On one of the coolest streets in Austin, a go-to for the hip and the hungry. This is Walton’s Fancy and Staple, a café and flower shop in a century-old brick building owned and restored by actress-producer Sandra Bullock.

“I love the idea of finding purpose for something that was created for another purpose originally,” she said.

In “The Lost City” (from CBS’ parent company, Paramount), Bullock stars as a kidnapped romance novelist who –along with her book’s cover model, Channing Tatum – fights her way back to civilization through some harrowing and comically cringe-worthy situations.

“My mother had no sense of humor, unless you hurt yourself, and then she would laugh her ass off,” Bullock said. “So, I realized the way to my mother’s heart was through physical comedy.”

Sandra Bullock holds her Best Actress Oscar for “The Blind Side,” at the 82nd annual Academy Awards at the Kodak Theatre, March 7, 2010 in Hollywood.

Smith asked, “How do you get yourself out of a dress when you’re sewn in?” “You just rip it,” she replied. “I ripped it. And then I asked them to fix it. I go, ‘I don’t know what happened! All the beads came off!'”
