Why Sandra Bullock and George Clooney Never Dated

"I think we’re probably the only two that haven’t dated in the business," Sandra Bullock said of her Gravity costar, George Clooney, to Jay Leno Friday.

"I think it’s because we’re a little too similar…in all the disturbing ways," Bullock finally hinted. We can only imagine what that means.
