Why Sandra Bullock Cried During Jay Leno Tribute

Seth Meyers isn't the only one getting a major send-off in NBC's big late-night shuffle. While it's hard to beat a farewell from Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg, and Stefon, Jay Leno scored a touching adieu from none other than Oscar darling, Sandra Bullock. Cue the waterworks!
"When I saw you in Wrestling Ernest Hemingway, I looked at you like the first time I looked at my wife," Leno told the actress during his second-to-last show last night. "You just popped and I went, 'Oh my god, this person's gotta be a big star.'" That touch of charm was all Bullock needed to start tearing up.
"You've always been so kind," she told Leno. "That's saying a lot in this business, because we like to be mean. There's not been one time you haven't treated me like I had something to offer — even when the film was awful and you knew it, you never let me see it. When I made crazy life decisions, you never questioned it. You were so welcoming. I just felt special, even when I was insecure."
Awww. Pass the Kleenex! We can't think of a more touching tribute for The Tonight Show host — even if it did totally screw up our own mascara. (Digital Spy)
