Washington (ANI): Latino comedian George Lopez reveals that he considers actress Sandra Bullock to be his "guardian angel" after she saved him from an early death. The comedian took to the bottle in the mid-1990s when he was going through a bad phase of life, and at that time it was Bullock who gave him the opportunity to star in his own TV show named 'The George Lopez Show".
Bullock produced the U.S. sitcom, and the show turned his fortune around. Since then he considers Bullock his "guardian angel". "I grew up where you could visually see people wasting their lives and the pattern was kind of laid out for me for drinking your life away or not believing what you could do," Contactmusic quoted Lopez, as saying. "I hit a hard time in the mid-90s, where I was self abusing with alcohol and then Sandra Bullock turned that around.
"She was my guardian angel, definitely. I'd lived unhealthy and I just kind of accepted the way I felt and kind of adjusted to the fact that I was deteriorating from the time I was a kid at 18, through my 20s and 30s. "I didn't want to become what the people I grew up with had become, which was abusing the system, using excuses for not succeeding, living off the state and raising these kids who had no respect for anybody," he added.
