Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock recreate classic scene (VIDEO)

Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock may be two of the biggest stars in Hollywood, but they’re still big kids at heart.

The pair recreated an iconic moment from Tom’s 1988 family movie Big, where his character played Chopsticks on a giant keyboard in FAO Schwarz toy store, on The Jonathan Ross Show this week.

Sandra managed to play the song in her high heels – but couldn’t stretch her legs far enough to play the last chord.

“I’m not doing that last one,” she said with a laugh.

Earlier in the show, the Gravity star also showed off her hip-hop prowess, singing the 1979 classic Rapper’s Delight by The Sugarhill Gang, which she learned in order to impress a boy.

“The sad part is, I learned the words because I liked this guy in high school,” Sandra revealed. “And I was like, ‘Next time I go to that dance, I’m gonna know every word. And I’m going to make sure he sees me lip-syncing it, and I’m gonna catch his eye, and I’m gonna say the words. And he’s gonna like me,” she joked.
