Playing FLASHBACK: Sandra Bullock Was Charming as Ever in 1989

In honor of ET’s 35th anniversary this year, we’re flashing back, taking a look at the first time our favorite stars sat down for an interview.

FLASHBACK: Sandra Bullock Dreaded 'Miss Congeniality' Swimsuit Scene

Before The Blind Side, Miss Congeniality, or even Hope Floats, Sandra Bullock was starring in The Bionic Showdown, a TV movie reboot of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman.

It was April 1989, but Sandra had the same self-deprecating humor and funny adorable personality we still love today.

"I make a lot of mistakes," the actress joked to ET. "And I'm never embarrassed about it."

Bullock played The Bionic Woman in the reboot, showing off her ass-kicking ability, despite the retro effects.

"I think people can relate to it a lot more because they're bringing the human side," she told ET of the TV movie. "You know, I can fall down a flight of stairs. I can say something stupid... as we've seen on this interview."

But could she pull of the Six Million Dollar Man’s signature slo-mo run?

"I don't know," Bullock laughed. "Can we move some of this stuff out? I'll show ya."
