George Clooney is such a prankster! He and his super cool celeb friends got Sandra Bullock to jump into a pool with her clothes on. She thought they were all jumping in, but nope! Nicole Kidman didn’t fall for it. Or maybe she was in on it. She’s Nicole Kidman, she wasn’t jumping in any goddamn pools in her lovely gowns. She practically is Grace Kelly. And I love her. What the hell was I talking about?
Oh, right. Mr. Clooney’s prank. Here’s what Ms. Bullock said on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (via People):
I went to the bathroom and came out and there was George and someone else with just their pants on going, ‘We’re gonna go in the pool,’ and I was like, ‘Really?’ ” she told Leno. “And so I held their hands and on the count of three, and in slow motion I see Nicole Kidman with a stack of towels … and I jump, and they let go, and I go in the pool. [...] But the sad part was I wore this cute little lace dress that I paid a lot of money for, and as I got out, it started disintegrating.
Right, I’m sure you “paid a lot of money” for the dress. I’m sure it wasn’t given to you. I like that you’re trying to connect with the people, Sandra.
Never mind that it’s only August. Zimbio polled their readers and came up with the hottest 25 actors of 2013. Here’s who they are. Where do you stand? Do you agree or disagree? Number one was surprising to me, in the, “let pause and think, ‘…really?’” way. And can you guess who made the top 10 that also made the top 10 in the Ugliest Men list?
Admittedly, all you’d have to say is “space drama” and I’m there, so Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity already had me on its side. George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are the stars and they’re both inoffensive enough and can be pretty great in the right medium, so they’ve still got me on that. Now, a single take trailer has been released and I am SO on board (no pun intended). I’m seriously about to go buy tickets now even though that’s not even possible yet because it doesn’t come out until October. In less than two minutes, that shit managed to get me all kinds of anxious and interested, so the whole movie is probably gonna be BOMB.
Gravity is about two astronauts (Clooney and Bullock, duh) who are trying to get back to Earth after their ship is hit by debris (which the trailer starts to show). I’m so into it – this kinda stuff is right up my street. The movie’s premiering at the Venice Film Festival on August 28, but the best part is that when it’s actually released in theatres, you can see it in 2D, 3D or IMAX. Yessssss.
Apparently some rumours have been flying about that George Clooney was hitting on longtime friend Eva Longoria while he was still officially with Stacy Keibler. Not sure where people get these stories, to be honest, but US Weekly claims that while George and Eva were both in Munich for work, he began “pursuing” her, though the actual hook-up never happened.
“George began pursuing Eva,” the source continues. “He told her that he was still with Stacy, but had plans to break up with her and was interested in being with Eva.”
While once-divorced Longoria resisted, the Descendants star “continued to pursue her with texts and calls. Eva make it clear to him that she would not date or be with him until he was completely single.”
Uh… right. I just don’t see this one happening at all. Well, that’s probably because it didn’t. Eva addressed the “reports” on Twitter early Friday morning to set the record straight:
As interesting as the George Clooney rumors are, they aren't true. George and I have been friends for years.
George Clooney has been living with Stacy Keibler and doing it with her for a while now, since 2011. Stacy Keibler is known for doing it with George Clooney. Yeah, she came from the WWE, but let’s be real, that’s not why she’s famous. She was also on Dancing with the Stars. Because she does it with George Clooney. Do you see where I’m going with this? Her career is based on her doing it with George Clooney. So if the rumors are true, that they broke up or that they’re heading for a break up, she’s screwed. And not by George Clooney. Because he won’t be screwing her anymore. Did I spell this out enough? I like to really break it down.
But according to The Los Angeles Times, Ms. Keibler is the one who broke it off. Yeah, okay. I guess she feels she can ride the success of Lifetime’s Supermarket Superstar, a TV show she’s currently shooting. The LA Times does state though that there are a few stories out there that debate their current status and who did what.
According to People and Britain’s Sunday People, the two have called it quits after about two years of dating — meaning Clooney is once again a single man, a status the debonair leading man seems to enjoy.
But then there’s TMZ, which said the couple are still living together but having “trouble in paradise” due to schedules that are keeping the two apart.
Britain’s Sunday People (via the Daily Mirror) told a slightly different story, quoting an insider who said, “George is quietly backing away from the relationship. It’s always the same. As soon as he feels a woman is getting too close he pulls back.”
Yeah, the Daily Mirror is reporting this, but I don’t care if a dolphin is reporting it, I believe 100% that George Clooney is the one doing the breaking up.
TIME Magazine put out their “Most Influential Icon” (of the last decade) list out and take the #2 spot is Lady Gaga, with Barack Obama right behind her. The #1 Most Influential person is politician Aung San Suu Kyi.
It would help to know what their criteria is and what they consider “influential.” In terms of pop culture, music, and fashion, yeah Lady Gaga is definitely more influential than the President of the United States. They say it’s by who has “had the most impact on our world over the last decade.” Oh, okay, thanks for the specificities.
It’s worth mentioning that TIME didn’t exactly choose these on their own. They came up with a list of people they deemed influential and then asked the public to vote. So that explains a lot. She has a lot of fans who really love her, and she loves them right back.
And hey, it could be worse. At least they didn’t include Bieber this time.
It’s no surprise that the Sexiest Man Alive recognizes the sexiness of the Sexiest Man Alive who came before him, George Clooney. So let’s all just take a deep breath as we listen to Channing Tatum joke about how he would most definitely have sweaty man sex with the Silver Fox, shall we?
“I’ve spent time with George Clooney and he’s the most interesting man on the planet.
He can do it all. Yep, I guess what I’m saying is I’d have sex with him.”
Fair enough, dude. Some hotness translates into all bodily languages, if you feel me, and I think George qualifies here. I don’t think I’ve ever run into a person – male or female, gay or straight – that doesn’t think George Clooney is good looking. That doesn’t mean they’re all attracted to him, but they can acknowledge a handsome face when they see one. Though I have to say, I hope Channing isn’t wanting to settle down – George would never put a ring on it.
