Sandra bullock scar cut her head, rock

Sandra Bullock is in the news, but not to promote a movie. She and her hubby, Jesse James, are in the middle of a knock down, drag out custody battle with his ex-wife over his daughter Sunny. The girl has been living with the couple full-time, while mommy Janine spent a little time in jail. Sandy’s pretty good at keeping her private life private. In fact, few people had heard about the little girl, and that Sandy basically has been her full-time mom, until Janine decided to go on the “Today Show” to do a little mudslingling.

So we thought we’d look to find some other things we didn’t know about “The Proposal” actress. Did you know her mother was a German opera singer, her dad was a Pentagon contractor, and her grandfather was a rocket scientist? Or that she lived in Europe until she was 12 and sang in a children’s opera choir at Staatstheater Nuremberg? Read on to learn more fun facts about Sandra Bullock.

She Got Her Start on TV
Sandra’s big break was positively bionic. Remember the 1989 made-for-TV movie “Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman”? Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers teamed up with the help of some cyborg newbies to battle a bionic bad guy. Who played their technologically enhanced assistant? None other than TV first-timer Sandra Bullock. Sandra then went on to the TV version of the successful film “Working Girl” as Tess McGill, the part created by Melanie Griffith for the big screen.

She Won’t Sell Her First Car
Sandra Bullock, one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses, drives a 15-year-old car. Granted, it’s a BMW, but still. Actually, the story is quite sweet. After she got one of her first big paychecks (we’re guessing for “Speed,” based on the vehicle’s age) she bought her mom a black BMW as a Christmas present. Her mom passed away in 2000, and when Sandra learned her dad was planning to sell the car, she bought it back as a memento of her mom. She still drives it when she’s home in Austin, Texas.
