Sandra Bullock has credited her strict mom for pushing her into playing sports when she was younger, as that is what has given her a toned body.
The Speed star’s mother forced her to undertake gruelling gymnastics and dance classes.
And Bullock has admitted that she hated it at the time.
However, now, she is glad that her mother made her so active as a teenager, because it has given her a lifelong love of fitness.
"You know what, I have to say, Helga Bullock - a very strict German woman - forced me in to gymnastics and dance at a young age. I hated her for it,” the Daily Star quoted Bullock as saying.
She added: “I then continued to other athletics and now I'm thankful for what she started, it's something that I can keep doing... I think it ebbs and flows, I gain 20 pounds, I lose 20 pounds... I''m lucky that my mother instilled something to me, it's kind of still sticking."
