The female lead of 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' claims she and her younger co-star Thomas Horn 'had the tough stuff' in the film, but Hanks missed the intense scenes.
Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks recently teamed up in "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close", but the former insisted she had to do tougher parts than her co-star. "We had the tough scenes, you needed a partner," the Linda Schell depicter said about her scenes with her on-screen son, Thomas Horn.
The Oscar-winning actress claimed Hanks missed the intense parts since the "Larry Crowne" actor was mostly seen in sweet moments with Horn. "I mean he [Horn] and Tom got to play, and really connect and bond and show that similarity."
Bullock previously revealed that she had to hold back her maternal instincts when filming the post 9/11 movie. "When you have maternal instincts towards a child the first thing you want to do is go to that child and just protect - and that was exactly what I was not gonna do," she admitted. "It was hard."
"Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" revolves around Horn's Oskar who tries to make sense of his father's death during the September 11 attacks and goes in search to find a lock that fits a mysterious key. Directed by Stephen Daldry, this drama movie has been released in limited U.S. theaters since December 25.
