Clooney: Bullock is Power Mom

George Clooney is blown away by Sandra Bullock’s “unbelievable” parenting skills.

The pair are good friends and star in the new movie Gravity, about an astronaut and medical engineer who are stranded in space.

Sandra is mother to adopted son Louis, three, and George is amazed by how well she takes on single parenthood.

“Honestly, I can make all the jokes I want about Sandy because I love her, but she’s an unbelievable mom,” he told People magazine. “And that kid’s unbelievably great.”

Although George has developed a tight bond with Sandra and her family, he has yet to take on baby-minding duties.

The 52-year-old actor would rather play with Louis than watch over the little boy.

“I haven’t babysat Louis, but I’ve spent some time with that kid. He’s a good kid. Sandy — I don’t know. But the kid’s good!” he quipped.

Sandra enjoys bringing her son to set where possible and has spoken of how touched she was when staff on Gravity baby-proofed the shoot so he could be there.

Louis also bonded with Gravity director Alfonso Cuarón during a visit with his mom at George’s home in in Lake Como, Italy.

"The cute little anecdote is that he went to me and said, 'Where's George and Rande?'" Sandra previously explained. "I said, 'I don't know!' And he said, 'I need them.' So we went and found them, and they had man time. And I sort of stood off to the side and waited for them to finish. Then I was allowed to take him back."
