Sandra Bullock further cemented her place in Hollywood’s elite with 2009’s The Blindside, which was released six years ago today, a heartwarming and true sports film about underprivileged football player Michael Oher. After an impoverished childhood with a junkie mother, Oher was adopted by the wealthy Tuohy family. Using their vast resources, Leigh Anne and Sean helped to transform Oher into a first-round draft pick. He currently plays for the Carolina Panthers.
Sporting a blonde ‘do, Bullock’s no-nonsense portrayal of the real-life Tennessean led the movie (based on aspects of Michael Lewis’ book about the transformation of the offensive tackle position) to box office success and a place on family DVD shelves everywhere. With a cast of Hollywood greats and even music superstars, it’s no surprise the most of the onscreen Tuohy family and friends are still doing well.
Here’s what they’re up to now.
