We may be getting ahead of ourselves, but perhaps George Clooney won’t feel so left out from his married Ocean’s 13 co-stars for very much longer.

As Brad Pitt and Matt Damon discuss newborns on the set of the film, Clooney has reportedly developed a “close relationship” with co-star Ellen Barkin.

According to The London Mirror, this year’s Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actor has been supporting Barken, 52, through a recent divorce. The actress has just ended her marriage with billionaire Ron Perelman.

So she’s got money!

But Clooney is no Heather Mills. It’s safe to assume he’d be in this relationship for matters of the heart, not the wallet.

A source at the newspaper said: “George has been a shoulder to cry on for Ellen – he’s helping her get over the divorce.

“She fancies him like mad and you can cut the sexual chemistry on set with a knife. He is so different from her ex husband, which she loves.”
