Los Angeles, Nov 12 (IANS) Actor George Clooney only has words of praise for his friend and actress Sandra Bullock. He is happy that she has managed to stir up a buzz for an Oscar with her performance in "Gravity".

"Isn't she great," he said here at the AFI Film Festival premiere of "August: Osage County" here recently.

"I've known Sandy (Sandra) for - she doesn't want me to say - over 25 years," he added.

Clooney, 52, who is close to Bullock's three-and-a-half-year-old son Louis, has stood by Bullock since their struggling days. He has seen her through her tough days, including her divorce from husband Jesse James in 2010.

"She's a really dear friend. So watching how this year has gone for her - and she's had tough years before - has been great," he said.
