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.

Time again for Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week! Last week I thought Gaga looked pretty and Lindsay was trying too hard. Gavin Rossdale “won” my worst look.
Which looks do you guys think are the BEST, WORST, and WTF?

Sandra Bullock is one of those actresses (and human beings, I suppose) that’s so endearing, you can’t help but love her even if you don’t necessarily love all her movies. She does some pretty good movies, though – nothing mind-blowing, but at least really enjoyable. In any case, every time she does an interview, she just comes off as so down-to-earth and charming and I think she’s absolutely great.
From Entertainment Weekly:
“When people are like, ‘Life is good,’ I go, ‘No, life is a series of disastrous moments, painful moments, unexpected moments, and things that will break your heart,” she explained. “And in between those moments, that’s when you savor, savor, savor.’”
I know that’s a pretty basic statement, but I feel like especially for a public figure, it’s probably not necessarily encouraged to say things like “life is a series of disastrous moments”, but it can certainly be true at times, so good for her for not conforming to the happy-go-lucky stereotype of what she SHOULD be.
Sandra Bullock has been through some shit, so I can definitely see why she feels like this. I don’t for one second think she’s all doom and gloom, but I like that she can talk about the darker side of shit, too (and without making it seem like a sob story).

Sandra Bullock just doesn’t give a f-ck about dating, you guys. She’s made it clear she’s not planning to date Clooney any time soon. She also thinks everything happens for a reason, so she’s totally cool with chilling until she meets someone. Since all the media likes to do is ask women about their love lives (or lack thereof) here’s what Ms. Bullock told Entertainment Weekly who named her “entertainer of the year” (via People),
If [a relationship] should come along, great. But I feel like I’m not missing anything yet. Maybe one day I will. But my son is 3 years old, which is an amazing age. Four is an even better age. So if something happens, great, but if not, I’ve got plenty to do.
Like promote her biggest box office opening film of all time, and most likely accept some sweet award nominations.

Sandra Bullock is lovely and really sweet and one of the least offensive stars in Hollywood and I’ve been wanting to see Gravity for EVER (I need to hit up that IMAX – is it worth it?) so it sucks that she dealt with depression while shooting the film. The nature of the the whole “stuck in space” storyline meant she had to spend a fair bit of time in an isolation tank – we’re talking 8-10 hours some days – which really took a toll on her mental and emotional state.
From The View (via DS):
“I was depressed, I was angry, I would get so sad because it was a black room, no human contact, they took away sound.”
Bullock explained that director Alfonso Cuarón helped her through difficult periods by bringing her son Louis to her.
“What they did was, Alfonso could see, because he had cameras always on my face, he would be like, ‘She’s cracking, she’s cracking, go get the kid’.
“They’d created this whole wonderland just outside for Louis [to keep him occupied during filming], so [they brought him in].”
Aw, that’s sweet. We all know Louis is the cutest kid EVER, so I can see why that would cheer anyone up, to be honest. I can imagine that would be really depressing, though. Ahhh, I gotta see this movie!
