Sandra Bullock chatted with a close friend -- and director of her new movie "The Proposal" -- Anne Fletcher, in an interview for Glamour magazine's July issue, on newsstands June 9. The actress also graces the cover and wears a T-shirt designed by her husband's company, West Coast Choppers, in the spread. Click left for more pics, then read on for some juicy excerpts. Because everyone was looking at Ryan. Our stuff was hanging in each others faces, and we didn't care. But seriously, I wanted to do a good job because people are paying their hard-earned money to come and be entertained and surprised and to see my fabulous naked scene. And if there are no lines outside theaters on June 19, I'm going to be so pissed. Seriously, guys, you better check out Bullock in the buff, 'cause when she gets pissed, her hubby Jesse James gets pissed, and have you seen that guy? You really don't want to make him angry.
The scene is first and foremost a funny one — Bullock hunches over in a vain attempt to cover up, as an equally naked Ryan Reynolds approaches. At the age of 44, the acclaimed actress knows the moment was not intended as sexy or provocative. But the fact of the matter is, there she is, up on the big screen as naked as the day she was born. No stunt double. No body prosthetics.
The Proposal, a dippy but amiable rom-com out in the UK next week, is notable in a handful of modest ways.

After her provocative leg-crossing scene in the thriller "Basic Instinct," there was no way Stone could demur from shedding her clothes in "Basic Instinct 2," even though the sequel was made 14 years later. There's nothing gratuitous about the nudity in "The Sessions" , a moving yet lighthearted film about a middle-aged poet suffering from polio-induced paralysis who hires a sex surrogate in order to lose his virginity. Although her shower scene in Brian De Palma's thriller "Dressed to Kill" involved an obvious body double, Dickinson herself can sometimes be seen through the steam.
