According to The Huffington Post on Monday, Sandra Bullock participated in rapping on the set of her latest movie, in which we showed off her skills to Johnathan Ross by performing Rapper's Delight.
During a recent appearance on "The Jonathan Ross Show" to promote her new film Gravity the 49-year-old actress admitted that she originally learned the lyrics to the Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" to impress a boy in high school.
"I was like, 'Next time I go to that dance, I'm going to know every word. I'm going to make sure he sees me lip-syncing it, and I'm going to catch his eye, and say the words. And he's going to like me. And sadly it worked."
Host Jonathan Ross then asked if she'd do a little demonstration. Bullock agreed -- on one condition. "I need some beats," she joked. "Gimme some beats, yo."
She gave her own, in-studio rendition of the song, and when she did, even HuffPo said she's better than Gwyneth Paltrow.
Gravity, Alfonso Cuarón’s heady outer-space thriller is proving a phenomenon in its second week, dropping just 21 percent from its opening weekend and rocketing past the $100 million mark on Saturday to a stellar $123.4 came in just 10 days. It’s the smallest second-week decline for a film that debuted to more than $55 million. A whopping 84 percent of the yield comes from 3-D showings and 20 percent from I-MAX.
