NEW ORLEANS – An Oscar-winning actress surprised high school seniors at their graduation on Monday and ended up stealing a bit of the spotlight.

Instead of talking about her accomplishments, Sandra Bullock gave sound advice in an inspirational speech.

She began the speech by saying, “I didn’t remember anything because I was so worried about the future that I wasn’t present.”

Bullock told graduates to stop worrying, raise the bar higher and dance a little before leaving the house.

She also said the simple lessons she tries to teach her son are the same that are true for everyone.
