Sandra Bullock's Biography
Nowadays Sandra Annette Bullock is one of the most famous and top-paying Hollywood actresses. She has played, among others, in such movies as "Miss Congeniality", "The Lake House", "Speed", "While You Were Sleeping".
Sandra was born to the family of John Bullock, military man and voice teacher, and Helga Meyer, a professional opera singer. She was born in Virginia.
Sandra's mother was a big authority to her. From her mother she learnt about arts, the beauty of the classical music, basics of etiquette. Helga even taught Sandra acting, as much as she could while her daughter still was a little girl. Actually, Helga wanted her daughter to become an opera singer, to continue the family traditions. From her early age, Sandra learnt singing, as well as piano and guitar play.
The family spent many years in Germany, where Sandra learnt ballet dances and went to the local opera school for children. As a child, the girl spoke German more often than English. After twelve years in Germany, the family moved back to the US.
Sandra enjoyed the creative atmosphere in her family, but she firmly decided to choose a profession which had nothing or very little to do with opera. After graduating from college, Sandra entered the East Carolina University to study drama. She was a good student, and when she got her diploma, she moved to New York in order to become an actress. First she had to do some small jobs, like bartender and waitress, while searching for her first role.
First she played some secondary characters in musicals. In 1987 she was lucky enough to get her first serious role in the movie "Hangmen". Her participation in the TV series "Working Girl" in 1990 was a true success.
The role of Lenina Huxley in "Demolition Man", where Sylvester Stallone played her partner, made her famous. However the biggest success of that time was probably "Speed", where she starred together with Keanu Reeves.
Bullock has received over thirty smaller and bigger awards. In 2009 she won an Oscar for the leading role in The Blind Side. But she also was nominated for the Golden Raspberry Award (some years earlier), so she has had her ups and downs.
Bullock has been married to Jesse James, but they divorced in 2010. After the divorce, she decided to adopt a child.
Nowadays you cannot see Sandra in new movies very often. Last year she played in "The Heat" and "Gravity". Otherwise she is very much into charity, and of course, she has her son, for whom she is most probably a very good mother. Recently she announced her intention to adopt another child. Time will tell if her dream will come true.
