Sandra Bullock, Gravity
“It’s not just the feeling of what’s happening now, it’s also what the last two years have been like with the amazing experience of Gravity. All we cared about was that Alfonso [Cuaron] got recognized because this is his story, his journey, his life story. I feel like I have an embarrassment of riches and now something horrible is going to happen. [Laughs] But I want to not blow through this. I want to savor every moment, I want to enjoy it. I want to hang out with my fellow ladies like I have been when we see each other on these crazy press tours. I just don’t want to miss a thing, like Aerosmith said. Yes the circumstances were bizarre and difficult. You’re acting by yourself and are forced to dig deep to find emotions hanging from things and being in pain and twisted… but you also got to have this amazing, never-done-before experience. We didn’t think we were making a blockbuster – we thought we were making an art house film that happens to be in space, it’s existential, and it has these beautiful life metaphors. I’m sure the studio can tell you didn’t think in a million years this film would make a dime. But Alfonso stayed with his vision, he knew what he was making.” – Bullock

Sandra Bullock is no stranger to the Internet.
The Academy Award winner, 49, admitted she recently did a little search on the web that gave her a bit of insight.
“So, I Googled myself and read the comments section, thinking I could get some tidbits of what people really think of me,” Bullock said while accepting her actress of the year honor for the film Gravity at the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s opening night on Saturday. “No human being should ever read the comments sections or ever Google one’s self at any time.”
But the star, who said she learned “a lot about myself,” opened up about her discoveries – good and bad.
“Some things I was very well aware of,” she said. ” ‘Sandra Bullock is over 40’ came up a lot. I know that. ‘Sandra Bullock’s way past 40.’ Yeah, I know that, too … ‘There’s absolutely nothing special about her acting. She’s not particularly attractive, I can’t stand her, she’s mediocre. She’s over 40.’ And apparently Julia [Roberts] … You and I are in a dispute over George Clooney. We talked about this, right? It’s shared custody and we’re both fine with it.”
Going off of that, Bullock – who hasn’t publicly dated anyone since her divorce from cheating ex-husband Jesse James – also touched on relationship rumors.
“[There were] lots and lots of comments about who I’ve dated. Some are true and some I’ll never admit to,” she said.
One person she didn’t necessarily date, but revealed she had a moment – of sorts – with? A fellow awards season regular.
“I was reminded I made out with Meryl Streep,” Bullock revealed of her online dirt. “Off-screen, not necessarily her choice. I kind of took her by surprise.”
But behind all the jokes and silly revelations, the actress, most importantly, acknowledged: “Some commenters thought I had good hair and good teeth. And I made some young girls and some over 40 girls laugh with some chick flicks. I sparked with Betty White and I’ve flown into space. I’ve had a pretty good life and a pretty good career.”
