Sandra Bullock: I'm Giving Baby Louis a "Ridiculous" Christmas

Sandra Bullock is one funny mama. The Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close star told Access Hollywood that 2-year-old son Louis isn't getting anything for Christmas. He "gets nothing. Not a thing."

The Academy Award winning single mother explained her holiday giving philosophy: "The less you give, the less they'll expect," the 47-year-old quipped. "And that way, if I give him nothing, he won't remember and he won't expect it next year and it's cheaper."

She kids. In fact, Bullock, 47, plans to spoil her little Louis. According to Us Weekly, Bullock has purchased Louis an Andy Warhol painting (for $14,000) and two paintings by artist Patrick Roberts -- in addition to the "life-size lion" and other kiddie toys.

"It's gonna be a little ridiculous," she said, referring to Louis' gifts under the tree. "I want the photo ops to be really great because he's not going to remember it, but he'll remember it by the photos."

But the Christmas bounty comes with an ulterior motive for Bullock's future motherhood plans.

"When he's 16 and says, 'I hate you — you're a horrible mother,' I'll go, 'Do you see this Christmas? Do you see that I got you that life-size lion? Shut up! Get in your room and do your homework. I was a good mother then," she adds. "And that’s what I'm going to use. That's my ammunition."
