“But this year we just stopped. We just stopped. Because there's so much happening in the world where people don't have anything. And we said, ‘Why don't we just make this about other people?’ And they were amazing about it. So, Christmas is three small gifts,” she said.

The Oscar winner gushed over Randall’s close bond with her children. “He's super kind. For the kids he's sort of No. 1 and I'm No. 2. But I get it because he's more fun and has better treats,” she said in an interview.

Bullock was previously married to “Monster Garage” star Jesse James. Their relationship didn’t receive much support from the media, but Bullock defended James. “No one knows what someone is like based on appearance,” she said of the heavily-tattooed motorcycle builder.

She currently promoting her upcoming thriller, “Bird Box”, which will premiere on Netflix on December 21, 2018.

She shared that she brought her children to the set while making the movie.

“Lou was very interested in what everyone's worst fear was. Like, he would go around to the actors saying, ‘Well, what is your worst fear?’ Like, he knew what mine was. Mine was anything happening to them. You know, and I said, ‘I'm not going to tell you how dark I go.’ But I said, ‘Anything that happens to you.’ I think the worst thoughts all day. They know I worry all the time,” she said.

Bullock describes the post-apocalyptic film as “a metaphor for motherhood” and “what’s going on in the world.”

In the film, Sandra’s character blindfolds herself and her two children as she guides them through the woods to avoid an invisible, supernatural entity that leads its victims to commit suicide.
