Sandra Bullock biography

Sandra Annette Bullock was born in Washington, D.C., on July 26, 1964. This part of German and Alabamian was raised in Arlington.

As the eldest of two children, Sandra, her younger sister, and their mother used to travel to Europe often because her mother was a famous opera singer. Although Sandra constantly traveled, she made a habit of fitting in with every crowd she encountered.

During her years at "Arlington Washington-Lee High School," she was voted "most likely to brighten your day."

After graduating high school, Sandra attended East Carolina University, majoring in drama. Knowing that fame wasn't just given to one person, Sandra decided to jumpstart her career and, with her parents' approval, dropped out of college before earning her degree, packed up, and moved to New York.

Arriving in the Big Apple, Sandra took no time enrolling in intensive acting classes while holding a bartending job. She bartended for three years while working hard to achieve her dream of becoming an actress. Sandra went to every casting call and audition she could.

Finally, in 1998, a critic named John Simon gave Sandra's career a push in the right direction when he commented positively about her acting talent in a review of No Time Flat, an off-Broadway production Sandra was in.

With positivity on her side, Sandra became an agent. She began appearing on television, playing a beautiful bionic woman in the 1989 show titled Bionic Showdown: The Six-Million-Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman. After her stint on TV, she moved to LA and landed her first starring role in NBC's adaptation of Working Girl film. The show only lasted six episodes, during which Sandra had to resort to various odd jobs. She tried hard to boost her career and took a role in the 1992 film Love Potion No. 9. Although the film didn't reach incredible heights or land her other major film roles, it introduced her to Tate Donovan, her boyfriend for the next three years.

Slowly starting to enter the mainstream, Sandra managed to win herself five film roles in '93. However, her most notable film that year was Demolition Man, co-starring Sylvester Stallone, and Wesley Snipes. Although her role in the film was not epic, the film's producer, Joel Silver, introduced her to his friend and colleague, the director Jan De Bont.

De Bont cast Sandra as the female lead in the action film Speed ​​alongside Keanu Reeves. Even with opposition from colleagues, De Bont kept Bullock, which turned out to be a brilliant move. Speed ​​launched her popularity, leading her to star in films such as "While You Were Sleeping" and A Time To Kill, where she began to earn a seven-figure salary. Sandra had a minor setback in 1996 with Two If by Sea, a romantic comedy starring Denis Leary.

She also chose other bad roles in movies like In Love and War and A Farewell to Arms. But her worst career move was her starring role in the sequel to Speed; Speed ​​2: Cruise control. However, being the intelligent woman she is, Sandra started her own production company, Fortis Films.

Her first project was Hope Floats, and although it achieved only a minimal degree of success, her career came back full force when she starred opposite Nicole Kidman in Practical Magic. Sandra then lent her voice to The Prince of Egypt. And 1999 even started very well for Sandra with her role in the romantic comedy Forces of Nature, opposite Ben Affleck, and 28 Days, where she plays a recovering alcoholic.

Proving herself a master of physical comedy, she starred as Miss Congeniality in 2000 and was next seen in the 2002 thriller Murder By Numbers. She can also add Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, starring Ashley Judd, and the romantic comedy Two Weeks Notice to his lengthy filmography.
