Actress Ellen Barkin stunned guests at a tribute to George Clooney by claiming she has had sex with the movie star.
Barkin, who is currently filming Ocean's Thirteen with Clooney, claims the saucy remark was a joke but it has further fuelled rumors of romance on the film's set.
The New York Daily News reports Barkin, who recently divorced billionaire Ron Perelman, told partygoers at the American Cinematheque Award ceremony last Friday, "Yes, I have f**ked George Clooney.
"I'm very proud of it actually. If you don't have chemistry with George Clooney, you need to check your pulse."
A spokeswoman for the actress plays down her comments, insisting the actress "was just goofing around. It was a roast. She was being funny."
