It's not news that Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock can act, but she surprised fans on Saturday by showing them she can rap, too.

Bullock, 49, performed a bit of the 1979 hip hop classic "Rapper's Delight" by The Sugarhill Gang on The Jonathan Ross Show after explaining that she learned the lyrics as a teenager in order to impress a boy in school.

"I learned the words because I liked this guy in high school, and I was like, 'Next time I go to that dance, I'm going to know every word, and I'll make sure he sees me lip-syncing it, and I'm going to catch his eye, and I'm gonna say the words, and he's going to like me.' " Bullock said. "And sadly, it worked."



Bullock added that she and George Clooney practiced the song together during their downtime on the set of Gravity.

The actress has been giving fans insight into her longtime friendship with Clooney, revealing that her son, Louis, requests man-time with Clooney, that the star once played a prank that ruined her dress, and the reason the two of them never dated is because they are "too similar."
