Who was Bryan Randall? Inside the life of Sandra Bullock’s late boyfriend

Sandra Bullock’s longtime partner, Bryan Randall, died “peacefully” on Aug. 5, 2023, at the age of 57 following a “three-year battle with ALS,” his family told Page Six in a statement.

“Bryan chose early to keep his journey with ALS private, and those of us who cared for him did our best to honor his request,” they said.

“We are immensely grateful to the tireless doctors who navigated the landscape of this illness with us and to the astounding nurses who became our roommates, often sacrificing their own families to be with ours,” the family continued, asking for “privacy to grieve and to come to terms with the impossibility of saying goodbye to Bryan.”

Much like how he handled his health struggles, Randall lived a relatively private life. Here is everything we know about the A-list actress’ late boyfriend of eight years:
