Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy Hit NYC for "The Heat" Premiere
(NEW YORK) -- New York City felt The Heat Sunday night, when it hosted the world premiere of the Sandra Bullock-Melissa McCarthy cop comedy.
Bullock plays an FBI special agent who teams up with a profane cop -- McCarthy's character -- to take down a drug lord. Bullock says she grew close with her co-star as they worked on the film.
"Relationship during the film was 15-to-16-hour days, you have to rely on each other, especially when you're super-tired. ...Our kids fell in love, which was very helpful. I love her husband and that goes for right now as well. They've allowed me into their family and I feel really lucky because of it," Bullock said on the red carpet.
While McCarthy has made moviegoers laugh in the past with hits like Bridesmaids and Identity Thief, there is a certain type of comedy she will not do.
"I wouldn't take pot shots at someone. I don't find it funny. I think it's cheap. I think you can make fun of yourself," she said.
The Heat opens this Friday.
