It was just red carpet banter, but an offhand joke made by Sandra Bullock now seems strangely prescient.
On Jan. 6, Bullock was chatting with The Insider's Niecy Nash (also her costar in The Proposal) at the People's Choice Awards. Naturally, they were talking about the month's biggest news story: golfer Tiger Woods' vast array of infidelities. Elin Nordegren famously attacked her husband and his car with a golf club (although the couple are denying she was violent toward him) after reportedly finding steamy text messages -- but Bullock said she thought the betrayed wife should have gone further.
"If I were Elin... man I would have hit a lot more than she did... I would have kept hitting!" said the soon-to-be Oscar winner.
"You would still be swinging the baseball bat?" asked Nash.
"Yeah, she stopped," joked Bullock. "She was respectable. I'd get the baseball bat, I'd get everything out."
Hmm... Jesse James looks remarkably unscathed so far. Maybe Bullock doesn't own a baseball bat?
In retrospect, Bullock's comments seem ironic -- but what's most poignant now is how confident and carefree Bullock sounds when joking about Tiger's affairs. As if it wouldn't even cross her mind that the same thing could happen to her. Just one more piece of evidence that she deserves better!
