Sandra Bullock Tears Up Thanking Jay Leno For Always Being 'So Kind'

On this penultimate show on Wednesday night, 'Gravity' star Sandra Bullock (photosSandra Bullock photos) teared up as she thanked Jay Leno for always being "so kind" to her -- even when her films were less than stellar.

"When I saw you in Wrestling Ernest Hemingway, I looked at you when I looked at my wife for the first time," praised Leno of Bullock's role before she broke out in 1994's 'Speed'. "You just popped. And I said 'Oh my god, this person's going to be a big star.' And it all came true."

"Well, I'd like to say something," replied Bullock. "I'm going to start crying but you've always been so kind. 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 in your eyes."

"When I made crazy life decisions, you never questioned it. You were so welcoming. I just felt special, even when I was insecure. And I think everyone in this country has felt that everyday you've been there in their home"

"Well, you are special," Leno said as he kissed Bullock's hand.

Thursday night's broadcast will mark Leno's final turn as 'Tonight Show' host.
