2005: SANDRA BULLOCK WALKS DOWN THE AISLE

On June 16, 2005, America's sweetheart tied the knot with biker bad boy Jesse James in a surprise ceremony on her 41st birthday. "She was gorgeous. He was beautiful. They were very happy," Bullock's sister Gesine Bullock-Prado told PEOPLE. "It was nice for it all to finally happen." Unfortunately, the couple divorced in 2010 after James had multiple affairs. Still, Bullock did find happiness with a new man: her son, Louis, whom she adopted in 2010.
