"Right now, and I don't know how long that will be, I need to be in the place that makes me happiest," Bullock said.
Sandra Bullock is all set to take some time off of her career so she can focus on being with her family, instead.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 57-year-old actress said that after the upcoming premiere of her latest film, The Lost City, she's taking a step back from acting so she can spend quality time with her children—son Louis and daughter Laila.
"Right now, and I don't know how long that will be, I need to be in the place that makes me happiest," Bullock said. "I take my job very seriously when I'm at work. It's 24/7 and I just want to be 24/7 with my babies and my family."
"We don't know how long or how short, but that's where I'm gonna be for a while," she added. As for what her mom duties will be, the actor quipped that it will involve "servicing their every need" and their "social calendar."
Meanwhile, the Oscar winner also spoke about how she's excited for Louis and Laila to attend their first movie premiere with her for The Lost City, which hits theaters on March 25. "They'll back door it. Though Laila really wants to be on the carpet. I was like 'Not happening.' But they get to see it and they all get to invite a friend," Bullock said.
"It'll be the first time out of this sort of dark cloud of the pandemic that they get to feel some kind of feeling of normalcy," she added.
In December 2021, the mom of two spoke to PEOPLE about her relationship with her kids and how she felt, watching them grow over the years. "I'm just the mom," Bullock said of how her kids view her. "When I'm gone, I'm missed, when I'm there, I'm annoying, and that's exactly the way it should be."
When asked if her kids think she's cool, the Speed star immediately answered, "No, not at all. Not unless I bring home some kind of treat. Last night I came home with donuts. I was so incredibly cool at that moment!"
"I love who they are," she continued. "Every day I get to see who they are. I am one of the lucky individuals that get to be around my children all the time and see who they get to grow up and be. And who they're growing up to be, I couldn't be more proud of."
