Sandra Bullock may have been blindsided by Jesse James' infidelity, but by all appearances, she's managed to put the past—and her ex-husband—behind her.
In an interview in the October issue of Vogue, the 49-year-old actress briefly talks about her ill-fated five-year marriage to the reality star—if only to announce that she's moved on and at peace with where things ended up.
"We're all where we're supposed to be," Bullock tells the magazine. "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."
Of course, as her adoring fans well know, shortly after she won her Best Actress Oscar for The Blind Side in 2010, news surfaced that her supposedly doting motorcycle man had been having an 11-month affair with a tattoo model. A month later, Bullock filed for divorce—the same time she announced the adoption of her then 3½-month-old son, Louis.
Despite that tumultuous time, The Heat star says she's definitely in a better place now, adding, "I am so lucky to be sitting where I am sitting."
As for the arrival of Louis in her life, Bullock was nothing if not ecstatic. She says she wanted to reveal her good fortune onstage at the Oscars but ultimately decided against it. Instead, she dropped a subtle hint in her acceptance speech when she thanked "moms that take care of the babies and the children no matter where they come from."
The thespian is next set to star in Alfono Cuaron's space thriller, Gravity, for which she's garnering critical acclaim playing a NASA astronaut stranded in orbit opposite old pal George Clooney. The film is due out Oct. 4.
Vogue's interview with Bullock meanwhile hits newsstands on Sept. 24.
