Brunette Sandra Bullock Premieres ‘The Blind Side’

With a thick Southern accent and a blond hairdo, it’s hard to recognize that it’s actually Sandra Bullock in her new film, The Blind Side. But the actress has returned to her dark brown roots to hit the red carpet for the premiere of the film in New York City–much to the relief of her family.

“They didn’t like it at all,” Bullock tells People magazine, sporting her dark tresses pulled back and a sleek black dress for the occasion. Of her husband Jesse James’ reaction to her new do, Sandra says, “Thank God an important person in my life didn’t want me being blonde. He was like, ‘I don’t like the blonde on you.'”

Meanwhile, Sandra’s co-star, Tim McGraw looked as if he couldn’t be happier to have his real-life blond wife, Faith Hill, on his arm to support him at the premiere of his most recent movie.
