George Clooney was visibly shocked when he learned about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce during an interview on CNN. The actor was leaving an United Nations conference with President Barack Obama about the refugee crisis when a reporter asked him for his reaction to the news.

"What happened?" Clooney asked, and when the reporter informed him about the divorce, he looked taken aback. "I didn't know that."

"I feel very sorry then. That's a sad story and unfortunate for a family," Clooney said. "It's an unfortunate story about a family. I feel very sorry to hear that."

Afterward, he left hand-in-hand with wife Amal Alamuddin Clooney, who also took part in the conference and spoke last Friday at the U.N. about her client, ISIS human trafficking survivor Nadia Murad.

Clooney and Pitt have been friends and pranking foes since they co-starred in 2001's "Ocean's Eleven." Clooney joked earlier this year about "working on a prank that will end his career."
