George Clooney owes Sandra Bullock a dress! And an expensive one at that.

Bullock recounted on Friday’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno a prank played on her by her longtime friend and Gravity costar that resulted in Bullock’s dress “disintegrating.”

Bullock explained that she and Clooney were at a dinner party when he tricked her into jumping in the pool – alone.

“I went to the bathroom and came out and there was George and someone else with just their pants on going, ‘We’re gonna go in the pool,’ and I was like, ‘Really?’ ” she told Leno. “And so I held their hands and on the count of three, and in slow motion I see Nicole Kidman with a stack of towels … and I jump, and they let go, and I go in the pool.”

“Oh, you were the only one in the pool?” Leno asked.

“Yeah. But the sad part was I wore this cute little lace dress that I paid a lot of money for, and as I got out, it started disintegrating.”

Bullock also told Leno why she’s never dated the famous prankster.
