VIDEO: Sandra Bullock Advises Graduates 'Don't Pick Your Nose'
Actress Sandra Bullock served as the graduation speaker for Warren Easton Charter High School in New Orleans on Monday and offered some surprising advice for the senior class.
"Eat something green every day," she offered, noting that the advice she was giving them also applied to her 4-year-old son, Louis. "Do not pick your nose in public. ... How about we just go get a tissue? ... When someone who cares about you hugs you, hug them back with two arms. ... If someone doesn't want to play with you, it's OK. ... Not everybody is going to love us."
