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.”
I upgraded the gallery with over 160 HQ images of Sandra last night at the Palm Springs Awards Gala. She looked gorgeous wearing an Alex Perry dress and Brian Atwood shoes, and you’ll find some adorable pictures of her at the after party with co-stars Tom Hanks (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close) and Bradley Cooper (All About Steve). Sandy accept the Desert Palm Achievement Award – Actress for her work in Gravity, being introduced by lovely Gena Rowlands, her co-star in Hope Floats. Enjoy!
Sandy is featured on February ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ UK issue, among other Academy Awards winners/nominees. On the article, they’re talking about how The Oscars are a popularity contest.
I have added digital scans into the gallery, with the full article – which has a pretty new photo of Sandy.
And here’s the first look of Sandy looking amazing on the red carpet of 25th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala, that’s taking place in Los Angeles. Come back later for pictures!
