“I love stories that show the imperfection of love within families and communities,” she said during the Q&A. “I would love to [continue doing that] when I’m done being a mom. I’ll get back to it. I don’t know when. Probably when they’re teenagers, solidly 16- or 17-year-olds.”
Bullock has two adopted children, Louis and Laila. The “Miss Congeniality” actress adopted Louis in 2010 and Laila in 2015.
Bullock has talked about the struggles she faces as a white woman being mom to two black children.

“I’m like, come into our home and discover the every parent problem, you know?” she previously told Jada Pinkett Smith on “Red Table Talk.”
“And to say that I wish our skins matched, sometimes I do. Because then it would be easier on how people approach us. It’s our anxiety, it’s our fear, it’s our cross to bear the minute you become a mom. And I have the same feelings as a woman with brown skin being with her babies, or a white woman with, you know, white babies.”
Due to the young ages of the children, it could be awhile until fans see Bullock back on the big screen.
The actress, known for her comedic timing, didn’t disappoint during the panel following the premiere. One audience member asked Bullock to choose her favorite leach scene, “Speed 2” or “The Lost City.”
“Both of them have their pros and cons,” she responded. “I’m a committed actor, whether on a very slow boat headed toward an island where we could’ve jumped off, or digging things out of Channing’s a–. The dig with Chan is one that I would do over and over again .”
