Sandra Bullock is putting the kibosh on tabloid suggestions that George Clooney might be making the moves on her.

British tabloid The Sun published a photo of the pair from the Venice premiere of their new film “Gravity,” saying that Clooney was “making eyes” at his co-star.

Bullock told The Associated Press on Thursday “he was not making eyes. Maybe cross-eyes, but that is about the extent of his goggle eyes.” Besides, she added, each has enough “dirt” on the other to command “a level of respect and understanding. I adore George.”

Clooney said in a comment released by Warner Brothers that he and Bullock have known each other before either had success in films “so there is no pretense. We are just friends.”
