Born in 1964, Sandra Bullock, at age 56 is more than just an Academy Award winning actress with millions of adoring fans. She is also a respected producer. She is not only focused on her career but also continues to be an outstanding role model for others.
In 2010, she donated a million dollars towards the continuing efforts to rebuild in Haiti after that country suffered a devastating earthquake. She was also included in Time’s the hundred most influential people. In addition to her career successes and humanitarian efforts, she is quite the entrepreneur.
Along with her own production company, Sandra also owns a popular restaurant in Austin, Texas as well as a bakery and florist shop.
Sandra is believable. She is a beautiful woman with just the right number of flaws that audiences identify with her easily. Though she has taken forays into both adventure/action and drama, her strong suite remains romantic comedy.
Still, her 2010 Academy Award for her role as a “middle-aged” mom in “The Blind Side” proves that Sandra can handle doing parts other than a romantic lead. In 2015, she was chosen as people’s most beautiful woman.
Some of the same things that make Sandra believable are the ones that cost her roles. Her signature snorting laugh, disregard for current fashions and the fact that she is as outspoken on the set as some of her characters has earned her the label of being a tough act.
In addition to her “at-long-last” Oscar win for “the Blind Side”, Bullock has also won a Golden Globe and a Screen Actor’s Guild Award. She has had numerous nominations in almost all major award categories. She was the highest paid actress in 2010 and 2014.
