It seems Sandra Bullock has a nasty, secret bad habit that she acquired some time ago. It's not only unhealthy, it's downright gross and disgusting. And she doesn't seem to be able to control her addiction to it.
Yes, unbelievable as it sounds, America's sweetheart, Sandra Bullock, has a secret addiction. The Academy Award winning actress has been spotted skulking around the set of her new film, Gravity, carrying a white styrofoam cup. Reportedly, she was looking for a place to indulge her secret vice. And what was in the cup? Booze, crack cocaine, crystal meth, chocolate chip double fudge marshmallow chunk ice cream? (Eeeww!)
The answer is: none of the above. The suspicious cup contained smokeless tobacco. You know, the kind of tobacco that you "dip." It goes in your mouth under your tongue or between your lip and gums. To reiterate: Eeeww!
Poor Sandra Bullock. Caught in the grip of such a gross, unsightly, not to mention un-ladylike habit. How did this happen?
Well, like many other unpleasant things, it allegedly started with her ex-husband, Jesse James. The philandering motorcycle mogul taught his then wife "how to "dip" smokeless tobacco to cut the craving for cigarettes." Apparently, he considered it the lesser of two evils. Or the replacement of an addiction with a watered-down version of the same addiction. Sic transit the logic of Jesse James. The problem is that now, The Blind Side star can't overcome her addiction to dipping.
Oh well, at least now the Gravity cast and crew know what to get Sandra Bullock for ChristmasÂ—"a designer spittoon."
Do they actually make such things? In Hollywood? Probably.
