Sandra Bullock hasn't got time for your negative vibes towards Ocean's 8

When asked by Entertainment Weekly if she had heard some of the criticism of the all-female cast in the franchise remake, she had a killer answer at the ready.

"We got some but boy, I mean, I'll tell you, we've got some feisty women that will fight right back," Bullock said.

"It's like, let's just take a breath and let's just see if we come up with something fun. There should be a moratorium. There should be a rule, you're not allowed to say anything nasty until after it comes out. Obviously that's never going to happen."

Ocean's 8 stars the Oscar-award winning actress as Debbie Ocean, sister of Danny (George Clooney in Ocean's 11, 12 and 13), who recruits an all-female squad of thieves to pull off a heist at the Met Gala.

Bullock stars alongside Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Anne Hathaway and Cate Blanchett.

The actress compared the online comments and jabs to the same ones the all-female cast of the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters received, saying the actresses were "put through hell".

"And I'm still trying to figure out why," she added.

"Forget what the final product was! There were four or five of the most talented comediennes in that film. Everyone should've just taken a breath and said, 'let's see what happens'."

Twitter users, predominantly men, have been leaving snide barbs online about the remake, often comparing it to the all-female Ghostbusters remake.

Marcus Lee wrote "Nobody asked for Oceans 8. Did we learn nothing from the new Ghostbusters???".

There was also this cool exchange from a man named Aaron and his friend.
