Michael was sent to foster care when he was just seven years old.

His adoptive parents already have two children, and Michael and their children both attended Briarcrest, and Michael started living with them. 

That was the time when Leigh and Sean decided to adopt him.

He used to train really hard, and his family was always supportive of him.

Michael Was Disappointed With Movie The Blind Side

Michael was the main character in the movie The Blind Side. That movie is based on his life.

The movie showed the journey of the legendary American football player in a single part, and people loved the movie. 

The movie was a great success, but Michael was unhappy.

He instead was very disappointed with the movie because that movie failed to show his natural side. 

Michael revealed he was an extrovert, but he is shown as not so cheerful in the movie. 

Moreover, the whole story was inaccurate as what Michael had faced in his real life. 

The movie was made without consulting Michael and based on a biography.

Michael Was Forced To Write His Biography

Michael showed great dissatisfaction in his biography movie The Blind Side, released in 2009, as he was shown differently than his true self. 

Because of the movie, many fake facts about him and his character were around the media and among his fans. 

So he had to correct everything. Speaking to every media and telling his true story was not a great option. 

So he was forced to write his biography. 

He wrote everything that ever happened to him: how he lived, his difficulties, and how his life changed. 

He filled in all the missing parts of his life that were not shown in the movie and corrected all the facts about his life through his biography named I Beat The Odds.

Sandra Is A Big Fan Of Michael

Sandra Bullock played the role of Michael’s adopted mother in his biographical movie The Blind Side

She has appeared in many matches of Michael and brought her son with her wearing Michael’s jersey.

Although Michael hated the movie and its character portrayals, Sandra still is a great fan of Michael and his playing style. 

She never missed cheering the player and his team standing in the stadium.
