Sandra Bullock is Hollywood’s leading lady, after topping a list of highest paid actresses.
The Oscar-winning actress was propelled to the top of Tinseltown’s female earners’ league following roles in box office hits The Proposal and The Blind Side, which earned her a reported 56 million US dollars over the past 12 months.
Reese Witherspoon and Knight And Day actress Cameron Diaz shared second place in the list compiled by Forbes.com, banking around 32 million dollars each.
While Reese hasn’t been seen on screen since 2008′s Four Christmases, her status was cemented by forthcoming films How Do You Know and the big-screen adaptation of Water For Elephants, in which she features alongside Twilight star Robert Pattinson.
Coming in fourth was Jennifer Aniston, followed by Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie.
Completing the top ten are Drew Barrymore, Meryl Streep and Kristen Stewart.
The Forbes.com list features earnings from films and other ventures, such as beauty ranges and advertising.
In a statement to 24 Frames, Bullock’s agent made a point of noting that “Most Wanted” was in very early development and that Bullock would most certainly shoot something else before this movie, if she shoots it at all. “[Bullock] is simply attached to the project, which is currently in development. This is not her next film,” said Creative Artists Agency managing partner Kevin Huvane, who represents the actress. Indeed, the project is a pitch with no script — writer Peter Chiarelli will set about writing it now — and if that script comes in and doesn’t meet with Bullock’s approval, the actress has a clear out not to make the film.
Huvane went on to leave the door open even more. “There are several projects of many different genres that Ms. Bullock is presently considering and has not committed to any of them at this time.”
“The next project that will follow her Oscar will be chosen carefully and with a great deal of thought,” he added.

Sandra Bullock stole the show at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards. It wasn’t just the kiss she shared with Scarlett Johannson that had the Internet buzzing, but the fact that she looked fabulous! Her back-baring sequin little black dress from designer Oday Shakar was one of my favorites of the evening. Pairing it with a casual ponytail and nude Christian Loubitins added a nice twist to the LBD style staple.
Sandra Bullock stole the show at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards by sharing a stage smooch with Scarlett Johansson — and Gatecrasher hears the lip-lock was all Sandy’s idea.
“Scarlett was originally supposed to present a different award with Zac Efron, but when Sandy heard Scarlett would be there, she reached out to her,” says an insider. “It was a preplanned, scripted kiss the producers knew about – and it was Sandra’s camp’s idea.” The pair talked about their presenting tactic the night before at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards.
It’s nice to be wanted. Confirming what E! Online’s Marc Malkin reported back in March, the Proposal costars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds are set to reunite for Most Wanted, an action-comedy from the screenwriter who brought them together in last summer’s romcom hit.
And the hook this time?
Taking their mature funnylady meets hot younger guy act on the road, the caper follows a criminal suspect (Bullock) who’s escorted to court by an FBI agent (Reynolds) only to find the pair ambushed along the way and forced to go on the run. Hilarity ensues of course, not to mention the obvious sparks.
Guess last night’s kiss at the MTV Movie Awards with Ryan’s missus, Scarlett Johansson, really got Sandy in the mood?
Proposal scribe Peter Chiarelli sold the pitch to Universal Pictures for $1 million and the studio is is in talks with that film’s director, Anne Fletcher, about coming aboard. Reynolds will also executive Most Wanted with his Dark Trick Films partner Jonathan Komack-Martin.
This will be the second romantic-themed flick the thesps will have coupled up for, following such modern big screen pairings as Richard Gere and Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman and The Runaway Bride) and Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan (Joe Vs. the Volcano, Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail).
Better late than never, here’s the pictures of last night show:

More pictures, and video will be added soon, so stay tuned!
For the second time in as many days, Sandra Bullock stepped before the public, looking radiant and collecting awards.
Sunday night her prize was the Generation Award, presented at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards and marking her first televised appearance since the March 7 Oscars and the domestic drama that followed.
Defining the Generation Award as something that goes to “old people” who are clearing out to make way for younger ones, Bullock told the crowd inside Universal City’s Gibson Amphitheater, “That’s not going to happen. I’m staying. Because no matter what you might have seen or heard or read lately, I love what I do. And I’m not going anywhere.”
Further clearing the air, Bullock, 45, said in response to what may have been reported about her, “One, I’m not dead. Two, everyone has cellulite, not just me. Paparazzi need more flattering lenses. And whoever established the high road and how high it should be should be fired.”
Great news, people!
