Sandra Bullock Is Taking a Break from Acting—But There’s a Valid Reason

This just in: Sandra Bullock is taking a break from acting.

The 57-year-old actress sat down for a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, where she discussed her upcoming movie, The Lost City. Bullock explained that once the film hits theaters on March 25, she’s stepping out of the spotlight for a bit. The goal: to spend more time with her two children, Louis (12) and Laila (10).

“I take my job very seriously when I’m at work. And I just want to be 24/7 with my babies and my family,” she said, “That’s where I’m gonna be for a while.”

When asked how she’ll occupy her time, Bullock joked that she’ll basically play personal assistant to her children. “Servicing their every need,” she added. “Their social calendar.”

Bullock also discussed her brand-new movie, The Lost City, and admitted that she saw far more of her co-star, Channing Tatum, than she ever intended. “Channing is so comfortable with [himself],” she said. “He knew it was for a comedy, he wasn't trying to be serious. He worked really hard to make sure when his rear end turned into frame that it was perfect. I mean, I looked, I look for imperfections, and I did not see any.”

Bullock added, “It’s very smooth. We didn’t have to do any, like, visual effects fixes. It’s just like a little baby’s bottom.”

If you need us, we’ll be arranging a Sandra Bullock movie night—perhaps some While You Were Sleeping before The Lost City?
