George Clooney was reportedly tickled to hear that he's the reason Julia Roberts and Benjamin Bratt have split up.
"I didn't have time," the eligible bachelor tells the New York Daily News, "I was too busy breaking up Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's marriage."
Taking the Blame, Again
It does seem that the former ER doc's name pops up frequently in stories of splits. The 40-year-old hunk's rep was adamant in denying his client's involvement in the breakup of Cruise and Kidman, telling Mr. Showbiz in February that rumors linking Clooney and the soon-to-be-ex-Mrs. Cruise were "too ridiculous," since the Peacemaker co-stars hadn't seen each other in two years.
Clooney is said to currently be vacationing with his other Ocean's Eleven co-star, Brad Pitt and his wife, Jennifer Aniston, in England. (Brace yourself for the inevitable Clooney-Aniston rumors).
Meanwhile, insiders are offering different reasons why Julia and Ben really did break up, and the choices range from her Runaway Bride-ish lack of commitment to their diverging careers and different home cities of San Francisco (Bratt) and New York (Julia).
