George Clooney has opened up about his bond with his Gravity co-star Sandra Bullock and revealed they’ve been close friends for more than 20 years because she used to date one of his best friends before they were famous.

Sandra Bullock (49) used to date one of George Clooney's best friends.

The Gravity actor has known his co-star for more than 20 years and recalls being "very excited" when she got her first big break in 1993 as she was dating one of his best pals at the time.

The 52-year-old star told at the New York premiere of the space drama on Tuesday night, "Sandy is the best. We've been really close friends for a long, long time. She likes to say 20 years, but it's been a little longer than that. So just the idea that I got to work with her was a blast.

"She was dating one of my best friends, a dear friend of mine for a long time. I got to know her long before any of us had succeeded. When she hit it big in the Sylvester Stallone movie [Demolition Man] ? that was her big break in the film world, and we were all very excited for her."

The renowned bachelor also opened up about his bond with Sandra's son, Louis (3), whom she adopted in 2010 and recently said enjoys "man time" with George.

He said, "Louis and I played basketball together [on the set of Gravity]. There was [director] Alfonso [Cuarón] and Rande Gerber, and Louis would gravitate towards me and the guys and hang with us.

"It was fun, but I wish Sandy would stop telling the story because it's totally ruining my reputation!"
