Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock marked another milestone in her career Tuesday when she sank her hands and feet into cement in the forecourt of the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
The 49-year-old Bullock, who will appear opposite George Clooney in "Gravity" next month, made the event a family affair, even bringing her 3- year-old son Louis despite her notorious reputation for trying to keep him out of the spotlight.
"Today I brought him out because this is a family day," she told ABC7. "It was the one exception that I make."
Bullock hailed the governor's signing of legislation aimed at punishing paparazzi who harass the children of celebrities.
"When you go to school and, you know, the airport -- the reason he doesn't like this is he's used to people running at him," she told Channel 7. "So this'll be great. This'll allow children to be children. Take potshots at us, do whatever you want, but I'm grateful, I'm so grateful. This is a huge step and maybe we can keep going so we completely protect children."
Clooney was among the dignitaries who attended the event.
Bullock won an Oscar for best actress for her role in "The Blind Side." She's also best known for films such as "Speed," "Miss Congeniality," "The Proposal," "Crash," "Demolition Man" and "Love Potion No. 9."
