The actress asked the director why she was having to play volleyball when the daughter didn't play. The director asked if she'd rather learn how to pole vault. Apparently, the daughter was like the #2 pole vaulter in the state. The actress said she'd stick with volleyball.
Also she said that Michael slept on an air mattress at first, and not the couch. It was back in the day when air mattresses weren't really made to hold that much weight, so he'd wake up to a nearly flat mattress every morning.
She said that Sandra Bullock played her mother perfectly.
Well, she lied if she said that Oher being a big, dumb, ox was accurate. He didn't struggle like that in school. He's a lot smarter than the movie made him out to be.
