Elevated to superstar status with the 1994 action thriller "Speed," co-starring Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock initially earned a modest $500,000 for her role. In the absence of Keanu Reeves for the sequel in 1997, Sandra secured a significant $10.5 million to reprise her character as Annie Potter, despite her discontent with the project. She later admitted this decision to be among her major regrets, as she undertook the role to fund her 1998 film "Hope Floats."

"I have one film that nobody really came around to, and I'm still feeling embarrassed that I was part of it – it's called Speed 2 – and I've been quite vocal about it. It doesn't make sense: a slow boat moving toward an island," she revealed to Entertainment Weekly. "That's one project I wish I had skipped."

For her role in the 2013 movie "Gravity", Sandra Bullock received an upfront payment of $20 million along with a 15 percent share of the studio's box office earnings, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. Once the box office figures for the blockbuster were tallied, her 15 percent stake translated into a staggering $74 million paycheck.

Between June 2009 and June 2010, the Virginia-born actress raked in an impressive $56 million, according to Forbes. This windfall was attributed to her starring roles in two major box office hits, "The Blind Side" and "The Proposal" as per In Touch.

Opting for a share of the film's box office profits instead of her usual salary, Sandra was handsomely rewarded. "The Proposal", where she also held an executive producer role, garnered an impressive $320 million against a budget of $40 million. Similarly, The "Blind Side" achieved a remarkable $310 million box office performance, despite an estimated budget of just $30 million.

Bullock received an upfront payment of $20 million for her role in "Gravity". However, her agreement also included 15% of the film's box office revenue, ultimately earning her a minimum of $70 million.

Beyond her film career, Sandra Bullock ventured into the restaurant business in 2006 by establishing Bess Bistro in her adopted hometown of Austin, Texas. Three years later, she expanded her culinary endeavors with the addition of a second eatery, Walton’s Fancy and Staple. Expressing her sentiments to Vogue in 2013, Sandra remarked, "The acting thing is so beyond my control. Acting isn’t mine. You are like a tiny piece in this big corporate mechanism that needs chemistry and divine intervention. This [referring to Bess Bistro and Walton’s Fancy and Staple] is mine."
