Why we love Sandra Bullock

By Liz Kelly

Gallery: Sandra Bullock and Jesse James

Sandra Bullock is perhaps unique among the creatures roaming the West Coast zoo we call Hollywood. Why? Because despite a 2010 that raised her to the heights of professional glory, then threatened to drown her in the depths of an icky marital scandal, she's remained true to herself and managed to find her way back into the spotlight on her own terms. And those terms are good. Better than good: The woman is a survivor.

Yesterday, when news broke that Bullock had adopted newborn Louis Bardo back in January, we were stunned. Not only had she managed to keep the adoption under wraps for almost four months, she -- in one winning People magazine cover -- completely changed the Sandra Bullock story. No longer is she the scorned wife, hiding in her mansion to avoid the glare of her soon-to-be-ex's sordid sexual side trips. Instead, she is the glowing mom who says she's spent the past few months doing what most new moms do -- staying up all night, feeding baby, changing baby and basically enjoying her time with three-and-a-half-month-old Louis.

And, despite some early -- yet feeble -- blowback from commenters on this site and others, Bullock can hardly be accused of using the adoption as a "distraction" from the messy breakup of her five-year marriage to Jesse James. Bullock and James began the adoption process four years ago and actually welcomed Louis into their home back in January. By the time James's mistresses were starting to add up to Tiger Woods-ian proportions, baby Louis had already been a member of the family for almost three months.

Instead, Bullock's splashy People debut reminded us why she is an A-list star while her soon-to-be-ex and his mistresses will forever inhabit a certain ring of Hollywood hell. A ring in which they will forever be hounded by paparazzi and tabloid reporters who will not rest until they've found every Nazi-related reference to James and his bevy of buxom tattooed babes they can.

Where James comes off as pathetic, Bullock is strong. She admits to "bittersweet" feelings about her estranged husband, but not once in People's lengthy interview does she trash him or take him to task for his transgressions. Instead, she concentrates on the past few months she's had with baby Louis and her hopes for her family's future -- a future that, again to her credit, includes ongoing contact with James's three children.

Sure, there are questions: How did Bullock remain, after five years of marriage, oblivious to her husband's infidelity and apparently poor decision-making skills? My assumption: Love is blind. We all have pasts and Sandra was willing to forgive James his in exchange for what looked -- at least prior to March 17, when word of his affair with Michelle "Bombshell" McGee broke -- like a bright future together.

Now Bullock will face that bright future with another man at her side, her son Louis. And I, for one, wish them every happiness.

What about the obvious? This lovely child is black and with the controversy that her soon to be ex-Jess is white with his Nazi pics * ex-bombshell Nazi girl on the side * his Hitler pose pics. This should be a major concern! The Nazi beliefs are derogatory towards ethnicity. Sandra was obviously aware of Jess Nazi beliefs and tattoos and paraphernalia he had around his shop. To put it simply how will she protect her innocent child from Jess the Nazi believer?! Im concerned for the well fair of this child to grow up to be a proud african american. The adoption agency and african community should seriously investigate and reconsider the childs welfare, how can they let this child be adopted with all that conflict going on? For Money??? I know love is love, but in reality we dont want a innocent child even remotely being in close contact with a Nazi believer especially a child of a african american heritage and proud culture. Whats everyone feed back on this?

antoinettemedina, the good news is that Bullock is adopting Louis in her capacity as a single parent, so Jesse will have no role in the child's life.

I have tremendous respect for women who can hold it together when their husbands are falling apart.

This is one instance where adopting a child can have some unique advantage over giving birth to a child. All the best wishes to Sandra and Louis.

To antoinettemedina - I do not understand how you can think, for one minute, that Sandra Bullock will not be the best parent little Louis can have. You are digging for dirt and a reason to deny her this precious little boy that she has taken to her heart. How can you think she will not protect him from any harm . . . I believe Bullock had no idea Jesse James had Nazi stuff or had taken photos that would make you wonder his stance on Nazi history. We cannot blame her for his actions, insensitivity, crassness . . . Stop trying to make trouble for a deserving new mother. Trust that Sandra Bullock will always do the right thing. Stop putting labels where there are none. Let there be nothing but joy and Sandra Bullock as Louis Bullock continue their journey of life.

Great article! I am so happy for Sandra! I am also a single mom who adopted, my son is 11 years old now. My son is my greatest joy! As an adoptive parent I can tell you I truly believe we are matched with "our child" the one we are truly meant to have. You just know the second you lay eyes on them, that they are your child! Louis is soooo cute, reminds me so much of my son at that age! Much happiness to the entire Bullock Family!

I thought the movie "Bruno" killed the celebrity "adopt an black/African baby" fad (Madonna, Brangelina) by showing how shallow, demeaning, and racist it really is. Human beings are not purse dogs, status symbols, trendy acquisitions, or ways to show off how much more compassionate and cool you are than all you rubes out there in flyover country. How pathetic of Sandra Bullock to try to change the story from her messy divorce to this publicity stunt, especially since this particular stunt is now old and uncool.

I'm no fan of James. In fact quite the opposite. I don't enjoy the whole biker mentality and lifestyle.

But your article Liz is too full of venom. You make Bullock sound like she some kind of angel. Bullock made a choice in marrying James. She's not responsible for his behavior but she is responsible for her choice. Does the result of the marriage surprise anyone really?

Second, would you write about women who commit adultery in the same terms? There are plenty of examples of celebrity women committing adultery. Tamra Barney for one.

What about the women James committed adultery with. Why are they all coming out of the woodwork and no one is putting them in the same shame bucket?

James is already paying 10 fold for his mistakes and he knows it. That is punishment enough.

You say of Bullock that love is blind. No, Bullock made a choice.

If you judge, then judge everyone through the same lens. Otherwise see everyone as human.

Please, let's not be so liberal in the use of the word "we". I DO NOT love Sandra Bullock! She has displayed nothing but the bad judgement of a desperate woman needing a man to make herself "whole". She knew what this guy was before she married him, but she thought she could change him. HAH! Now she has an adopted baby - of all people who should never adopt, but like others before will probably happen, because "money talks"!

I dont know the truth behind the adoption, but one thing is certain , Sandra Bullock managed to come back graciously, without passive aggressive comments about her soon to be ex.That's how you handle a divorce in the public eye , and avoid tabloids going on for years.
She is the anti Jennifer Aniston for that matter who was whinning on the talk shows and crying in the magazines.
Result : she' still on the moving on phase , 5 years after the divorce.
And please, there were no kids involved.

Why do you assume we all love her. She's over paid under acting but good looking. According to the stats provided by the movie industry the company which employs her loses on an average $1.87 for every dollar she is paid. Actually according to polls she is one of the least popular actresses.
Also why does people who have millions seem to only adopt non white kids or black kids not of this country. UIs she like macdonna just filling the pot for her future needs when she gets so old even mony will not keep her a sex partner?

So Bullock, who has been off the radar screen for years now due to her incredibly BAD acting, apparently has one good role (I haven't seen it so I can't confirm), gets dumped-on by her [obvious] nut-job hubby and suddenly she's everybody's little darling? And who's the bigger nut-job? Him, or her for marrying him, a known philanderer and frequent companion (including husband) of, ahem, porn stars? Who cares if she adopted a greyhound much less a kid? Does it make her a better actress? No! And does it matter in the least what color the kid is? Puhh-leeze! What matters is that she's a TERRIBLE actress.

She probably got the idea to adopt the kid from her latest movie role, which of course makes her fully qualified to be a mother. If I were the adoption agency, I think I would have been taking a hard look at her judgement in picking a husband before I let her adopt a kid.

Although, it may seem cliche for celebrities to adopt a child of another race - the truth is there are many children that are in need of a good home. For those who criticize anyone who is willing to adopt a child - shame on you! As for Sandra Bullock adopting a child of another race - I am extremely happy that she adopted a child from within the United States, as celebrities really need not look outside of our own country to find children in need of a good home and loving family.

Wow, this woman is simply amazing. She personally inspired me to actively pursue my wish to work with children. My mother took an amazing risk when I was in her womb. She had miscarried four children at that point and she was given DES - Diethylstilbestrol - to keep me to term. Unbeknownst to my mother, DES causes infertility in many of the subsequent offspring. And I am one of those.

Since I was a very young child I dreamed of life as a mother of a large family. As I later learned, my body would not share that dream.

The majority of people who know me think that I choose to be a career woman. However, that is far from the truth. That choice was by default when my original dream of motherhood was not an option.

I've always known of the option of adoption, but I had wished to provide my child or children with a two parent family. However, in all of my partner relationships - marriage or long-term relationships, it just was not an option.

I believe that we are here on earth to learn how to give and receive love within appropriate boundaries. It has been a private struggle to watch others bear children while my own body remained silent. I believe that there is a Divine reason why I was not able to bear children, despite the associated pain it has caused me.

Mothering has always come easy to me. Self-care has not. I grew up in a very strange home, despite over-riding love. I was punished if I tried to cook or clean. That work was, according to my mother, was reserved for mothers only. In retrospect I believe that my mother was afraid someone would come along and outshine her in the only arena where she felt she was in ultimate control in the home.

So why share all this info? Because I believe we are here to exercise our consciences through our choices. I believe we met with some sort of Divine guidance counselor before we were born and we actually set up some of the variables in our lives. I believe deeply in God, but not in man-made religion - at least not for my own spirituality.

Sandra Bullock made choices and took risks. She risked for love - with Jesse and then with her new son. Both were based on love. The outcomes, very likely, will be very different.

I am thankful for her example because it has helped me renew my own personal life goals regarding children in need.

God bless, Sandra Bullock:)

Nice article stating the obvious. The beads entwined on the baby in the covershot is an interesting metaphor...I understand they were given by the baby's stepsister to represent Unity in the world (why cant we be friends) at which point I lost all my cookies.

Liz - brava, very well said.

So, SB adopted a black American baby -- I think it's delightful that she went through the long process of approval (notice that it wasn't hurried along by her celebrity), and got a kid who needs a mom. The color of the kid's skin is irrelevant; that he's got an obviously loving home is all that matters.

I admire Sandra Bullock greatly. Not only does she show courage in marital strife, but she did a wonderful thing by adopting Louis. A few comments here alluded to celebrities adopting African American babies because it is "posh." I can hardly disagree more. I am an African American woman who grew up happily in a caucasian family. If it weren't for them, I would probably be in very different circumstances at the moment. Why can't we just consider the love that adoption provides? I believe that when a child, regardless of ethnicity, is in need of a family, and someone wants to provide a loving home, both parties benefit. Has anyone considered that Sandra might not be able to have children? I'm sure she will make a great mom!

I'm sure these adopted African kids would me much happier at home sleeping in their own feces where the average life span in there country is like 7. It would suck being one of these poor adopted kids getting healthy, being spoiled by parents and nannies, having to grow up wealthy, going to the best schools. How dare these actresses want to create a safe environment for children that would probably be dead in a few years without them.

This Newsweek pre-Oscar roundtable with 6 nominees is hysterical. It also gives background to her childhood. (I didn't know her parents were opera singers, etc.)

Posted by: dadada | April 29, 2010 4:01 PM | Report abuse

antoinettemedina, as a person of color I'm disturbed that someone sink so low as to say it's racist for white folks to adopt black children. Considering African American children are the least likely to be adopted, as well as male children, any loving person or family who decides to open their lives and homes to a brown-skinned baby gets kudos from me. It shows that they either 1) were true to themselves in adopting the first child who captured their hearts regardless or race, or 2) that they considered a brown child has a lesser chance of finding a family and didn't want to perpetuate that sad statistic. Either way, it's noble. And that ridiculousness about whether Bullock can raise her son to be a proud African American is nonsense. My mother is white, my father is black. I was raised by my mom because my dad was in and out of our lives. She didn't raise me to be a mixed-race person or an African American, she raised me to be a decent human being. That's all Bullock, or any parent, has to do for her children. Get over the race thing.

Well, as for the writemovies post, I would surmise that Ms Bullock must have rejected some of your screen play offerings or something along those lines. Maybe she was a little harsh in her criticisms of your work but Hollywood is full of large egos and arrogance and I am certain that Sandy is no exception. It goes with the turf.
And as for the "bad boy" issue with Mr Jesse. Yes, it is obvious who this guy is to anyone with eyes and ears, but remember who we are dealing with here in Sandra Bullock; a bigger than life glamorous Hollywood megastar who the media has elevated to cultural icon status with the American public. Like all women, she is wildly attracted to something of the primal energy emanating from a raging bad boy such as Jesse James. But why did she marry him as opposed to simply carrying on a torrid affair and calling it a day when things got ugly? She could have then moved on to the next bad boy de joir and eventually married a respectable provider type....For me the answer is obvious. She started believing her own press clippings and figured that she could do no wrong and that Jesse would calm down when the time came. After all, she is Sandra Bullock who any man would do whatever it takes to be with....Right?...No...Wrong! Remember rule one of the Jungle. Never take home a wild beast and try to tame it. It will end up biting you in the end. Just play with it for a while and then move on.

I simply wanted to post on a relatively neutral platform, without a lot of amateur psychoanalyzing, that I appreciate her very strong stance with respect to dumping the philanderer and moving on with a constructive family structure. She's gone through tremendous grief trying to have kids, took the alternative path with careful consideration, and got the destructive stuff out of her life the minute it hit her (we all know that guys like that are good at hiding it from the wifey, OK?)

This is far better Hollywood than having kids out of wedlock and portraying that as an acceptable life choice for millions of poor and uneducated young women who think nothing of dropping babies and dropping out. Look what's happening to our culture as a result.

For a long time I have had some problems with Sandra.
I always thought she was a closet racist (before she married Jesse).
Point 1:
When the first Matrix movie was going to be made, the filmmakers originally wanted Will Smith to play the lead role. They approached Sandra to play the female lead, but she turned it down because she, quote "didn't see myself staring with the main actor."
Will Smith is black.
I understand people have a right to turn down roles, but she didn't turn it down because of the story. She turned it down because of her hatred for the other actor.
Remember, at that time she was basically a B actress and Will Smith was (and still is ) a very popular actor.
Point two:
When I first saw Jesse on his show, I had concerns about him. While he doesn't have a "white power" tattoo on his arm, he does have tattoos that are generally popular with that crowd. In addition, many of the people he associates with clearly have racist tattoos. Also there are "signs" all over his shop that would give someone pause. Didn't Sandra and Jesse ever talk about race? Ever? Didn't she have any interest in his life? The answer is no. She was already on the same level as Jesse.

Now she has this huge public relation problem of dating a big fat racist.
What's the best way to save face? Adopt a black baby and try to let everyone believe that it was planned a long time ago.
I don't buy it.

I know I will get flack for this, but I'm not impressed with Sandra.

The conspiracy theorists are out in force today on the Sandra Bullock gossip pages.

ANYWAY, as a fan of Sandra this just confirms my view of creating your own luck. She is a very positive person and the fact that Louis came into her life when he did just shows you get what you give.

The first 6 months of my daughter's life, I barely left the house. It was just a big blur of no sleep and feeding and changing diapers. I likened it to being on the space station with no concept of time. I'm just tickled that while "all of this" was going on, she was in that newborn baby bubble. Just a typical (ideal) maternity leave.

How could she have married a racist if she were such a good person? Is he only a pretend racist because it sells to the bottom-dweller market? When they adopted the black baby, did they plan what they would say to him when he grew up and asked why Daddy's old photos had swastikas in them? Or was the baby the husband's way of turning his life around?
