Almost a year ago, in June of 2022, Oscar winner Sandra Bullock announced she was taking a long and restful break from acting. But, just like any of us, taking a break from your biggest focus in life might shift everything else along with it. Unfortunately for Bullock, who credited her step back to feeling “burnt out” and wanting to spend time with her kids, the break reportedly put her relationship with Bryan Randall “on the rocks.”

As revealed by Us Weekly, Bullock and Randall, who have been together since 2015, hit a rough patch in the fall of last year that led to Randall moving out of their home and for them to take a break from their relationship.

Regarding a reason, sources revealed they struggled because of their differing views on marriage. “It’s widely known Bryan wanted to make things official with Sandra, but she didn’t see a need to go down that path. It became quite an issue as time went on,” an insider told Us Weekly at the time. The Blind Side star was previously married to TV personality Jesse James for almost five years before their marriage imploded due to cheating allegations.

“[Bullock] didn’t need a piece of paper to plan a future and be happy, but [Randall] felt differently,” the source added.

Then, earlier this year, the two reconnected and have been working on getting their relationship back on track. “Sandra and Bryan have always enjoyed their own personal space and can live in separate places for weeks at a time,” a source told the outlet at the time. “But [last year] they were going through some major problems and friends thought they weren’t going to make it.”

Their reconciliation, however, hasn’t been as smooth as they hoped. “The feeling is Sandra might be hoping for some type of miracle — that they’ll work things out after this long cooling-off period,” a source said.

According to the insider, the chances of them fully reconciling is “a long shot” despite them doing “better” after the break being “good for them.” “The romantic spark seems to be gone,” the source added, hinting that their connection might be beyond repair.

Regardless if their relationship is beyond repair or just a work in progress, we’re rooting for them to be happy at the end of it. After all, no one deserves it more than our forever Miss Congeniality!
