"I didn't know where to go and all of a sudden I hear, 'Hey' and I turned and [George's] beautiful face was right there and it was very heart warming," Julianna told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush backstage the 2010 Golden Globes in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Sunday.
"Well, beautiful furry face," Billy noted, referring to the beard her former "ER" co-star was sporting.
"He could have a plastic bag over his head and be beautiful," she said. "We both kissed each other. He was happy for me."
But the actress noted the kiss wasn't the same kind her husband Keith Lieberthal gets.
"I kiss my husband on the lips," Julianna explained. "I kiss George on the cheek."
