Sandra Bullock Is Taking A Step Back From Acting

Sandra Bullock has announced she’ll be taking a well-deserved break from acting. 

The Gravity star stated that although she’s not sure how long she’ll be on hiatus, she needs to be in a place that makes her ‘happiest’ while taking care of her children, Louis, 12 and Laila, 10.

“I take my job very seriously when I’m at work,” she explained to ET. “And I just want to be 24/7 with my babies and my family 24/7.

The mother of two went on to say that she wishes to be more of a stay-at-home mum to service ‘their every need’ and 'social calendar'.

She also added that she’s become more hands-on with her kids through the pandemic.

"All the parents know me as the crazy lady with the pandemic," she said. 

"They know their children will return without COVID when they’ve come to our house."

Bullock has two upcoming film projects - The Lost City and Bullet Train - which are set to be released later this year.

Her latest upcoming action-comedy flick, The Lost Citycentres around Bullock, who plays Loretta Sage, a best-selling romance novelist who writes stories about hero Dash, played by shallow cover model Alan Caprison (Channing Tatum).

While on her book tour, Loretta is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire and deranged fan, Abigail Fairfax (Daniel Radcliffe), who believes in the lost city Loretta writes about in her book and demands her to reveal its secret location.

Despite having no previous survival skills, Caprison is forced to rescue her.

The Lost City will be released on March 25, after previously being set for an April 15 release.

Bullock, who is also parenting two children, said that when she returns to acting she would love to film projects focusing on Hispanic and Chicana communities and create stories that focus on ‘imperfect’ family dynamics.

"I love stories that show the imperfection of love within families and communities," she said. 

"I would love to continue doing that when I’m done being a mom. I’ll get back to it. I don’t know when. Probably when they’re teenagers, solidly 16- or 17-year-olds."

Despite taking a step back from acting, boss lady Bullock will still be behind the scenes producing a few upcoming projects. So stay tuned!
