With teams of make-up artists, stylists and hairdressers, celebrities seem to have it all under control but Sandra Bullock has revealed that even superstar actresses aren’t immune to a little chafing.

Talking about her latest film, The Lost City, in which Bullock stars as author Loretta Sage, alongside Channing Tatum and Daniel Radcliffe, the actress revealed that she suffered from terrible chafing during filming.

Speaking to Zoe Ball during an interview on the Radio 2 breakfast show on Thursday, the 57-year-old actress revealed that her outfit for the majority of the film – a skintight pink sequinned catsuit – was less than ideal for some of the film’s sequences.

She revealed that the chafing caused “tender areas” but that the film’s costume designer Marlene Stewart, was more concerned about keeping Channing Tatum’s face safe.

“Anyone who wears sequins like we do,” she explained to host Zoe Ball, “we know what comes with the territory and that is areas that are tender after several hours of donning such an outfit.”

“But our costume designer was more concerned about me scratching Channing’s face with it,” she added, “she didn’t care if I was in pain, she just wanted to make sure that Channing’s face remained unscathed and I’m like, what about here?”

“Didn’t care,” Bullock joked. “She wanted to make sure that beautiful face of Channing’s was unharmed, and it was.”

Bullock plays Loretta Sage in the comedy-action film, a romance novelist who is kidnapped by billionaire Abigail Fairfax (played by Radcliffe) in the hope that she can lead him to a treasure featured in one of her books.

“Our kinda girl” she explained to Zoe Ball. “She’s ultimately tightly wound, a shut in, fearful human being.”
