Sandra Bullock has been a working actress in the entertainment industry since the late 1980s and has also worked as a producer during her impressive and long-lasting career. From suspenseful thrillers to romantic comedies, Bullock has starred in a wide variety of films and television shows. Some of her most notable films include “Miss Congeniality,” “Ocean’s Eight,” and “Bird Box.”
From a young age, Bullock showed a lot of promise as a smart and successful woman in the entertainment industry, as she pursued her passions both academically and during her personal time. Her impact on the industry has captured the attention of many fans and critics, and the star has earned herself quite a collection of awards and accolades. Along with this, Bullock also has a great selection of celebrity friends.
One of her most notable roles has been off-screen, as she is a mother of two children. She adopted her son Louis Bardo Bullock in 2010 and her daughter Laila Bullock in 2015. Being a mother to pubescent teenagers entails a lot of difficulties since this period for children is quite unpredictable.
Bullock, 58, raised her two children with her late partner Bryan Randall from 2015 until his untimely death in 2023. Among the difficulty that the actress-mother encountered in the past years was a fight between her daughter Laila and Channing Tatum’s daughter Everly, which took place in the school they both attended.
Tatum and Bullock worked on the film, “The Lost City,” which they revealed to have been instrumental in resolving their children’s conflict. Read on to learn more about how the two celebrity parents wittingly found a way to transform their daughters from enemies to besties.

Being a celebrity parent is no easy feat. Aside from juggling the insurmountable task of raising a child, the pressure of the cameras and the name one holds also adds to the difficulty of the entire process.
Tatum, who earned his major breakthrough in the film “Step Up,” is one of the biggest actors of the 2010s. He has also gained a massive following for his roles in “Dear John,” “21 Jump Street,” “Magic Mike,” and “The Vow.”
Bullock and Tatum teamed up for the first time in “The Lost City.” The two instantly connected as they were already familiar with each other because of their children.
In an interview with New York Times, Bullock revealed that there was “some PTSD attached” to the way they first met.
“We met through drama in the principal’s office at preschool. We were called in together because Everly and Laila were trying to alpha the other one out, and we prayed it was the other’s child that caused the damage,” she told the publication.
In a lie-detector test with Vanity Fair, Tatum described the year that he met Bullock as a particularly “very fun year,” referring to their unusual first meeting at the principal’s office.
"Our daughters got into a couple (of) scraps at school because they're both very, very, very strong-willed little girls," Tatum admitted.
Tatum is co-parenting Everly with his ex-wife Jenna Dewan, whom he met on the set of “Step Up.” The two married in 2009 but filed for divorce in 2018. But despite this, the two have remained civil with each other.
In a separate Vanity Fair interview, Tatum detailed that after his “terrifying divorce,” he focused on raising his daughter Everly.
“It was truly the best possible thing that I ever could have done. Because in the alone time that I have with just me and her, we’ve become best friends,” he admitted.
That is why during the ruckus with Bullock’s daughter Laila, Tatum did everything he could do to stop the two kids from fighting in school.
In the same New York Times interview, Bullock jokingly revealed that the two kids were the reason why she and Tatum both did “The Lost City.”
"That’s the reason we did this film, so they could have one long, Covid-safe play date," she said. "We even brought motorbikes down there. All we cared about is that Everly and Laila were just having the time of their lives."
That is why when Tatum was asked on the Variety Lie Detector Test if Everly and Laila “still have beef,” he had this to say:
"They love each other now, literally can't get enough of each other. They just want to hang out all the time."
Checking if he is not lying, the polygraph administrator confirmed that Tatum is actually telling the truth.
Evidently, raising alpha daughters is not something that could bring Tatum and Bullock down, and taking them on a playdate in the Dominican Republic, the country where the movie was shot, was actually an awesome idea to spend more time with their children and foster their friendship.
