Actress Sandra Bullock will walk the red carpet in New Orleans on Thursday for an evening premiere of her latest film, “The Blind Side.”
Bullock, who recently bought a home in New Orleans, is hosting the event with film studio Warner Bros. to raise money for Warren Easton High School, which was flooded by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Bullock already has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the school for scholarships, new band uniforms, auditorium renovations and a new health clinic.
The movie, which opens in theaters nationwide Friday, is based on a true story of a poor teenager taken in by a family and recruited by a major college to play football. It also stars country singer Tim McGraw.
The best sports movie since “Friday Night Lights” and the best acting Sandra Bullock’s ever done!!
This film scores tons of touchdowns. This is one incredible true story that’s so moving, it inspires you to try to be a better person. Really moving. Best of all, it’s well-acted with just the right sprinkling of comedy to prevent you from od’ing on sugar. Because the real-life couple depicted by a never-been-better Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw seem just too good to be real. In fact- so are their kids. But maybe that’s the New Yorker in me.
This is the story of Ravens offensive lineman Michael Oher and the Memphis family who adopted him after he was abandoned by his drug-addicted mom to fend for himself in the projects.
Newcomer Quinton Aaron is perfect as the gentle giant Big Mike. “Friday Night Lights” standout Tim Mcgraw has a less demanding role this time as the laid –back balance to the tornado that is his wife. But it’s Sandra Bullock’s moment to shine after a number of fumbles including “All about Steve”, “Premonition” and “The Lake House”. She was born to play this role!!! P.S. to New York Giants fans: you will LOVE the opening scene.
The NY premiere of “The Blind Side” was tonight, and I’ve uploaded pictures to you. Sandra looks gorgeous in black:

Sandra Bullock’s portrayal of southern mom Leigh Anne Tuohy in the new film The Blind Side finds her in a blond wig, looking astonishingly like Kathie Lee Gifford, according to Today’s Matt Lauer.
Even though Kathie Lee instantly appears on set to compare hair, it’s her rear end that attracts Bullock’s admiration.
Look for her next project to be a Kathie Lee biopic. Called The Back Side
