Laurie Metcalf might be missing George Clooney just a wee bit.
When asked about "the best and worst part of having George Clooney as a lover on Roseanne," the 62-year-old actress didn't hold back during her appearance on Thursday's Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen's After Show.
"Well, the best was the season we got to do together, alluding to us having a romantic relationship," she shared of her season 1 experience with the heartthrob actor. "It was the best, that was fun."
As for the not-so-great aspect of having Clooney as an onscreen love interest, Metcalf says it was always only going to be temporary.
"And the worst, the worst was when for some reason he didn't come back after season 1," the Roseanne star confessed. "Whatever happened to George?"
The 57-year-old Ocean's Eleven star first appeared on the hit '90s sitcom back in 1988 as Booker Brooks, a foreman at the factory where Roseanne worked, who also dated Metcalf's character, Jackie.
