Sandra Bullock On Meeting George Clooney For First Time: He Played Matchmaker

Sandra Bullock and George
Clooney have been friends for decades – hitting it off from the moment they
first met.

At the “Our Brand Is
Crisis” Los Angeles premiere on Monday night, the Oscar-winning beauty
recounted to Access Hollywood how she first met her friend and “Crisis” producer.

“It was just pretty
funny… he was drunk,” Sandra told Access guest correspondent Scott Evans
on the red carpet, laughing. “I know, shocker – the man owns a tequila
company. Anyhow, he was doing Buddy Hackett impressions at a friend of ours’
house.”

Sandra was with who she
“would have liked to” have had as her
“boyfriend at the time,” a friend of George’s – and George 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,'” she said. “George is not gonna
marry anybody except for Amal. He was waiting 30 years to do that.

“But that was sort of
the thing that sort of got him to just hang with me, the boyfriend,” she
added. “So we were together for four years after that, thanks to
George.”
