Sandra Bullock can still rap 'Rapper's Delight'

UK talk show host Jonathan Ross has a knack for getting celebrities to show off their special skills.

He's gotten Ian McKellen to own up to his side job as an officiant, and Gwyneth Paltrow confessed that she can "eat any man under the table."

And when it came to America's Sweetheart Sandra Bullock, Ross got her to offer a "Rapper's Delight."


The actress admitted on Ross' show that she initially learned the lyrics to the hip-hop classic to impress a guy in high school.

"I was like, next time I go to that dance, I'm going to know every word," the 49-year-old said. "I'm going to make sure he sees me lip-syncing it, and I'm going to catch his eye and I'm going to say the words, and he's going to like me. And the sad thing is, it worked."

Ross, of course, wanted her to prove how much she remembered, and gave the "Gravity" star the option to rhyme a capella.

Sandy B. - which should be her rap name, obviously - wouldn't stand for it.

"If I'm going to humiliate myself, I need some beats," she joked. "Give me some beats, yo!"

Ross also got her to do this with Tom Hanks in an homage to "Big":

    Look Darlin', float around in your underwear, and you can sing anything you want to me. Even rap...

    And for the record, I always thought "Big" should have been re-made as an adult flick starring PeeWee Herman and Harry Reems...
