Bullock and the German opera singer Helga Mathilde Meyer. Sandra spent much of her youth singing in a choir in Nuremberg, Germany, where her father was stationed and ran the Army’s Military Mail Service. It was there that her father and mother met and married. She spent the first decade of her life in Nuremberg, Vienna and Salzburg. The family returned to Arlington when Sandra was about 12, and her father became a contractor for the Pentagon.

After college, Bullock moved to New York City to pursue an acting career, where she worked, attended acting classes and auditions, and took on roles for stage and student films. She worked as a bartender, cocktail waitress and dresser to pay the bills while auditioning for various roles. She also took acting classes from Sanford Meisner.
After moving to Los Angeles, Bullock maintained a steady stream of small roles. Impressed by her performance in an Off-Broadway play he had seen, director Alan J. Levi offered her a role in the 1989 film made for the TV movie Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man and the Die bionic woman.
That led to the revelation that secured her many small roles in several small films (and the NBC television version of the 1990 film Working Girl) until 1993 when she landed a starring role in Demolition Man opposite Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes.
The following year, Bullock starred opposite Annie Porter in the smash hit blockbuster Speed, which grossed $350.4 million worldwide. With her groundbreaking performance, Bullock’s career exploded into the stratosphere overnight.
