Media hunting women: Bullock

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock believes women are being “hunted” by the media, something which she says “scares (and) embarrasses” her.

“I feel like it’s become open hunting season in how women are attacked and it’s not because of who we are as people, it’s because of how we look or our age. I’m shocked, maybe I was naïve, but I’m embarrassed by it.

“My son (Louis) 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,” Bullock told

The 50-year-old actress has praised the “tribe” of women in Hollywood who have formed a firm unit against their critics.

She added, “You’d be surprised at the love you have in our crazy industry. The wo-men have bonded together and have become this tribe of trying to take care of each other and be there for each other in a way, as the minute you step out it’s an onslaught. We need to stop. We are harming girls and women in a way, at a speed that it’s scaring me. So I would love for someone to help put a stop to this.”
