Sandra Bullock Was Unwilling to Take 'Blind Side' Role


Sandra Bullock


Winning Best Actress prize at Oscars for his role in 'The Blind Side', Sandra Bullock admits she was at first reluctant to take the part since she wasn't sure she could do Leigh Anne Tuohy's justice.

Sandra Bullock almost turned down her Oscar-winning role in "The Blind Side" - she was terrified she wouldn't do "justice" to the part. Bullock received her first Academy Award on March 7 for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy, a real life mum who adopted Michael Oher and encouraged him to follow his dream of becoming a football star.

But when Bullock was first handed the script, she was reluctant to accept as she didn't think she would be able to play the role convincingly - and it took director John Lee Hancock months to persuade her to change her mind. She tells British newspaper The Times, "It took John Lee Hancock nearly a year to persuade me to meet Leigh Anne, and even then I wasn't sure I could do her justice. I also don't think I could have done this role even five years ago, but yes, having a family of my own helped clarify the dynamics in my head."

Bullock and her husband Jesse James were handed primary custody of his six-year-old daughter Sunny in 2009 after her mother was jailed on tax evasion charges.
