By Suren Prasad

Sandra Bullock net worth – we calculate screen siren Sandra Bullock’s net worth to be an estimated £138 million.

Sandra Bullock was born to John Bullock and Helge Mathilde on July 26, 1964 in Arlington, Virginia.

Raised in Nuremberg, Germany for 12 years, she was inspired by her mother to pursue vocal arts and ballet and also sang in the Staatstheater Nürnberg.

Returning to the US, she graduated in drama from East Carolina University in 1986 and then relocated to Manhattan doing odd-jobs to sustain her acting pursuits, which paid off with a role in No Time Flat (an off-Broadway play) and later in Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman (1989).

After a lead role in Working Girl (1990), she landed parts in Love Potion No. 9 (1992), Fire on the Amazon and a role flanking ‘Sly’ Stallone in the sci-fi/action flick Demolition Man (1993).

Speed (1994) raked in $350 million and led to other successes such as While You Were Sleeping (nominated for Golden Globe’s Best Actress), The Net (1995) and A Time to Kill (1996).

Bullock’s $11 million wages for the sequel, Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997), were used to finance her own movie, Hope Floats (1998).

Other movies include Practical Magic (1998), 28 Days (2000), Two Weeks Notice (2002, $199 million), Infamous (2006) and Premonition (2007). She also lent her voice for Prince of Egypt (1998).
