(AP) Sandra Bullock says her training as a dancer and carrying around her 40-pound (18-kilogram) 3-year-old helped her to get into top shape to play an astronaut drifting through space in "Gravity."


Bullock plays a scientist stranded hundreds of miles above Earth with a wise-cracking astronaut George Clooney when debris destroys their space shuttle. Bullock said Wednesday before the film's world premiere at the Venice Film Festival that her character had given up on life because of a tragedy, and she wanted to express the physical changes brought by enormous loss.


Bullock said "I wanted her to lose everything feminine or maternal."


Clooney deftly deferred a question over possible U.S. intervention in Syria, saying "I actually thought you would ask me about Ben Affleck playing Batman. But no, it's Syria."
