Had the same issue. Next It will start doing the same thing with your PS3 games. Your blue-ray/lazer is going out it will quit working soon. Alot of PS3 have bad lazers in them. I replaced mine works great now.

Looks like your Blu-Ray lens is dirty or dead. Try getting a laser lens cleaner and running it through your PS3 a few times. If this doesn't fix the problem, you will need to contact PlayStation and having it repaired.

160gb ps3 won't play games or bluray discs

Your PS3 may not be freezing entirely. Look in the top right hand corner of the screen, if the loading sphere is there you've nothing to worry about, and I would reccomend just waiting it out (it unfreezes). If it is not there it is a legitimate freeze and would reccomend sending it off and/or updating the system firmware.

Screen freezes playing Blue Ray discs only.

I answer this question like ten times a day so don't feel bad.

The blu-ray laser in your PS3 is a three part laser (cd / dvd / blu-ray). They last only 1-3 years with average use. It's a Sony defect.
