Little known facts about Sandra Bullock, our favorite girl next door

Sandra Bullock

She’s appeared in over forty films throughout her career and has become known as “America’s Sweetheart,” but did you know that Sandra Bullock used to have sideburns as a baby? OK, OK, we made that one up. But here are ten true things you never knew about the 45-year-old All About Steve star.

1. She had a lisp as a child

Like any good actor, Sandra used her own personal experiences to help shape her character, Mary Horowitz in All About Steve, by giving her a lisp. “I had a lisp when I was younger, so I thought she should have a lisp and be around people who were OK with it. Obviously, I wasn’t, and went to speech therapy for it. I wish I’d been like her and not worried about what people thought.”

2. She used to be a bartender

Before she helped Keanu Reeves stop a bus from blowing up, Sandra took some odd jobs to get by as a struggling actress in New York. She had stints as a cleaning woman, a coat check girl, a waitress, and a bartender. “I learned a lot of accents as a bartender,” she once said. “A lot of girls came in looking for rich husbands. I learned to imitate them.”

    Was never her biggest fan, but I think watching her make an acceptance speech in her native language is awesome!

    I always really liked her… I feel like she’s got an edge of realness to her that you don’t see often. Plus she’s a hottie that doesn’t look like everyone else!

    I agree with everyone. She has a different look but a cute, girl next door look and she seems really down to earth. I wish her continued luck in all she does. She truly seems happy unlike alot of Hollywood so called success stories.
