Sandra Bullock decided to Google herself and learned the hard way rule #1 of the internet: never read the comments. But she did, she read comments about herself and she’s got a good attitude about it. She talked about her trip into Google in her acceptance speech for actress of the year at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Via People:
So, I Googled myself and read the comments section, thinking I could get some tidbits of what people really think of me. No human being should ever read the comments sections or ever Google one’s self at any time.
Some things I was very well aware of. ‘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.[There were] lots and lots of comments about who I’ve dated. Some are true and some I’ll never admit to.
I was reminded I made out with Meryl Streep. Off-screen, not necessarily her choice. I kind of took her by surprise.
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.
Unleash your thoughts about Sandra Bullock in this comments section. Don’t worry, she’ll never read it.
