Is there nothing Sandra Bullock can't do? She can go from dowdy to fabulous, chase down bad guys, and now, we find out that she can also bust a rhyme.

The 49-year-old actress appeared on "The Jonathan Ross Show" recently, where she revealed that she knows all the words to "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang. She claimed that she learned them in high school in order to impress a boy:

"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'...And sadly, it worked."

Bullock then went on to perform part of the song, kicking in a little heart towards the end of the verse. She (perhaps wisely) chose to stop after that verse, no doubt aware of the fact that what she was doing was going to wind up on YouTube.
