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.”

Sandra Bullock denies adopting a second child

Sandra Bullock denies adopting a second child

Despite the rumors that have been making the rounds, Sandra Bullock said that she is not in the middle of adopting another child. Reports began swirling earlier in the week that Sandra had adopted a baby daughter. Now, she’s setting the record straight.

While speaking out in promotion of her latest movie “Our Brand Is Crisis,” she debunked the new adoption rumors.

She told reporters, “There’s only one adopted child in my household and his name is Louis. If I had a second adopted child, everyone would be hearing about it. I would be loud and clear. And say, ‘Yes, I have officially adopted a second child.’ Right now, Louis must be it.”

If she ever does decide to adopt a second child, I’m sure she’ll be screaming about it from the rooftops!

Sandra Bullock is teaching her son Louis about racism

Sandra Bullock is teaching her son Louis about racism

Sandra Bullock has revealed that she is teaching her adopted son Louis all about racism. She talked with BET about teaching her five-year-old all about the ugliness in the world as well as the beauty.

She said, “He fully understands what that means. He doesn’t understand why people judge each other based on the color of their skin, but he knows they do. He also knows there’s sexism, he knows that there’s homophobia.”

She revealed, “I want him to know the truth, but I also want him to know the good in the world as well. Those are hard conversations to have. It’s not any conversation any parent wants to have with their child, is that you’ll be judged by the color of your skin rather than the content of your character. But it exists, and I want him to be safe and I want him to be aware.”

When speaking about teaching her young son the topic of racism at an early age, she believes it’s for the best. She added, “I think if you don’t start the conversation early on, you’re doing them a disservice. Once he leaves that house and I’m not with him, it’s his life and how he approaches it is his decision. But I want to know that I did the best I could as his mom to educate him on the ugliness in the world, and also the beauty.”

Sandra Bullock talks motherhood and Jesse James divorce

Sandra Bullock talks motherhood and Jesse James divorce

Sandra Bullock covers the latest issue of “Glamour” and inside, she discusses motherhood and her highly publicized divorce from Jesse James.

She says that her first priority in life is her son Louis and keeping him safe. She told the magazine, “You come after my son, I’m gonna go postal. I’ve always been insanely private. When I stepped into this, it was still loud. The tabloids were violating. I went, ‘How can people write that?’ I spent a year and a half, two years, distraught, saying, ‘You can’t say these lies.’ I spent years fighting battles you can’t win. As loud as it’s gotten now, it’s the same panic. As much as I profess to being able to shut it out, there are times I can’t, like when it’s hurtful to people I care about. Me, I get it.”

Bullock also talked about growing up after her split from James. She said, “I don’t feel like I was an adult till about five years ago.”

When she was asked about what changed, she said, “Motherhood and divorce – and not just divorce but the onslaught. Again, I let it affect me. I heard it all. And I had to step back and go, ‘I have the greatest gift in little Louis, and I’m gonna let him see the woman I want him to know.’ So a child forces you to get your s**t together. in the best way.”

When speaking about having an African American son, she said, “You see how far we’ve come in civil rights—and where we’ve gotten back to now. I want my son to be safe. I want my son to be judged for the man he is. We are at a point now where if we don’t do something, we will have destroyed what so many amazing people have done.”

She added, “You look at women’s rights; it’s turning into a mad, mad world out there. But sometimes it needs to get really loud for people to say, ‘I can’t unsee this.’ If I could ride in a bubble with him for the rest of his life, I would. But I can’t.”
