Sandra Taking A 'Break' From Showbiz

| Filed under: Film FlickersSandra Bullock


America's sweetheart is taking a break from being America's sweetheart.

Sandra Bullock had revealed that while she knows others want her to step right back into the Hollywood game, she intends to spend some time getting to know her new little boy.

She explains that she won't be making any movies any time soon, saying:

"All I know is that I want to be able to enjoy being a mom. Doing all the things moms get to do, outside in the sun, in the world. The career will have to wait for a bit. I don't want to step into that world until I can find out what room I left my armour in. You need tough skin to be in this business. I don't have tough skin right now and I don't want it."

Totally understandable. You take all the time you need. Tinsel town will be waiting with open arms when you are ready to come back!

    Career suicide. Don't stay away too long people are fickle and they forget quickly. Not hating, just sayin!

    Sandra's earned and deserves her family time with her new son. She already seemed firmly planted in the world of normalcy and real. Hollywood life is not the normal. It's the job.

  14. 14

    The only movie actress who pulled this off was Kate Hepburn. Bullock better understand that if she leaves now, her actress days are done. She can squander her own money on a vanity pix, but that's it.

    I have to agree - career suicide. She won't be able to comeback at 50 as the lovely Sandra. Many women work, and she's slighting many of those women who have to do so. If she were to do a movie, her baby would be so pampered, it wouldn't matter if she were on home or on the set. Just my opinion.

  16. 16

    She is awesome and I think it's the best thing she can do.

  17. 17

    that's a JOKE. us normal people, and normal mothers have to BALANCE life, motherhood, AND work!! why are you so special?! we all wish we could spend all day at the park with our kid and not have to worry about paying for that formula, but we can't! we have to go to work everyday and scrape by! i say screw her.

  18. 18

    Good call. Take it ez Sandra. Take your time and enjoy life…

    I keep thinking the people who bought her Oscar for her are probably not going to be happy. (what a waste!) But she completely deserves some peace and happiness being a Mom.

  20. 20

    She has always been such a class act. It's nice to see that even after all the bullshit she's been through the past few months, she's still keeping it all together the best she can. I think a break from showbiz is exactly what she needs, and to all the people saying she won't be able to comeback, I highly doubt that. She may not have as large of a range of roles available to her but I'm pretty sure there will always be some people out there more than willing to work with such a beautiful, well-spoken, classy woman, who's kept her head on her shoulders quite well throughout her career, and is quite the actress. And even if she never acted again, she's done so much already I doubt it really matters. She's already established herself, years ago, as one hell of an actress and I really don't think she has anything to prove to anyone on that front.

    Re: getgetgetitgirl – You are kidding me, right? The reason she can afford to take a vacation and only have to focus on taking care of her child is because she's worked for YEARS already- most likely making more money with ONE of her movies than you do busting your ass at your minimum wage job in YEARS. She was acting back in 1987 making her money and establishing a name for herself, I think she deserves a break, and after all the hard work she's put in already, she can gratefully afford to do so with no problem. Perhaps if you had established yourself and saved up a little bit of money before you decided to have children you wouldn't have to bitch and complain and sound like a jealous twat on a gossip site because your obviously more than just a little jealous and bitter you can't. I don't get paid millions to make movies but I still had enough to take some time off of work when I had my son. Maybe you need to learn to manage your finances a little better.

  22. 22

    i'm not surprised. i knew this was gonna happen. she just adopted a new kid, is moving to new orleans, had her husband cheat on her with MORE THAN ONE SKANK, she needs a change of scenery.

  23. 23

    She's working NOW. This is all a publicity ploy. She bought a black baby, she'll be shilling that poor kid left and right in the media to resurrect her image, because she CHOSE to marry a nazi nutjob, and the producers in Hollywood don't like that!

  24. 24

    Good for her (I mean it.) It must nice to live the Hollywood life.. You can live for a loooong time without working. In the real word - not gonna happen.

  25. 25

    This is some wierd crazy scank

  26. 26

    You take all the time u need.
    You deserve to be happy with your wee one.
    Such a funnie, wonderful, down to earth chick…just luv her.

  27. 27

    Re: Edgenet – hahaha… duno. she probably taking time off to be with jessie… and have jessie spend time with the adopted one.

  28. 28

    Good for her. Jesse is a big nasty pig lover and I wish he would move out of the country.

    We will miss you and we will wait! Have fun being a mom!

    Re: getgetgetitgirl – Wow your a mess

  31. 31

    I absolutely LOVE sandy and I'm thrilled for her and I think she's doing the right thing for little Louis and for herself. But we will miss her dearly!!!!

    Re: getgetgetitgirl – Wow, bitter much. What, you think Sandra hasn't worked hard for her money? Ha. It's funny how many people seem to think that professions in the Industry do not involve work. For acting, you have to memorize lines, and that can be difficult, you have to pretend to bo someone else, which can be even harder to pull of, especially if you can't relate to the character that you are playing, and if you can't get it right, you re-shoot, and re-shoot, and re-shoot. There's so much more to acting than just saying a few words. So, you know, I believe Sandra, who is a decent, honest, hardworking woman, is entitled to take some time off, and look after her son. If you're frustrated at the fact that you have a mediocre life (and that's the polite way of putting it), then that's your fault, but don't attack women who have built up a successful career and who deserve to spend some time with their family. You don't like your life? Change it. I don't care what anyone says, if you want something, you can get it.

  33. 33

    What the hell is that on her upper LIP!

  34. 34

    Yeah, she's got to take time off and devote some time to the baby she just bought.

  36. 36

    "Totally understandable. You take all the time you need. Tinsel town will be waiting with open arms when you are ready to come back!" SO WELL SAID PEREZ!

  37. 37

    Re: getgetgetitgirl
    What a stupid comment. Sandra has worked for her money and she is very wealthy. If she is able to stay home to care for her baby and that is what she wants to do, then she should do it.
    Why begrudge her for becoming successful and independently wealthy. Money buys freedom and choices and those choices are for her to make only.
    The fact that you may not be able to do this is irrelevant here. She has earned the money and the right to do what she wants.

    Good. One less actress putting out painful chick flicks this year. Can Kate Hudson and Jennifer Aniston take some time off too?

  41. 41

    Young Hollywood take notice!!!!! This is what grace, class and humanity is all about. Learn from this fabulous women. Bravery is not only on the battelfield, it's right here in USA. Follow this special women'a example and you JUST MIGH have a reputaion that investors wiil take a chamce on.

    This the is the gold stanard which all off Hollyhwood should judge themselves by.
    Hurray for humanity and decencey!!!!!!

    I wonder if loverboy James is going to try to hit her up for 1/2 of everything she made doing movies while married to him. This wouldn't surprise me, even considering his off hours activities. Hopefully there's a pre-nup. I'm assuming she made more than he did.

  43. 43

    she can take all the time she needs, we all love her and shes going to be a good mom
