SANDRA BULLOCK thinks JULIA ROBERTS owes her many thanks - for "breaking in" the PRETTY WOMAN (1990)'s boyfriend BENJAMIN BRATT!
Beautiful Bullock filmed hit movie MISS CONGENIALITY (2000) with Bratt last year (00) - and the sexy actress claims credit for "fluffing" up the actor in preparation for his trips to go see Roberts on breaks from filming.
Sandra says, "I broke him in for her. I's because of me that he's such a great man. I kind of felt like his fluffer! "I got him all loved-up during the week, then he'd leave on the weekend and go see her!" (ES/H/CPT)
