In March, Sandra Bullock announced that she would be leaving Hollywood to focus on her family. In an interview, the mother of two now explains her reasons further: She no longer wants to validate herself through her work.
After recently shooting two films “The Lost City” and “Bullet Train” with Brad Pitt and Daniel Radcliffe, Sandra Bullock wants to step away from the limelight and take a break from Hollywood as an actress and producer in the future. The 57-year-old had announced this in March.
She wanted to be in the place “that makes me happiest,” Bullock told Entertainment Tonight at the time, and she was home with her two children, Louis, 12, and Layla, two years younger. “When I’m at work I take my job very seriously,” but she also likes to be “with her kids and family 24/7” for the time being.
In an interview with “The Hollywood Reporter,” the mother continues to explain her reasons now. “I don’t want to be tied to someone else’s schedule other than my own,” says the ‘Speed’ actress. and I know it.”
“I just broke”
She considers herself lucky that she has always been able to do a lot, says Bullock. But she adds: “It was like opening a fridge all the time and looking for something that was never in the fridge. I said to myself, ‘Stop looking for this because it doesn’t exist here. You have it. Already have – set it low and be okay with not working to validate yourself.'”
The actress clarified that she would be happy for future film releases even without multiple press appointments. “I shrug when it comes to the press, when it comes to being in the public eye, and when it comes to doing photoshoots,” says Bullock. “I just broke down. I’m no good at that.”
When asked how long she’d like her break to be, Bullock replied, “I really don’t know.” According to “Variety” she previously revealed at an event that she only wanted to be active again as a producer when her children were “16 or 17”. The Texas-based actress will not be seen in public for the next five years.
Bullock isn’t the only one to announce a break from Hollywood. “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds and “Spider-Man” actor Tom Holland have also announced they no longer want to accept movie roles to focus on their families. “Silver Linings” star Jennifer Lawrence returns after a nearly three-year hiatus for the Netflix film “Don’t Look Up” a few months ago.
