Sandra Bullock’s Family Is Super Traditional, Sorry HATERS.

Sandra Bullock Picks Up Louis From School

To those who think Sandra Bullock has a “nontraditional” family, get a load of THIS.

And by this, I mean some very wise words about family and VALUES, people. People magazine reports:

“I have no idea what a ‘traditional family’ looks like anymore,” the Oscar winner, 51, says. “If a traditional home is one that is filled with lots of love and poop jokes, no sleep, schedule books filled with more kids’ social events than adults’ and lots of yelling over who touched who first … then I have a very traditional family.”

Asked if she would ever see herself remarrying, the mom of Louis, 5, and Laila, 3½, replies, “I don’t think so, but I can see myself in a committed, safe relationship where there is lots of love and laughter, and ‘making memories’ is No. 1 on the to-do list.”

Hear hear! I like memories and cute kids and especially re-conceptualizing the word “traditional.” GET IT, GIRL.

Do YOU think Sandy’s fam is traditional? And what does a traditional family unit mean to YOU?

Sandra Bullock Is A Mom Again!

70th Venice International Film Festival - 'Gravity' Premiere And Opening Ceremony

Congrats, Sandra Bullock!

The Oscar winner just revealed that she adopted a daughter, 3½-year-old Laila, a little girl from Louisiana who had been in foster care. Which means Louis (now 5) has a little sibling he can torture. JOY! People reports:

“When I look at Laila, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was supposed to be here,” says Bullock. “I can tell you absolutely, the exact right children came to me at the exact right time,” she adds.

The process of expanding her family began three years ago, with Louis helping to lead the way.

“Louis spearheaded this whole journey,” she says, and while the two siblings have since formed an inseparable bond, Bullock says the first stages of bringing Laila home required patience and plenty of reassurance.

“I knew she was scared, and all I wanted was for her to know Louis and I weren’t going anywhere,” she says of her daughter, who has brought “pink and glitter in the house mixed with Legos and Batmans.”

In new family photos featured in PEOPLE, taken by L.A. photographer Bryan Randall, whom Bullock has been dating, the star — who hopes to shine a light on the 415,129 children currently in foster care in the U.S. — reveals the playful dynamic she shares with her two children.

“My family is blended and diverse, nutty, and loving and understanding,” she says. “That’s a family.”

Nice going with the hot boyfriend and the cute fam, Sandra.  I bet Wild Bill Hickock, uh, I mean Jesse James probably feels really dumb right about now.

Sandra Bullock knew George Clooney found the right woman in Amal

Sandra Bullock knew George Clooney found the right woman in Amal

Sandra Bullock said that she knew early on that George Clooney had found the woman he was going to marry when he introduced her to Amal Alamuddin.

Sandra said that she and George were both committed to not getting married again, but once she was introduced to Amal, she knew that they would be husband and wife one day. In a new interview with Italian magazine IO Donna, she revealed, “I knew that George had found the right person. He made the right choice and so did Amal. They prove that you have to resist to the pressure of a world that wants to see you married.”

Despite George breaking their no marriage pact, she said that she doesn’t see herself getting married ever again. She was married to Jesse James from 2005 to 2010 and he cheated on her with a couple of women. Still, she says that she is happy to just concentrate on her movie career rather than wait on Mr. Right to ask her to marry him.

She joked about George’s situation, saying, “I know, he put me in a very bad situation. Now I’m the only one saying around, ‘Don’t get married again! There’s no need to do it.’ Never say never, but I can tell you that I don’t feel the necessity to do it. One day, maybe, I could get high in Las Vegas and find myself married the day after!”

Sandra Bullock thinks the gender wage gap will take care of itself

Sandra Bullock thinks the gender wage gap will take care of itself

Sandra Bullock is fully aware of the gender wage gap in Hollywood, but thinks that it will be fixed once society changes its perception of women in general.

She said in a new interview with Variety, “We’re mocked and judged in the media and articles. Really, how men are described in articles versus women, there’s a big difference. Once we start shifting how we perceive women and stop thinking about them as less than, the pay disparity will take care of itself. There’s a much bigger issue at hand. I’m glad Hollywood got caught.”

She said that she had an epiphany in her forties when she became fearful of where her career was heading. She said, “I found myself yelling and being angry. And I was like, ‘What is happening to me?’ I was literally fearful. And I realized, it’s because I’m female. It dawned on me. At that day and age, at that point in my career, it was the worst experience I ever had.”

Sandra remains hopeful that things will change as a whole by the time her son Louis is an adult. She added, “I want him to think I’m the boss and women are equal, but I can’t really support that in the outside world. I hope in my lifetime, for him, everything is a level-playing field. We can hope.”
