Sandra Bullock Tears Up on 'The Tonight Show' & Thanks Jay Leno For Not Slamming Her Worst Movies

During The Tonight Show's penultimate show, Jay Leno got quite the sincere sendoff from Sandra Bullock. The two have been friends for a long time, and on Wednesday, Sandra Bullock teared up and told Jay Leno just how much she appreciated his friendship and care after he complimented her career, and it was just a sweet gushfest.

When I saw you in Wrestling Ernest Hemingway, I looked at you the same way I looked at my wife for the first time, Leno says. You just popped, and I thought, 'This person has got to be a big star.' And it all came true.

The Oscar-winning and nominated actress for Gravity, who's usually quick with a joke, seemed to have something in her eye when she returned his sentiments.

I'd like to say something, before I start crying. You've always been so kind. That's saying a lot in this business, because we like to be mean, Bullock says. There's not been one time you haven't treated me like I had something to offer — even when the film was horrible and you knew it, you never let me see it in your eyes.

Dawwww, Sandy. Horrible films? I wouldn't say that Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous was horrible, but just maybe not your best.

When I made crazy life decisions, you never questioned it. You were so welcoming. And every single person on your crew was like that, consistently. I just felt special, even when I was insecure, Bullock says. Everyone, I think, in this room, in this country, has felt that everyday that you've been in their home and Im so glad I got to be a part of it.

I think the crazy life decision here is the whole Jesse James thing, but I digress. Leno went on to say that Bullock was truly special, and joked that he can now talk about Speed 2 and could finally ask rude questions because of his retirement. Okurrrrr.

His final night hosting The Tonight Show is tonight, with guests Billy Crystal and Garth Brooks.
