“This was the perfect time to do it”: Sandra Bullock Readily Accepted to Get Naked With Ryan Reynolds Despite $250M Actress’ Staunch Stance Against On-Screen Nudity

Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds’ 2009 film The Proposal holds a special place in everyone’s hearts. The commercially successful rom-com was loved by all for its funny moments and the two actors received a lot of praise for nailing their comedic timing. But there’s also another scene that’s stuck in people’s minds.

In a hilarious but awkward scene, Sandra Bullock’s Margaret falls on top of Ryan Reynolds’ Andrew while both of them are naked. This moment marked the first time Bullock had done full on-screen nudity. Later on, the actress revealed what made her take the bold step for this film after rejecting similar scenes in others.

Why Did Sandra Bullock Choose The Proposal To Do Full On-Screen Nudity?

Sandra Bullock once revealed in an interview with Glamour UK why The Proposal was the perfect time for her to do a full naked scene in her career. She said, “If I was going to do my full nudity in my career, this was the perfect time to do it. If I can do it for a joke, yes… And Ryan and I wanted the laugh.”

The Lost City actress also explained why she had never done a nude scene on the About Last Night podcast. She said:
“I was like, ‘I will do this naked scene only if I can be humiliated and funny. You will not see me trying to attempt being sexy naked—in real life or onscreen. There’s just no point in it! It was for that reason, with a friend that you trusted comedically, and safety-wise I knew I was in the presence of safety.” 

Bullock implied that she wanted to recontextualize the way nude scenes were generally done. So instead of showing nudity in a romantic or s**ual context, she opted to do so in a comedy one. Her idea definitely worked because the film grossed $317 million on a $40 million budget.

Sandra Bullock dished all about that iconic nude scene during an interview on the About Last Night podcast. The actress revealed that she chose to do full on-screen nudity with Ryan Reynolds and no one else simply because she knew him from when they were kids. As a result, she was comfortable with him.

The Gravity actress said, “Ryan and I have known each other since we were prepubescent. We go way, way, way back.” Also, she said that the crew and director Anne Fletcher took all the necessary steps to ensure that she and Reynolds were comfortable.

She explained:
“We had a closed set, which means no one’s allowed to be on there, just hair and makeup coming in to fluff and hide. Ryan and I have these flesh-colored things stuck to our privates, my hair is strategically over the n*pples, and Ryan’s little— not little, at all! It’s just whatever’s there, and I don’t know because I didn’t see it, I didn’t look!”
As for what the Deadpool star felt about it all, Bullock said that he was unphased. The actress described him as “Unflappable. He is absolutely unflappable.” Fans would love for the two actors to reunite once again, but that probably isn’t possible soon.

The Proposal is available on Amazon Prime Video.
