That's what it's all about
Sandra Bullock suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.
The 57-year-old revealed this for the first time at the “Red Table Talk” by Jada Pinkett Smith (50).
The reason for her mental health problems was an incident in 2014 when a stalker broke into the actress' villa.
In the program “Red Table Talk” by Jada Pinkett Smith (50), Hollywood star Sandra Bullock gave one of her rare interviews – and let her look deep into her soul . The now 57-year-old was visited by a stalker in 2014. The man entered her villa without permission while the actress was at home.
“I was hiding in the closet and just thought, 'This won't end well,'” recalls Bullock. The “Oceans 8” actress also revealed that she was incredibly grateful that her son Louis (11) was not with her at the time, but slept with his nanny. “Our nanny suggested that she take him with her and he could sleep with her. She knew that I still had an appointment in the evening and that I would be home late, ”she recalls.
«I wasn't the same»
One thing Bullock is sure of: If her four-year-old son had been home, her life would be different today. “I would have run into his room at once. That would have changed our fate forever », said the mother of two. “I wasn't the same after that. I broke up. »
