NEW YORK (AP) -- Actress Julia Roberts says her breakup with actor Benjamin Bratt was anything but tumultuous.
"It's come to a kind and tenderhearted end," Roberts told talk show host David Letterman on Tuesday in what marked the first time she has spoken publicly about the split.
Roberts, 33, didn't go into why the two sweethearts, who dated for about four years, broke up, but had only kind words about her former leading man.
"OK, here's the thing: I love Benjamin. He's a good man, he's a fine man. He is, to the exultation of the female single population, not my man anymore."
In response to the rumors of George Clooney being the reason for the breakup, Roberts said she wasn't going out with the actor who starred in the television series "ER."
"A kind and lovely man, though not my boyfriend," Roberts said of Clooney. "I'm single."
