Sandra Bullock's son saved her Ocean's 8 role

Sandra Bullock's son convinced her to take her role on 'Ocean's 8'.

The 53-year-old actress has admitted that she almost turned down the opportunity to star in the all-female reboot of the 'Ocean's' franchise because the filming dates would mean taking her out of school.

She said: "This almost didn't happen for me because it was supposed to shoot during the summer, and then when Cate wasn't available, they said, 'Are you willing to shift it to fall in New York?' And I went, 'I gotta take the kids out of school.'"

Sandra didn't want to disrupt her brood's schedules, but was eventually convinced by her son Louis to head to New York to "look at a school", which led the star to accept the offer and move her children across the country.
