Bullock changes the channel if she sees herself on television and her five-year-old son Louis once thought she was an astronaut after seeing a clip of her in the blockbuster Gravity.

She tells People magazine, "If I see myself on TV, I flip right by it, I do not stop. Louis doesn't know what I do. He's seen a couple of glimpses. He thought I was an astronaut for a while. I want it to be so inconsequential and such a non-issue. I want him to be embarrassed by me like all other parents."
