Oscar winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are known mischief-makers, but this time George got Sandy. He got her good.
On "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" Friday, Bullock recounted a story about how the two were at a dinner party when he tricked her into jumping in a pool alone.
"I went to the bathroom and came out and there was George and someone else with just their pants on going, 'We're gonna go in the pool,' and I was like, 'Really?' " she recalled.
Bullock wanted to join in on the fun.
"And so I held their hands and on the count of three, and in slow motion I see Nicole Kidman with a stack of towels ... and I jump, and they let go, and I go in the pool."
"The sad part was I wore this cute little lace dress that I paid a lot of money for and as I got out it started disintegrating," said Bullock.
Sandra Bullock Recalls George Clooney's Pool Prank:
The two megastars — now co-starring in the buzzy space drama "Gravity" — have been friends since the '80s. "We're now starting to take the years off how long it's been," the 49-year-old actress joked.
So why haven't they ever dated?
"It's because we're a little too similar,” said Bullock, “…in all the disturbing ways."
"Gravity," starring two old friends, lifts off in theaters Friday, October 4.
