Don’t call them ‘adoptive kids’, they’re just my kids – Sandra Bullock
If there was ever a reason to love her even more, Sandra Bullock anymore, what she has to say about her kids and family is parenting gold.
In a recent interview with InStyle. She explains why she takes issue with her children always being referred to as her ‘adoptive kids’
“Let’s all just refer to these kids as ‘our kids.’ Don’t say ‘my adopted child.’ No one calls their kid their ‘IVF child’ or their ‘Oh, sh*t, I went to a bar and got knocked-up child.’ Let just say, ‘our children.’”
She talks about her kids with such love and kindness, it makes me want to just hang out with her and meet them. Louis, who she calls Lou is wise beyond his years. “Lou is supersensitive. I call him my 78-year-old son. He’s like Shecky Greene, a Jewish Catskills comic. He’s wise and kind. I saw that when they handed him to me. There was a spiritual bigness to him”
And, “Laila is just unafraid. She’s a fighter, and that’s the reason she’s here today. She fought to keep her spirit intact. Oh my god, what she is going to accomplish. She’s going to bring some real change.”
In part of the interview, Sandra Bullock explained why she stays off social media, and it’s comedy gold.
“Oh god, I would have one glass of rosé and be spouting off like [slurs voice], “This is not the truth!” I would have the “nuh-uh” column”
And opened up even more about the ‘Time’s Up’ movement. How she was assaulted at aged sixteen, and afraid that she wouldn’t be believed. It was the catalyst to her donating half a million dollars to it.
It’s easy to give money to people who are incredibly brave and outspoken. But Time’s Up is not just about the actors—it’s about the single mom who’s been abused, bullied, and sexually harassed and is just trying to make every day safe. I also love All Raise, which has partnered with Time’s Up to help close the gap on funding for women and minorities in technology. It’s our duty to do whatever we can to help. I can safely say there is not one person I know who hasn’t experienced some form of [harassment] or doesn’t know someone [it’s happened to].Sandra Bullock
