Four years ago Sandra Bullock gave an inspiring and emotional performance in The Blind Side, portraying Leigh Anne Tuohy, the heroic woman who took in “Big Mike.” The film was based on a true story and now Big Mike, really Michael Oher, has grown up to become an offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens. He played in last night's Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers, which the Ravens won 34-31.
Prior to the game, Bullock planned to attend the game with the Tuohy family in support of the football player, according to Entertainment Tonight .
The real Leigh Ann Tuohy confirmed the news, “Yes, [Bullock] will be donning her 74 jersey on Sunday and cheering for the Ravens.”
Entertainment Wise added that Tuohy called Bullock “a great advocate of doing the right thing. She’s a big giver. She follows Michael’s career every step of the way.”
According to Vulture, Oher was drafted by the Ravens in 2009, the same year that the film was released.
The film made $250 million and earned Bullock an Oscar for Best Actress.
