Sandra Bullock is a big fan of "Black Panther" thanks to the film's positive impact on her kids.
"I started to cry backstage when I was telling (the 'Black Panther' cast) how much the film meant to me as a woman, but how much it meant to me as a mother," said the 53-year-old actress.
"I'm so grateful to Marvel because about five years ago, my son asked me if there were any brown Legos," she 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."
Even though her children are too young to actually see the action-packed movie, Bullock's daughter proudly owns plenty of "Black Panther" goodies.
"My daughter has all the swag. 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."
Bullock also predicted the film, which has held the No. 1 spot at the box office for three weeks in a row, will win a few Oscars of its own next awards season.
"It will be back here next year," she said. "There is no doubt in my mind."
