It’s his holiday! Sandra Bullock joked with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Wednesday, Oct. 28, that her son, Louis, picked out a rather unexpected Halloween costume for his mom this year.
The Oscar-winning actress, 51, who shared that her adopted son is now “5 and three-quarters,” will be a Ninja Turtle come Saturday, Oct. 31. “It’s a classic,” she shared. “He’s a classic guy. We usually match. This year he sort of deviated off the matching.”
Though the superhero theme remained. “He chose… slutty Batgirl,” the Our Brand Is Crisis actress mused. “There’s regular Batgirl, and then there’s the Batgirl for the moms who really like to turn it out… We were going through there’s actually a sensible catalogue, and he said, ‘Momma, you has to wear dis!’ and I said, ‘No, momma does not have to wear dis. I’m not wearing that around your friends, honey.'”
Instead, Bullock revealed her plans to be “covered head-to-toe” as either a “pirate wench” or, what she described as “the basic mime.”
However, Louis would probably not approve. “He doesn’t like makeup. He wants hair down, no makeup, and then sweatpants and a T-shirt,” Bullock said before launching into several hilarious trick-or-treat stories from her own childhood.
Bullock recently credited her son for keeping her in check while speaking in-depth about motherhood to Glamour in its November 2015 cover story. “You know, I don’t feel like I was an adult till about five years ago,” she mused. “I had to step back and go, ‘I have the greatest gift in little Louis, and I’m gonna let him see the woman I want him to know.’ So a child forces you to get your sh-t together. In the best way.”
The Miss Congeniality star has found even more happiness in the arms of her hunky boyfriend, photographer Bryan Randall. As previously reported by Us Weekly, Bullock hired Randall to snap Louis’ 5th birthday party in January. The two relate as single parents.
