George Clooney tells W magazine that he didn’t know what prostitutes were until he cruised around in a Porsche with his cousin, actor Miguel Ferrer, when he first moved to California: “I didn’t know what hookers were. We pulled up at the stoplight, and all of these girls came over, and they were like, ‘Hey, do you want to party?’ I looked at Miguel and I said, ‘Chicks love me, man! I’m on fire here!’”
Following are other comments from George Clooney and Renée Zellweger’s interview found in the December issue of W:
ON BACKING BARACK OBAMA IN THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION… “I spoke to him two days ago for a half hour. I think that he’s in that sort of doldrums, that midelection run, where you’re still trying to define what it is that you want to be.”
ON BORROWING SHOTS FROM DIRECTORS HE ADMIRES… “I sent apology letters to Mike Nichols and Sidney Lumet after Confessions because I just directly stole shots. But then I told Joel and Ethan that I’ve stolen shots from them, and they’re like, ‘Yeah, we stole that shot from Capra.’”
ON REWRITNG THE SCRIPT OF LEATHERHEADS TO ACCOMMODATE HIS AGE … “You can’t try to hide your age and you can’t try to pretend it isn’t there. You have to use it as a tool.”
ON ZELLWEGER’S ROLE IN THE UPOMING FILM LEATHERHEADS… “In movies, so often the guy gets to be the one with all the answers. In this one, she’s the smart one. Which was incredible acting on her part.”
ON DIRECTING ZELLWEGER IN LEATHERHEADS… “She’s my friend, so I can be really direct. I can say, ‘That’s not a good angle,’ and not try to manipulate her, saying, ‘Well, maybe you’d be looking off over there because the moon is shining.’”
ON ENCOURAGING GAWKER READERS TO POST FAKE SIGHTINGS OF HIM… “They had 6,000 locations for me in the first day.”
ON WORKING WITH MASTER DIRECTORS LIKE JOEL AND ETHAN COEN AND STEVEN SODERBERGH… “[They] taught me everything I know. If you plan it out and work really hard, then it’s much easier to make films.”
ON HER FEAR OF LETTING CLOONEY DOWN IN LEATHERHEADS… “…He doesn’t even know how important his opinion has been to me over the years. I don’t want to disappoint him.”
ON CLOONEY’S DIRECTION IN LEATHERHEADS… “I just get so proud that my head pops off. George is such a confident director, and he has no idea. And he’s a nice person. It gets boring hearing that, but it’s true. Every once in a while you get the real good guy. You’ve got your Jimmy Stewart. You’ve got your Paul Newman. Now you’ve got your George Clooney.”
ON GAWKER ENCOURAGING READERS TO POST STARS’ PRECISE WHEREABOUTS… “Oh, I log on every day to see where George is. Oh my God, get your things! He’s at Barneys!…The problem with that is with his schedule these days, the sightings were all true. He was in all 6,000 places that morning—before lunch.”
Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck and their little girl, Violet, are so doggone adorable together that you could just eat them right up like they were a hot fudge sundae with whipped cream, a cherry and tons of sprinkles on top.
This celebrity couple definitely doesn’t fit the typical Hollywood prototype. Are Ben and Jen out carousing in the clubs night after night a la Britney and Kevin? Nope. Getting their home busted into by police with battering rams like Amy Winehouse and her hubby? Uh uh. Turning all freaky and morbid-to-peer-at like Tom Cruise and his apparent Stepford wife, Katie Holmes? Sorry, it just aint happenin’.
If there was ever a Hollywood marriage destined to survive for the long haul, my money’s on this one. Jen and Ben seem so solid in the way that they care for each other in their marriage that it should inspire the rest of us. They both love that daughter of theirs so much that you can just tell from looking at them that they are, in fact, a real family.
Now Jen’s planning to host a talk show just for mothers. The news is so sweet to my ears that it practically puts me into a happiness-induced coma. Who but this wonderful celebrity mother could host such a show?
