Who would've thought when two brilliant minds meet each other, they would create a bond greater than blood and make plans for their loved one's future.
Didn't quite get that? Well, it's none other than Sandra Bullock and Viola Davis!
The two A-list actors, who first crossed paths a decade ago at the sets of 2011 drama Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (ELIC), today share such a beautiful bond that they don't hesitate to make plans for their children's future.
From friends to relatives
While talking with People, Bullock and Davis recently recalled their first meeting and how things changed past that. Davis revealed that both of them were filming for ELIC when she heard Bullock had welcomed her first child Louis, and she couldn't wait to hear about him.
Bullock added she distinctly remembers that time 'cuz that's when they secretly decided about Louis and Genesis's (Davis's daughter) arranged marriage! The Blind Side star explained that she was extremely happy with the agreement 'cuz usually in a marriage, it's the parents you have trouble with. But lucky for her, in her case, she would be more than happy to have the parents (aka Davis and her husband Julius Tennon) over.
The pair who'll next be seen in The Unforgivable still remembers their pact. At times, they even joke about it in front of their confused 11-year-olds. Giving an example of one such time, Bullock reveals that long back, once when she met Davis and Genesis at the Oscars, she was like, 'Oh my God, is this my son's wife? And both Louis and Genesis had a blank look on their faces!
Respect is what keeps it going...
Though Bullock and Davis are incredibly fond of each other, they don't get to spend much time together. However, the admiration and respect they have for each other never dies. Davis said she loves Bullock's authenticity. The fact that Bullock knows that a leader should nurture, protect, and set a tone of respect is what pulls people towards her. She even quipped that it's rare in the business nowadays.
Speaking about Davis, Bullock said that though it's not her job to inspire people, she does it every time. Whenever Bullock looks at Davis as a mother or just a woman, she feels she needs to step up her game. Every time it's like, "what would Viola Davis do in this situation?" and then she acts accordingly. The Bird Box star even quipped that there should be T-shirts with Davis's name on them; such is her aura!
Though we can't say about the T-shirts, one thing is for sure - we need to keep an eye on the actors' future plans! Who knows, one day we might see Louis and Genesis tying the knot (*wink)!
