Being one of the most high-paid Hollywood actresses she actually worked hard to get this status. Sandra Annette Bullock was born on July 26, 1964, in Arlington County, Virginia. With her mother being an opera singer and a father being a voice coach Sandra was enrolled at ballet school and attended choir classes since her childhood. Bullock was dreaming to become a professional actress, so she entered East Carolina University to study acting. But she dropped it and left for New York City to pursue her future acting career. Bullock appeared in such films like Fire on the Amazon, portraying her bare breasts while having sex; Love Potion No. 9, where she met her for-the- next-three-years boyfriend Tate Donovan, and Demolition Man opposite Sylvester Stallone. Due to success in the last film she was cast for blockbuster Speed with a co-star Keanu Reeves. Bullock rushed into Hollywood show business world by her roles in While You Were Sleeping, Practical Magic and 28 Days. Though not all of her movies was successful (like Speed II for instance) but the films she starred in became real hits: comedy Miss Congeniality, crime Murder by Numbers, comedy and drama The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Her recent films are Infamous, where she co-starred Gwenyth Paltrow and Harper Lee, and a thriller Premonition where she was acting alongside Julian McMahon, a son of Australian Prime Minister. Being attractive Bullock had a lot of followers but she gave her heart Jesse James, a host of a TV show Monster Garage. Sandra is considered to be one of the richest women in entertainment (she took the 14th place). Having a net wealth of $85 million, she is one of the most known American donators.
