At the Golden Globes Tina Fey joked that George Clooney would rather float off into space and die than spend time with a woman his own age, so Nancy O'Dell investigated whether there was any truth to the joke by talking to two actresses who know him well -- Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock.
"He talks to me a lot," said Bullock, who (at 49) is close in age to the 52-year-old movie star.
The Gravity star, who was nominated for a SAG Award in the category of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role, made a fake denial when O'Dell pointed out how much she laughed at the joke during the broadcast.
"I did not laugh," Bullock joked. "You don't laugh at jokes about your friends."
"Hilarious," Roberts, 46, said when asked for her feelings about the quip. "[It's] totally true," Roberts kidded. The August: Osage County star was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.
