Sandra Bullock's Son Louis Convinced Her Not to Take 'Unfortunate' Movie Role: 'He Was Actually Right'

Sandra Bullock's son seems to know what's best for her career.
The 57-year-old actress appeared on the episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night, where she talked about her 11-year-old son Louis and his exact career tips. Bullock stated that years ago she passed on an "unfortunate" film after her son convinced her not to take on the role.
"I was approached by something ... but my son said not to do it," she told host Jimmy Kimmel. "I was somehow not where Louis believed I should be ... and he was actually right!"
Bullock added, "I saw it when it came out and said, 'Ooo, this is unfortunate.' He was about 6 years old when he asked me not to and I said okay. "

Despite the good advice, The Ocean's 8 Star revealed that Louis doesn't even see the movies she starred in.
"I'm not his cup of tea," she joked on the show, noting that he would rather watch Spider-Man or Japanese anime. "He's 11 and has really good taste."
Bullock announced in 2010 that she had adopted Louis when he was 3½ months old. "It's just perfect, I can't even describe it any other way," Bullock said to PEOPLE at the time. "It's like he's always been a part of our lives."
The actress is also the mother of daughter Laila, 8, whom she welcomed through adoption in 2015. Bullock opened up to PEOPLE (the TV show!) Earlier this month about her relationship with her children and watched them grow over the years.
"I'm just the mother," she said on Friday as her children see her. "When I'm gone I'll be missed, when I'm there I'm annoying, and that's the way it should be."

When asked if her children think she is cool, the speed star immediately replied: "No, not at all. Not unless I bring something tasty home with me. Last night I came home with donuts. I was So incredibly cool at this moment! "
"I love who you are," continued the blind side actress. "Every day I see who they are. I am one of the lucky people who can be around my children all the time and see who they grow up and will be."
"And who they grow up to, I couldn't be more proud," she added.

Bullock recently pondered how preparing for her new movie The Unforgivable has helped her become better parents to her children.
In the upcoming Netflix movie, Bullock plays an imprisoned woman trying to re-enter society, and while researching the film, she met real women behind bars.
"One of my tattoos was in honor of one of the women I interviewed who helped me get some insight into my daughter. She also went through the care system and there was something like that and she says, 'Oh, my god, that happened to me. That was me, "Bullock told Extra last week.
