A prowler was arrested outside of Sandra Bullock’s West Los Angeles home early Sunday morning. The suspect is 39-year-old Joshua Corbett, who was picked-up by police officers at 6:30 A.M. after a reported break in. The Gravity (2013), and Miss Congeniality (2000) actress is unharmed, but has made no public comment on the incident.
On June 8, 2014, Bullock awoke to a terrifying experience, which is sometime suffered by the unfortunate and famous. The 49-year-old actress was at home when a strange man attempted to break into her Beverly Hills apartment. It is unclear whether the man is a thief or a stalker, but Sandra Bullock is expected to press charges against him. Joshua Corbett was arrested for burglary after gaining entrance to her property while the actress slept inside. No further information on the suspect has been released, and his mental condition is unknown.
The Saturday night before her LA home prowler incident, Sandra Bullock was presented with the Decade of Hotness Award at Spike Guys’ Choice Awards. The ceremony was held at Sony Picture Studios in California’s Culver City. She was awarded with a tiara, sash and an antler trophy honoring her beauty. In her acceptance speech she joked about feeling like she was at her funeral, and that she was unsure which decade of hotness they were referring to in giving her the award.
Award winning is no uncommon thing for the decorated actress. She won an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in the 2009 film, The Blind Side. She was nominated for the same award at the 2014 Oscars for Gravity (2014). Although she did not win the award, Gravity won seven Oscars that evening including Best Achievement in Directing, and Best Achievement in Cinematography.
The actress has been busy recently with her work on the Universal Studios animated movie, Minions. Minions is an upcoming spin off to the popular Despicable Me (2010) series, which stars Steve Carell as a goofy evil genius. The minions from the film have become lovable comedic figures, sparking the spin off movie which is expected to hit theaters in 2015. Bullock does the voice of Scarlett Overkill in the film, along with Jon Hamm as Herb Overkill. Carell returns as Gru to stop the couple from taking over the world.
Along with Minions, Sandra Bullock is rumored to be returning to her role as Sarah Ashburn in the sequel to the popular 2013 comedy, The Heat. Bullock plays a police officer, taking down bad guys with her partner played by Melissa McCarthy. The two prove to be a perfect comedy duo, scoring the film a 6.7 on IMDB. The plot details of the sequel are still being finalized, but the ladies will be back in action in the attempts to bust two troublesome villains.
Sandra Bullock has played a lot of tough characters throughout her career, and hopefully she carries some of that toughness in her personal life. Although she was not harmed, the actress is most likely shook up as she recovers from her LA home prowler scare.
