Entertainment: Sandra Bullock says she'd be 'out in the cow pasture' 'if it wasn't for Netflix'

Sandra Jaffe, co-founder of Preservation Hall, dies

  Sandra Jaffe, co-founder of Preservation Hall, dies NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Sandra Jaffe, who co-founded Preservation Hall in New Orleans, introducing countless people to jazz through the intimate French Quarter venue over six decades, has died. Jaffe died Monday, her son Ben Jaffe, creative director of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, said on the hall’s Facebook page. No cause of death was given. She was 83, news outlets reported. Jaffe and her husband, Allan, were jazz fans in their 20s when they stopped in New Orleans in 1960 during what their son described as a “Kerouac adventure” that had taken them all the way from Philadelphia to Mexico City.

  • Sandra Bullock praised Netflix for hiring actors her age in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
  • Bullock said she'd be "out in the cow pasture" "if it wasn't for Netflix."
  • Bullock added that the streaming platform "brings people together" with foreign hits like "Squid Game."

Sandra Bullock told The Hollywood Reporter that she would be "out in the cow pasture" if Netflix didn't give roles to women of her age.

Bullock recently starred in "The Unforgiveable," a drama film about an ex-con (Bullock) trying to re-enter society when the world doesn't forgive her for her crimes. It's Bullock's second movie with the streaming platform after the 2018 hit "Bird Box."

Steve Martin Recounts His First Time Meeting Betty White in 1974: 'I Was Elated'

  Steve Martin Recounts His First Time Meeting Betty White in 1974: 'I Was Elated' As Betty White gears up to celebrate her centennial birthday, Steve Martin shared a story on Twitter on Thursday about meeting the famed comedian over four decades ago when he was just beginning his career. "In 1974, I was an obscure opening act for Linda Ronstadt at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. Passing through the lobby before the show, I saw Betty White and her husband Allen Ludden waiting in line," the Only Murders in the Building actor wrote. In a follow-up tweet he added, "I loved Betty White, so I went up to them: 'I'm so honored to meet you both.

At the premiere for "The Unforgiveable," the 57-year-old actress gave special praise to Netflix for keeping her employed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"They're good to artists," Bullock said. "They're good to filmmakers. If it wasn't for Netflix, a lot of people wouldn't be working. Their stories wouldn't be told. Who would think that me, as a woman, would still be working at this point? I would have been out in the cow pasture. It's true."

Bullock's next two projects, "The Lost City" and "Bullet Train," are not made by Netflix.

Bullock added that foreign hits such as "Squid Game," which became Netflix's most-watched show a month after its release last year, would not be as popular without Netflix.

"That's one of the bigger ones, but I've seen more work from other countries told by other nationalities, and we never would have had that 10 years ago, ever," Bullock continued. "It brings people together in a way that really, you know, we're getting more and more divided and yet, we have the streamers that are able to blend our stories together and go, look, same story, just different."

"The Unforgivable" is available on Netflix. "The Unforgivable" star Aisling Franciosi and director Nora Fingscheidt recently spoke to Insider about the difficulty of adapting the movie from the 2009 British miniseries "Unforgiven."
