LONDON: The Proposal actress Sandra Bullock — who is married to motorbike enthusiast Jesse James — would rather receive a handwritten note than an extravagant gift.

She said, “I am lucky in that I don’t expect much and I am always so pleased by just the smallest gesture. I am a notes and letters gal. I would much rather have someone write me something than buy something for me. I like the intentions rather than the gifts, so if someone writes me something or does something like that then I am very overwhelmed by that romance.”

Sandra also revealed she is trying to be less structured in her life and become more spontaneous. She said, “I’m the queen of planning and scheduling and I’m trying very hard to stop it. I just want to finish what I’m doing and go home. I want to have a weekend. I want to have breakfast, a stack of pancakes. I don’t want to not enjoy where I am at this very moment.”
