Sandra Bullock opens up about her married life.
In the latest issue of “Harper’s Bazaar,” Sandra Bullock, 44, reveals that marrying her husband Jesse James taught her some hard lessons in letting loose and allowing him to dote on her a little.
“I’ve had to learn a hard lesson in that I’m not allowed to open car doors anymore,” Bullock says in the June issue. “It was so hard for me to allow someone to take care of me. It’s not because I can’t take care of myself. But Jesse was like, ‘Just let me do this.’”
Another lesson she’s had to learn is how to be a good stepmother to James’s three children, son Jesse Jr., 11, and daughters Chandler, 14, and Sunny, 5, from two previous marriages.
“You don’t have to give birth to someone to have a family,” Bullock says. “I’m not going to spend two seconds of my life wishing I had something I don’t… I just want people to admit that there’s no one way to live your life.”
Now that Bullock has both the successful career and happy family she always wanted, she says that she finally has the independence she always needed.
“I was worried that if I didn’t stay on track and work, work, work, I was never going to accomplish anything. Now I’m trying to have fun and have the freedom to do nothing,” she said.
