Sandra Bullock: Today Show Interview!
The 46-year-old actress spoke about how she got involved with Warren Easton Charter High School with board member Arthur Hardy. Here are a few highlights:
Arthur Hardy, on New Orleans welcoming Sandra: “The whole city has fallen in love with her. She belongs to us – don’t mess with Sandra! I’m serious – it’s like, you hurt her, you hurt us, and you better be ready for a fight!”
On finalizing baby Louis‘ adoption: As sterile as the room seemed, it felt so rich – it felt like it was time. And the process is the way that the process is for very, very good reasons and I did not circumvent – I wanted to do everything exactly the same way everyone else did. It was nice to have someone say, ‘I think you’re a good parent.’”
On keeping Louis’ adoption secret for so long and retaining privacy: “It takes good people with integrity. I remember, I read something like ‘How did someone keep a secret?” and it’s – human beings exist that have integrity, that know how to keep their mouth shut – that know the picture, that don’t sell out their friends. Those people are all over the place, but again, we don’t like to talk about it ’cause it doesn’t sell a magazine, but I was blessed with the same friends that I’ve had since before things got really special for me…when things get bad, they’re still the same friends.”
