American actress Sandra Bullock revealed recently she almost quit acting because of sexism in Hollywood.
Bullock became widely known in 1994 for her role in the movie “Speed.” She has since starred in many blockbusters, including “The Blindside,” which earned her an Oscar.
In an interview with USA Today, Bullock revealed in the later years of her career, she knew she was discriminated against because she was a woman.
The actress didn’t provide details about the experience, but admitted it left a lasting impact.
She said, “It was hard for me, because I walked with blinders on through life and got to where I (felt) like I was less than because I was a woman.”
Bullock’s latest movie, “Ocean’s 8,” is her first role in three years.
Its opening debut raked in approximately $44 million.
