She calls him her "dream man" but Sandra Bullock's son, Louis, pulled her out of a dark hole in the wake of her split with husband Jesse James.
The Heat star had just adopted Louis when she learned that Jesse had cheated on her with three other women. It was a bad time for the star, who'd just won an Oscar for The Blind Side, but having the baby boy to care for gave her a reason to get out of bed in the morning and helped her to move on from the pain and humiliation she felt.
"When Louis came along I had nothing," she admits in an interview with German newspaper Bild. "I still would have dreamed, but now he is my only dream, to grow old with my son. I will love it to watch him grow. Every day when I wake up, I say that to myself."
Sandra says her days now revolve around the 3-year-old, who she describes as a "little dictator who determines my life." She wakes up at 5:45 a.m., starts the day with a green tea and preps that night's dinner, then she checks her emails and at 7 a.m. she wakes Louis and makes him breakfast.
"7:45 I drive him to school. Back home. Work out. Computer. Phone calls. Back to school. Lunch," she says. "Then swimming class or anything else. Then it is time for a bath. He goes to bed and I'm going to bed… I have a very sexy life!"
