Sandra Bullock has revealed that motherhood has affected her film choices, because she has to consider her son.

The Oscar-winning actress admitted that she has to bear her three-year-old son Louis in mind before she signs on for roles, reported People.com.

"I can't selfishly take journeys any more because I have to take a little boy along with me," said the 49-year-old.

Sandra said she was persuaded to star in Alfonso Cuaron's sci-fi thriller Gravity alongside her good friend George Clooney, because producer David Heyman promised to make it "an amazing experience" for her child.

"I said... make it so I'm not somewhere not paying attention because I'm so worried about, 'Where is he? Is he having fun? Is this a good life experience?'," she recalled.

"David turned a backlot of a sound stage in rainy London into a wonderland for a one-and-a-half-year-old. Everything was bumper guarded! People go, 'What is that?' And I go, 'That is to protect a child's head! All of it!'."

Sandra is set to walk the red carpet with George for the UK premiere of Gravity at the London Film Festival in October.
