[post_page_title]Sandra Bullock vs. Leigh Anne Tuohy[/post_page_title]
After years of appearing mainly in genre roles, from romantic comedies to action flicks, Sandra Bullock found herself at a stage in her career where she wanted to be challenged. Luckily for her, and the rest of us, the perfect role came along. It wasn’t going to be easy, though. Bullock herself said, “I’d either pull it off or look like a fool doing it.” She pulled it off. Playing Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side, Bullock was electric as the woman who adopts a homeless African-American teen, and shepherding him all the way to the NFL. The role won her her first Oscar.
