Sandra Bullock insists the key to happiness is being selfish and ignoring other people's wishes
Sandra Bullock says her selfish attitude is what's made her happy.
The 'Speed' actress - who is married to motocross enthusiast Jesse James - admits she has always put herself first and doesn't worry what anyone else thinks, even if they correctly advise her that her actions are wrong.
She said: "I never did anything according to what anyone else wanted. That's why I think I am happy. I do everything 100 per cent - even my stupidest missteps. I know when I'm getting ready to mess up, I'm going to do it full-on.
"I look back at some things and go, 'I can't believe I did that. But I know I can make amends,' and we can all laugh at it, because it's my mistake. I try not to blame it on anyone else unless I fully know it was their fault-and then I have no problem pointing the finger."
Sandra also revealed she always speaks her mind because she doesn't want to get taken advantage of.
She added: "I have to fight every single day to live my true life. I don't ever want to come home saying, 'I should have spoken my mind. I shouldn't have let someone say something that I didn't feel was right.' "
