George Lopez speaks out about his visits to Sandra Bullock

“She’s my fairy godmother. She knows how much I care about her. And, you know, when times are tough, friends step up.”

Lopez also said: “She’s a beautiful person, and when she needs friends, of course I’m going to be there.”

The two have been close since 2000, when Bullock discovered Lopez, who was then a stand-up comic. Two years later, she executive produced his hit television show, George Lopez.

“Sandra Bullock completely gave me life,” Lopez told People in a 2006 interview.

Being friend with Sandra what would Lopez has to say to Bullock’s husband, Jesse James, if he saw him on the street?

Nothing, he told E! “Oh, he’d kick my ass,” he said. “I can’t beat him up. That dude’s strong!”
