Sandra Bullock Suffers Severe PTSD Following Terrifying Home Invasion in 2014

The 'Bird Box' star explains that she isn't the same after the traumatizing break-in, saying, 'When I got out of it, I realized I have surrounded myself often with unsafe people.'

AceShowbiz - Sandra Bullock got candid about one of the most terrifying moment in her life. The "Ocean's 8" actress stopped by "Red Table Talk" in the Wednesday, December 1 episode, in which she recalled a home invasion that occurred back in 2014.

"My house was broken into while I was in it," Sandra told hosts Willow Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris. "I'm in the closet going, 'This doesn't end well.' I'm in the closet, [which is] not gonna help."

Thankfully, the Oscar winner's son wasn't at home that night. "It was the one night that Louis wasn't with me," the "Bird Box" actress said of her son, whom she adopted in 2010 when he was 3½ months old. "It was the one night that our nanny goes, 'Let me just take him to my apartment which is up the street because you're going to be out late.' "

She added, "Had he been home, I would've run to the closet, which is now my official closet but that was his bedroom, and it would have changed our destiny forever. So why was he not home on that one night? And the violation of that. I wasn't the same after that. I was unraveling."

"The Proposal" star claimed she "wasn't the same" after the traumatizing break-in. "When I got out of it, I realized I have surrounded myself often with unsafe people and situations and put myself there - I have no one else to blame but myself - because that was the most familiar feeling I had," she explained.

The 57-year-old beauty also revealed that she had EMDR session which she called the "most healing." She continued, "In that EMDR journey, I had to take ownership of everything that I bought into my world because it felt comfortable and realized it no longer had a place. Vanity got me out of it. I was looking at my body, and I said, 'It's going to break.' It was not responding well to what was happening."
