George Clooney’s longtime friend and Oceans co-star, Julia Roberts, expressed her excitement over his engagement to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week.
“I think it is sublime,” Roberts told DeGeneres about the engagement. She admitted she hasn’t met her yet, but called “her beautiful and smart.”
“He is happy. That’s what matters to me,” continued The Normal Heart star.
When DeGeneres showed a particularly unflattering photo of the Oscar winner with Clooney as they were discussing the news, they laughed that she looked like she was “in the middle of a road and a car is coming,” Daily News reports.
Roberts laughed, “That’s the best picture you could find of me and George? There’s only 10 million photographs of us together.”
Clooney and Alamuddin were first spotted together in October 2013 and he reportedly proposed at his home after they enjoyed a home-cooked meal. He was married previously to Talia Balsam, which ended in divorce in 1993.
