Sandra Bullock Jokes That Her Son Louis, 5, Picked Out Her "Slutty Batgirl" Halloween Costume

Sandra Bullock has played a lot of roles in more than 25 years of acting in Hollywood, but her son Louis found the one character she just won't play.

In an interview with Matt Lauer on Today, the Oscar-winning star of the upcoming film Our Brand Is Crisis revealed her 5-year-old son's costume of choice for this year's Halloween.

"He's going to be a Ninja Turtle," she said Thursday. "Usually I match; he asks me to match. This year, for some reason, he deviated off that plan."

Things did go a bit awry when Louis decided he wanted to pick his mom's outfit for Saturday. Unfortunately, it was an ensemble that would have landed Bullock in the principle's office. 

"I'm going to call it 'inappropriate Batgirl,'" she said. "I was like, should I be flattered or disturbed?"

"I don't want to wear that skirt and those knee-high boots around your friends," she told the toddler of his pick. "He said, 'You has to.' I said, 'I don't has to do anything.'" 

Since she's not dressing up as Batman's sidekick, what did she opt for instead?

"Momma decided to get some backup, so I got you know, pirate wench and mime," she admitted, adding that the location of the event didn't quite call for that much leg. 

"I'm always in awe of those women who can commit to the naughty nurse at preschool. I can't! It's too early," she said. 

It may be too early to be a naughty sidekick, but that didn't stop Bullock from possibly mooning the cast of her upcoming film. 

"Was it a stunt butt or was it your butt?" Ellen DeGeneres asked the actress about a scene in the film, in which her character Jane Bodine shows her bum to Billy Bob Thornton's character, Pat Candy. 

"Well it depends...on how good it looks," Bullock replied.

Tushy touché!
