Sandra Bullock: Motherhood before Hollywood

Sandra Bullock's sci-fi thriller "Gravity" is easily one of the most-anticipated movies of the fall, and early reviews hint this could also be one of her best.

But if the project and its reception somehow negatively interrupted her life with three-year-old son Louis, Bullock has no problem with leaving Hollywood in her rear view.

“I think this business can take the child out of kids so quickly,” the 49-year-old actress tells Vogue in its October issue. “I don’t want him to have pressures brought on by what I do. I will quit. I will leave. If I see whatever I’m doing affecting him negatively, I will pack up and move to Alaska.”

Yet Bullock is that kind of celebrity - the sort of star who, by all appearances, is unfazed by fame and uninterested in spotlight. When it comes to planning her career post-Oscar, the actress is at complete ease.

“I’m just sort of seeing where life goes,” she tells the magazine. “If all of a sudden someone said, ‘You have five more kids,’ I’d be totally OK with it ... I’m having such an amazing time. Whatever comes our way, we handle as a family. It’s not just me anymore.”

While gossip sometimes tries to pin her down with a partner (the latest rumor being her "Gravity" co-star, George Clooney, expressing interest), the "Blind Side" actress is content that her life is lining up as it's meant to - divorce from cheating ex Jesse James included.

“We’re all where we’re supposed to be,” Bullock says. “I am exactly where I want to be now. You can’t go backward. I’m not going backward. I’m grateful that I’m here, blessed to have what I have. Nobody can be prepared for anything. If you end up in a place where you can look back and go, ‘It happened, but I’m so lucky to be sitting where I am sitting.'"
