Brad Pitt and George Clooney have been best friends since forever now. The former has been the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor’s wingman. He even reportedly played a huge role in Brad’s marriage with Jennifer Aniston. But is it all over? The reason reportedly is Julia Roberts. Below are all the details.
It all reportedly began with George’s wedding. He reportedly did not invite Brad Pitt because his wife Alam hates Angelina Jolie. This did not go very well with the actor. Furthermore, with things getting back to normalcy, both men want to come up with something huge. Their professional rivalry seemingly is turning a big nightmare in their friendship.
A source close to New Idea reveals it all as, “Both George Clooney and Brad Pitt and their respective production companies want to restart the industry with huge movies, and they will be competing with each other.”
The report continued, “It’s not going to help the fact that they have had a bit of a falling out over recent years. Brad Pitt and George Clooney used to be super close, but ever since George left Brad off his wedding guest list because [his wife] Amal hated Angelina Jolie, there’s been tension and more than a little rivalry.”
But where does Julia Roberts come into the picture? Apparently, both the BFFS want to cast the Notting Hill actress in their films.
“Both men want to do something steamy – a box-office guaranteeing thriller-romance – and neither will take no as an answer from Julia to play their leading woman.”
But what was Julia Robert’s reaction to it all? “At first, Julia was flattered to be so in demand by two of Hollywood’s biggest stars. But then it started to get a little weird. They’ve figured out they both want her for the same thing and it’s been a full court press on winning her over. There are constant phone calls, texts, invitations to cosy dinners-for-two, flowers. Julia feels like she’s being courted by a lover, not a potential colleague!,” continued the source.
The source continued that Julia Roberts’ husband Danny Moder is used to this kind of attention for his wife. However, he finds it ridiculous that Brad Pitt and George Clooney have come to this.
