Sandra Bullock is on a hot streak. After winning an Academy Award for "The Blind Side," her female-driven comedy "The Heat" was a surprise blockbuster, and now there's early Oscar buzz for her role in the upcoming sci-fi thriller "Gravity."
But the 49-year-old — who has appeared in nearly 40 films, which have accumulated a jaw-dropping $3.5 billion globally at the box office — would give it all up in a heartbeat. For what? Her 3-year-old son, Louis, of course.
"I think this business can take the child out of kids so quickly,” Bullock said in the October issue of Vogue, which hits newsstands September 24. "I don't want him to have pressures brought on by what I do. I will quit. I will leave. If I see whatever I'm doing affecting him negatively, I will pack up and move to Alaska."

The Austin, Texas-based actress and her little man are the perfect duo, though that wasn't initially the plan. Bullock famously adopted him in January 2010 with then-husband Jesse James. Before she even shared the birth announcement publicly, her marriage imploded amid allegations that the motorcycle builder was having multiple extramarital affairs.
"We're all where we’re supposed to be," is all Bullock would say regarding her split from James, which occurred in March 2010 just days after she nabbed her Oscar. "I am exactly where I want to be now. You can’t go backward. I'm not going backward. I'm grateful that I'm here, blessed to have what I have.
"Nobody can be prepared for anything," she continued. "If you end up in a place where you can look back and go, 'It happened, but I’m so lucky to be sitting where I am sitting…'"
"Work was my life before. Now I have no reason to leave home," said Bullock, who lists her eclectic mix of pets for the mag: a two-legged dog, Ruby; a three-legged dog, Poppy; a goldfish, Rave (named after the Baltimore Ravens); and — like Jennifer Aniston — chickens! Bullock's squawkers are named after comediennes Carol Burnett, Wanda Sykes, and Phyllis Diller (who was later rechristened Phil Diller when it was determined it was a rooster).
And she's not against adding even more chaos to her house. Having more children are definitely a possibility.
"I'm just sort of seeing where life goes,” Bullock told the magazine. "If all of a sudden someone said, 'You have five more kids,' I'd be totally OK with it."
For now though, "I’m having such an amazing time. Whatever comes our way, we handle as a family. It's not just me anymore."
