Speaking about his old friend, Clooney joked that Sandra did not want him to reveal that they are old friends. “Isn’t she great? I’ve known Sandy for — she doesn’t want me to say — over 25 years,” said Clooney, 52, at the AFI Film Festival premiere of August: Osage County in Los Angeles.
Apparently, Clooney bonded well with Bullock’s three-year-old son, Louis, when they were shooting the space disaster drama. Talking about his association with her, he says, “She’s a really dear friend. So watching how this year has gone for her — and she’s had tough years before — has been great.”
