'Bird Box' star Sandra Bullock looks ageless in a stunning canary yellow faux fur coat and black leather boots

While Sandra Bullock gears up for the release of her movie 'Bird Box' on Netflix this Friday, the star spent Monday night in New York City for her appearance at 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'. The 54-year-old actress looked quite elegant and wrinkle-free as she arrived in a polka dot dress with a mustard yellow faux fur coat and pink lips.
The actress looked a total stunner in her ruched calf-grazing polka dot dress that she paired with a bold yellow cover-up, adding thigh-high pointed black boots with delicate earrings to complete the look. She styled her hair sleek and center-parted with pink lipstick on her pout and kohl liner on her lids.
Bullock, in her latest thriller, plays a mother of two young children, who is a character that mirrors her real-life role as a mom to an eight-year-old son and a six-year-old daughter. She recently opened up about her kids' time with her child co-stars, Vivien Lyra Blair and Julian Edwards, at the premiere of 'Bird Box' in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City.
Although the movie is mostly about trying to protect herself from an unseen evil, Bullock admitted that the mood on the sets was a far cry from the sinister setting of the film. In fact, it was such a light atmosphere that she used to take her kids, Louis and Laila, to the set where they got a chance to hang out and play with the young stars of the film.
"LEGOs was a big thing, [also] tag and catch," Bullock recalled. "I mean, when you get to little people, there are basically three things that they like to do, and all three of those were done on set." The actress also added how she feels extremely privileged to work in an industry that gives her the chance to have her kids so close while working.
"How many people would love to be able to take their children to work and have that embraced?" Bullock asked. "It's so accepted and I feel like every set that I work on has sort of a familiar aspect to it [and] a safe feeling for family members."
Further along the conversation, Bullock admitted that unlike her 'Bird Box' character, who fears the decision and consequences of being a mother, the actress never felt any fear of motherhood, and actually embraced the prospect early on. "I would have been pregnant or knocked up at 17," the Oscar winner shared. "I wanted to be a mom at a very young age. So I kind of felt the drive and the desire to."
The only reason why that didn't happen? "My mother knew that and she kept me under lock and key," the actress explained. Bullock was a mom for the first time in 2010 when she adopted son Louis, and welcomed daughter Laila into her life via adoption in 2015.
