New bestie alert!

George Clooney recently introduced his wife Amal Clooney, 37, to Julia Roberts, 47, for the first time while the two Oscar winners were shooting Money Monster.

"We've been really good friends for a really long time and I just adore her," Clooney said of his Ocean's Eleven franchise co-star at the Disneyland premiere of his new sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland (in theaters May 22). "She and Amal and I went out to dinner the other night. It was so much fun to have her meet my wife and have both of them be such good friends and hit it off so well."

Clooney stars in the Jodie Foster-directed Money Monster as a television finance guru who is blamed by one man (Unbroken's Jack O'Connell) for losing all his money because of a bad tip. Roberts plays Clooney's TV producer.

As I previously reported, Clooney raved about his seven-month marriage. "It's fun," he said. "It's really fun."

The two married in September in Italy.

"I couldn't be happier right now," said Clooney, who turned 54 last week. "I wake up in the morning and I think, 'This couldn't be better.'"

The couple brought their niece Mia Alamuddin (she was the flower girl at their wedding) to the Tomorrowland premiere. After posing for photos together, Clooney kissed Amal on the hand before she headed into the theater and he continued to do interviews on the blue carpet before the screening.
