SANDRA BULLOCK is one of many fans of the smash hit movie Black Panther particularly for the message it provides for her two children.

The actress met the cast at the Academy Awards on Sunday (Mar 4), and said she cried upon meeting them. “I started to cry backstage when I was telling [the cast] how much the film meant to me as a woman, but how much it meant to me as a mother."

Bullock is the mother of two adoptive black children - Louis Bardo Bullock and Laila Bullock - and she told Access Hollywood that the Marvel film really struck a deep chord with her.

“I’m so grateful to Marvel because about five years ago, my son asked me if there were any brown Legos,” the actress explained. “And I said, ‘Yes, there are,’ and I got a Sharpie and I turned Spider-Man brown, I turned the Legos brown, and I don’t have to turn them brown anymore.”

Her son and daughter are still a little too young to see Black Panther, but she said her daughter, Laila, loves wearing the superhero character mask.

“I bought her swag before it even came [out],” Bullock said. “She runs around in the Black Panther mask. Which is scary when she comes out of the dark.”
