Sandra Bullock loved playing the villainous Scarlet Overkill in the “Despicable Me” spin-off, “Minions.” “It’s fantastic because she’s justified, she’s misunderstood,” Sandra said at the London premiere on Thursday. “She’s an 8-year old little girl who’s throwing temper tantrums because she wants what she wants. But it was really fun to play.” 

But as much as she loved the new role she wasn’t too keen on being all by herself while recording herself in a sound booth and missed playing off of other actors. “It’s hard because I like having other actors to play off of or other minions to play off of and I didn’t have that. So you really discover a lot of what you don’t know, you really rely on the director and the whole team that’s behind that sort of glass partition to help guide you.” So this might be her last ‘Minons’ movie. “It was so hard and I don’t think it’s my forte. I don’t think I’m as good at it as other people are. And if it worked out, great, I think this might be the last time.”
