Aunt Jackie is kissing and telling!
Beginning in season one — several years before "ER" made him a star — Clooney, 57, had a recurring role as Booker Brooks, the foreman at the factory where Roseanne worked. For a short time, Booker and Aunt Jackie (Metcalf) dated.
When a caller asked about the best and worst parts of playing Clooney's girlfriend, Metcalf, 62, was ready to dish.
"Well, the best was all the scenes we got to do together that were alluding to us having a romantic relationship,” the Tony Award winner revealed. “That was the best, that was fun.”
And the worst? "The worst was when for some reason he didn’t come back after season one,” she joked. "Whatever happened to George?”
There's still time for Clooney to swing through Lanford again and win back Aunt Jackie's heart. The "Roseanne" revival will return for a second season next fall.
