Sandra Bullock: How Did She Get Her Start in Hollywood?
When an actor achieves stardom in Hollywood, admirers are compelled to inquire about his or her path to success. Sandra Bullock, a successful actress, has undoubtedly been the target of such suspicion. After all, she’s an Oscar-winning A-list performer and one of Hollywood’s most formidable female stars. But how did Bullock make it from her humble beginnings to the pinnacle of the entertainment world?
Sandra Bullock was one of Hollywood’s highest-paid female actors.
Bullock’s breakthrough performance in 1994’s Speed, with Keanu Reeves, came in the 1990s. It didn’t take long for her to start starring in her own films. The blockbuster romantic comedy While You Were Sleeping was her first big star vehicle the following year. Bullock’s big-screen career had some great hits (Miss Congeniality, Two Weeks Notice) and several notable failures during the next decade or so (Speed 2: Cruise Control).
Bullock became one of the highest-paid ladies on the big screen about the same period. According to Insider, she earned the largest paycheck of her career for the 2013 film Gravity, getting $20 million upfront and at least $70 million overall. Bullock also starred alongside Reeves in The Lake House, earned an Academy Award for The Blind Side, and had her biggest hit as a voice actress in the $1 billion-grossing Minions in 2015.
