Sandra Bullock Critically-acclaimed American actress and producer Sandra Bullock was born on July 26, 1964 – which also places her astrological sign as a Leo. Her positive affinity with the Leo sign can be best seen in her youth. Leo's are generally creative, enthusiastic, broad-minded and expansive not only with their outlook in life but also in the way they present themselves to others. Though born in Arlington, Virginia, she spent most of her early years travelling in Europe, her mother being an active German opera singer and voice teacher. She became fluent in German having spent most of her younger years accompanying her mother on her European opera tours and living in Salzburg and Nuremberg with her aunt and grandmother respectively. Her father was a military serviceman having been stationed in Nuremberg where he met his future wife, married her and then moved back to the US soon after.
As a child, Sandra studied ballet and the vocal arts where they were put to good use by taking small parts in her mother’s opera productions. Though she dropped out of college just a few credits shy from graduating in order to pursue her acting career, she nevertheless completed her coursework and successfully graduated later on. Leos are also known to be independent and are very capable of being greatly successful on their own. Nowhere was this very true when Sandra was struggling to make a name for herself in her early years as an actress especially when she moved to Manhattan and took on odd jobs as a bartender, cocktail waitress and coat checker to support herself. Of course, like the eponymous lion in a pride, Leos thrive in familiar companionship, captivated audiences and even the admiration of fans. She herself has even admitted though that she likes to be alone sometimes, she cannot get through a week just by herself and happily welcomes the company of friends and family often dropping by.
Her fame and career was established in the 1990s owing to a slew of successful films, many of which have also cemented her as a household name and Hollywood icon in that decade. Films like Speed (1994), While You Were Sleeping (1995), Miss Congeniality (2000), Crash (2004), The Proposal (2009) and The Blind Side (2009) have not only proven to be box office hits but also financially successful ensuring her equally iconic status as one of the richest female celebrities in the world. This list of achievements is proof enough that she lives up to the reputation of a Leo.
