Biography for Sandra Bullock

Sandra Annette Bullock (born Jul. 26, 1964 (55 years ago)) is an American actress who came to fame in the 1990s, after roles in successful movies such as Speed and While You Were Sleeping. She has since established her career as a well-known leading Hollywood actress, with movies such as Miss Congeniality and 2005's Crash, which received critical acclaim. In 2007 (12 years ago) she was ranked as the 14th richest female celebrity with an estimated fortune of $85 million.

Early years

Bullock was born in Arlington County, Virginia, the daughter of Helga D. Meyer, a German opera singer and part-time vocal coach, and John W. Bullock, a voice coach and executive from Alabama. Bullock's maternal grandfather was a rocket scientist from Nuremberg, Germany. On her father's side, she is descended from a prominent family in early Alabama history for whom Bullock County is named. Bullock lived in Nuremberg until age twelve, where she sang in the opera's children's choir at the Staatstheater Nürnberg. She frequently traveled with her mother on her opera tours, and lived in Germany and other parts of Europe for much of her childhood. She is fluent in German and holds German citizenship via her late mother's nationality. Bullock studied ballet and vocal arts as a child, taking small parts in her mother's opera productions.

Bullock attended Washington-Lee High School where she was a cheerleader, participated in high school theater productions and dated a football player. She graduated in 1982 (37 years ago) and enrolled in East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. She left East Carolina during her senior year (Spring 1986 (33 years ago)), only three credits short of graduating, to pursue an acting career. She moved to Manhattan to pursue auditions and supported herself with a variety of odd jobs (bartender, cocktail waitress, coat checker).

Bullock later completed her coursework and was awarded a bachelor's degree from East Carolina University.

Career

While in New York, Bullock took acting classes at the Neighborhood Playhouse. She appeared in several student movies and later landed a role in an Off-Broadway play No Time Flat. Director Alan J. Levi was impressed by Bullock's performance and offered her a part in the made-for-TV movie Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman (1989, 30 years ago). After filming the TV movie, Bullock stayed in Los Angeles and was cast in a series of small roles in several independent movies as well as in the lead role of the short-lived NBC TV version of the movie Working Girl (1990, 29 years ago). She later appeared in several movies such as Love Potion No. 9 (1992, 27 years ago), The Thing Called Love (1993, 26 years ago) and Fire on the Amazon (in which she agreed to appear topless if the camera did not show that much; she covered herself with duct tape, which apparently was somewhat painful to remove).

One of Bullock's first notable movie appearances was in the science-fiction/action movie Demolition Man (1993, 26 years ago), which starred Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes. This role then led to her break-through performance in Speed the following year. She became a high-level movie star in the late 1990s, carrying a string of successes, including While You Were Sleeping (replacing actress Demi Moore, who was originally scheduled to star), and Miss Congeniality. Bullock received $11 million dollars for Speed 2: Cruise Control and $17.5 million dollars for Miss Congeniality 2: Armed & Fabulous.


Bullock was selected as one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in the World in 1996 (23 years ago) and 1999 (20 years ago), and was also ranked #58 in Empire magazine's Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time list. She was presented with the 2002 (17 years ago) Raúl Juliá Award for Excellence for her efforts, as the executive producer of the sitcom The George Lopez Show, in helping expand career openings for Hispanic talent in the media and entertainment industry. She also made several appearances on the show as Accident Amy, an accident-prone employee at the factory Lopez's character manages. In 2002 (17 years ago), she starred opposite Hugh Grant in the global hit Two Weeks Notice.

In 2005 (14 years ago), Bullock had a supporting role in the movie Crash. She received positive reviews for her performance, with some critics suggesting that it was the best performance of her career. Bullock later appeared in The Lake House, a romantic drama also starring her Speed co-star, Keanu Reeves; it was released on Jun. 16, 2006 (13 years ago). Because their movie characters are separated throughout the movie (due to the plot revolving around time travel), Bullock and Reeves were only on set together for two weeks during filming. The same year, Bullock appeared in the Infamous, playing author Harper Lee friend to eccentric writer Truman Capote. Bullock also starred in Premonition with Julian McMahon (6 walls), which was released in Mar. 2007 (12 years ago).

Personal life

Bullock was once engaged to actor Tate Donovan whom she met while filming Love Potion No. 9. Their relationship lasted four years. She previously dated football player Troy Aikman, Austin musician Bob Schneider (for two years) and actors Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Gosling.

Bullock married motorcycle builder and Monster Garage host Jesse James on Jul. 16, 2005 (14 years ago). They met when Bullock arranged for her ten-year-old godson to meet James as a Christmas present. On her husband and her marriage, Bullock has commented:

So basically through a courtship of letters... I learned about a human being. It was not something I wanted, needed, or looked for, but because he was a stronger person than I was, spiritually and on a tolerance level, I was lucky enough that he educated me... I always thought of marriage as a death sentence, that there'd be a ball and chain, and you'd be told, "You need to stop doing these things and become a good little wife." Now people say "Oh my God you're going to have sex with one person the rest of your life!" I hope I have sex with him for the rest of my life - because I like it!
On dec. 20, 2000 (19 years ago), Bullock survived the crash of a chartered business jet at Jackson Hole Airport. The aircraft hit a snowbank instead of the runway, resulting in both the nose gear and nose cone being ripped off, the right wing partially separated from the aircraft and the left wing bent back.

Bullock has been a public supporter of the American Red Cross, twice donating $1 million, first to its Liberty Disaster Relief Fund and four years later in response to the 2004 (15 years ago) Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunamis.

In Oct. 2004 (15 years ago), Bullock won a multimillion dollar judgment against Benny Daneshjou, the builder of her Lake Austin Texas home; the jury ruled the house was uninhabitable. It has since been torn down and rebuilt. Bullock also owns a house on Tybee Island, which is a few miles from Savannah, Georgia.

On Apr. 22, 2007 (12 years ago), a woman was lying outside James and Bullock's Southern California home in Orange County. When James confronted the woman, she ran inside her 2004 (15 years ago) silver Mercedes and tried to run him over. The woman is said to be an obsessed fan of Sandra Bullock. The woman, Marcia Diana Valentine, was arrested on investigation of assault with a deadly weapon. In May, Bullock won a three-year restraining order against the woman. Valentine pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault and stalking.

On Apr. 18, 2008 (11 years ago), while Bullock was in Massachusetts shooting the movie The Proposal, she and her husband were in an SUV that was hit head on by a drunken driver. There were no injuries.

In Jan. 2009 (10 years ago), she and husband Jesse James were awarded temporary full-time custody of his daughter, Sunny, following her mother's (Janine Lindemulder) sentencing to six months in prison, for income tax evasion.
