Sandra Bullock: Ghost Hunting In London
Sandra Bullock is currently in London filming a Sci-Fi thriller called "Gravity" with George Clooney, but the Sun, a British tabloid, reports her offscreen activities are more focused on the paranormal.
The Oscar-winning actress is staying in a converted church, but sources say she is asking her producers to investigate the dwelling because she fears it's haunted.
The paranormal patter is reportedly so bad that Bullock is suffering sleepless nights due to "ghostly presences" inside the north London church and a source claims the actress is convinced something is not right.
Bonnie Vent, a San Diego-based spiritual medium, isn't surprised Bullock is having ghostly experiences in jolly old England.
"London has a long, rich history for murder and mayhem," Vent told AOL Weird News. "The properties are hundreds of years old with many highly emotional experiences attached as well as bodies buried in the floors and walls of some properties."
Also, show business celebrities seem to have a knack for picking up ghostly vibes, she says.
"Celebrities are more open-minded, live-and-let-live types," she said. "They're already living outside of the box. Plus, they travel a lot and staying in different places makes you recognize when a room has a unique energy to it."
Vent, who said she has worked as a "spirit advocate" to deliver messages from beyond the grave for celebs like Michael Jackson, George Carlin and "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, believes Bullock is going about things the right way by trying to investigate the spooks rather than removing them willy-nilly.
"She needs to check out the property," Vent advised. "Whatever is haunting her could be from either the building or the land itself."
Vent also suggests Bullock take matters into her own hands by setting up a tape recorder in her room and asking questions in it for five minutes.
"She should leave five-second intervals in between questions," Vent explained. "Then when she listens back to the tape, she should listen for any strange sounds that shouldn't be there."
However, paranormal researcher Bryan Bonner of the Rocky Mountain Paranormal Research Society has some slightly different advice for her.
"I would suggest that one never ask movie or TV producers to look into any type of paranormal activity," Bonner said. "The only thing that will do is create another movie or TV show. However she might be able to get a credit as co-writer."
Bonner says Bullock's paranormal problem is actually quite common and has a very simple solution.
"The best thing for her to do would be to go to another place to stay," he said. "Once a person is convinced that a place is 'haunted,' it is hard for them to think anything different."
