Sandra Bullock spoke out Tuesday in her first TV interview since the Jesse James cheating scandal exploded last March.

Most striking about the nearly 8-minute long pre-taped interview was that neither host Matt Lauer nor Bullock ever mentioned James or directly referred to the scandal. Instead, the interview mostly focused on The Blind Side star gushing about her adoptive son Louis, calling him a “little Cajun cookie” and talking about her love for New Orleans.
The Oscar-winner told Lauer she didn’t receive any special treatment during the adoption process.
“I did not circumvent [the process,]” she said. “I wanted to do everything exactly the same way everyone else did. It was nice to have someone say, ‘I think you are a fit parent.’”
Bullock said Bardot is a lively little boy, as he likes “to dance and celebrate.
“I got lucky,” she said. “He’s extraordinary.”
Bullock said she had faith that she’d be paired with the right child, and feels her instincts were right on the money.
She said she wants to be able to tell everyone about the “most beautiful man I know — including his poop schedule.”
And what’s the biggest change, now that she’s about a full-time mommy?
“No one understands the shifting priorities of having a child in your life unless you have a child of your own,” Bullock said. “Everything’s different.”
Everything has been indeed different since both Bullock and James signed divorce papers in June. The fallout: James is moving to Austin, Texas (which is also Bullock’s hometown), while Bullock has been settling into her new home in The Big Easy and working with local educational charities in the community.
