Sandra Bullock has admitted falling into the pitfall of 'Googling' herself with some very interesting results.

Accepting her actress of the year award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Bullock said: "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."

However she added that she learned "a lot about myself!"

Adding: "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."

The actress, who divorced ,husband Jesse James in 2010, added: "[There were] lots and lots of comments about who I've dated. Some are true and some I'll never admit to".

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

On a positive note: "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."
