Sandra Bullock’s Longtime Partner Bryan Randall Dead at 57 After Private 3-Year Battle with ALS

Sandra Bullock’s Longtime Partner Bryan Randall Dead at 57 After Private 3-Year Battle with ALS

Sandra Bullock’s longtime partner Bryan Randall died over the weekend, his family revealed in a statement to PEOPLE on Monday. He was 57.

“It is with great sadness that we share that on Aug. 5, Bryan Randall passed away peacefully after a three-year battle with ALS,” his family shared. “Bryan chose early to keep his journey with ALS private and those of us who cared for him did our best to honor his request.”

“We are immensely grateful to the tireless doctors who navigated the landscape of this illness with us and to the astounding nurses who became our roommates, often sacrificing their own families to be with ours,” his family added.

“At this time we ask for privacy to grieve and to come to terms with the impossibility of saying goodbye to Bryan,” the statement concluded, signed, “His Loving Family.”

Bullock, 59, first met Randall, a model-turned-photographer, when he photographed her son Louis’s birthday in January 2015. They took their relationship more public later that year, including an appearance at Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s wedding.

Bullock, who is mother to her son Louis, 13, and daughter Laila, 10, addressed the topic of marriage during a December 2021 appearance on Red Table Talk.

“I found the love of my life. We share two beautiful children— three children, [Randall’s] older daughter. It’s the best thing ever,” Bullock said at the time.

“I don’t wanna say do it like I do it, but I don’t need a paper to be a devoted partner and devoted mother,” she said, adding, “I don’t need to be told to be ever present in the hardest of times. I don’t need to be told to weather a storm with a good man.”

Earlier in the same Red Table Talk episode, Bullock said that Randall is a great “example” to her children.

“He’s the example that I would want my children to have,” the Bird Box star said. “I have a partner who’s very Christian and there are two different ways of looking at things. I don’t always agree with him, and he doesn’t always agree with me. But he is an example even when I don’t agree with him.”

“I’m stubborn but sometimes I need to sit back and listen and go, ‘You’re saying it differently but we mean exactly the same thing,’ ” she said during the appearance. “It’s hard to co-parent because I just want to do it myself.”

In lieu of flowers, Randall’s family asks for donations to be made to the ALS Association and the Massachusetts General Hospital.

Report: Sandra Bullock Is ‘Incredibly Upset’ Over Arrest Of Ex Jesse James’ Son

Report: Sandra Bullock Is ‘Incredibly Upset’ Over Arrest Of Ex Jesse James’ Son

News of the recent arrest of the son of Jesse James has reportedly left his ex-wife Sandra Bullock feeling unnerved.

According to a report from RadarOnline, Bullock — who was married to the former “Monster Garage” star for five years — was “blindsided” by the arrest of James’ son

Jesse Eli James Jr. was sentenced to two days in jail earlier this year after pleading no contest to charges he assaulted ex-girlfriend Lucee Peterson. He was subsequently arrested for violating a protective order that Peterson was awarded by a judge.

“Sandra is incredibly upset someone she cared for and raised as a mother could be capable of harming another woman,” an unnamed “source close to the 57-year-old Oscar winner” told the outlet.

Bullock divorced James in 2010 after his extramarital affair with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee was exposed in the tabloids, resulting in numerous other women coming forward to claim he had also had sex with them during the course of his five-year marriage to Bullock.

Bullock’s Main Priority Is ‘Being a Great Mom’ to Her Kids: Quality Time Makes Her ‘Truly Happy’

Bullock’s Main Priority Is ‘Being a Great Mom’ to Her Kids: Quality Time Makes Her ‘Truly Happy’

After decades in the spotlight making blockbuster films, Sandra Bullock is happiest at home with her two children.

“Sandra hates being away from them for days or weeks at a time,” an insider exclusively explains in the new issue of Us Weekly. “The only real challenge she has in front of her is being a great mom, and to her, that requires being away from Hollywood. The one resource she can’t just write a check and buy is quality time with her kids, and that’s the thing that makes her truly happy.”

The Lost City star, 57, made headlines earlier this year when she announced her intentions to take an acting hiatus.

“I take my job very seriously when I’m at work. … And I just want to be 24/7 with my babies and my family. That’s where I’m gonna be for a while,” Bullock — who adopted son Louis, 12, and daughter Laila, 10, in 2010 and 2015, respectively — told Entertainment Tonight in March, noting that she plans to “service [their] every need” and manage their “social calendars.”

The Virginia native — who coparents her two children with boyfriend Bryan Randall — has frequently gushed about her kids and her parenting styles through the years.

“When I finished [making Bird Box], I said [to them], ‘Here, Mommy made this for you. And even though you can’t see it until you’re 21 because apparently, a movie about being a mommy is a horror film, you will know when you see it that there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you,’” Bullock said at the MTV Movie & TV Awards in June 2019. “I wanted you to see what a family looks like. Sometimes you are born into a family and sometimes you need to go find it. Sometimes it finds you. No matter how it comes together, when it does, family is what you fight for, family is what you protect.”

She continued at the time: “You are my first thought in the morning. You are my last thought at night. I was put on this Earth to protect you. You are my world. I love you so much, and I will move mountains to make sure that you are safe.”

As Louis and Laila get older, it’s become increasingly important for the Hope Floats actress to spend this “special” time with them, according to a second insider.

‘Bullet Train’ Moves A Week Later This Summer

‘Bullet Train’ Moves A Week Later This Summer

The Brad Pitt original action movie, Bullet Train, is moving from July 29 to Aug. 5.

Exhibitors got a look at the David Leitch directed movie’s opening montage at CinemaCon last month.

The movie based on the Kôtarô Isaka novel Maria Beetle follows trained assassin Ladybug (Pitt) who wants to give up his career, but is pulled back in by his handler Maria Beetle in order to collect a briefcase on a bullet train heading from Tokyo to Kyoto. Once onboard, he and other rival assassins learn that their objectives are connected.

Previously, Bullet Train moved into Black Adam‘s old date. However, now it’s facing off against Paramount’s Owen Wilson comedy Secret Headquarters and Universal’s Jo Koy family comedy Easter Sunday.

Why the move? We hear Sony is positioning Bullet Train as the last big event film of the summer in that first August weekend slot.

Leitch’s Fast & Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw debuted in that frame to $60M back in August 2019 and legged out to $174M stateside.

Bullock to Take a Break From Acting “for a While”

Bullock to Take a Break From Acting “for a While”

Sandra Bullock says she knew when filming her upcoming movie that it would be the last time fans will be seeing her on camera for a while.

“I can be creative, I can be part of a community, but right now, work in front of the camera needs to take a pause,” the Lost City star says in an interview set to air on CBS Sunday Morning.

In a teaser for the sitdown, which will air in full on Sunday, Bullock tells Tracy Smith that she doesn’t know how long her break from acting will be — defining it only as, “until I don’t feel like I feel now when I’m in front of a camera” — but that she knows she wants to focus on her family for the time being.

She elaborates, “I want to be at home. So I’m not doing anyone any favors who’s investing in a project if I’m saying, ‘I just want to be at home.’ … Because I was always running, I was always running to the next thing. I just want to be present and responsible for one thing.”

Bullock, who is mom to son Louis, 12, and daughter Laila, 10, said she knew while filming The Lost City, which hits theaters March 25, that this would be her last film “for a while.” Bullock also elaborated on her decision to Entertainment Tonight, saying, “I take my job very seriously when I’m at work. It’s 24/7 and I just want to be 24/7 with my babies and my family.”

Still to come, Bullock has a cameo in Brad Pitt’s Bullet Train coming out in July, which was originally set for an April release. That film wrapped production in early spring of 2021.

In Lost City, Bullock stars opposite Channing Tatum in a romantic comedy that The Hollywood Reporter‘s John DeFore called an “enjoyable throwback” in his review. Pitt, in a cameo, Daniel Radcliffe, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Oscar Nuñez, Patti Harrison and Bowen Yang also star.

Bullock had closed out 2021 starring in the Netflix movie The Unforgivable, which followed the success of her 2018 Netflix apocalyptic-thriller Bird Box.
