George Lopez’s answer to why he’s been visiting with pal Sandra Bullock after news of Jesse James’s alleged infidelity broke? That’s what friends are for.

“She’s my fairy godmother,” Lopez said in an interview that aired on E!’s Daily 10 Thursday night. “She knows how much I care about her. And, you know, when times are tough, friends step up.”

Added the Lopez Tonight host: “She’s a beautiful person, and when she needs friends, of course I’m going to be there.” The two have been close since 2000, when Bullock discovered Lopez, who was then a stand-up comic. Two years later, she executive produced his hit television show, George Lopez.
