Motherhood has changed Sandra Bullock


Sandra Bullock says motherhood has made her less selfish.

The Gravity actress, who has a three-year-old son, Louis, whom she adopted in 2010, thinks her most important job is being a good mother and admits it’s influenced the types of roles she takes.

She said, "I can't selfishly take journeys any more because I have to take a little boy along with me."

The Oscar-winning actress also told at a Los Angeles press junket for her new film on Tuesday she only agreed to take the part of a medical engineer in the space blockbuster if the producers made it "an amazing experience" for Louis too.

She said, "I said, ‘Make it so I'm not somewhere not paying attention because I'm so worried about where is he? Is he having fun? Is this a good life experience?’

"[Producer] David [Heyman] turned a backlot of a sound stage in rainy London into a wonderland for a one-and-a-half-year-old. Everything was bumper guarded! People go, 'What is that?' And I go, 'That is to protect a child's head! All of it!' "
