Did i really say that? with Sandra Bullock

On being nominated for an Oscar for The Blind Side: "I am not winning an Oscar. Nine times out of 10 I always pick who is going to win. And I already know who is going to win. I am not going to say, but nine times out of 10, I'm right." (2010)

On husband Jesse James: "You get dressed up in monkey suits and you sit at a table with people you don't know. And I leave you there, and then you come back with, like, Morgan Freeman's email. I don't know how you do it. I love you so much, and you're really hot. And I want you so much." (2008)

On being individual: "I never did anything according to what anyone else wanted. That's why I think I am happy. I do everything 100pc -- even my stupidest missteps. I know when I'm getting ready to mess up, I'm going to do it full-on." (2008)

On being a stepmother to three children: "I now know that anything sweet, really sweet, that I have was nothing that I planned. If you don't have kids and animals, you don't truly know what real life is about." (2009)

On fighting: "Women should do a lot more fighting. I don't think it's fair that we can't get into a good bar fight once in a while. We'd get out a lot of stuff we're supposed to repress." (2005)

On domesticity: " I like to iron. Ironing is comfort. It's control. I'm a nutty person who likes to make sure everything is in its place. I am a big ball of high energy and organisation and structure. Don't forget, I'm half-German" (2009)

On success: "It's such a weird thing, because I don't take it for granted, but I also don't take the monetary aspects of it too seriously." (2005)
