Hollywood sweetheart Sandra Bullock turns 58, shares her secret to aging gracefully

Happy 58th Birthday, Sandra Bullock! The beloved actress rose to fame in the '90s with films like Miss Congeniality, Speed and While You Were Sleeping. The actress who turned 58 on July 26, showcased her acting prowess in films like Gravity as well as The Blind Side, the latter of which earned her an Academy Award. Bullock also bagged the title of the World's Most Beautiful Woman in 2015 by PEOPLE. Despite her many achievements, the veteran actress has been rather humble about her journey. Speaking with the outlet in 2015, she said, "I’ve never been a great beauty. I’ve never been the bombshell that was coveted. In an odd way, that made growing older a lot easier in this business. I guess I’m doing it on my own terms, and that is my wish for everyone." She also revealed what she would tell her younger self... that life always works out in the end. “I wish I could go back and tell myself to not worry so much. I wasted so much time with worry. I wish I could get it back,” she shared.
When she was asked what makes her beautiful, she mentioned that she found beauty in her role as mom to her son, Louis “Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it’s just so hard not to say, ‘Oh, I need to look like that,’ ” she explained. “No, be a good person, be a good mom, do a good job with the lunch, let someone cut in front of you who looks like they’re in a bigger hurry. The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren’t trying.” Over the years, her family of two expanded to include another child, a girl she adopted by the name of Laila.
To Bullock, motherhood has been a true blessing. But that's not to say that the mother-of-two hasn't been through her own share of obstacles along the way. One of the hardest moments of her life was her split with her ex-husband, Jesse James, in 2010 after it was revealed that he cheated on her multiple times. As we mentioned, many women claimed that he had an affair with them, while he was married to the Oscar-winning actress. According to ET, James issued a public apology to his ex-wife at the time, stating, "There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me. It's because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way."
The actress initially thought that she was going to be "permanently heartbroken" and had disappeared from the spotlight until the film Gravity came along. She found her strength in her work as well as her loved ones. "I've been on the floor and I've been heartbroken. I didn't know how I was going to stand up. But I just gave it time. You don't think it will pass when you're in the middle of it, but it does. I'm so lucky to have what I have. I have a beautiful child and friends and family I adore," she said, according to the Mirror. What an icon!
