A confused Clooney asked him to clarify.

"On Brad and Angelina", the reporter continued.

"Oh, what happened?" George asked.

"Divorce. She filed."

The visibly surprised George responded earnestly but suspiciously saying "that's a sad story then", clearly unsure if there was any truth to the news.

"That's... Wow. I feel very sorry, then," George stammered.

"That's a sad story. That's unfortunate for a family.That’s an unfortunate story about a family. I feel very sorry to hear that. It’s the first I’ve heard of it."

Brad and George became friends after filming the Ocean's Eleven films together, while George is friendly with Ange through their joint work with United Nations.

Fans are still recovering from the news Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt today.

She cited 'irreconcilable differences' and requested physical custody of the couple's six children.
