There were lots of famous faces in the crowd at Super Bowl XLVII, including actress Sandra Bullock. But she wasn’t alone — she was sitting with the Tuohy family, of “The Blind Side,” the movie which earned Bullock an Oscar.
Bullock and the Tuohy family were there to cheer on Michael Oher, the man who as a teen was adopted by the Tuohy family. Oher was born to a crack-addicted mother and was in and out of foster care, but the Tuohys took him in and got him into a good high school football program — now he’s winning the Super Bowl.
Bullock played mom Leigh Anne Tuohy in “The Blind Side,” the story of Oher’s life. The real Leigh Anne tells the Daily Mail that Bullock is Oher’s biggest fan.
“She follows Michae’s career every step of the way. It’s funny — I’ll get texts [from her] during the game: ‘Why did they do this? They should have done that’,” says Leigh Anne.
Also on hand with the group was Bullock’s 3-year-old son Louis, sporting a Michael Oher jersey. The Daily Mail has pictures. What a cutie!
