The message in the film Black Panther has had an effect on Sandra Bullock as the mother of a young black son. She talked to Access Hollywood about it on the red carpet for the Academy Awards.

In the past, Bullock was engaged to Tate Donovan but never married him. She also dated Troy Aikman, Matthew McConaughey, and Ryan Gosling before marrying Jesse James in 2005. Five years later, women started claiming they had had affairs with him during the marriage. He checked into rehab, and she filed for divorce.

They had already planned to adopt a young boy born in January 2010 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She went ahead with the adoption as a single parent. The boy had already been living with them at the time of the scandal. In 2015 she adopted again, a 3-1/2-year-old daughter.

"I started to cry backstage when I was telling [the Black Panther cast not only] how much the film meant to me as a woman but how much it meant to me as a mother," Bullock told Access Hollywood on the red carpet Sunday night.

"That says a lot about where we are in this world and in the world of superheroes," she added.

"I'm so grateful to Marvel because about five years ago my son asked me if there were any brown Legos," said Bullock. "And I said, 'Yes, there are,' and I got a Sharpie, and I turned Spider-Man brown, I turned the Legos brown, and I don't have to turn them brown anymore."

Yet while the actress can appreciate the message that it sends, she has to admit that she doesn't think he's quite ready for it, finding the film a little too violent, but she believes he'll be ready for it in about another year.

But her daughter has all the merchandise from the movie.

"I bought her swag before it even came [out]," Bullock admitted. "She runs around in the Black Panther mask, which is scary when she comes out of the dark."
