Sandra Bullock turns 49 years young on Friday.

Given her looks, positive attitude, sense of humor, approachability and infectiously endearing personality, it's no wonder she's become known as America's Sweetheart.

Sexy Sandra

After winning an Academy Award for The Blind Side and being blindsided by Jesse James, Bullock took time off to focus on a much more important role:

Mother to adopted son Louis Bardot.

She's returned to acting with some memorable recent roles (most recently The Heat), and continues to prove she can be as versatile as she is awesome.

We wish her all the best personally and professionally, and can't wait to see what the next phase of her career holds. Happy 49th birthday, Sandy!

Other notable birthdays today: Helen Mirren (68), Kevin Spacey (54), Kate Beckinsale (40), Jeremy Piven (48), Chris Harrison (42) and Mick Jagger (70).

Sandra Bullock turns 47 years young today.

An Academy Award winner, Bullock is known to many fans as America's Sweetheart, given her looks, positive attitude and infectious personality.

The way she handled her ugly split with Jesse James (who just confirmed his breakup with Kat Von D earlier this morning) was a study in class.

After winning an Oscar for The Blind Side, Bullock took time off to focus on a much more important role: Mother to adopted son Louis Bardot.

We wish her all the best personally and professionally.

One of our favorite stars, Sandra Annette Bullock, turns 46 today.

She's been around for many years, starring in successful hits such as Speed, While You Were Sleeping, Miss Congeniality and Crash, which received critical acclaim.

Just last year, Bullock starred in the most commercially successful films of her career, The Proposal and The Blind Side, winning an Academy Award for the latter.

She's a great actress, but that's not why we love her.

From her handling of the Jesse James cheating scandal to her efforts to help the Gulf Coast, to her sincere, laid-back demeanor, she is truly America's Sweetheart.
