Sandra covers People’s December 14 issue. She introduced her daughter Laila. Don’t forget to pick up your issue on the newsstand this friday:
The Oscar winner, 51, reveals exclusively to PEOPLE in this week’s issue that she has adopted a daughter, 3½-year-old Laila (pronounced Lila), a little girl from Louisiana who had been in foster care.
“When I look at Laila, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was supposed to be here,” says Bullock, who adopted son Louis, 5, in 2010.
“I can tell you absolutely, the exact right children came to me at the exact right time,” she adds.
The process of expanding her family began three years ago, with Louis helping to lead the way.
“Louis spearheaded this whole journey,” she says, and while the two siblings have since formed an inseparable bond, Bullock says the first stages of bringing Laila home required patience and plenty of reassurance.
“I knew she was scared, and all I wanted was for her to know Louis and I weren’t going anywhere,” she says of her daughter, who has brought “pink and glitter in the house mixed with Legos and Batmans.”
In new family photos featured in PEOPLE, taken by L.A. photographer Bryan Randall, whom Bullock has been dating, the star — who hopes to shine a light on the 415,129 children currently in foster care in the U.S. — reveals the playful dynamic she shares with her two children.
“My family is blended and diverse, nutty, and loving and understanding,” she says. “That’s a family.”

The burgeoning creative partnership between George Clooney and Sandra Bullock that yielded this weekend’s “Our Brand Is Crisis” (in which Bullock stars, Clooney produces, and David Gordon Green directs), is set to kick up a notch in the near future. A new “Ocean’s Eleven” film is in the works, only this time, in line with the recent Hollywood gender-swapping trend, it’s due to feature an all female line-up, with Bullock in the lead, and Gary Ross (“The Hunger Games,” “Seabiscuit,” “Pleasantville”) directing.
Warner Bros. has given an awards-season release date of Oct. 30 to political drama “Our Brand Is Crisis,” starring Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton.
David Gordon Green directed from a screenplay by Peter Straughan (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”). The film is an adaptation of the 2005 documentary of the same name, which follows a group of American consultants who accept the challenge of getting an unpopular Bolivian president re-elected. In the upcoming feature, Bullock plays a maverick political consultant, “Calamity” Jane Bodine, who comes out of retirement to lead the team, while Thornton portrays her enemy.
Anthony Mackie, Scoot McNairy, Zoe Kazan, Ann Dowd, Reynaldo Pacheco, Dominic Flores, Louis Arcella, Octavio Gomez Berrios and Joaquim de Almeida also star.

It’s not every day that Oscar winner SANDRA BULLOCK stops by! The talented actress and People’s Most Beautiful Woman is here to talk about her animated summer film, “Minions,” in which she voices the world’s first female supervillain! Of course, Sandra is nothing but nice… and Ellen is thrilled to have her here!
Sandy interviewed her Miss Congeniality Co-star and old friend Candice Bergen for The Interview magazine April issue. Great idea and it’s a lovely interview, check it out:
Bergen’s old friend and Miss Congeniality (2000) co-star Sandra Bullock recently caught up with her by phone to discuss failing in college, raising children, and the joys of carbohydrates.
CANDICE BERGEN: It’s very cold here. We’re just sitting by the fire in our country house in France planning a wedding.
SANDRA BULLOCK: I’d rather be in Paris with a nice bottle of wine than in a little farmhouse, to be honest.
BERGEN: We’re drinking! [both laugh]
BULLOCK: Oh, good! I’d like you to continue drinking because as we get in-depth, there’s going to be some hard-hitting, probing questions. I want some honest answers coming from you, okay? [laughs]
BERGEN: I was counting on nothing less from you.
BULLOCK: I’m going to go all the way back. So few people are actually California natives, I’m finding. You were born and raised in Beverly Hills. You were born into an industry family that was a huge part of Hollywood. Was it normal for you, or did you know that you were born into this unique family situation?

Bullock is repped by CAA. The Tracking Board
Sandra Bullock has transformed from “America’s sweetheart” to Scarlet Overkill, a world-class female supervillain in the forthcoming Minions.
Yellow, pill-shaped Minions seek to serve the baddest of bad, and in the groovy, late-1960s setting of Minions (out July 10), Scarlet checks all the right boxes.
Minion henchmen. The creatures showed a knack for bringing accidental havoc to their master Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) in 2010′s Despicable Me and 2013′s Despicable Me 2.
The spinoff prequel Minions is an origins story that shows the creatures have historically hurt their beloved evil masters throughout history — unintentionally killing baddies from Tyrannosaurus rex to Genghis Khan.
