Sandra Bullock Covers Harper's Bazaar

Sandra Bullock Covers Harper's Bazaar

Sandra Bullock graces the June 2009 cover of Harper’s Bazaar, on stands May 19th. Here’s what the 44-year-old actress opened up about:

On that rare, candid paparazzi shot of her and husband Jesse James dirt biking: “I panicked. We were in the desert, no place to pee. So I peed outside. [I thought] on the cover of the tabloids there’s going to be a picture of me peeing by a cactus. And yes, I did it. I’ll do it again.”

On marriage to her husband, Jesse James: “I’ve had to learn a hard lesson in that I’m not allowed to open car doors anymore. It was so hard for me to allow someone to take care of me. It’s not because I can’t take care of myself. But Jesse was like, Just let me do this.

On whether she’ll start a family of her own with Jesse James: “You don’t have to give birth to someone to have a family. I’m not going to spend two seconds of my life wishing I had something I don’t. It’s hard to do it your way when you hear everyone else telling you to do it their way. I just want people to admit that there’s no one way to live your life. Of course, I don’t know what’s going to happen. I could go home today and go, I haven’t started my period.”

On having a recession-friendly fashion sense: “I’ve never really had ‘the closet,’ you know, like the Kimora Lee Simmons closet. I see that and I want the leopard carpet. I want the chaise. But if we learn anything from this economic collapse, it’s just work with what you’ve got.”

On finding freedom in her 40′s: “I didn’t have a teenage or early-20s experience that was free and without worry. I missed the screw-everything, have-a-good-time phase. I was worried that if I didn’t stay on track and work, work, work, I was never going to accomplish anything. Now I’m trying to have fun and have the freedom to do nothing.”

    This woman is 44?! She looks 30! If she’s had anything done, you can’t tell. Fabulous! Go Sandy!

  • bindy

    wow she looks great…maybe some work on her chin, or photoshop? either way she looks great!!

  • someone

    She has always been a favorite of mine..I love how she lives under the radar, and is happy in her own skin..good for her.

  • Cheetah

    I will never understand what she sees in that jessy. He must be one great guy to make up for his looks. ;)

    I always thought she would be the one who would never get married and live a happy single life. there you go, we will never know the real person behind the stars.

    Love her, always did, always will!

  • spicylily, thailand

    I always like Sandra and wish to see more of her movies.
    This is a very good sample of how a 40something actress should be.

    Sandra is charming, faboulous, mature,down to earth and funny,
    Not a fame w….h….e like another 40something queen of tabloids.

  • Parkan

    Insanely gorgeous…

  • sarah

    Sandra Bullock is such a beautiful woman

  • tom

    We don’t see enough of this lovely actress.

    I’ve always prefered Bullock than the arrogant and crazy Julia Roberts. Sandra is so more down the earth, carefree, and funny.

  • Jen

    pretty

  • K

    They should have kept it the red dress instead of photoshopping it white,she looks very pretty in red.

  • Cassandra

    I love her and Jesse together, their so cute.

  • go sox

  • mouche

    Classy lady, and very beautiful!!!

  • Holly

    She is so awesome! It’s refreshing to have a ‘celebrity’ as down to earth as Sandra. She & Jesse make a great couple!

  • me!

    Hey Gerard, yup not just annoyed —– really irritated—FOLKS!

  • whydoicare

    I surprised they didnt ask her about her husband not asking her for money to give to charity on celebrity apprentice

  • eliza

    She looks great. I’m looking forward to her new movie.

  • Carla

    Pra mim, ela é esteril e fica com esse papo de ” não preciso engravidar pra ter uma família”
    Besteira !!!

  • listenuppp

    She does fly under the radar. If she were married to someone as famous as she is, the paps would be more interested in her. Shocked the tabloids don’t have her pregnant every six months like they do with other actresses her age.

  • Holly

    Wow. No flames on this post? IT’S A MIRACLE!!

    I thinK I just jinxed it.

    Anyways .. LOVE HER!

  • Sassy

    What could anyone possibly have to say about her that is negative? She’s gorgeous & talented, and I happen to think Jesse James is HOT. Good for her, he’s a badboy & she is lucky. She’d be fun to hang out with, no airs, etc.

  • xsleekx
