'Minions' Star Sandra Bullock Made Film for Son: Wants Something He Can 'Watch and Enjoy'
Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock's five-year-old son, Louis Bardo, doesn't have any idea what her mother does for a living. If Sandra can help it, she would like the boy to be unaware of who she really is for a bit longer.
The actress shared this tidbit in an interview while promoting her latest movie "Minions." She told ITV, "Work just means I leave and he doesn't like it when I leave so that's the way I'd like to keep it for a little while because that's going to change on a dime one day."
She goes on to say that she hopes Louis goes through a phase where he would be embarrassed by what her mother does, the same way most kids usually are. "Because that's what you do, you don't think of your parents as anything they do is cool, you just roll your eyes. I just want him to be like every other kid and go, 'Oh she's so irritating, she does nothing," Sandra said.
"I want him to be innocent a little longer and not know this world is fake because he still thinks it's real," the actress further explained.
While Louis was with her in London for the movie promotion, Sandra didn't bring her son to the movie premiere, according to Belfast Telegraph. She isn't in the habit of doing so, the actress admitted. However, she signed up to do "Minions" specifically for Louis. "I wanted to make something my son could see and watch and enjoy, even though he doesn't know what I do and he doesn't know it's me - I can sit in the theatre and watch him," she told the news outlet. "Nothing makes me happier than hearing that boy laugh. There's physical humor and animation, so hopefully I'll be able to do that," she added.
The time will come when Louis will be old enough to understand her mother's status in Hollywood, and it may even push the boy to try out the movies for himself. If that happens, the 50-year-old mom said that she will remain supportive and would not deter him from being an actor. "If he does I'll bite the bullet, I'll say what my parents did - if you're going to do it, do it 100 percent and you might need a second job, do it for the passion and love of it, don't do it for anything else," Sandra said, according to Mirror.
