TMZ is reporting that there has been buzz that George Clooney and Julia Roberts are feuding after Roberts did not agree to reprise her role as Clooney’s wife, Tess, in the upcoming film, Ocean’s Thirteen. As a producer in the franchise, Clooney has more at stake than just reading lines and looking handsome, so the word is that Clooney felt betrayed that his close friend would abandon the project. However, there is other speculation that director Soderbergh wanted to go in another direction and called Julia’s departure “a script issue.”
