POP babe Ri­hanna and Os­car win­ner San­dra Bul­lock have bonded over their shared love for sausage.

The A-list stars worked to­gether on new block­buster Ocean’s 8.

And they be­came close pals af­ter nip­ping off to munch on hot dogs be­tween film­ing scenes.

Ri­hanna, 30, said: “I love cheese­burg­ers, I love hot dogs, I love pizza and they were such long days when we were film­ing that we had to keep our en­ergy up!

“My­self and San­dra found this place that served the best hot dogs. We def­i­nitely bonded over hot dogs.”

Ri­hanna has only ap­peared in a hand­ful of films so she was thrilled to learn from San­dra, 53.

She added: “San­dra is one of the great­est ac­tresses ever, so I was like a sponge around her, learn­ing all I could. And if I could do that over a chilli dog and sea­soned fries then even bet­ter.” Pro­duc­ers hired Ri­hanna for Ocean’s 8 af­ter seeing her in big­bud­get flicks in­clud­ing Bat­tle­ship and the 2014 re­make of An­nie.

In the heist film, fans will see her play­ing a tech ge­nius nick­named Nine Ball who acts as a hacker for a gang of thieves.

Ri­hanna said: “I am ob­vi­ously not a hacker, but there are parts of the real me in the char­ac­ter. She doesn’t care what peo­ple think about her, she is to­tally just be­ing her – and that’s the place I try to be.”

Ocean’s 8 is a spin-off from the Oceans tril­ogy which starred Ge­orge Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.

This time the main stars are all women – in­clud­ing He­lena Bon­ham Carter, Cate Blanchett and Anne Hath­away. There are also cameos from Ser­ena Wil­liams, Kim Kar­dashian and Meryl Streep. Ri­hanna said: “I wanted to learn off ev­ery­body. None of us want to make a big deal about it be­ing an all-fe­male cast.”
