It’s hard to believe Sandra Bullock turns 50 on Saturday — and that she’s been acting since 1987!
Of course, it wasn’t until the mid-1990s that the actress’ career really took off, thanks to a star-making turn in Speed, followed by While You Were Sleeping.
In the 2000s, Miss Congeniality, Crash and The Proposal showed fans just how deftly Bullock could transition between comedy, drama, and back again.
And then, in 2009, came the Oscar.
“Did I really earn this, or did I just wear you all down?” Bullock asked when she accepted her Academy Award for The Blind Side.
Oh, she earned it all right, and her 2014 nomination for Gravity, too.
The Net, A Time To Kill, Hope Floats, 28 Days, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, The Heat — we could go on and on.
