…. minions will be around for ever, there are dozens of short clips on the net like the old style movie cartoons which have nothing to do with the movies, great to play when there is tension at the office it lightens everyone up and defuses the cranky pants. Also I have a friend in the entertainment industry who is a dwarf and she has practically paid off her mortgage by being a minion at kids parties and events in the past few years, it’s all good.

  8. GlimmerBunny says:

    Such a great outfit! And romcom casting-wise I just want another one with Sandra and Ryan Reynolds. They had AMAZING chemistry in “The Proposal” 🙂

  9. Betti says:

    Love those shoes and Sandra.

  10. nicegirl says:

    OMG I want those shoes!

  11. Hautie says:

    First of all, I love that suit that John Hamm is wearing. I love seeing men who will wear a great colorful suit. This one with hints of yellow! Love it.

    I also notice, that his girl has not been seen with him lately. On the PR stuff. I thought she was attached to his side. Permanently.

    Yes, I love that everyone that was on the red carpet, seemed to have been dressed in yellow theme clothes. I saw some really cute pictures yesterday of the event. Allison Janey had on an amazing sparkle dress in yellow.

  12. Maya says:

    She is close friends with the vile, bitc*y and racist Chelsea Handler.

    She was married to Jesse James who was shown to be pro Nazi.

    Even if Jesse James thing can be excused (can be married to someone without really knowing them) – Chelsea Handler friendship cannot. Chelsea called celeb children monkey & Eskimo and has said numerous other racist slurs. Sandra has adopted a black child and yet she doesn’t mind hanging out with Chelsea.

    Sandra is NOT the sweet image she has created – you are the company you keep.

    • Michelle says:

      Wait a sec…could it be that Sandra may know the real Chelsea Handler and not the person that everyone else sees? How racist could Chelsea be if she dated rapper 50 cent for a while? I have redneck relatives that are racist pricks, but that doesn’t mean that I am a racist.

      • Maya says:

        I did not say Sandra is racist – I just said she is not the sweet woman she portrays and that as a mother who has adopted a black child, she shouldn’t be hanging out with people who are racists. What if Chelsea says something racist infront of Sandra’s son?

        As for the Chelsea and 50 cent thing – just because she slept with him it doesn’t mean she isn’t a racist.

        That is like saying “I am not a male chauvinist because I sleep with women”.

    • Bridget says:

      Chelsea Handler isn’t my cup of tea, but it’s pretty obvious that she’s constantly putting on an act to try to shock people. The woman’s got issues, but I think the likelihood that any of us actually know what she’s like as a person is very low.

      • Maya says:

        Rodner Fogueroa, North Korean president called an ethnic person monkey – they were correctly called racists.

        Here Chelsea not only said these slurs – she said to children. Any decent human being knows that children are off limits.

        For me she is a racist and anyone who associates with her – I don’t support.

  13. Brittney B says:

    The shoes are adorable; that goes without saying. But I absolutely LOVE this dress. Perfect lines, perfect tailoring, perfect colorful accent… why can’t all stars with money dress this well for the red carpet?

    Personal note… I have a season pass to Universal Orlando (it was a Christmas gift), and the Minion ride is the only one I haven’t tried yet, because the lines are ALWAYS more than an hour long. People love the Minions!! This movie will obviously kill it at the box office.

  14. Nessa says:

    I love her forever. She is just awesome. And it’s adorable that she wore Minion high heels!

  15. Courtney says:

    The shoes are amazing. They need to start selling them.

    I can’t look at Jon Hamm the same again after learning about his frat boy days. It disgusts me.

  16. AlmondJoy says:

    She looks amazing. Those pumps are too cute.

    Can someone please tell me how a person becomes “America’s Sweetheart”? What does that even mean? Is the term only used for white women, kind of like when people talk about “the girl next door”? I’ve been wondering about this for awhile now.

    • pinetree13 says:

      Good question. America Ferrera was once referred to as America’s sweetheart but I don’t know how well know that is (she is hispanic though)

  17. Vava says:

    She looks fantastic, and the shoes are adorable.

  18. Green Is Good says:

    Love the shoes and the dress. Fun!

    It reminds me of Angelina Jolie wearing all those KILLER pumps and dresses for the Malificent promo tour. Shoe p0rn!

    • BrandyAlexander says:

      I thought the same thing. I think Elle Fanning’s were less obvious, but I seem to remember she had some pretty princess shoes for that promo tour too. These studio/movie/shoe collabarations have been awesome.

  19. Abby says:

    So cute. I love it when actors go all in for a part. Like Angie with Maleficent.

  20. kri says:

    Adorable! Ilove when people have a sense of humor and a sense of fashion. Those shoes are beautifully constructed.

  21. Tacos and TV says:

    Love the shoes

  22. Dawn says:

    How cute! Those shoes are one of a kind.

  23. Nuna says:

    Too cute for words. I love Sandra Bullock and constantly question her taste in men.
