Rebel Wilson showed off a bit of her rapping skills on Tuesday's Live! With Kelly and Michael with a rendition of Kris Kross' 1992 hit "Jump."

The Pitch Perfect 2 star spit a few bars from the version of the song she performed as a child with her sister, which included a female-empowering call-and-response to "Woman up, Rebel!"


She also noted that she has some very famous Pitch Perfect fans -- including Brad Pitt, who told her of his family's fandom during a table read for the Sacha Baron Cohen starrer Grimsby (from which Pitt eventually dropped out due to commitments to other projects).

"He's like, 'Uh, I've seen your movie like 20 times. My kids love it. Angelina [Jolie] watches it as well,'" she said he told her. "I couldn't even believe he was talking to me, let alone seen me do comedy."

So how did she thank him for the compliment? "I just kind of hugged him, and for a really long, extended time, to the point where he's kind of moving back," she confessed. "But when do you get that opportunity?"
