Renee Zellweger “has no talent,” according to close buddy and Leatherheads co-star George Clooney.

“You know what the problem is? She has no talent. And she’s not cute,” the perennial jokester quips to “And it was very hard for me to work with her.”

Not that hard. Getting serious, the Oscar-winning hunk says Renee is exactly the opposite. “She’s smart. She can do anything. She can deliver a punch line with the best of them. And she’s one of the sweetest, nicest people on earth. And she’s a dear friend.”

Renee can’t help but say the same for George, 46, who also directed the 1920s football romantic comedy.

“Just as you'd expect, he's funny and witty,” she tells

But George still knows when it’s time to get down to work, getting “very focused” on set when it was time to yell “Action!”

“He has the process of a filmmaker, who's much more seasoned than he is, like someone who's been doing this for 35 years, not five,” the 38-year-old actress says.

And how about that smooch between the two in the film?

"That's the one thing I can't remember," George says.

Leatherheads opens Friday.
