Sandra Bullock is good for tourism. The actress gave a national TV shout-out this morning to Rockport, which is where she filmed her new movie "The Proposal" with Ryan Reynolds. During her appearance on "Live With Regis and Kelly," Bullock explained to host Regis Philbin and his wife Joy that "The Proposal"'s Alaska scenes were actually shot in Rockport. Bullock said, of the 'Port, "I'm sadly embarrassed by the fact that I had not discovered that part of America. One of the most beautiful historic landscapes that I've ever been around." We agree, of course. Bullock not only filmed in Rockport last year, she spent money there. Last June, she was spotted buying a shell mosaic at Capt. Steve's Seashell Shop as a gift for "Proposal" director Anne Fletcher.
