Sandra Bullock is one of the most widely loved and globally prominent Hollywood superstars today. In one of her old interview back in 2018, Sandra Bullock getting candid says, would’ve been knocked up at 17.
In an earlier interview dated three years back in the year 2018, Sandra Bullock getting candid says, would’ve been knocked up at 17.
In that interview, the Oscar award winning actress opened up on how her mother’s strict parenting style where she kept her under a lock and key prevented her from becoming a mother and embracing parenthood in an early age. More so, in that interview, Sandra Bullock getting candid says, would’ve been knocked up at 17.
Apart from being an ace and versatile Hollywood superstar, she is also one of the most famous and popular celebrity mom in the entire world today. She has given us cinematic masterpiece films with career best performances in films like Bird Box (2018), The Proposal (2009), While You Were Sleeping (1995), Demolition Man (1993), A Time To Kill (1996), The Blind Side (2009), Miss Congeniality (2000), Crash (2005), Gravity (2013), Speed (1994) and so on.
So it was really surprising that this ace and versatile Hollywood superstar waited until she was in her 40’s to adopt a child. But honestly speaking, we know that she has always had a desire to be a mother much before. Speaking in details about it, in her interview back in 2018, she confessed about it and said, she would’ve been pregnant or knocked up at 17 had her mother not kept her under a lock and key.
In her earlier interview with a leading digital Hollywood entertainment portal, sharing about her adolescent desire of being a mom, Sandra Bullock spilled, “I would have been pregnant or knocked up at 17. I wanted to be a mom at a very young age. So I kind of felt the drive and the desire to”.
She also opened up on how her mother’s strict parenting style stopped and halted Sandra from making this dream become a reality. Elucidating on this point, Sandra stated, “My mother knew that and she kept me under lock and key”.
She focused entirely on her career and became one of the most super successful and commercially bankable actress in Hollywood instead of having a child. When she entered in her 40’s, at the age of 46, she adopted her son Louis from the New Orleans several years after the hurricane Katrina. Explaining about it in her interview with a leading and globally renowned entertainment portal back in 2010, Sandra said, “I looked at [Louis], and I just said, ‘Oh, there you are. It’s like he had always been there. It’s like he fit in the crook of my arm. He looked me in the eyes, and he was just – he was wise. My child was wise. The beautiful thing that I was constantly told was, The perfect child will find you. You will find your child”.
Five years later in 2015, she adopted a second child, who is her daughter Laila.
Opening up on her life after adopting kids which primarily revolves around them and not her career that much, Sandra quipped, “Everything is about them being ok, being in school, having what they need, their moments. I need to be there for every single moment that they have. It’s harder for me to leave them than I think it is for them when I leave. I don’t leave that much, and I don’t work that much anymore either.… So my priorities are my kids, my kids, my kids. My family. My family. That’s it”.
Sandra concluded the interview by sharing about hoping how her open minded and modern liberal approach towards having children ends up inspiring more people to legally adopt kids who are in need and also throwing light on this point signed off by telling, “There are hundreds of thousands of children that are ready to be your child. You’re a forever parent the minute you accept the love of that child. And it’s amazing to me how we can take away people’s happiness by telling them that this is the box that you have to stay in. There is no box”.
