Bul­lock’s wax like­ness looks eerily like the real thing

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

EV­ERY­ONE knows a Madame Tus­sauds wax fig­ure can look re­mark­ably like the real thing but they seem to have re­ally hit the nail with their new San­dra Bul­lock fig­ure at the Hol­ly­wood out­let of the famed wax mu­seum. Or at least that’s what it seems like from the pic­tures Tus­sauds sent around to­day. Tus­sauds says she’s “red car­pet ready,” dressed in a flat­ter­ing red dress, clutch in hand, black spike heels on her feet, hair long, straight and combed to one side. The fig­ure is so life­like that it’s un­nerv­ing. It’s Bul­lock’s first ap­pear­ance as a Tus­sauds wax fig­ure, mak­ing its de­but just two weeks be­fore the Academy Awards. The Os­car win­ner is up for an­other this year for her star­ring role in Grav­ity. The Bul­lock fig­ure joins the likes of Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, Au­drey Hep­burn, Humphrey Bog­art, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Anis­ton, Johnny Depp and Will Smith, among more than 100 fig­ures. Tus­sauds Hol­ly­wood, for the first time, plans to launch 12 new fig­ures in 12 months in 2014.
