Julia Roberts Tells Ellen DeGeneres How She Really Feels About George Clooney’s Engagement

Clooney's Mom Approves
Actor's mother Nina says Amal Alamuddin is 'lovely.'
They’ve been friends for years, and A-list actors Julia Roberts and George Clooney certainly would have made a helluva Hollywood power couple. Alas, twas not meant to be.

Julia appears on today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show and Ellen asks the Pretty Woman how she feels about Clooney’s recent engagement to British lawyer Amal Alamuddin.

Roberts, 46, whose latest film The Normal Heart premieres on HBO May 25th, told Ellen that although she’s never met Amal, “She is beautiful and smart and he is happy, and that’s what matters to me.”

Check out the clip above, and just for fun, here’s a look back at George and Julia interviewing each other for Oprah Winfrey’s Oscar special in 2007.
