Sandra Bullock might not look like it, but she turned 50 today!
For the past 20 years, she has been charming her way into everyone’s hearts with her talent and poise. She has played a wide variety of roles, from quirky and funny, to serious and tough. Her first film was Hangmen, but she didn’t start her rise to fame until the 1990s with her roles in movies such as Speed, While You Were Sleeping, and The Net.
She has come a long way from then. She was the 14th richest woman in the entertainment industry in 2007, and by 2012, Guinness World Records had listed her as the highest-paid actress. In 2010, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in the film The Blind Side. She was also nominated for her role in Gravity, which has been her most successful film.
To celebrate and to honor Bullock’s milestone, we are counting down her top 10 movies, which wasn’t all that easy, since she has been part of so many great productions.
