Sandra Bullock had a nice chat with former co-stars Bradley Cooper and Tom Hanks when the stars arrived at the 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival over the weekend, and it looked like the 49-year-old actress was having a blast.
While she may seem like the most confident gal in the room, when she gave her acceptance speech for Best Actress for her role in Gravity, she admitted that she has her insecurities, especially when it comes to what's online.
“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,” she said. “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.”
Bullock continued, “[There were] lots and lots of comments about who I’ve dated. Some are true and some I’ll never admit to ... Some commenters thought I had good hair and good teeth. I was reminded I made out with Meryl Streep. Off-screen, not necessarily her choice. I kind of took her by surprise. And I made some young girls and some over 40 girls laugh with some chick flicks. I sparred with Betty White and I’ve flown into space. I’ve had a pretty good life and a pretty good career.”
Ha! We're glad she has such a good sense of humor about it!
