Sandra Bullock was born on July 26th, 1964 in Arlington, VA.  Here is a brief synopsis and outline of her career, a more complete picture and the rest of this article can be found at http://www.biography.com/people/sandra-bullock-9542453?page=1#synopsis:


“Born July 26, 1964, in Arlington, Virginia, Sandra Bullock made her first stage appearance at age five in an opera in Germany. She first became widely known for her role in the 1994 hit Speed. She has since starred in many more films, and won an Academy Award for Best Actress and a Golden Globe for her performance in The Blind Side, based on the true-life story of football player Michael Oher.

Born on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., to a German opera singer and a voice teacher, Bullock grew up largely on the road. She studied music and dance while she traveled throughout Europe, and made her first stage appearance at the age of 5 in a small role for an opera in Nuremburg, Germany. The performance helped her to develop a love of the stage, and she began appearing regularly in the Nuremburg children’s choir. When Bullock was 12, her family moved back to the D.C. area, where she attended Washington-Lee High School. Bullock had no problem fitting in, becoming involved in cheerleading and school theater productions until her graduation in 1982. Bullock then enrolled in East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, to study acting, but left college only three credits shy of her bachelor’s degree. Instead, she moved to New York in 1986 to pursue acting in earnest.”
