"Gravity" co-stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock have so much chemistry that the rest of the world is rooting for a romantic relationship to blossom, even if they're not.
Though we find it hard to believe, Bullock recently explained it's because she's just not attracted to the 52-year-old star, because after knowing each other for so long, "sexy is gone."
"Not that he's not sexy because he is very, very handsome. If you like that kind of dashing, charming, smart, talented, successful kind of thing. It's not everyone's cup of tea," she told U.K. morning TV show Daybreak.
As it turns out, even Clooney finds her explanation a bit hard to swallow. At Saturday (Nov. 9) night's 2013 BAFTA Britannia Awards in Los Angeles, the actor revealed just how fond of him Bullock really is.
"Let me tell you about Sandy. Yeah, she may say that she's not all that attracted to me. But she calls every night at three in the morning drunk," Clooney joked to "Entertainment Tonight." "'Hey George, what are you doin'?' Nonstop. And then I just send her a bottle of tequila."
The pair certainly seem to have a good friendship, but they've also come up with a lot of reasons for never getting romantically involved. While the 49-year-old actress recently told Jay Leno they never dated because "we’re a little too similar, in all the disturbing ways," Clooney told E! News the actress used to date one of his best friends.
"There's a certain bro code, you know what I mean?" he said.
