Clooney, Roberts @ Oprah Oscars Special

Clooney, Roberts @ Oprah Oscars Special

Oscar winners Julia Roberts and George Clooney interview each other at George‘s home in the Hollywood Hills during Oprah’s Oscar Special. The pair receive a surprise phone call from pal Brad Pitt and hilarity ensues. Here’s a mini-transcript of their conversation together:

Julia: George Clooney’s house. Hello?
Brad: Julia? Hey, it’s Brad. Listen, I was thinking I would avoid the line of questioning about the Oscars. You know, I would stick with the [People's] Sexiest Man Alive line of questioning. Who’s that [in the background]? Is that George?
George: Hey, hi!
Brad: Hey, how are you doing? We’ve just been talking about how great we thought it was that you were the two-time Sexiest Man Alive winner…and you know George, you’re a real inspiration, a real inspiration to us younger guys.
George: I just wanted you to know that I thought you looked great when you didn’t win at the Golden Globes.
Brad: Thank you, man. Thank you! And I think the plastic surgery is fantastic! You really cannot tell. You really can’t tell. Hey listen, while I’ve got you on the phone, I think the question America really wants to know and hear from you is what exactly are the responsibilities of wearing the crown of the Sexiest Man Alive?
George: Well, you did a pretty good job of tarnishing it for a long time and they thought they’d bring me in to clean it up again. I think I’m doing a really good job.

There are also completely false Internet rumors that George had plastic surgery. Lies, lies, lies! If you watch the interview below, you’ll know he was speaking in jest.

George won an Oscar in 2006 for Syriana. Julia took home the coveted statue in 2001 for her work in Erin Brockovich.

    Clooney, Pitt & Roberts have great chemistry together, it’s a shame Julia won’t be in Oceans 13.

    To bad you missed it. It was really funny and sweet. George and Brad are really cool together.

  • mel

    I didn’t watch it. Last night was a crazy tv night. Grey’s anatomy, The OC finale, hockey, etc. Craziness people.

    I had class that night =( but thanks to the power of the internet I can see what I All 3 ‘em are cool like that! what a funny interview :lol:

  • Langtry

    I recognize that people have different ideas about what they find entertaining, but that interview had to be one of the most insipid things I’ve ever watched! Seriously, I was embarassed for Oprah that she’d thought this would be revealing or unique from the usual celebrity interview program.

    And what was with all the flunkies hanging around, including the one who had to helop Julia into her coat while George was BBQ-ing? Was her question so in need of her concentration that she could climb into her coat by herself? That moment was really revealing, tho: it should the extent to which neither could quite do this thing without an entourage of “helpers”.

    Again, embarassing and amateur.

  • jeez

    Thank God I live in UK….if I had to watch crap on TV like this, I would invest in a good radio. Bloody rubbish! Best if these idiots stuck to acting, they have nothing of value to say.

  • New Jennifer

    This is what plastic surgery can do to your face!,,20012423_2,00.html

    Aniston really looks so different not, I think her nose job had disorted her face, her smile is different, overall, she looks uglier!!! Sorry dont want to be mean, but really Cox looks a lot more beautiful than her now.

    And wow, both are really media manipulator, look at the tight hug, lesbo rumors anyone. Their dirt episode is coming soon! Just cant stand her!!!!!! She seems so desperate nowadays!!!!!

  • about Aniston

    Jennifer Aniston looks the same to me. What are you talking about? What distorted look?

  • tanique33

    seriously? what does jennifer aniston have to do with a george clooney julia interview?

  • hello

    jeez Says:

    lmao and yet you dragged you a s s here to post?

  • Estelle

    Thanks JJ for the link to the video. I saw it last night, they were so funny together and love it when Brad called in as well.

    JR is truly the American Sweetheart, she is just glowing and beautiful. Congratz on her pregnancy, great news.

    GC, ok AG, he’s charming, goodness, he can charms a bad mood pregnant lady into laughing hysterically and giggling through out the interview one minute and almost make her cry in the next…..gotta give it to him. This man is ALL MAN AG. ;)

  • jeez

    well, hello….I was told what a crap interview that was and this site is showing it. If you have a problem with me looking at this site you can sod off. I have an opinion just like anyone. Oh, and I don’t drag my ass here.

    Jared my lips are pressed against the computer screen now sending you a big huge kiss for posting this!

  • AddictedtoBAMZs+1

    Jared, You did it! Thank you so much! I really wanted to see this and hear them talk together! Cute. Actually alot like everyone else. Just being silly, teasing. So glad you could put this up.

  • I like this picture
  • nope

    I like this picture Says:


  • how utterly


  • AddictedtoBAMZs+1

    I think you will see exactly what you want to see. If you wanted to see two icons(and hear three!)relaxing for a few minutes, get a look at George’s house, and feel a little better about yourself because you dress, eat, and goof around the same way they do when they are not on camera, here you go. If you wanted them to be brilliantly funny or brilliantly incisive as they would be if scripted, you have a gripe. I think you chose the wrong interview to expect great things. They just wanted to show the world who they really are. No big thing…

  • d

    julia roberts is hilarious

  • SJ


    George, Brad and Jules are good together. Sadly Angelina will never endear herself to that crowd because she believes people should come to her. She’s totally friendless in the world and she smothers Brad

  • RAT

    Oprah, Oprah, Oprah! How I loathe thee!

    I can’t f*cking stand Oprah or anything that she does or is associated with. We can all thank Oprah for Tyra Banks (Oprah wannabe), Rachael Ray, the great Dr. Phil, Legends Ball (Oprah love me fest), pre-Oscar interviews (like this piece of crap), post-Oscar interviews and putting her f*cking face on every f*cking single f*cking one of her mother f*cking sorry ass mother f*cking magazine covers.

    How much do you want to bet that Oprah wrote out every single question that she wanted to be asked? Anybody? I’m gonna take a wild guess and say 100%, give or take. I’m thinking that the conversation between Julia and Oprah went something like this:

    Oprah: Here are the questions I want you to ask George.

    Julia: But I have my own question for George.

    Oprah: My questions are better.

    Julia: But you haven’t even looked at my questions. How do you know they’re better?

    Oprah: I don’t have to look at them to know they’re better. I’m Oprah and anything I do is better than anything you could ever possibly do. Plus, I’m always right.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure it went something like that.

    You know what would be refreshing. If just one of these big movie stars would just tell Oprah to go f*ck herself and not go on her show or do these stupid interviews. That would be nice. It’ll never happen because these movie stars love themselves just as much as Oprah does.

  • Lovely pictures
  • Jen and Julia
  • bc

    Thanks Jared.

  • unbelievable

    rat: i agree with u. would never watch an oprah production. unfortunately, i missed hearing brad.



  • bc

    I have always liked Julia Roberts. She has the best smile.

  • Mmmmm

    Now that is a hot bum, sorry angelina lovers Jen’s bum rocks! I do not think that Angie even has one does she? Anyway, thanks who ever posted that pic. mmmm

  • bc

    Jen has a hot bum, but Angelina has a beautiful face.

  • Mmmmm

    If you like Muppets … total animated character her face looks like. Forehead is wow, growing every day but I wouldnt mind those lips.

  • nope

    jennifer’ ass is fat

  • Mondo Bongo!

    Damn you have a – s h i t – load of issues!!
    Lighten up!!!
    These interviews are between friends, not award winning
    interviews, not 20/20 or Barbara WaWa – just friends.

    Now i don’t care for Oprah, but she offered a new twist on the
    interview thing, very informal.
    better than one of those A-holes sticking a mike in your face
    and asking ” who are you wearing” etc, etc, dumb questions.

    So let’s chill ~peace!!

  • Speaker of the truth!!!!!!!

    Hey its a hell of alot better than looking like Mr. Ed. JMO. And i really can’t stand neither of them but i’d take a cartoon character over a horse face any day. Just Saying can manistons face get any longer. at the rate she’s going her face will reach the ground before her tits. Jolie just needs to eat i mean come on lets go back to the lara croft body. she was totally fuckable then u can’t deny that .

  • c


  • ntt

    let’s ask ourselves, what would a bum like Jen’s look like after a pregnancy? A horse behind. That’s why dear Jen is so afraid of having kids.

  • http://uk sad

    thank God Brad dumped jen.she is so clingy

  • hey hey

    Hah, those pics showed Jennifer the days when she was with an A-lister and hang out with other A-listers. Now …. meh, she hangs out with Courteney and David and Sheryl Crow, who are at best C-listers.
