Oscar-winning actress, Sandra Bullock has put a for rent sign on one of the two multi-million dollar condos she owns at the lavish, celebrity-filled Sierra Towers.
Forbes has listed Miss Congeniality’s net worth at an estimated $200 million and WEHO TIMES’ publisher Marco Colantonio recalls a young (Sandy) Sandra Bullock along with actress, Jennifer Coolidge working for him as cocktail servers in 1987 at Canastels Restaurant in New York City.
The long since shuttered, Canastel’s was owned by current Tao Restaurant Group, founder and partner Mark Packer.
Back then, Sandra Bullock was struggling to make it, doing Stand-up at Caroline’s Comedy Club on Broadway and waiting tables at Canastel’s where Colantonio was the manager.
Mark Packer didn’t think Sandra Bullock was pretty enough to work in the cocktail lounge on Saturday nights at Canastel’s, Colantonio says. I remember Mark saying “only the hottest girls work the cocktail lounge on Saturday night and Sandy’s not hot.”
Who’s got the last laugh now?
The super-luxe complex borders between West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, Calif., available and is listed as a fully furnished rental at a “deep-pocketed rate of $22,000 per month” as reported by Variety.
“The Oscar-winning “Blind Side” star, who will appear in next year’s all-female spy heist “Ocean’s 8,” purchased the high-floor unit in early 2014 for $3.35 million. Perfectly positioned in the southeast corner of the building with unobstructed, bird’s eye views that on a clear day sweep over Los Angeles from the downtown skyline to the Pacific Ocean, the 1,672-square-foot, two bedroom and three-bathroom aerie was once owned by “Friends” star Matthew Perry who picked it up in the fall of 2011 for $3.2 million and sold it at an eye-popping $350,000 loss, not counting carrying costs, improvement expenses and real estate fees, in the spring of 2005 for $2.85 million.”
