Sandra Bullock shares the phrase she says 'a lot' that her parents couldn’t: 'It was a generational thing'

The 57-year-old actress is mother to her son Louis, 11, and daughter Laila, 9.

On Wednesday, she appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s “Red Table Talk” on Facebook Watch where she discussed her life as a parent, opening up about one of her biggest strengths as a mom.

“My superpower is that I’m good at saying sorry and I’m good at listening,” she explained.

The star received praise for her expertise, with Smith calling the trait “a good one” while her daughter Willow emphasized that it’s “a really good” trait to possess.

“My parents couldn’t say ‘I’m sorry,'” Bullock recalled. “It was a generational thing. It was something that I now, in retrospect, can see their pain and their fear.”

The Oscar winner added: “I say I’m sorry a lot. Even when I’m right, I say ‘sorry.’”
