In an interview with the publication, Sandra Bullock proclaims loudly that life is not a bed of roses.
“When people are like, ‘Life is good,’ I go, ‘No, life is a series of disastrous moments, painful moments, unexpected moments, and things that will break your heart. And in between those moments, that’s when you savor, savor, savor,'” she said.
In 2010, right after winning an Academy Award for Best Actress Oscar for The Blind Side, Bullock went through a bitter divorce from to Jesse James after reports about his infidelities surfaced.
The actress is reportedly in for another Oscar thanks to her performance in Alfonso Cuaron’s space drama Gravity, starring George Clooney.
She has also starred in the comedy The Heat this year, alongside Melissa McCarthy. Both films have been box-office hits.
But thanks to those hard times Sandy has learned to appreciate life’s gifts. The actress said that she’s content with being single a single mom to her son Louis, 3.
“If [a relationship] should come along, great,” she told EW. “But I feel like I’m not missing anything yet. Maybe one day I will. But my son is 3 years old, which is an amazing age. Four is an even better age. So if something happens, great, but if not, I’ve got plenty to do.”
