Julia Roberts has gushed over her good friend George Clooney’s new wife Amal.

The Academy Award-winning actress has been good friends with fellow A-lister George Clooney for several years, with the pair having starred alongside one another in 2001 release Ocean’s Eleven.

George tied the knot with 37-year-old international rights lawyer Amal in September 2014 and Julia couldn’t be happier for the couple.

“Oh yes, George doesn’t need my approval, but I’m quite enamoured with her,” the 47-year-old Erin Brockovich star gushed to Extra, noting she was impressed with Amal when they were first introduced. “We went out to dinner. I met her at dinner.”

George has been busy promoting his new sci-fi film Tomorrowland.

And during an appearance on Good Morning America, he couldn’t help but gush over life with Amal.

“Everything’s different now. Actually it is,” the 54-year-old said. “I was going to make a joke but it is actually. I couldn’t be happier. We’re having a really fun time. We’re working on fixing up a house in England that we’ll be spending a lot of time in just outside of London. And we’ve been sort of travelling the world.”

The home they are renovating is referred to as the Mill House, which is located on an island in the River Thames at Sonning Eye in England. It’s believed the couple purchased the property for £10 million.

The newlyweds attended the red carpet debut of George’s movie Tomorrowland last Saturday at AMC Downtown Disney 12 in Anaheim, California, a theatre that is part of the Disneyland Resort. The cute couple even brought Amal’s 13-year-old niece Mia along for the fun.

"I was here for the premiere of Captain Eo in 1985,” he told Entertainment Tonight of his last visit to the theme park. "[Amal was] here a few years ago with her niece and nephew.”
