Sandra Bullock is one of Hollywood’s most recognizable, bankable, and successful actresses. The talented star is also one of the hardest working women in the industry today and she has the decades worth of work to prove it. She kicked off her career with the 1987 film, Hangmen before subsequently appearing in the television film – Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman, wherein she portrayed the character of Kate Mason. Owing to her expertise in the acting world, she went ahead to win the role of Tess McGill in the NBC sitcom, Working Girl. Unfortunately, the series was canceled after eight episodes due to low ratings.
Bullock’s big breakthrough did not come until 1993 when she appeared in the film Demolition Man opposite screen stars Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes. After that, she appeared in a string of other successful movies, including – Speed, Practical Magic, Hope Floats, While You Were Sleeping, A Time To Kill and The Net, solidifying her place as one of Hollywood’s leading ladies. By the time the 2000s rolled around, Sandra was already a household name. The Hangmen actress proceeded to appear in several more blockbusters, including Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality, The Proposal, The Heat, Crash, Minions, Gravity, Blind Side (for which she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Drama and the Academy Award for Best Actress), and Minions which made over $1 billion at the box office.
Sandra Bullock’s Past And Present Relationships
Sandra Bullock has been in a slew of high-profile relationships since she made her way to the top in the entertainment industry. The actress previously dated the former professional football star, Troy Kenneth Aikman. The athlete spent his football career with Dallas Cowboys from the year 1989 to 2000. It is not known exactly when the Henryetta High School and UCLA graduate began his affair with Bullock and the particular year they called it quits. Aikman, who currently works at Fox network as a TV sportscaster is now married to Catherine Mooty, an elite fashion retailer. He shares two daughters with his first wife, Rhonda Worthey, a former publicist for Dallas Cowboys.
Sandra also spent part of her dating life with the Uvalde, Texas-born producer and actor, Matthew McConaughey. The Longview High School alum got connected to the actress after she parted ways with Aikman. The two are believed to have had a good time together before their relationship sadly hit rock bottom. Like her previous relationship, there’s no record detailing how long she spent with the actor. Currently, McConaughey is married to a Brazillian-American designer and model called Camila Alves. They met in 2006, got engaged in 2011, and eventually tied the knot in Austin, Texas, in the year 2012. Matthew and Alves are parents to two lovely boys and a girl.
Bullock has also been linked to the hunky La La Land actor, Ryan Gosling. The powerhouse couple, according to reports, got attracted to each other after meeting for the first time in 2002 while filming the movie, Murder by Numbers. While Gosling was 22 at the time, the actress was 38 but their huge age gap did not deter them from enjoying the best moments of their lives together for almost one year. Sadly, the Murder by Number co-stars could not keep up. The La La Land actor has since moved on from Bullock. Since 2011, he’s been in a romantic relationship with Hollywood star and businesswoman Eva Mendes and they have two daughters together. Apart from Sandra Bullock and Mendes, other women who danced their way into Gosling’s heart include Olivia Wilde, Rachel McAdams, Kat Dennings, and Blake Lively.
Next on the list of men the actress has had relationships with is the New Jersey multi-hyphenate, Tate Donovan. The pair met while filming the American romantic film, Love Potion No 9 together in the early ’90s. The two spent only three years together before the relationship fell apart. Till now, none of them has commented on the reason for their separation. Currently, the voice actor is not married to any woman following a failed marriage to Corinne Kingsbury, a writer. The two tied the knot in the year 2005 on a Malibu, California beach and divorced three years later.
Many years after investing her time in several relationships, Sandra found love again, this time in the arms of the respected American television personality, Jesse James. The couple did not only find themselves irresistible but also suitable for marriage. Bullock and James exchanged their marital vows on the 16th day of July 2005 in the presence of their families and loved ones. Sadly, they ended their marital relationship in 2010 after several attempts to save their marriage following claims by several women that they had affairs with the TV star. Jesse, a native of Long Beach, California, has had four weddings in his lifetime – two before Bullock’s arrival into his life and the fourth to professional drag racer Alexis DeJoria. The duo tied the knot on March 24, 2013.
Currently, the actress is an item with the celebrated photographer, Bryan Randall. They’ve been together since 2015 and have no plans of leaving each other’s side, even though Sandra and her beau are yet to announce their wedding plans. Randall is well-known in the city of Los Angeles for his stunning travel photography and children’s portraits.
Did She Have Kids From Any Of Her Relationships?
No, the actress’s relationships with Troy Aikman, Ryan Gosling, Matthew McConaughey, and Tate Donovan, did not produce any kid. However, she played a crucial role in winning custody of her ex-husband’s five-year-old daughter from his second wife Janine Lindemulder, a former adult film actress. James and Bullock won the lengthy legal battle in the year 2009, four years after their marriage.
Bullock has two children of her own – a son she adopted as a single parent in 2010 and an adopted daughter as well. She announced the adoption of the latter in the year 2015. The actress and her ex-husband had begun the adopting process of her son prior to their divorce but things didn’t work out as planned due to James’ infidelity scandal.
Apart from helping the actress raise her two kids, Randall has been a comforting presence to her and he also wants to have more kids with the actress. Bryan, on his own part, is a father of one. He has a grown daughter from one of his previous relationships.
