Movie stars didn't expect any singer to allow them to hop in the back seat for the TV skit.

Julia Roberts and George Clooney were stunned when Gwen Stefani allowed them to ride along with her and TV personality James Corden for one of his carpool karaoke segments.

Julia thought it would be a giggle if she and George jumped into a vehicle as Corden and one of his musical guests were driving around Los Angeles, singing along to the car CD, but the Pretty Woman star admits she never imagined anyone would agree to share a ride with two movie stars.

"It was amazing that she allowed us to encroach upon (that)," the actress told Extra.

George added, "We talked to them (TV show producers) about doing something with James and they sort of mentioned, 'Why don't you guys do carpool karaoke?', and we were like, 'Because we are terrible singers!'.

"I said, 'If you can find a singer (who will have us), maybe we'll jump in the back of the car...', and shockingly Gwen said yes. I think most of them (Corden's guests) would have said no... If I was, like, Adele, for instance, I would be like, 'Ha ha ha, no, that's never gonna happen!'"

The odd foursome sang along to Gwen's hit Hollaback Girl and Queen's We Are The Champions in the segment, which aired last week (04May16).

Meanwhile, George and Julia are currently at the Cannes Film Festival in France, promoting their new movie Money Monster, and Julia admitted she has never been to the European movie event before.

"I was never here," she told the U.S. news outlet. "I was waiting for just the right moment. It's really thrilling."
