Defying Gravity: How Sandra Bullock Gets Better with Age

From choice movie roles – Gravity! The Heat! – to becoming a mom to son Louis, the actress proves why she's the center of everyone's universe

SOARING SUCCESS

After taking home the Best Actress Oscar for The Blind Side in 2010, Bullock took her time selecting her next roles, including 2012's The Heat, a female-driven comedy costarring Melissa McCarthy. The R-rated film raked in over $150 million and has already spawned rumors of a sequel, while her latest project, Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity, about an astronaut adrift in space, is garnering more Oscar buzz for the out-of-this-world star.
