Sandra Bullock

Sandra Annette Bullock (born July 26, 1964 in Arlington, Virginia) is an American film actress.

Sandra majored in drama at East Carolina University. She dropped out to pursue acting in New York City, but found it difficult to establish herself. She moved to Los Angeles, California and landed a series of small roles in several independent films and, eventually, she got the lead role in the TV version of the movie Working Girl.

Bullock's first notable movie appearance was in Demolition Man in 1993 and also in "Fire on the Amazon" in a fantastically sweaty and erotic performance, which led to her breakthrough performance in Speed the following year. She became a bona fide star in the mid–late 90s, carrying a string of successes on the strength of her name alone. She also runs her own production company, Fortis Films.

Biography

Bullock was born to the late German-born opera singer Helga Meyer, and American voice teacher John Bullock. She started singing as a child in Germany, where she also studied ballet and performed small parts in her Mother's operas. She lived 12 years in Frth, Germany. Bullock attended Washington-Lee High School where she was a cheerleader and was voted "Most Likely to Brighten up Your Day" by her class.

Bullock is single and has no children. She is dating motorcycle builder and Monster Garage host Jesse James and has also dated Troy Aikman, Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Gosling. She was engaged to actor Tate Donovan.

In October 2004, she won a multi-million-dollar judgment in a lawsuit against Benny Daneshjou, the builder of her Lake Austin, Texas mansion, a home in which she has never lived, claiming it is uninhabitable. The builder denies any wrongdoing and is appealing the verdict.

Bullock publicly donated $1 million twice to the American Red Cross, first to its Liberty Disaster Relief Fund and again over four years later, in response to the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunamis.

Filmography

Bullock will be starring with co-star Keanu Reeves in a new movie (2006) entitled "Il Mare," which is a remake of a Korean movie called "Shi wol ae."
