Watch Sandra Bullock Urge High School Graduates Not to Pick Their Noses

May 20, 2014

Sandra Bullock took a few minutes out of her busy life as an Oscar-winning actress to surprise the graduates of New Orlean's Warren Easton charter school Monday. Bullock had donated to the school after it was damaged during Hurricane Katrina, so she's long been a supporter. She addressed the 200 graduates with an uncomplicated but insightful speech, offering lots of practical advice ranging from "don't pick your nose in public" to "when someone who cares about you hugs you, hug them back with two arms" to "go find your joy."
