We weren't the only ones caught off guard by news of the Brangelina split.

Brad Pitt's Ocean's co-star and friend, George Clooney, appeared genuinely surprised to hear that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce at the UN General Assembly.

"All right, don't shoot me on this last question," CNN's Richard Roth began. "It's a big story. You're friends with both of them. Your thoughts? Any thoughts? She's a humanitarian..."

"What's that?" a puzzled Clooney asked.

"Angelina and your friend, Brad," Roth clarified.

"Oh, what happened?" Clooney questioned, and then Roth dropped the bomb. "They're divorcing."
