Sandra Bullock, Son Louis Support Blind Side Inspiration Michael Oher of the Ravens at Super Bowl: Picture
Sandra Bullock is most definitely a Ravens fan! With adorable son Louis, 2, in tow, the actress, 38, was among the celebrities in the stands at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans for the Super Bowl on Sunday (Feb. 3). But Bullock -- who owns a home in the Louisiana city -- had an especially personal connection to the game, where the Baltimore team triumphed over the San Francisco 49ers.
The star was there to cheer on Michael Oher, a player for the Ravens -- who inspired The Blind Side, the book and then the 2009 film that won Bullock an Academy Award in 2010. With Louis wearing an Oher Ravens jersey, Bullock sat in the stands with Oher's adoptive family, the Tuohys, including his mother Leigh Anne, whom Bullock portrayed in the beloved film.
According to a source, Bullock remains in contact with the family -- texting Michael "all the time about football," the source adds. After a blazing half-time show from Beyonce and a half-hour blackout, the Ravens eventually defeated the 49ers with a final score of 34-31, with player Joe Flacco named MVP.
Bullock won her Blind Side Oscar just a few weeks before learning of then-husband Jesse James' multiple affairs with other women. The pair finalized their divorce in June 2010, and Bullock has yet to share any significant others since that painful split.
