Over the years, a lot (a lot) of famous people have hated on Jay Leno. Sandra Bullock, however, has always been a fan – and she told the Tonight Show staple as much Wednesday, during Leno’s penultimate episode as host.
“You’ve always been so kind,” the Oscar winner told the comedian as tears began to well up. “You were always so welcoming and every single person on your crew was that way consistently, and I just felt special even when I felt very insecure. And everyone, I think, in this room and in this country, has felt that every day that you’ve been in their homes. I’m so grateful that I got to be a part of this.”
Watch the moment in our highlight video below – and keep a box of tissues handy, just in case.
Leno’s very last Tonight airs… tonight, at 11:35 p.m. ET.
