Even though Gravity has already debuted in the UK, Sandra Bullock has been out promoting the film in Tokyo this week. For the press conference, she wore her hair straight and loose with a centre parting framing her face. Then, she switched it up for the red carpet premiere, wearing an updo with curled layers in the front. For both looks, she kept her makeup soft with metallic shadows on her lids and a nude lip. She looked great for both appearances, but which of Sandra's styles do you like best?
The Hollywood Film Awards have become widely considered the unofficial start of award season, and with good reason. The annual ceremony, held in Beverly Hills, has a knack for shining an early spotlight on the movies and talents that tend to become top contenders for Golden Globes and Oscars. This year, Gravity's Sandra Bullock, Dallas Buyers Club star Matthew McConaughey, and 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen were just a few of the notable honorees.
Kanye West opened the show to present McQueen with his honor and apparently made a quick exit after he spoke; just after his appearance at the ceremony, he flew to San Francisco, where he proposed to Kim Kardashian in front of their friends and family on her 33rd birthday! Kanye wasn't the only surprise presenter of the evening. Robert Downey Jr. handed Jared Leto his breakthrough performance award for his role as the transgendered Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club, introducing Jared as "one of the most beautiful actresses of his generation."
Overall, the night was a lighthearted celebration; presenters and honorees took advantage of the untelevised ceremony to pepper their speeches with profanity and raunchy jokes. Matthew thanked his wife, Camila Alves, for telling him to "grab his sack and do it" when he was waffling on taking on a fourth film role in a year, while Sandra took the opportunity to harangue Harvey Weinstein for failing to hire her yet. "I wore your wife's dress," she said, referencing the Marchesa gown — designed by Harvey's wife, Georgina Chapman — she was in when she snagged her Oscar for The Blind Side. The audience was also treated to a solo performance by Coldplay's Chris Martin. He played the band's track "Atlas" from the upcoming Catching Fire soundtrack and had no shortage of Hunger Games-related jokes, insisting the movies are based on a true story and claiming he just tried to tap into "what those people went through" when he penned the ballad. Stay tuned for tomorrow's POPSUGAR Live! to catch our interviews with Sandra, Matthew, Harrison Ford, and more of the stars from this year's Hollywood Film Awards.
Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock stopped by The Jonathan Ross Show to promote their respective films Captain Phillips and Gravity, and the host convinced them to reenact one of Hanks's most famous movie scenes of all time. Revealing a giant hidden piano in the floor, Ross first played around on the board with Hanks before bringing Bullock (who also showed off her rapping skills) on board to help out with Hanks's iconic Big scene — in heels, no less. Gravity may have beaten Captain Phillips at the box office this weekend, but at least there's no bad blood between these Oscar winners!
Watch the video after the jump.
Sandra Bullock put her rapping skills on display on the UK's Jonathan Ross Show when she bust out a rendition of The Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" during an interview. According to Sandra, she first learned the lyrics to the song so she could impress a boy in high school. She said, "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." Sandra also later showed off another musical skill, dancing on a giant piano, when she played chopsticks during a Big piano scene reenactment with fellow talk show guest Tom Hanks.
Of course, Sandra isn't the only A-list actress who know how to rap — Gwyneth Paltrow famously showed off her skills when she sang NWA's "Straight Outta Compton" on a different British talk show, The Graham Norton Show, back in 2011. Watch Gwyneth get down with her bad self below.

Sandra Bullock stunned on the red carpet for the London Film Festival premiere of Gravity on Thursday. She put her legs on display in a short lace Stella McCartney dress and sky-high heels. It's been a busy few months for Sandra, who has been working hard to promote Gravity both before and after its release last week. She and costar George Clooney kicked off the press tour at the Venice Film Festival before Sandra went solo to screen the space drama at TIFF. George joined back up with his lovely lady for the NYC premiere, and despite the two being "too similar" to date (Sandra's words, not ours), they made a pretty awesome duo while hitting the talk show circuit together. Somewhere in between all of her work travels, Sandra was able to nab a Vogue cover and get honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It will be exciting to see where she pops up next!
George Clooney mixed seriousness with silliness when he was honored at USC Shoah Foundation Institute's 2013 Ambassadors For Humanity gala at the Museum of Natural History in NYC on Friday. George was on hand to receive the Ambassador For Humanity award, which was presented to him by Steven Spielberg, who founded the organization in 1994. The actor's Gravity costar and longtime friend Sandra Bullock also dropped by the bash, which was hosted by Jon Stewart. George appeared to be in high spirits at the bash, chatting with Sandra, Steven, Jon, and Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels. He also had a bit of fun photobombing Steven when he was taking pictures with Jessica and Jerry Seinfeld.
George and Sandra have had a busy week promoting their newest flick, which hits theaters today. The two joined up in the Big Apple yesterday to screen Gravity during a special luncheon. Sandra and Jon also had a good time poking fun at George when the actress dropped by The Daily Show With Jon Stewart on Wednesday. The host joked that he couldn't buy George as an "affable ladies' man" in the film, which Sandra jokingly agreed with.
Sandra Bullock and George Clooney have been all over the globe to promote their new, intense film, Gravity — this time showing up in NYC. The famous costars started their promotional tour by joking together at Comic-Con back in July, then kicked off the Venice International Film Festival in August. Then, Sandra single-handedly took Canada by storm when she swept through the Toronto International Film Festival. For tonight's premiere in New York, Sandra and George were joined by the ever fabulous Emma Watson and Katie Holmes.
Sandra seems to be everywhere at once these days. After her international domination, she stopped into Hollywood for her hand- and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre. And with her October cover of Vogue, she's even in print! For now, though, let's head over to NY and see the star-studded pics from the premiere.
Sandra Bullock opened up about her relationship with George Clooney when she sat down with Jay Leno for The Tonight Show on Friday. After Sandra said that she and her Gravity costar go way back, Jay asked whether the pair ever dated. "I think we're probably the only two that haven't dated in the business," she said and added, "I think it's probably because we're a little too similar." When Jay asked her how they're similar, Sandra joked, "In all the disturbing ways."
It's been a big month for the actress, who left her mark on Hollywood when she shared her hand- and footprints on the Walk of Fame outside the TCL Chinese Theatre on Wednesday. She's also the gorgeous cover star of Vogue's October issue, which hit newsstands on Sept. 24. In the interview with Vogue, she opened up about her little one, 3-year-old Louis, and how she's content right where she is: "We're all where we're supposed to be. I am exactly where I want to be now. You can't go backward. I'm not going backward. I'm grateful that I'm here, blessed to have what I have."
Sandra Bullock has officially left a permanent mark in Hollywood. In celebration of her latest film, Gravity, Sandra Bullock was given the opportunity to participate in the classic hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre this afternoon. Sandra showed off her hands after the ceremony, and then posed for pictures. Chelsea Handler and Octavia Spencer also showed up to the event in support.
On top of her glamorous cover on the October issue of Vogue, Sandra Bullock has been all over the world to promote her new film. Most notably, she kicked off the Venice International Film Festival alongside George Clooney, and the Toronto International Film Festival shortly thereafter. See the adorable pictures from today's ceremony.
Sandra Bullock looks elegant on the cover of Vogue's October issue, which hits newsstands nationwide on Sept. 24. Sandra sat down with the publication's Jason Gay to discuss her new film, Gravity, in which she stars opposite George Clooney, but she also opened up about life with her little one, 3-year-old son Louis, and acknowledged her divorce from Jesse James after their five-year marriage. Here is what we learned from Sandra's Vogue interview that confirms everything we love about her:
Her divorce has got nothing on her happiness:
"We're all where we're supposed to be. I am exactly where I want to be now. You can't go backward. I'm not going backward. I'm grateful that I'm here, blessed to have what I have. Nobody can be prepared for anything."
Nothing takes precedence over Louis in her life:
"I don't want him to have pressures brought on by what I do. I will quit. I will leave. If I see whatever I'm doing affecting him negatively, I will pack up and move to Alaska."
She is not opposed to expanding her family:
"If all of a sudden someone said, 'You have five more kids,' I'd be totally OK with it. I'm having such an amazing time."
