George Clooney’s longtime friend and co-star Julia Roberts is very happy that Hollywood’s onetime perennial bachelor is planning a trip down the aisle.

“I think it is sublime,” Julia said of George’s engagement to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday.

Julia has not met George’s 36-year-old bride-to-be, but she appears to be a big fan.
