Bullock was born on July 26, 1964 to Helga and
John Bullock in Arlington, Virginia. As a child
she would travel with her parents to Germany
where her mother was a renowned Opera singer and
her father a voice coach. She attended Washington
Lee High School, the same high school Warren
Beatty and Shirley Maclaine attended.
In order to fit in with
the other students in her school, Sandra became a
cheerleader and was known even then for her
fantastic sense of humor. She also had a
tremendous crush on shock jock, Howard Stern back
when he broadcasted out of Washington D.C.
After graduatig high
school, Sandra attended East North Carolina
Unifversity, but before graduating chucked it all
and moved to New York City to persue an acting
Sandra made many
movies and television series that never quite
made it. In 1993 she co-starred in Demoltion
Man with Sylvestor Stallone and Wesley
Snipes, but it wasn't until Sandra found herself
behind the wheel of a bus that couldn't go below
50 or it would explode, that Sandra's career
really took off.
Sandra had her choice of chum roles and that same
summer had hit after hit with the coma-romantic
comedy While You Were Sleeping and the
internet thriller The Net.
Since 1994 Sandra has
made many movies and had her heart broken many
times. She now likes to keep her private life
private, but the whole world knew Sandra was
hurting when her mother passed away from cancer
in April 2000 while she was filming Miss
Congeniality. While she might have been in
emotional pain during the films creation, Sandra
still pulled off one of the best performances of
her career and was even nominated for a Golden
Globe for Best Actress In A Comedy.
When she isn't working,
Sandra spends time at her Texas home and as much
time possible with her younger sister Gesine and
her father, who is now her manager.
