Sandra Bullock is a German-American actress. She took acting classes with Sanford Meisner in New York and performed in a few off-Broadway plays. Early in her career, Bullock was the indie film darling. Her star-making role was that of Annie Porter from the 1994 action film Speed. Since then, she has starred in a number of box office hit romantic comedies and dramas, growing to hold the 2012 Guinness World Record for highest-paid actress.
She has won multiple Golden Globe awards, won an Oscar award for “Best Actress” and a Razzie award for “Worst Actress” in the same year. She is only the second actress to accept a Razzie award in the thirty-year history of this particular awards ceremony.
In accepting her Academy award for The Blind Side, she thanked…
What this film was about for me, which are the moms that take care of the babies and the children, no matter where they come from. Those moms and parents never get thanked. I, in particular, fail to thank one.”
She went on to thank her deceased mother for…
Reminding her daughters that there’s no race, to religion, no class system, no colour—nothing, no sexual orientation that makes us better than anyone else. We are all deserving of love.”
On a more light-hearted note, Bullock also mentioned Meryl Streep in her speech as “the best kisser”, alluding to a skit that she and the famous Streep had played for the 2010 Golden Globes Critics Choice Awards. The two acted out a vocal feud over the Best Actress nomination and award, which ended with Bullock striding towards Streep and pulling her face in for a quick but decisive mouth-to-mouth snog. The two embraced… “Meryl is a good kisser,” Bullock stated.
In addition to acting, Sandra Bullock is an activist for environmentalism and relief efforts for natural disasters.
