Okay, let’s see a show of hands. Who wants to spend Christmas with Sandra Bullock after hearing her interview on The Tonight Show last night? Not only will she be opening gifts with her gorgeous – and flirtatious – toddler son, Louis, she’ll also chow down on contraband food.
Sure beats getting another tacky sweater and choking down fruitcake, right?
Bullock told Jay Leno that Louis, not quite 2, is “probably the best baby in the world, but I think every parent says that.”
He also has an eye for a pretty face. Bullock calls him a “flirt” who “appreciates the fairer sex.”
Though Louis draws the line when it comes to Mommy, Bullock says, “He’s got a look where he just cuts the eyes at the ladies, and I’m like, ‘I’m so sorry! I don’t know what’s happening.’ ”
All that cuteness will be busy on Christmas morning opening the huge pile of gifts that Bullock recently joked were her weapon against any “bad mom” accusations Louis might lob against her when he’s a teen. “I don’t think he understands the concept, but he does understand that everything at his height level is really bright with lots of lights,” she told Leno. She added that her son will get into the holiday more when he’s a little older.
Then, once the wrapping paper is gathered up, Bullock and her guests will enjoy a dinner featuring a Christmas tradition her late mother began: imported German sausage. “You fry it up with some sauerkraut and potato salad, but they have to be the right ones.”
There’s just one problem: It’s illegal to ship meats overseas, so she can’t exactly sit down at the laptop and order a few pounds of sausage from a German butcher website. So Bullock enlists the help of some close connections to pack up some links – she’s “not at liberty” to divulge how – and quietly send them her way.
“We just have to break the law a little bit, but eventually someone’s package gets through,” she confessed.
Nothing like a plate of forbiddenwurst to get you in the holiday spirit!
