Sandra Bullock Shows Off Her Rapping Skills On British TV

Sandra Bullock showed off her rapping skills during a trip to Britain to promote new film "Gravity".
During an appearance on "The Jonathan Ross Show", the actress revealed that she and co-star George Clooney would often find themselves trying to make fun of director Alfonso Cuaron's Spanish accent, but when that didn't work out, they would goof off by breaking out the Sugarhill Gang's classic hit, "Rapper's Delight".
"We were either making fun of our director... who's a wonderful man from Mexico and we attempted the accent but it turned out a little Cuban... or we would rap off to an old rap song we both new from high school," she said.
Bullock said she learned the lyrics when the song first came out in an attempt to woo a boy at school before Ross persuaded her to sing part of the song.
The actress was joined by fellow A-lister Tom Hanks, who was in town to promote his own new film, "Captain Phillips". Ross surprised Hanks with a replica of the giant foot piano he played in 1988 movie "Big", and the two attempted to perform a little bit of "Chopsticks" before Ross called Bullock out to help.
The actress would only go so far, though, as she had on a very short skirt and when the keys were too far apart, she said, "I'm not doing that last part."
