More than three years into her marriage to Jesse James, Sandra Bullock says she enjoys being a stepmom – though she hasn’t ruled out having her own children as well.
“I have family in spades,” Bullock, 44, tells InStyle for its March issue. The actress’s husband has three children – son Jesse Jr., 11, and daughters Chandler, 14, and Sunny, 5 – from two previous marriages.
“Everything we do is about the kids,” she says. I haven’t had children biologically. I had shut that off; then I met Jesse, and it turned on again. I was like, ‘Oh, that’s that feeling.’ ”
But pregnancy isn’t on the immediate horizon, says Bullock.
“We realized we had to take care of some other things on this planet first,” she says. “I hope to God when we get to a place where all is safe, calm, happy and healthy, it’s not too late.”
Still, she says, “If I waited too long, it’s because we were supposed to do other things. If it is just too late? There are millions of children on this planet that I would be honored to call my own.”
As for her marriage, the All About Steve star says her husband loves her unconditionally. “Thankfully I married someone who loves me just the way I am – and all the nuttiness that goes into me,” Bullock says.
“My greatest joy is making our home what it’s supposed to be,” she says. “Being a good wife, a good stepmom, a good current wife to the ex-wife. We’re a family.”
Sandra Bullock. You have to believe me that the Miss Congeniality star is whip-smart and able to banter with the best of them. The woman obviously had a fine upbringing and paid attention during school. Face it, it takes a genius to keep getting such young hotties, both onscreen and off.
Michelle Pfeiffer, Diane Keaton, Mandy Moore and Sandra Bullock are gearing up to star together – in court.
The four women banded together recently, filing a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against CompUSA, TigerDirect, Systemax and Global Computer Supplies, claiming the companies use their images to sell electronic products.
According to the January 20 lawsuit, obtained by Access Hollywood, the women claim their identities, which they note are “recognized instantly by the public and have substantial commercial value,” were used without their permission to sell goods for the companies.
In paperwork that accompanied the filing, the women included several ads from the companies for computer screens and HDTVs, featuring the stars on the front of the products. The women are featured in what appears to be clips from some of their movies including Moore and Keaton in “Because I Said So.”
The stars claim they “exercise careful consideration” before allowing their images to be used for commercial value, and are seeking damages over the use of their images.
The women, who list dozens of the films they’ve starred in as part of their evidence, are asking the companies to cough up accounting records related to the sale of products their images were used to sell.
The women are asking a judge to award them monies resulting from the profits of goods sold that their images were used to advertise.They are also asking for punitive damages, special damages, attorney fees and an injunction to stop the companies from using their images in the future.
So far, the defendants have not responded in court to the filing.
