Sometimes relationships do not turn out to be the way we want it to be. Relationships may start off with mutual love and understanding, but as time passes a variety of experiences and perspectives can change that. When such a relationship ends badly, it might cause you to lose hope in the concept of love itself. Though life may sometimes break your heart, giving up or losing hope, tempting as it may be, is not the best option. It is possible for things to fall in place such that you meet someone else with whom you can cultivate such a profound relationship. The award-winning actress and philanthropist Sandra Bullock is a perfect example.
Beginning her acting career at 23, the road ahead of this actress was not easy. Despite the odds, Sandra rose up and fought to become one of the biggest names in the Hollywood industry. The actress also had some tough times with her marriage to her first husband Jesse Gregory James whom she married in 2005. Sadly, the couple got divorced in 2010. However, years down the line Sandra has found love in her relationship with Bryan Randall.
According to ENews, The actress was looking for love and said in an interview for Detour that she was seeing someone “really sweet.” She also added that dating was not a good experience for her. “For a year I was by myself trying to date and I’m telling you dating was the worst experience I ever had. I seem to have attracted everyone whose intentions were not the best,” said Sandra in the interview. She even revealed that she feared not finding anybody suitable for her. “They were nice people but they just weren’t suited for me and that’s hard because I seriously thought I’m never ever going to find anybody that will love me and just enjoy life,” she told ENews.
Years later, The Proposal star began dating Jesse Gregory James. They got married but eventually filed for divorce when she found out that he cheated on her during their five years of marriage. The actress, who had just won an Oscar and was at the process of adopting her first son Louis, was left devastated and broken. “She was embarrassed by what he did and in ways blamed herself at the time. She did consider Jesse a father to Louis, so that was one of the hardest parts of breaking up,” said an insider to ENews.
However, Sandra did not let her circumstances take control over her. Over the next few years, she remained dedicated to being a great mother to her son Louis. In 2015, Sandra went on to adopt her second child, Laila. From then on, she focused on raising her two kids and building a great career.
However, she finally took her own advice from 1996 where she said the best way to get over somebody was to meet someone new. “I’m not saying go out and sleep with them. I’m just saying go out and have a conversation and know that they find you attractive and go, ‘Okay, I’m not the piece of trash that I thought I was two days ago,” said Sandra. At age 54, the actress is dating Bryan Randall and today she claims he is the man she has been waiting for her entire life.
Given the female gaze her new boyfriend has caught and the news of how great he is with kids spreading fast, Sandra was once asked about whether she wanted to expand it further. The actress had a simple response. “No, I think this is it,” Bullock said. “But everyone keeps saying, ‘Never say never,’ so I’ll say, ‘No, I think our family is complete.'”
