When asked how long she would be away from screens, the 57-year-old replied, “I don’t know. I don’t know. Until I don’t feel like I feel now when I’m in front of a camera.”
She explained a big part of her current fatigue was a sense of burnout.
“I want to be at home. So I’m not doing anyone any favours who’s investing in a project if I’m saying, ‘I just want to be at home.’ Because I was always running, I was always running to the next thing. I just want to be present and responsible for one thing.”
The actress confessed she knew walking into “The Lost City”, it would be her last film for the foreseeable future.
She had announced the decision to take a break while speaking with ET. At the time, she explained the move would help her focus on her family.
“I take my job very seriously when I’m at work,” said Bullock. “And I just want to be 24/7 with my babies and my family.”
The full interview airs on CBS and Paramount+ on March 20.
