However, not everyone heard the heartbreaking news, including pal George Clooney.
On the same exact day, Amal Clooney's husband was at the United Nations when he was asked by CNN about the split. Anchor Richard Roth said:
"Alright, don't shoot me on this last question but you're friends with both of them. Any thoughts?"
Confused, the Michael Clayton star replied:
"What's that? What's happened?"
That's when Richard dropped the bomb! Stunned, Clooney said:
"I didn't know that. I feel very sorry then. That's a sad story and unfortunate for a family… It's an unfortunate story about a family. I feel very sorry to hear that. That's the first I've heard of it."
The 55-year-old looked extremely surprised and genuinely saddened by the news. We wonder how the breakup will affect his friendship with both thespians!
