Sandra_Bullocks_Star_on_the_Hollywood_Walk_of_FameIt may not have been a good year personally, but her career really shot to the top as Sandra Bullock was named highest paid actress of the year.

The 46 year old actress hauled in 56 million dollars from films The Proposal (317 million dollars) and The Blind Side (309 million dollars). Of course she also had that film called All About Steve.

Her role in The Blind Side earned her the Best Actress awards this year from the Broadcast Film Critics, the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild and the Academy Awards.

The announcement came from Forbes after they calculated earnings by actresses from the period of June 2009 to June 2010.

Placing at second and third places are Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon with 32 million dollars each. Jennifer Aniston comes in fourth with 27 million dollars. Rounding up the top five is Sarah Jessica Parker with 25 million dollars. Angelina Jolie was not featured in any film during the period covered by Forbes.

Bullock’s personal life this year is at the opposite end of the spectrum after infidelity scandal broke out for husband Jesse James.
