According to recent sources, Amal Alamuddin, or should we say Amal Clooney – she has changed her name, after all – is allegedly insecure about actress Sandra Bullock‘s relationship with her husband George Clooney.
Even though Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock has never actually been romantically linked to Hollywood silver fox George Clooney (despite rumours of a brief fling during filming of Gravity), the pair are famously close and have been friends for over 20 years, something new bride Amal Alamuddin is reportedly uncomfortable with.
Despite getting the notorious bachelor to settle down, sources claim Amal still isn’t happy with the alleged flirting between George and his pal Sandra, especially after a friend of Sandra apparently told Naughty Gossip: “Sandy really likes George. All her friends know that he was the one but for some reason it never happened. After a few drinks all she does is talk about him, but now he is married she has far too much respect to mess with that.”
While there is no there is no proof that this source is real, George did once admit that he gets calls from his long-term friend when she is drunk. He said: “She may say that she’s not all that attracted to me, but she calls every night, three in the morning, drunk, ‘Hey, George, what are you doing?'”
However, when quizzed about a budding romance, Sandra has always denied having strong feelings for the 53-year-old. “We’ve known each other for so long, sexy is gone,” she once said. “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.”
Yet, according to the National Enquirer, when hearing of George’s engagement to Amal, Sandra said: “That could’ve been me.”
George, who is believed to be a reliable male figure in the life of Sandra’s adoptive son Louis – following her divorce to Jesse James – claims he has never dated the former flame of Ryan Gosling because of “bro code”. “She was dating one of my best friends,” he said. “There’s a certain bro code, you know what I mean? I’ve known her a long, long time.”
As big fans of Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney we can’t help but think, and hope, the rumours are just that – Hollywood tabloid fodder. Even if Sandra and George do make a fab couple, she’s no home-wrecker and he is no cheater. I guess we just have to watch this space…
