Sandra Bullock praised the imagination, kindness and inspiration of her Gravity director, Alfonso Cuarón, at the 66th Annual Directors Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday.
She also teased the heck out of him.
Bullock, 49, joked that her son Louis, 3½, may need therapy for years to come after watching his mom rigged up on set with equipment that made it look like she was adrift in space.
As she spent hours in her astronaut's suit, locked down in a 9-by-9-ft. light box with only an earpiece to hear, Bullock said Cuarón would offer her a little break and comfort after shooting intense scenes by showing her son's face.
