Can't get a date? According to Sandra Bullock, Hollywood's silver fox George Clooney is the guy to grab for a little help in the blatant signals department. Not a huge shocker...who could say no to that face?
The pair have been friends for donkey's years and, at the Our Brand Is Crisis premiere in L.A. earlier this week, Bullock reminisced about a time many moons ago when Clooney helped her bag a boyfriend.
Talking to Access Hollywood, she laughed:
"It was just pretty funny… he was drunk. I know, shocker – the man owns a tequila company. Anyhow, he was doing Buddy Hackett impressions at a friend of ours' house."
The story goes, Sandra was with a guy who she "would have liked to" have been her "boyfriend at the time." He was a friend of George's and thus swooney Clooney became the perfect wingman.
"When I came out after I spent time with George, George went to him and said, 'If you don't marry her, I will.'
"But that was sort of the thing that sort of got him to just hang with me, the boyfriend. So we were together for four years after that, thanks to George."
What a smooth move!
Obviously the Gravity actress has moved on, and is now dating Bryan Randall, but four years isn't a bad stint!
Our Brand Is Crisis hits theaters Friday. Check out the trailer, starring a very blonde Sanda Bullock, below.
