1. The Blind Side, sandra bullock
When Sandra Bullock announced to the world that she would be taking home an Oscar by her performance in The Blind Side, the story of Leigh Anne Tuohy would soon get the spotlight only Hollywood can provide.
Tuohy’s true story of taking in a homeless teen and changing his life is now the stuff of legend. Bullock’s Tuohy, like the real woman herself, is pure mom. She possesses the selfless love that is required of all moms and even goes the extra mile.
Bullock scores our top spot for Top 10 Movie Moms because her “character” of Leigh Anne Tuohy embodies all of the elements that make moms the key to the human race’s survival. She is empathetic, stern and no matter what, stands up for her kids — even if it means visiting the worst neighborhoods in Memphis while searching for her son.
The Blind Side was a massive hit and we at SheKnows Entertainment believe much of that had to do with the story resonating with audiences worldwide. Motherhood knows no borders, and as illustrated by Bullock’s take on Leigh Anne Tuohy, the world would be a better place if all moms modeled themselves after the Tennesseean.
