Sandra Bullock is putting the kibosh on tabloid suggestions that George Clooney might be making the moves on her.
The Sun published a photo of the pair from the Venice Film Festival premiere of their new movie Gravity, saying that George was "making eyes" at his co-star.
Sandra said:: "He was not making eyes. Maybe cross-eyes, but that is about the extent of his goggle eyes."
Besides, she added, each has enough "dirt" on the other to command "a level of respect and understanding".
"I adore George," added the actress.
George said that he and Sandra have known each other before either had success in films "so there is no pretence. We are just friends".
