Hollywood beauty Sandra Bullock waited until she turned 40 to start a family - because she was too "immature" to have a child beforehand.

The Miss Congeniality actress is now ready to settle down with biker boyfriend Jesse James and has hinted she hopes to have a baby in the near future.

She says, "I have accomplished a certain something in my life. I don't do anything by anyone else's schedule.

"It's so harmful to say to women that they need to have children by a certain time. I think most children are harmed because they are born to older children.

"I am the most immature person I know. No, that's not true - there's HUGH GRANT."
