Bullock most recently starred with Bradley Cooper in the comedy “All About Steve,” which she also produced for her production company, Fortis Films. She also starred opposite Ryan Reynolds in the romantic comedy smash hit “The Proposal,” which has grossed over $300 million worldwide. Bullock has also recently earned praise for her performances in such dramas as the Truman Capote biopic “Infamous,” in which she portrayed author Harper Lee, and the 2004 Oscar-winning Best Picture, “Crash,” directed by Paul Haggis, for which she shared in a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for Outstanding Performance by a Motion Picture Cast.

Bullock had already appeared in several acclaimed motion pictures when her breakthrough came in the 1994 runaway hit “Speed.” Her next two features, “While You Were Sleeping,” for which she earned her first Golden Globe nomination, for Best Actress – Comedy or Musical, and “The Net” were both critical and popular successes.

Sandra Bullock Gives $1 Million To Doctors Without Borders for Haiti Relief

Posted by: Audiegrl

Award-winning actress and producer Sandra Bullock said Friday she donated $1 million toward Haitian earthquake relief.

Bullock’s contribution went to Doctors Without Borders’ emergency operations in Port-Au-Prince, where three of the organization’s existing facilities were damaged by the magnitude 7.0 quake.

I wanted to ensure that my donation would be used immediately to meet the needs of the Haitian people affected by this catastrophic event,” said Bullock in a statement.

I urge all of my friends and fans around the world to join me collectively to match my contribution or give in any way you can,” she said. “We must act now.”

Earlier Friday, Not On Our Watch, an advocacy and grantmaking group founded by George Clooney, Brad Pitt and others, donated $1 million to Partners in Health. Madonna also announced she gave $250,000 toward the effort as celebrity aid continued to pour into the devastated country.

The international Red Cross estimates 45,000 to 50,000 people were killed in the earthquake, which devastated the Caribbean nation on Tuesday.
