Miss Congeniality, Sandra Bullock, was born into a musical family and took dance and vocal classes as a child. Miss Bullock, who is fluent in German, holds a bachelor’s degree from East Carolina University. She actively pursued acting in New York City, and landed roles independent student films as well as a play called No Time Flat. This is where a director noticed Sandra and offered her a role in the made for TV movie, Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman. Her first major film was Demolition Man, where she played Lieutenant Lenina Huxley opposite stars Wesley Snipes and Sylvester Stallone.

The film won an award for being such a huge blockbuster that year. The Oscar award-winning movie Speed earned Sandra Bullock critical acclaim as well as many awards. She was also nominated for a Golden Globe for her portrayal of the character Lucy in While You Were Sleeping. Miss Bullock seemed to become a full- fledged movie star in the 90’s and filled her shelves with awards from films including A Time to Kill, Hope Floats, Crash, Two Weeks Notice, The Lake House, Premonition, and, of course, Miss Congeniality.

 She has been named one of People’s 50 Most Beautiful People on two separate occasions. She is the executive producer of the sitcom George Lopez and somehow finds the time to run her production company, Fortis Films. It’s a family affair, with her sister heading the company as president and her father running it as CEO. She also owns Bess, a restaurant in Austin, Texas! Despite all her endeavors, Bullock is also a wife to Jesse James and mother to his daughter from a previous marriage. Empire Magazine called Sandra Bullock one of “The Top Movie Stars of All Time”.

Bullock has done a cameo as Accident Amy in George Lopez, and, unfortunately, has been involved in some real life accidents as well. In early 2000, the charter plane Bullock was traveling on crashed into a snowbank. The dream home she built in 2004 was deemed uninhabitable and she was forced to leave the home due to shoddy work and fear for personal safety. She was also the object of obsession and was stalked not one but TWO different people, one of which who repeatedly tried to run over Bullock’s husband James.  Bullock has recently been quoted bad mouthing romantic comedies, which after starring in Miss Congeniality, Two Weeks Notice, and her newest film The Proposal, she probably shouldn’t be doing. We love you Sandy, but don’t bite the hand that feeds you!
