10 Things You Didn’t Know About George Clooney And Julia Roberts’ Friendship
8. Took Care of Julia When she was Pregnant
When Julia starred in Ocean’s Eleven with Clooney, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt it was constant pranks. One time Clooney put a bucket of water over Julia’s doorway so that when she’d open it, she’d get drenched. He didn’t get her though — it landed on a bellman instead! However it was a different story when she was pregnant during the filming of Ocean’s Twelve. “At George’s house, I remember walking down this path pregnant with Phinn and Hazel and turning the corner, and all the boys were sitting at the table having lunch. They were like, ‘Oh, come sit down.’ I wasn’t allowed to walk the stairs. It was such a sweet shift in our relationships because originally, it was all pranks and teasing each other. And here I am pregnant, so it’s like pulling out my chair and just making sure I have enough water and, ‘Are you feeling OK? You look a little peaked.’ ‘I’m fine,'” she said to Allure.
7. Adore Each Other
At the Disneyland premiere of his film Tomorrowland, Clooney gushed about his bestie to People. “We’ve been really good friends for a really long time and I just adore her.” Then again in 2013, these two had nothing but nice things to say about one another while at the BAFTA Britannia Awards where Roberts presented Clooney with the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Film. When he accepted his award, Clooney said to Roberts, “It has been such a pleasure to watch the woman you have become. It’s very hard for me to be just straight nice because she’ll get me later. But [she is] just an amazing mother, an amazing wife and a great, great friend. It’s really an honor to have her here.”
