George Clooney gushes about pal, Sandra Bullock: 'She's had tough years'
At the AFI Film Festival premiere of "August: Osage County" in Los Angeles on Friday, the film's executive producer, George Clooney, happily chatted with People about his buddy, Sandra Bullock. "Isn't she great?" he asked with a smile. "I've known Sandy for – she doesn't want me to say – over 25 years. She's a really dear friend. So watching how this year has gone for her – and she's had tough years before – has been great."
The reporter asked for some insight as to how Bullock manages a successful acting career with being a mom to her 4-year-old son, Louis. "I don't balance motherhood. I got a kid here, a drink here," Clooney joked before getting serious. "She does it all. She's a great mom."
