Thanks to the movie “Gravity,” Sandra Bullock earned more than any other actress this year.
On paper, the movie Gravity seemed like a crazy risk. The effects-heavy movie cost upward of $100 million to produce and instead of comic book heroes duking it out, the film featured one woman floating in space for almost the entire 90-minute running time.
Despite the odds, Gravity turned out to be one of the highest-grossing movies of 2013 bringing in $716 million at the global box office. Movies based on original ideas, as opposed to comic books or young adult novels, are rare these days in Hollywood. Movies based on original ideas that cost $100 million to produce and feature one actress for the majority of the screen time are even rarer but director Alfonso Cuaron and Warner Bros. had a huge hit with “Gravity.”
Much of that success can be chalked up to Sandra Bullock’s gripping performance as Ryan Stone. Not only did the film win seven Oscars but it also helped Bullock become this year’s highest-paid actress.The film was the rare commercial and critical success. Gravity earned 10 Oscar nomination and won seven gold statues.
Gravity star Sandra Bullock didn’t win for Best Actress this year (though she did in 2010 for The Blind Side) but she did walk away with a ton of money. Thanks mostly to Gravity, Bullock tops the Forbes 2014 list of the highest-earnings actress with an estimated $51 million in earnings between June 2013 and June 2014.
