Sandra Bullock has canceled her appearance at the London premiere of "The Blind Side" almost two weeks after winning a Best Actress Academy Award for her performance in the movie.
The 45-year-old actress says in a statement released by Warner Bros. UK that she can't attend the event for "unforeseen personal reasons." She goes on to apologize for canceling her commitment and to thank people for their support of the film. The London premiere is scheduled for Tuesday.
People magazine is reporting that the actress has moved out of the Southern California house she shares with husband Jesse James. The magazine says Bullock, 45, left on Monday, just days before a report of infidelity by James. A tattooed model named Michelle "Bombshell" McGee revealed details of their alleged liaisons to In Touch Weekly.
Bullock and James, 40, met in 2004 during a tour of the set of the Discovery Channel's "Monster Garage," which James starred in. The couple married a year later, in July 2005 in a sunset ceremony attended by 300 guests.
James was by Bullock's side all through the awards season, and she spoke lovingly of him backstage at the Oscars.
