LOS  ANGELES: Sandra Bullock admits she’s afraid of flying! In her new sci-fi thriller Gravity, the Oscar-winner plays an astronaut adrift in space. For the role, Bullock had to be strung up in a specially made harness within a cube with her feet strapped together.

But she admits it beat the alternative - filming in a plane that simulates zero gravity known as the “vomit comet.” “I’m deathly afraid of flying” Bullock told reporters at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday. “Anything they asked me to do after that, I couldn’t care less what it was … I didn’t care [as long as] it wasn’t in the vomit comet.”–SP
