Despite her warmth and sweetness, Sandra Bullock has never been in the habit of wearing her heart on her sleeve — until her current beau, Bryan Randall, entered her life.
Since going public as a duo last summer, the ultra-private Oscar winner and her photographer boyfriend have frequently been spotted doting on each other as they lovingly walk hand in hand around LA. “She hasn’t really had a true love like this in a long, long time,” confides a friend of the star.

Sandra’s unquestionably in love, but she treads cautiously on the subject of marriage. “I like to care for people,” said the 51-year-old actress, who adopted her son, Louis, 5, in 2010 and daughter, Laila, 3, just last year. Yet, she adds, “I’m not that selfless. I’m always hoping that someone will eventually take care of me since I take care of them.”
In her heart, Sandra is hoping that Bryan, 49, will be that man who will love and care for her for the rest of her life, but she needs more proof before she says “I do.” “Sandra is ready to shed her old life, but she is afraid,” explains the friend. “She wants something real and strong where she can finally let go.”
