Sandra Bullock unveiled her new romantic comedy, The Lost City, at the SXSW Film Festival on Saturday night, where she introduced her star-packed cast while at the same time announcing that she will be taking a hiatus. Sandra Bullock is one of Hollywood's most prominent faces. The star has acted in a number of roles in some big hit productions but has now decided to take a break from acting to focus on her children.
When a young audience member asked about Bullock’s role as a producer in George Lopez’s landmark sitcom, and whether she is planning on doing more creative work with the Hispanic and Chicana communities, Bullock replied:
“I love stories that show the imperfection of love within families and communities. I would love to [continue doing that] when I’m done being a mom. I’ll get back to it. I don’t know when. Probably when they’re teenagers, solidly 16- or 17-year-olds.”
Sandra Bullock has two children. Her son Louis is 11, and her daughter Laila is 8.
