Sandra Bullock Is "Embarrassed" By The Way Women Are Treated Online

The internet is a big bully, and Sandra Bullock has had just about enough.

"Women are attacked, and it's not because of who we are as people, it's because of how we look or our age," the actress told E! News. "I'm shocked — and maybe I was just naïve, but I'm embarrassed by it. My son is getting ready to grow up in this world, and I'm trying to raise a good man who values and appreciates women, and here we have this attack on women in the media that I don't see a stop happening."

The Oscar winner is currently promoting her role in the upcoming film, Minions, and was recently on the cover of People magazine as the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” of 2015. Bullock added that she accepted the honor of the People cover story as an opportunity to talk about other women she see's doing wonderful things for the world and for each other.

"You'd be surprised at the love that you have in our crazy industry," she said. "The women have bonded together and have sort of become this tribe of trying to take care of each other and be there for each other in a way, because the minute you step out, it's an onslaught."

"Little girls are having the hardest time with bullying and the internet — somebody with a very large hand and big voice needs to put a stop to it," she said.

Could she be that much-needed savior? How big are her hands? Internet beware, Bullock may be coming at'cha. Watch the video interview, below. (E! News)
