Los Angeles: Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock, who recently teamed up with Tom Hanks in `Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close`, says she had to do tougher parts than her co-star.
The 47-year-old actress said Hanks missed the intense parts since the `Larry Crowne` actor was mostly seen in sweet moments with Thomas Horn, Ace Showbiz reported.
"I mean he [Horn] and Tom got to play, and really connect and bond and show that similarity," she said.
`Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close` revolves around Horn`s character who tries to make sense of his father`s death during the September 11 attacks and goes in search to find a lock that fits a mysterious key.
Bullock previously said that she had to hold back her maternal instincts when filming the post 9/11 movie.
"When you have maternal instincts towards a child the first thing you want to do is go to that child and just protect - and that was exactly what I was not gonna do. It was hard," she said.
