Sandra Bullock on the red carpet

Sandra Bullock made the mistake of Googling herself


Sandra Bullock has admitted to making a massive life mistake: she Googled herself.

The 49-year-old actress made the admission as she accepted her actress of the year award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival's opening night on Saturday

'So, I Googled myself and read the comments section, thinking I could get some tidbits of what people really think of me,' Sandra said.

'No human being should ever read the comments sections or ever Google one's self at any time.' Oh, Sandra. It's a rookie mistake.

Showing her sense of humour, for which she is renowned, The Gravity star revealed some of the discoveries she made about herself online.

'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.'

The actress finished by turning to Julia Roberts, who was also at the event, to say: 'And apparently Julia… 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.'

All this just makes us love Sandra even more…
