After she discovered (along with the rest of the world) her husband had been cheating on her, Sandra Bullock thought she’d never return to acting

Despite putting up a strong front for the press, Sandra Bullock now reveals what was really going on with her emotionally when she discovered her now ex-husband, Jesse James, had been unfaithful for much of their five year marriage.

“I was perfectly content to be permanently broken,” Sandra, 47, told the Associated Press about her reaction to the scandal, adding that she thought she’d be through with acting altogether. “I honestly didn’t think I was in a place where I wanted to work or wanted to step out of where I was.”

Even though she was determined to stay behind the screen, director Stephen Daldry convinced the Academy Award winner to come back to work on his film, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, which stars Tom Hanks and tells stories of peoples’ lives following 9/11.

“I wasn’t prepared,” Sandra said of the project. “But the opportunity was louder than my head.”

Extremely Loud hits theaters Jan. 20 and we cannot wait to see Sandra back on the big screen once again. Aren’t you glad she didn’t throw in the acting towel altogether?
