Veteran movie tough guy Nick Nolte claims all of Hollywood knows JULIA ROBERTS isn't "nice" - and so isn't surprised she labelled him "a disgusting human being".

The pair fell out after starring together in 1994's I LOVE TROUBLE, and it seems there is still no love lost between them.

Nick, 62, says, "It's not nice to call someone 'disgusting'. But she's not a nice person. Everyone knows that.

"Does something like that hurt? Maybe. But it's not important to me whether I'm liked or disliked. Some people like me. Some don't. Some people I like working with, some I don't."
