Sandra Bullock made a donation Friday of $1 Million to Doctors Without Borders Emergency Operations for Haiti Earthquake relief efforts.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) received a $1 million donation from Sandra on Friday.
The actress made the donation to support the organization’s emergency medical operations responding to the devastation caused by the Jan. 12 earthquake that struck Haiti.
“I wanted to ensure that my donation would be used immediately to meet the needs of the Haitian people affected by this catastrophic event,” Sandra said.
Sandra Bullock says her husband Jesse James has struggled to adjust to being married to a Hollywood star.
The 44-year-old actress – who is married to motorcycle shop owner Jesse James – admits Jesse struggled when he was thrust into the spotlight after they began dating.
She said: “I think I’ve benefited from marrying him, but I think him marrying me brought on so many hardships and cruelty from people because of the limelight now being shined on all of them. Thank God he still loves me.
“I, unfortunately brought some attention to him which he didn’t necessarily want. But guess what? He loves me. I married an average Joe who normally would be fixing your car and people normally look down on what he did but I know how extraordinary he is and I’m thankful that with all the attention he’s still OK being with me. He doesn’t like it, but he’s OK.”
Sandra added she worries about the attention her career brings to her loved ones, adding the way their lives become public property is unfair.
Asked why so many famous people choose to marry other celebrities like she has done, Sandra replied: “Did you know my husband before I married him? Did you know who he was? Most people, didn’t and I’m sure he preferred that.
“My husband is an extraordinary human being, one of the most talented people I have ever met in my life, a great father, an amazing husband and an insanely funny man. No one knew who he was outside of the people who should know who he was.
“Sadly, the nature of what I do brings notice to people who have no desire to be in that spotlight, and it can destroy lives.” [Source]

Sandra Bullock has rubbished rumours that she was ever going to appear in Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables.
The Speed actress was previously linked to the project, but denied having any contact with Stallone about the film.
“I don’t know where that came from,” she told Empire. “I never read the script, I didn’t even know what the script was about. But now that I know what it’s about, I’m excited for him.”
However, Bullock admitted that she would love to return to working on action movies. “Absolutely, but finding a good one is not easy,” she said.
Bullock is currently promoting romcom The Proposal, which is released on July 22.
The Expendables will follow the story of a group of mercenaries tasked with overthrowing a South American dictator. Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Charisma Carpenter, Mickey Rourke, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Arnold Schwarzenegger are among the cast. [SOURCE]
After a two-year vacation from the big screen, Sandra Bullock is finally back in The Proposal, opposite that leading man women die for, Ryan Reynolds.
Audiences can catch Bullock in her first ever nude scene — and her hunky co-star strips down too.
Sandra told Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf that after heading for the gym and watching those carbs, she didn’t hesitate to go au naturel.
Taking it all off.
“The nudity was appropriate for the film. I had to be buck-naked. The big thing was that it was funny. And the only way it could be funny was if you saw my whole body. Ann Fletcher, the director, was amazing in how she choreographed it because we knew we couldn’t show anything too explicit. I had a little bit more area to cover than Ryan did, so it was a little trickier for me. But I can talk about Ryan’s penis if you want. I mean if I looked like him, I’d be naked all the time.”
What you won’t see on the big screen.
“You have things covering up your essential parts but they get unstuck. And, oddly enough, we didn’t care because we were so tired. Ann was like, ‘Sandra, your vagina is hanging out. Cover it up.’ I’m like, ‘Oh, sorry, sorry.’ And the crew would be like, ‘Jeez, her nipple is showing.’ They weren’t titillated, they were unhappy because they knew we had to retake the shot. They’re like, ‘We want to go to lunch. Cover the nip.’ So that’s pretty much how the day went.”
Trying to take life easy.
“I am like the queen of planning and scheduling. And I’m trying very hard to stop it. I just want to finish what I’m doing and go home. I want to have a weekend. I want to have breakfast, a stack of pancakes. I don’t want to not enjoy where I am at this very moment. So every time I plan something, the exact opposite happens. I hope I’m always satisfied and content like I am right at this very moment.” [Source]
Sandra Bullock opens up about her married life.
In the latest issue of “Harper’s Bazaar,” Sandra Bullock, 44, reveals that marrying her husband Jesse James taught her some hard lessons in letting loose and allowing him to dote on her a little.
“I’ve had to learn a hard lesson in that I’m not allowed to open car doors anymore,” Bullock says in the June issue. “It was so hard for me to allow someone to take care of me. It’s not because I can’t take care of myself. But Jesse was like, ‘Just let me do this.’”
Another lesson she’s had to learn is how to be a good stepmother to James’s three children, son Jesse Jr., 11, and daughters Chandler, 14, and Sunny, 5, from two previous marriages.
“You don’t have to give birth to someone to have a family,” Bullock says. “I’m not going to spend two seconds of my life wishing I had something I don’t… I just want people to admit that there’s no one way to live your life.”
Now that Bullock has both the successful career and happy family she always wanted, she says that she finally has the independence she always needed.
“I was worried that if I didn’t stay on track and work, work, work, I was never going to accomplish anything. Now I’m trying to have fun and have the freedom to do nothing,” she said.
There are additional questions with Sandra that didn’t make it into the In Style Magazine! See them HERE. Thanks Brenda from In Style for letting me know!
Sandra Bullock. You have to believe me that the Miss Congeniality star is whip-smart and able to banter with the best of them. The woman obviously had a fine upbringing and paid attention during school. Face it, it takes a genius to keep getting such young hotties, both onscreen and off.
Like many women, Sandra Bullock, 44, has longed for a child but has not yet fulfilled that dream. Now, the actress — who will soon appear in the comedy All About Steve — will become a full-time mother to 5-year-old Sunny, her stepdaughter with husband Jesse James, 39.
Already close to Sunny — the two are often seen at the playground — Sandra takes on this new responsibility under difficult circumstances: On March 10, Sunny’s mother, former adult film star Janine Lindemulder, 40, will head for federal prison to serve a six-month sentence for income tax evasion. While Janine is behind bars, an Orange County, Calif., court awarded temporary full custody of Sunny to Jesse.
“Sandra will be fantastic as a full-time mom,” says actor Denis O’Hare, her co-star in her upcoming film The Proposal. “Jesse’s daughter is lucky to have Sandra in her life.”
The role of stepmom is not new to Sandra: She’s also close to Jesse’s two older children, daughter Chandler, 13, and son Jesse Jr., 10, from his marriage to Karla James.
“If the court gave Jesse James custody of Sunny, well… that’s her daddy. He should take care of her,” Janine’s aunt, Marjorie Lindemulder, tells OK!. “I just hope and pray for everyone involved.”
As for Sandra, the challenge appears to be a blessing. “I don’t see the difference in having blood-related kids or children who come with your husband,” she said last
spring. “I am very blessed.”
