Sandra Bullock is already an Oscar-winning, established Hollywood star, but it wasn’t until Wednesday that she got to put her handprints and footprints in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.
The Gravity actress will now be a part of Hollywood history next to people like Humphrey Bogart, Judy Garland, Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, Clint Eastwood and many others who have left a mark in front of the theater.
“I looked back at all the people who have placed their body parts in cement from the very beginning,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I just started realizing that every woman whose name I came across was such a pioneer and had to blaze a trail that was really dangerous, wild and wooly.”
Bullock brought her 3-year-old son, Louis, to the event and he just may have stolen the show. He showed up in a light-grey blazer and a tie, notes Us Weekly. Chelsea Handler also attended the ceremony.
She said she had to bribe Louis, whom she adopted in 2010, with gummy bears and chocolate to get him to come. “I normally don't like him to be in this environment, nor does he care about it, but...this is such a historic thing; it's such a memorable piece of Hollywood. If there's one piece that...I'd like for [him] to be there [it is this],” she said.
Louis also thinks that her Gravity co-star, George Clooney, is “a very cool dude,” she said at the press conference.
Bullock received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005. Gravity hits theaters Oct. 4.
