While Hollywood sweetheart Sandra Bullock may not have loved flying, her true fear set in after a traumatic plane experience she had about a decade ago. In 2002, Bullock was aboard a corporate jet ready for take-off in Wyoming. As it gathered speed, the jet skidded off the runway, and both the wings and nose of the plane were damaged. Her fear persisted for nearly a decade, until an exciting movie role forced her to either face her fear or give up on a part she was in love with. What role? Gravity.
