The Sandra Bullock Movie You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Sandra Bullock is (thankfully) back in peak rom-com form with the release of "The Lost City." Unfortunately for audiences, Sandy B. also announced she's taking a step back from acting for a few years to focus on her kids. While this is sad news for us, luckily, we still have her vast filmography to tide us over in the meantime. Though she may be absent from the big screen for the foreseeable future, our screens are always willing and ready to display her charming face.

Bullock has been in a lot of movies though, so where to begin? She's certainly added a lot to the rom-com genre, so you could definitely start there. But she's also proven herself adept at action and adventure, so if you want something that will get your blood pumping, she can give that to you too. And let's not forget the times she's dabbled in fantasy, something that might be enticing to all you dreamers out there. Now you might be thinking, "there are so many Sandra Bullock movies, which one best represents me?" Well, dear reader, we've got you covered. Read on to find out which Sandra Bullock movie you are based on your zodiac sign, and maybe you can get some movie recommendations along the way.

Aries: Speed

The sign of Aries — which applies to those born between March 21 and April 19 – is all about action. Aries are the fastest-moving out of all the signs, and they love to come in first place. This passionate fire sign is courageous, competitive, and not afraid to back down from a fight.

If there's one Sandra Bullock movie that most aligns with the quick-fire energy of an Aries, it's the one and only "Speed." The 1994 film was Bullock's breakthrough role, and it also stars Keanu Reeves as an LAPD officer. The plot of the film is fairly simple: A former bomb squad member (Dennis Hopper) attaches a bomb to a bus that will explode if the bus goes slower than 50 miles per hour. It's up to Jack (Reeves) and his partner Harry (Jeff Daniels) to keep the bomb from going off. Jack enlists the help of a passenger, Annie (Bullock), to drive the bus and save them all from total destruction.

"Speed" is an extremely fun movie, and if you're an action-loving Aries, you're bound to have a good time with this one. The plot may be simple, but Bullock and Reeves are extremely charming together. So, even if action isn't your thing, there's enough humor and great chemistry to satisfy the die-hard rom-com fans among us too.

Taurus: The Lost City

Romantic comedies seem to be something of a lost art form these days, but luckily, Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum have returned to save the day. "The Lost City" follows Loretta Sage (Bullock), a reclusive historian who writes action/adventure romance novels. The protagonist of her novels is a man named Dash, who is portrayed by attractive but empty-headed cover model Alan Caprison (Channing Tatum). When Loretta gets kidnapped by a deranged billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe), Alan decides to be the hero he portrays on her book covers and rescue her.

Despite the outlandish adventure she embarks upon, all Loretta really wants to do is be at home with her books. Because of this, the sign that most aligns with "The Lost City" is Taurus. Born between April 20 and May 20, Taureans are earth signs symbolized by the bull. This means that they tend to be very set in their ways, and they love being at home surrounded by their treasured possessions. Patient, responsible individuals, sometimes stubborn Taureans can be hard-pressed to do something they don't want to do.

For Loretta, her stubbornness means that she rarely leaves her home and doesn't much enjoy the excitement of a press tour. Luckily, her kidnapping shakes things up a little, and Alan's dashing rescue mission might just give her something new to write about.

Gemini: The Heat

You may have already heard the stereotype about Geminis, which is that they are "two-faced" or "two-sided." This idea comes from the fact that the sign of Gemini — which represents those born between May 21 and June 20 – is symbolized by the twins. Those born under this sign are often described as extremely adaptable and versatile. Geminis love exchanging new ideas and learning new things, and they are always ready to entertain.

In "The Heat," Sandy B. plays one half of a dynamic and dysfunctional duo, along with Melissa McCarthy. The versatility and two-sidedness of this unlikely pair of friends brings a total Gemini energy to the film. "The Heat" follows New York FBI agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock), an extremely skilled and often uptight investigator, who has a reputation for being arrogant. Ashburn is assigned to work on a case in Boston, where she meets local detective Shannon Mullins (McCarthy), who is her polar opposite.

Mullins is a hot-headed loudmouth, who works based on gut instincts rather than detailed planning. Ashburn and Mullins immediately clash, but are forced to become reluctant partners and eventually, make a great team. Ashburn and Mullins are yin and yang — much like the two sides of a Gemini. While the Paul Feig-directed film is not quite as masterful as "Bridesmaids," Bullock and McCarthy's chemistry is what keeps it afloat.

Cancer: Practical Magic

One of the great Sandra Bullock films of the '90s, "Practical Magic" sees Bullock dipping her toes into the realm of fantasy. The film follows two sisters — Sally (Bullock) and Gillian (Nicole Kidman) — who were born into a family of witches. Raised by their kooky aunts (Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest), the sisters are outcasts in their small Massachusetts town. They also have a curse on them, which means they are doomed in matters of love. When Gillian's boyfriend (Goran Visnjic) dies under mysterious circumstances, the sisters use magic to cover his death up, and they try to rid themselves of the curse once and for all.

"Practical Magic" is as much a movie about family and tradition as it is about love and romance, which is why the sign that fits it the most is Cancer. Born between June 21 and July 22, Cancers are emotional, intuitive, nostalgic individuals. They tend to have strong imaginations and are very connected to all aspects of family and home. Loyal and sensitive, Cancers will do anything to protect their friends and family and are often the most nurturing out of all the signs.

For Gillian and Sally, family is everything, even though they try to reject their magical heritage at first. Sally will do anything to protect her kids and her sister, even if it means denying herself a chance at true happiness. But this is a heartwarming Hollywood movie, after all, so love does prevail in the end — a conclusion that will certainly make any lovey-dovey Cancers out there happy.

Leo: Miss Congeniality

Let's be clear: Gracie Hart, Sandra Bullock's character in "Miss Congeniality," is definitely not a Leo. If we had to guess, we'd say she's a Capricorn or maybe a Taurus. But while Bullock's Gracie Hart may not be a Leo, this movie certainly is. If you've never seen this absolute classic, "Miss Congeniality ” follows an FBI Agent (Bullock), who goes undercover as a Miss United States pageant contestant, despite lacking any sort of traditional feminine grace or charm that the beauty queen world demands. Despite her initial disdain for the pageant, Gracie comes to respect the other contestants for all the hard work they do, and she even saves the day in the end.

The sign of Leo — which represents those born between July 23 and August 22 – is associated with drama, luxury, and extravagance. Those born under this sign tend to be confident, entertaining, and are not afraid of standing out or making a statement. They strive to receive attention and respect from their peers, and often think of themselves as the kings and queens of their domain.

Though Gracie herself may not display these qualities, the high-octane world of pageants she enters certainly does. Pageants are all about showing off your charm and talents, which fits very well with the characteristics of a Leo. Of course, Leos aren't just self-centered and vain; they also have a great capacity for generosity and kindness, something Gracie learns as she gets to know the other pageant contestants better. After all, it's hard work being beauty, grace, and Miss United States.

Virgo: The Net

If you're a Virgo (or even if you're not) and you haven't yet seen this 1995 Sandra Bullock classic, the time to check it out is now. "The Net" follows a reclusive computer programmer named Angela Bennett (Bullock), who has recently started a new freelancing gig. Suddenly, all of her colleagues start dying, and it may or may not have to do with a mysterious floppy disk she was given by a coworker. Angela soon finds herself the target of a mysterious terrorist organization, who's intent on retrieving the disk and erasing Angela's digital identity in the process.

Angela is a rather unconventional action heroine, and her attributes align with those of a Virgo. Born between August 23 and September 23, Virgos tend to be analytical, practical, hardworking individuals, who lean towards perfectionism. They are always processing information and trying to solve problems, which is why they are great in fields like computer programming. Because they're so hardworking, they can be uptight and sometimes need to learn how to relax.

This is certainly true of Angela, who seems to have basically no life outside of work. She even orders her pizza on the internet, which actually was novel, exciting, and unusual in 1995. But when that floppy disk enters her life, everything changes. In order to survive, she has to push past her comfort zone and outwit the criminals that want to do her harm. Who knew the fate of the universe could be contained within a single floppy disk? Turns out, Virgo Angela does.

Libra: While You Were Sleeping

Born between September 23 and October 22, Libras are known either as the lovers or the diplomats of the zodiac, and they are symbolized by the scales. Those born under this sign tend to be cooperative and interested in justice and keeping the peace. They dislike conflict and mess, and they often see themselves reflected in other people. Ultimately, love and relationships are very important to them.

"While You Were Sleeping" is one of those romantic comedies where the plot is rather convoluted, but the performances are endearing enough that you can forgive the silliness. The film follows Lucy Eleanor Moderatz (Bullock), a lonely transit worker who has a secret crush on a commuter named Peter Callaghan (Peter Gallagher), whom she has never actually met. One day, he is pushed onto the tracks and Lucy is the one who rescues him. He falls into a coma, his family mistakenly thinks she is his fiancée, and she doesn't correct them. Lucy quickly becomes a part of the Gallagher family and is hesitant to tell them the truth, particularly as another development arises: She falls in love with Peter's brother, Jack (Bill Pullman).

Lucy exhibits many Libra-like characteristics, and despite the film's wacky premise, it eventually finds the balance Libras are known for. All Lucy wants in the world is to find love and people who care for her, and she finds this with the Gallaghers. She also doesn't want to create conflict within the family — another Libra trait — despite the potential harm the secret could have on them all. Does love prevail in the end? You'll just have to watch and find out.

Scorpio: Bird Box

The sign of Scorpio — which represents those born between October 23 and November 21 – is symbolized by the scorpion and is associated with the archetype of the alchemist. Those born under this sign are said to be cunning, magnetic, and very perceptive. Powerful and brave, Scorpios are very focused on achieving their goals and have a tendency to use manipulation to get what they want. Intense, mysterious, and even psychic, it's hard to know what a Scorpio is thinking.

2018's "Bird Box" was Sandra Bullock's first foray into the horror genre. The film takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, where much of the population has been decimated by mysterious demonic forces. These entities cause whoever sees them to see their worst fears personified, which causes them to go insane and kill themselves. Malorie (Bullock) and her two children have survived for five years among these creatures, and are on a journey to a safe location. In order to get there, however, they must keep their blindfolds on at all times, or they will die.

The demonic entities in "Bird Box" are mysterious, dangerous, and prey specifically on the psyche, which is why "Bird Box" aligns most closely with the sign of Scorpio. It's not simply that these entities kill you with violence, but even more terrifyingly, they use your own mind against you to bring about your demise. Luckily, Malorie is just as cunning and determined as these creatures, which is why she's able to survive for so long. If you're a Scorpio, maybe you would survive it too.

Sagittarius: Gravity

Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity" is a space movie where everything goes wrong. Sandra Bullock plays medical engineer Dr. Ryan Stone, who is on her first space mission in order to upgrade hardware on the Hubble. She is joined by veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (George Clooney), who is commanding the flight. Suddenly, disaster strikes when the shuttle is destroyed by space debris, and the pair are left stranded, with no communication to Earth. They realize that the only way to save themselves is to venture even further into space to reach the nearest space station.

"Gravity" aligns most closely with the sign of Sagittarius, which applies to those born between November 22 and December 21. Sagittarians are known as the travelers of the zodiac, and they are symbolized by the archer. Often associated with philosophy, Sagittarians tend to be individuals who are on a quest for knowledge and always itching to explore. Restless and spontaneous, they seek truth and self-improvement at any cost.

For Stone and Kowalski, this exploration obviously has dire consequences that neither of them could have expected. You have to be a little bit off your rocker to want to travel into space, and "Gravity" terrifyingly illustrates just how dangerous it can be. If you can't handle having your heart rate elevated a little bit, then maybe don't watch "Gravity." But if you live for the thrill, then this one's for you.

Capricorn: The Proposal

One of the most beloved rom-coms in Sandra Bullock's filmography, "The Proposal" is a classic Sandy vehicle. Bullock plays Margaret Tate, a high-powered publishing editor-in-chief, who is hated by everyone on her staff due to her prickly personality. When she learns she's about to be deported back to Canada, she convinces her assistant, Andrew (Ryan Reynolds), to marry her, so she can stay in the country. He agrees, but only on the condition that she fly back with him to Alaska to meet his nutty family, which includes his eccentric Gammy (Betty White). While the family is initially suspicious, Margaret and Andrew fall in love in the end — surprise!

Margaret displays many of the classic traits of a Capricorn, which is why "The Proposal" works best with this sign. Born between December 21 and January 19, Capricorns are the sign most associated with leadership. They are extremely motivated by duty and take their responsibilities very seriously. Because of this, they often take a while to warm up to others, and can sometimes come off as standoffish or unfriendly. Capricorns tend to repress any feelings they have that might get in the way of their success, and they are generally stoic people with a lot of self-control.

For Margaret, her stoicism and extreme devotion to work mean no one really gets to know the real her — until Andrew, that is. It's often said that Capricorns tend to age backward, becoming more youthful as they get older, and it's not until their trip to Alaska that Margaret finally decides to loosen up a little bit. Betty White tends to do that to a person.

Aquarius: Ocean's Eight

Aquarians — those born between January 20 and February 18 – are people who think outside the box. Known as the humanitarians of the zodiac, those born under this sign are progressive, original, independent thinkers, who prioritize personal freedom above all else. Because of their sometimes unconventional views and ideas, Aquarians tend to find themselves on the fringes of society, rather than at its center.

If there's one Sandra Bullock character who marches to the beat of her own drum, it's got to be Debbie Ocean in "Ocean's Eight." In actuality, all the characters in "Ocean's Eight" are pretty unconventional, which is why Aquarius is the perfect sign for this movie. In this spinoff of Steven Soderbergh's wildly popular "Ocean's Eleven" franchise, Bullock plays the sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean. Just like her brother, Debbie begins planning her next heist just moments after getting released from prison. She assembles a team of experts — which includes Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, and Rihanna, just to name a few — to get the job done.

You might not call Debbie a humanitarian in the standard sense of the word — she is stealing a diamond necklace, after all — but her big ideas make her a perfect candidate for the sign of Aquarius. Along with the rest of her diverse team of thieves and criminals (plus Anne Hathaway), Debbie isn't afraid to be a little different or go against the norms of society. And, if she breaks a few laws along the way ... we certainly won't tell.

Pisces: The Lake House

The Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, and, as such, they are said to encompass all that has come before. Born between February 19 and March 20, Pisces are known as dreamers, and they tend to be wrapped up in fantasy and romance. Intuitive, empathetic, and imaginative, they sometimes struggle to find a balance between fantasy and reality. Because they are so in touch with the mystical forces of the universe and the realm of emotions, they often lack boundaries and tend to be very selfless individuals.

The Sandra Bullock movie that best represents these qualities — mysticism, fantasy, romance, and the like — is "The Lake House," which also stars Bullock's "Speed" co-star Keanu Reeves. Bullock plays Kate Forster, a doctor who is moving out of the house she's been renting outside of Chicago. She leaves a note for the next tenant, and an architect, Alex Wyler (Reeves), finds it. The only problem is Kate is living in 2006 and Alex is living in 2004. They also somehow have a dog in common. What?

If you think about the plot for more than a few minutes, it will make your head explode. But if you're able to sit back and enjoy the fantastical absurdity of it all, it's an enjoyable ride. Clearly, there is some spatial-temporal boundary that has been broken here — very Piscean, no? — and it's up to Kate and Alex to find out if their love can overcome the time and space that literally separates them. If you're able to wrap your head around the plot — well, maybe you're a Pisces and will love this movie, after all.
