The actress took the night off from mommy duty to attend Hollywood’s biggest night, the Academy Awards!

Sandra Bullock has had a whirlwind year — from winning her own Oscar for The Blind Side to going through a shocking and publicized divorce from ex-husband Jesse James. But she says all her fears disappeared when she became a mommy to her 1-year-old adopted son, Louis. “It’s made me a better person,” she told ABC’s Maria Menounos tonight at the Oscars. “I really appreciate where I am.” Aww!

But being a single mom isn’t easy, especially when you’re one of Hollywood’s most beloved actresses. “I just did my first day of work in a year and a half on Friday,” Sandra says. “I’m more patient and accommodating. All I want to do is get home to him.” It must be hard for Sandra to go back to work after taking almost a year off to raise little Louis. But we know she can balance it all!

Sandra is currently in NYC with Tom Hanks filming the new flick Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
