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.
SANDRA BULLOCK is to be honoured by the New Orleans, Louisiana school she’s been supporting since Hurricane Katrina.
The actress will be inducted into the Warren Easton High School hall of fame later this month (May09).
The thrilled Miss Congeniality star says, “I feel honoured to have been a very small part in the rebuilding of a city that I have loved since I discovered it, and, like so many, have taken all it has to offer.
“It’s only right that I give back to ensure it has a future. And I have fortunately seen some of that future, graduate from Warren Easton.”
Reports suggest Bullock has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the school since Katrina ravaged the area in 2005.
Arthur Hardy, the school’s hall of fame committee chairman, tells U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, “Sandra did not attend Warren Easton High School, but we proudly claim her as one of our own.”
SANDRA BULLOCK has designed special seat-belts so her two pet dogs can ride safely in her car.
Friends claim the the actress is terrified her pooches, Ruby and Poppy, will be hurt in a collision, after her car was struck by a drunk driver last April (09).
And that incident, coupled with a plane disaster which cost her her pets a decade ago, has made her strap her dogs up.
A source tells Star magazine, “More than 10 years ago, all her dogs died when they rode cargo on an airplane. She was devastated and vowed never to let anything bad happen to her pets again.
“A lot of people think she’s overdoing it, but she doesn’t care. At least she knows her dogs are safe.”
Actress Sandra Bullock met with Legends owner Gentleman Gene Rotondo for an hour earlier in the week at his Belmont Shore restaurant, and they resolved their differences growing out of Bullock allegedly skipping out on throwing the first pitch at the Dirtbags’ recent home opener against USC.”All evidence points to the fact Sandra knew nothing about it, and I’m sorry about the whole episode,” says Rotondo, who was led to believe by a personal assistant that no longer works for him that Bullock had been lined up for the event. “Sandra was very classy about the whole thing, and I have tremendous respect for her.”
Rotondo also spoke briefly on the phone to Bullock’s husband, Jesse James, about the incident.
“It’s all ended benignly,” says Gentleman Gene, gently putting an end to what had become a stirring local drama.
Sandra Bullock has revealed she and husband Jesse James share their bed with their three dogs.
The Two Weeks Notice star told In Style magazine that she and Jesse, her husband of nearly four years, share their bed with their labrador mix called Kernie, their three legged Chihuahua-Pomeranian called Poppy and their two-legged Chihuahua named Ruby.
She explained: “[The dogs] are always on my side and I get lonely without them.
“On a beautiful sexy vacation with Jesse … I’m going ‘I miss Poppy.’”
Movie star Sandra Bullock was in the Mid-South Monday. She surprised some staffers at Briarcrest High School with an impromptu visit. Bullock was in town to research her new role.
The school’s principal Steve Simpson said Bullock has been cast as Leigh Anne Tuohy, the mother of Michael Oher.
Sandra Bullock is reportedly still in the Mid-South, now in Oxford to see where Oher currently is going to school.
