After laying low for the better part of 2010, Sandra Bullock gave her first televised, sit-down interview on the "Today" show this morning.
The philanthropist and new mom to adopted son Louis, who Bullock calls a “little Cajun cookie,” spoke with Matt Lauer in New Orleans about life after her split with Jesse James.
However, the motorcycle mogul’s name wasn’t mentioned during Lauer’s time with Bullock. Instead, the “Today” host focused on the new man in Bullock’s life: her son.
She may not have hit the jackpot in her love life, but Sandra Bullock’s finances this past year have been pretty golden.
According to Forbes ranking of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses, Bullock is number one, having hauled in $56 million between June 2009 and June 2010.
Despite reducing her fee to play the lead in the film “The Blind Side,” her share of the profits paid off handsomely as the movie earned $310 million at the box office – a healthy return on an estimated budget of about $30 million.
If you thought the premise for “Most Wanted,” the movie Sandra Bullock has signed on to, sounded a little off for a woman who just took home an Oscar, you weren’t alone.
The Monday following Bullock's announcement at the MTV Movie Awards that she wasn’t, in fact, done with acting, EW learned that Bullock planned to return to “The Proposal” territory by teaming up with Ryan Reynolds again for the action comedy about a criminal (Bullock) and a U.S. Marshall (Reynolds) forced to go on the run after being ambushed on their way to court.
However, after people scratched their heads in wonder that Bullock would go down that road again now that she could have her pick of dramatic roles, a rep clarified what exactly "signed on to" meant.
From host Aziz Ansari’s opening parody of "Precious" to Peter Facinelli’s F-bomb-strewn Best Movie acceptance speech on behalf of the "New Moon" cast, the MTV Movie Awards was packed with moments both riotous and raucous. Here are some of the highlights that kept viewers buzzing - and the censors reaching for their bleep button.
Awards season isn’t over yet for Sandra Bullock: MTV plans on giving the actress the MTV Generation Award at the network's Movie Awards on Sunday, June 6.
Bullock’s publicist has confirmed that the actress will be there to accept the award, although she won’t be doing any interviews. It will be her first public appearance since reports surfaced that her husband Jesse James cheated on her.
The actress, 45, will be the first woman to take home the Generation Award, which is given to a star who has “engaged the MTV audience throughout their career,” according to a statement from MTV.
Bullock, said MTV’s general manager Stephen Friedman in the statement, “is one of those rare individuals who is adored by our audience as both an actress and a role model." With the Generation award, the network is “Recognizing her remarkable talent, amazing range of films and her visceral connection to our audience around the globe.”
The implosion of Jesse James’ marriage to Sandra Bullock played out in the media for weeks, but everyone could only dance around the essential plot point: Did Jesse James actually cheat? Now, we all have the answer.
When ABC News correspondent Vicki Mabrey asked James during the "Nightline" interview Tuesday if he cheated on Bullock, he only had one thing to say: “Yup.”
So yes, he did cheat, but with how many women? James wouldn't confirm the allegations that he broke his vows with all five women who have described themselves as his mistresses, because to him, the number itself doesn’t really matter. “It could’ve been a million,” he told Mabrey in the interview. “Bad is bad….It’s just that I took a perfect marriage, a perfect wife, a perfect life, a perfect stepmother and threw it away with my actions.”
