No one is more surprised than Sandra that Jesse James is her happily ever after.
The world was definitely surprised when Sandra Bullock went from dating Hollywood hotties like Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Gosling to marrying motorcycle shop owner Jesse James. But no one was more surprised than Sandra herself and she's revealing how looking outside the box for her mate was the best decision that she ever made. Sandra tells Glamour magazine, "I think most of us are raised with preconceived notions of the choices we're supposed to make. We waste so much time making decisions based on someone else's idea of our happiness — what will make you a good citizen or a good wife or daughter or actress. Nobody says, 'Just be happy — go be a cobbler or go live with goats."
With so much heat put on celebrities for who they date and how their mate affects their image, it's so nice to have a star finally speak out on the most important issue of all — they need to be happy first and foremost just like the rest of the world. No wonder so many "dreamy" couples in Hollywood don't last! Sandra goes on to say, "I was never the kind of girl who said, 'One day I am going to be a beautiful bride, and I am going to have a family.' I wanted to work and support myself and make my parents proud. All I did was work. I did three or four films a year, and felt like I was on a treadmill. Finally I said, 'Nothing is exciting me anymore.' So I took six months off, which turned into a year, and said, 'God, I don't miss it.' That's when all kinds of interesting things crossed my path."
Lesson to be learned here? You can never go wrong by following your heart, making your own happiness and never worrying what anyone else thinks!
