Sandra Bullock is one of he most popular and recognisable stars in the world. And in 2010, her star was shining brighter than ever before.

The "Speed" actress had just won an Oscar for her role in the blindside when she was blindsided by cheating rumours.

It is known that, in March, 2010, reports surfaced that her then husband, Monster Garage host, Jesse James, had cheated with Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.

James confirmed the affair with a public apology, but four more women were soon named as mistresses. By the end of April, Bullock had filed for divorce.

It was particularly embarrassing because while dominating the awards season that year Bullock could be seen gushing over her husband in her speeches. It was obvious she was in love. But sadly, her marriage had been a sham.

Sandra Bullock seems to have put all of that sadness and betrayal behind her, as she continues to be one of the most successful actors in Hollywood who still earns millions of dollars.
