If Sandra Bullock has learned anything from her years in the spotlight, it’s this: don’t Google yourself. Ever.
The former Miss Congeniality shared this advice when she accepted an award for her performance in Gravity on Saturday at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, according to People.
“So, I Googled myself and read the comments section, thinking I could get some tidbits of what people really think of me,” Sandra admitted. “No human being should ever read the comments section or ever Google oneself at any time.”
Solid advice — although we have a feeling that if we were celebrities, we would be refreshing Google just about every five minutes to find out what people were saying about us. Who has that kind of self control?
“Some things I was very well aware of. ‘Sandra Bullock is over 40’ came up a lot. I know that,” Sandra, who is 49, said. “‘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.”
The people whose opinions matter, though? They’re totally on Sandra’s side. She was recently named Entertainment Weekly’s 2013 Entertainer of the Year, to which we reply a resounding “duh.” And besides, not everything she read on Google was negative.
“Some commenters thought I had good hair and good teeth,” The Heat actress added. “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.”
