(LOS ANGELES) — Sandra Bullock says an In Touch magazine report claiming she got physical with director Brett Ratner at a post-Oscars party is false.
In a joint statement obtained by Us Weekly, Bullock and Ratner say, “We think that it’s incredibly sad that in these times, this magazine would resort to complete fabrication, solely for financial gain. There is not a shred of accuracy in their story. We have not seen nor spoken to each for over a decade. We both had a great time after the Oscars, just not with each other.”
Ratner was initially tapped to produce this year’s Oscars telecast, but he resigned after coming under fire for using an anti-gay slur in public.
