Miss Congeniality: Supporting Sandra Bullock Though Her Films
I'll admit it, I am both obsessed and in love with all things Sandra Bullock right now. Not to say I didn't love her before, because I did, but with all that has gone on in the last few weeks it bears a new commitment. Instead of focusing on all the nasty tabloid crap, I wanted to come up with a way to send my support to her as she goes through the most painful period in her life. I hope those of you who are feeling the need to send Sandy some love will share in this idea.
Sandra's charm is hard to define. Sure she's beautiful — but in an unconventional way. Those chiseled features are softened by her exotic and smoldering brown eyes, and her smile has a wattage that would put Julia Roberts to shame. At almost 5'8," she is both statuesque and shapely, but never painfully thin. Sandra's just right in every way, not too perfect, but extraordinary enough to make her special.
Then there's her acting and how in intermingles with her real personality. When you watch Sandy in the movies it feel likes taking a peek inside her life. I never feel like I am watching "Sandra Bullock the Movie Star" but rather Sandra during a certain situation in her own life. Based on what her peers, friends and loved ones say, she's just as quirky, charismatic and lovable as the characters she plays.
There's also a formula to Bullock's characters, which makes sense considering she hand picks her films and has her own production company. Sandra's skill lay in her ability to be malleable and versatile, a master of transformation, like a goose to a swan.
So, after a visit to my local Wal-Mart, where I searched high and low for all things Sandra, I began my sojourn with Love Potion No. This was Sandra's first starring role and she played opposite Tate Donovan, her real-life ex-fiance (who was also engage to America's other sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston). Sandra played an unattractive science geek who studied chimps. She wore prosthetic teeth to ugly herself up — but with the help of some confidence boosting potion, it wasn't long until Sandra was dating a prince and the object of many men's desire.Continued on the next page
