Sandra Bullock is an Academy Award winning Canadian actress. She has starred in a lot of hit films since the 90’s. She is regarded as one of the best actress in the world. She is one of the most commercially and critically successful actresses ever.
Sandra Annette Bullock was born in a Virginia suburb of Washington, DC, to a German opera singer and voice teacher at 3:15 AM on 26 July 1964. Her maternal grandfather was a rocket scientist from Nuremberg, Germany.
Sandra Bullock rose to fame in the 1990s after roles in successful films such as Demolition Man, Speed, The Net, Hope Floats, A Time to Kill, and While You Were Sleeping. Sandra was chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history. Her favorite time of the day is dusk.
Sandra Bullock has been around for a long time. Her first major hit was Demolition Man in 1993. The film was a hit because of action legends Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes. But her breakthrough movie Speed came a year later. She starred alongside Keanu Reeves. Since then, she has starred in a lot of successful films during late 90’s and the new millennia. In 2000, she starred in Miss Congeniality which caged in over $200 million. She almost won the Miss USA pageant in that film. She starred in the Academy Award winning film Crash in 2004. In 2006, she starred for the second time with Keanu Reeves in the romantic drama The Lake House. 2009 was the most successful year in Sandra Bullock’s Career. She starred in two in The Proposal and The Blind Side. The Proposal was a great romantic comedy which earned over $300 million but it was nothing compared to The Blind Side. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress for portraying Leigh Ann Tuohy in The Blind Side. In 2013, she starred in Gravity and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress but lost to Cate Blanchett. Gravity is her most commercially successful film with $716 million at the box office. She also starred alongside Mellissa McCarthy in the comedy The Heat last year.
There is a special youthfulness in most of her characters as if she is just a teenager inside. It’s a lot like with Cameroon Diaz, although they are over 40 but it feels like they are not. She is one of the highest paid actresses and is certainly amongst the most beautiful women in the world.
