As fans of the actors know, Julia Roberts and George Clooney have been friends for a very long time and have starred in plenty of movies together.

Just a few months after talking about kissing George Clooney in front of wife Amal on the set of their new rom-com Ticket to Paradise, Julia paid tribute to her BFF in a truly hilarious way that her own stylist posted about on Instagram.

This past weekend, Julia attended the 45th annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, DC, where George was an honoree, wearing a custom gown plastered with pictures of George's own face. We told you it was going to be funny!

The fitted black gown with a train is a custom creation by Moschino's creative director Jeremy Scott. In a picture that Julia's stylist Elizabeth Stewart posted, the 55-year-old actor is seen wearing it with a black cropped jacket with her hair down and very natural makeup. 

The best part of the photo? Julia's mischievous smile - clearly reveling in the hilarity of the outfit and the situation as a whole. Needless to say, we would have paid good money to see George's initial reaction to his friend's choice of outfit.

Julia, who recently warned that her new romcom with George will 'probably be terrible' in refreshingly honest interview, attended the star-studded event alongside her husband Daniel Moder. 

George also showed up with his spouse, Amal, to be honored alongside the likes of Amy Grant, Gldys Knight, U2 and Tania León for their contributions to American culture.

Fellow celebrities and fans alike took to Instagram to comment on Julia’s gown, which featured photos of the now 61-year-old George throughout the years - both solo and with her - all in gold frames.

“⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️,” commented actor Selma Blair.

Sense8 star Jamie Clayton echoed all of our sentiments when writing, "So good 🧡," as did Australian journalist Laura Brown, who commented, "Brillz!! 🏆"

Even Moschino chimed in with a simple, "❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️."

Julia and George have been having fun promoting their new film together in the past few months. In one interview, the two got candid about the on-camera kiss that took 80 takes and Julia even opened up about the sweet meaning behind her coded dress at London movie premiere

Despite folks' fascination with the duo's friendship, though, it is Julia's recent revelation that MLK actually paid for her birth in 1967 that sent her friends into a frenzy.

"My parents [Walter and Betty Lou Roberts] had a theater school in Atlanta called the Actors and Writers' Workshop," Julia said toGayle King during a A+E Networks and History Channel's HISTORYTalks live event in Washington, D.C., after noting that the host's "research is very good" and drawing a laugh from the audience.

"One day, Coretta Scott King called my mother and asked if her kids could be part of the school because they were having a hard time finding a pace that would accept her kids and my mom said sure come on over," she recalled. "They all became friends and helped us out of a jam [...] because my parents couldn't pay for the hospital."

Just as we thought Julia couldn't get more interesting!
