Sandra Bullock, 49, is no different than the rest of us. She googled herself.

"So, I Googled myself and read the comments section, thinking I could get some tidbits of what people really think of me," Bullock said at the Palm Springs International Film Festival's opening night on Saturday when accepting her actress of the year award for the film Gravity. "No human being should ever read the comments sections or ever Google one's self at any time."

Bullock read some of the comments she came across to the audience, "There's nothing special about her acting, she's not particularly attractive, I can't stand her, she's mediocre, she's over 40," she joked.

The star shared more on her google self-discovery adventure.

"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.' 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 actress, who was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for her Gravity performance, learned what's really important through her internet exploration.

"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."

Bullock has never been shy of poking fun at herself or having a little fun. She pulled off a very cute performance with Tom Hanks on The Jonathan Ross Show.

Bullock's love life has always been a fodder for gossip and speculation.

"[There were] lots and lots of comments about who I've dated. Some are true and some I'll never admit to," she said.

She reminded the audience of her infamous "kiss" with Meryl Streep.

"I was reminded I made out with Meryl Streep," Bullock said. "Off-screen, not necessarily her choice. I kind of took her by surprise."
