MAIN Arrow to Art & Culture Art & ... Arrow to Hollywood Pop Culture Arrow to Actresses Actresses Arrow to Sandra Bullock Sandra Bullock

Fun-loving, charismatic, (and voted in high school as the person "Most Likely to Brighten Your Day"), Sandra Bullock was born in Washington, D.C., on July 26, 1964.

With an opera singer mom, Bullock was exposed to show business at an early age and after briefly attending East Carolina University moved to New York to pursue an acting career. Theater was her first stop, with appearances on Off Broadway leading to television bit parts and small roles in film.

A minor breakthrough role in the early '90's saw her starring opposite Sylvestor Stallone in Demolition Man, leading up to her blockbuster role in the summer mega-hit Speed opposite Keanu Reeves that finally put Bullock's career on an upward projectory.

More success followed in the mid-90's with starring roles in the comedy While You Were Sleeping and in the drama, A Time to Kill, opposite Matthew McConaughey. The actress rounded out the decade with a rollercoaster ride of slumps and successes including forgettable roles in such movies as Two If By Sea in 1996 and in the disastrous Speed 2: Cruise Control a year later, but she later rebounded in the romantic comedy, Practical Magic alongside Nicole Kidman and in Miss Congeniality opposite Benjamin Bratt and Michael Caine.

Sandra Bullock's performance alongside Keanu Reeves in Speed (1994) helped put her on the Hollywood map,
followed by starring roles in Miss Congeniality (2000), and an Oscar-winning performance in The Blind Side (2009).


Bullock's performances include starring roles in the comedy Two Weeks Notice with Hugh Grant, and in Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Bullock later reprised her role as undercover beauty queen/FBI agent Gracie Hart in Miss Congeniality 2.

In 2006, Bullock played real life author Harper Lee ("To Kill a Mockingbird) and friend to writer Truman Capote in the film Infamous and also starred in the mystery thriller Premonition.

Although a string of Hollywood box office bombs has plagued the actress in the early 2000's (including comedies such as "The Proposal" and "All About Steve") Bullock later reemerged as one of America's leading actresses with such hits as The Blind Side for which she won best actress at the 2010 Oscar awards.

Ironically, Sandra Bullock was also nominated and WON a 2010 Razzie award that same year as Worst Actress for her role in All About Steve.

Her most recent star appearances have been in the film comedy The Heat opposite Melissa McCarthy, and in the Hollywood blockbuster Gravity alongside actor George Clooney in 2013.

Off-screen, the actress made headlines when in July 2005 she married reality TV star Jesse James at a ranch near Santa Barbara, California. The tabloids had a field day with a split between the couple and their contentious divorce five years later. Today, the single mom devotes most of her time at home caring for an adopted boy, Louis Bardo Bullock.
