Lauren Sanchez is well-known for being the ex-girlfriend of NFL Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez and the current girlfriend of billionaire entrepreneur Jeff Bezos. However, she has followed a successful career path of her own.

Sanchez has been featured on Fox’s “Good Day L.A.” for many years and has also landed several acting roles in which she plays a news reporter. The films “Fight Club,” “Fantastic Four,” “White House Down,” “The Longest Yard,” and “Ted 2” all include her.
Sanchez’s wealth comes from more than just her employment as a newscaster and actress; she is also a qualified helicopter pilot who, in 2016, started her own aerial cinematography firm called Black Ops Aviation. Productions for both the big and small screen are the company’s specialty.
Sanchez said to “The Hollywood Reporter” in a 2017 article, “This space is dominated by guys.” However, piloting a helicopter does not require any actual physical exertion on the pilot’s part. You could be as short as 5 feet 1 inches or as tall as 6 feet 4 inches. More women should definitely be involved in this.
Her three kids are all taking flying lessons now that she’s a mom. Sanchez inherited his love of aviation from his father, a flight teacher, and his mother, a licensed pilot. Both of his parents raised him in Albuquerque.
