BLIND Side star, Sandra Bullock, who has been nominated for best actress in a leading role at the upcoming Academy Awards, admits she and spouse Jesse James are desperate for a break but never find the time to go anywhere.

She said: “We haven't had a vacation in years. We keep talking about it, but we still haven't been.”

The 45-year-old star insists she is easy to please when she finally goes away, as she likes to switch off completely and not have to do anything.

She explained: “We would like to go some place where there is 24-hour room service and then just lie in bed watching Spectra Vision.

“We don't have big demands, but we want movies on demand, we want room service on demand and just to lie there. That's all.

“Well maybe not just lie there – but you know!”

However, Sandra is unlikely to get away soon as she has a busy month ahead.

As well as the Academy Awards, Sandra has also pledged to attend the Razzies, for which she has been nominated for Worst Actress in her role in flop movie All About Steve.

She said recently: “I think it's brilliant. It's exactly the way it should have happened because it's a great leveller.

“If you don't show up for something like the Razzies, then you're a little hypocritical.

“You can't just show up for the good stuff.”

JOHN MAYER has been asked to direct a porn movie.

The Gravity singer – famed for his love of women and wild sex life – was approached by X-rated video giant Vivid Entertainment to write and produce one of its upcoming raunchy films after he said it was his “dream”.

A letter to John from the company's founder Steven Hirsh read: “We believe your incredible talent and passion, which have touched so many, can translate into a highly erotic adult film. Your understanding of the dynamics of relationships would undoubtedly appeal to both men and women.

“I think that together we can create a highly unique breakthrough film that will appeal to your millions of fans. Please call me at your convenience so we can discuss our working together. We're all enthusiastic about hearing about your vision.”

John, who has previously dated Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz, said in a recent interview with Playboy magazine how his biggest dream was to write pornography.

In the article, John also admitted he would always love Jennifer, and described sleeping with Jessica as like “a drug”.
