The Guardian interviews Bullock about her role in the film The Blind Side.
I mean, I loved the story but I didn’t know how to play her and it was a while before I got there. The director said, after about eight months, ‘Why don’t you go and see Leigh Anne and see what I’m talking about? It’ll explain her.’ I met her and was really blown away by the energy she had. I stopped thinking about it like an actor just seeing a part, and the story is what finally got me.
