Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock Fighting Over George Clooney Oscar Race Support?

“George Clooney is caught in the middle of a tug-of-war between two of Hollywood’s hottest leading ladies,” claims the National Enquirer.
Oh, what’s supposedly going on? The tabloid explains, “Longtime rivals Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock both want George to support them in their upcoming Academy Award campaigns — and neither woman wants to share the spotlight.”
According to the Enquirer, which recently (and wrongly) tried to link Clooney and Bullock in a romance, it doesn’t matter that Roberts and Bullock will likely be nominated in different categories. “Sources say [Roberts] has been pushing George hard to put in appearances with her instead of with Sandra,” claims the outlet that loves nothing more than dragging Roberts into a phony “catfight” with another actress. A so-called “insider” tells the Enquirer, “Julia is being pretty unfair because George has spent far more time with her than Sandra.”
Apparently, the possibility of a future Bullock-Clooney movie after their hit Gravity has Roberts “going green-eyed” with jealousy. In their alleged rivalry, the Enquirer source explains, “Sandra always won out because she didn’t have the salary demands that Julia had, and that’s really irked Julia. I don’t think George had any idea how deeply the bad feelings ran.” This is ridiculous.
The tabloids love a good fake controversy, especially between two famous women, and the idea that Clooney is in the middle of some Bullock-Roberts clash is simply not true. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the story is “preposterous.”
