Celebrity mom and actress Sandra Bullock opened up about her partner’s secret stash of cocaine, bringing a humorous touch to the “Red Table Talk” segment with her kids.
Bullock made waves last month when she told SiriusXM host Howard Stern that someone had been keeping her 11-year-old son, Louis, away from her and his sister, Laila, while she was in Los Angeles. He was not allowed in the house because he kept “doing a party trick on his mother,” she said, and it upset her.
Bullock was having a strong reaction to the news because her son had used cocaine for the first time three weeks earlier, and because his father was around every day.
Bullock recounted the conversation she had with her child on Friday, with both of them arguing back and forth.
“The one thing I do know … it bothers me that that’s what my child does,” Bullock said, trying to explain what an innocent trick can really mean in a kid’s mind.
Louis then told her it was because his dad was smoking cocaine.
Bullock was first concerned because the “mom” she’s working with “had cocaine in her bedroom,” she said.
The conversation grew awkward from there and ended with her son not leaving the room to eat until her cast member reached out to fetch him food.
The actress also explained how her children would pick on her because she was a big Hollywood star.
And finally, Bullock noted the thorny issue of the cocaine and fighting for her son’s wellbeing: “I don’t want to lose him over it … I don’t want any dirty secrets I do not want to have.”
Bullock is raising Louis and 10-year-old Laila after her divorce from Louis’ father, Jesse James, in 2010. The allegations against James of multiple infidelities led to the eventual breakup of their marriage.
Bullock recently signed with Netflix to star in the mob film “Bird Box.” She stars as a woman stranded on an island who must survive a wave of monsters after losing herself in a Christmas-themed hit Netflix movie.
Bullock also spoke about balancing motherhood and acting at the E! premiere of “Bird Box.” She said she takes her children on some movie sets “just to make it comfortable for them.”
“I don’t really get the full movie experience unless they’re around — hopefully,” she said.
