SANDRA BULLOCK Insisted ‘Gravity’ Set Be Baby-Proof

The 2013 Toronto Film Festival - 'Gravity' Premiere




Sandra Bullock said she was up for shooting the film ‘Gravity‘ IF the producers made it fun for her then one-and-a-half-year-old son, Louis. Sandra explained to People:

“I can’t selfishly take journeys anymore because I have to take a little boy along with me. I said … make it so I’m not somewhere not paying attention because I’m so worried about ‘Where is he? Is he having fun? Is this a good life experience?’

“[Producer] David [Heyman] turned a backlot of a sound stage in rainy London into a wonderland for a 1½-year-old,” Bullock said. “Everything was bumper guarded! People go, ‘What is that?’ And I go, ‘That is to protect a child’s head! All of it!’ “

It ended up being especially important to Sandra to have Louis around because her character in ‘Gravity’ lost a child.

“I kept having to say, ‘What would I do [if I lost a child]?’ and I realized I might be far worse off than she is. You just have to go there and know at the end of the day, you can unplug and go home and do something a lot of … people who were parents can’t.”

Sandra seems like one of the most down-to-earth stars in Hollywood. She fully appreciates how fortunate she is in life!
