The Lucky Stars of Ocean's 13

The Lucky Stars of Ocean's 13

Time Magazine sat down with some of the stars of Ocean’s 13Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Ellen Barkin — on the terrace at the Hotel du Cap in Cannes, France.

Here’s are some funny excerpts:

On the subject of charisma, you’ve each been called the last great movie star at one point or another. Are we really running out of movie stars, and is that, like, a problem?
CLOONEY: The last real movie stars were probably Redford and Newman. And things were different then. There wasn’t this amazing amount of magazines and information about them.
DAMON: We didn’t know anything about them.
CLOONEY: There was mystique. They’re 60 feet high, and you paid your buck and a half to go see them. But that’s gone. People know everything about everybody now.
PITT: Jaws came along and proved you could make huge money with blockbusters, and it set this thing in motion that has lowered the subject matter. People like George have been getting good stuff out there, but it’s an industry that pushes people out on the big stage too fast, before they’re ready, and it eats them up as well. It’s a different kind of arena now.
BARKIN: Think about it. Do we know anything about Robert Redford’s children? Does he even have any?
DAMON: I worked with him, and I don’t know.
PITT: I have four, if you haven’t heard.

As we’re talking, there are paparazzi in boats out in the harbor taking pictures. Having just been through the celebrity muck of Cannes, who gets it the worst?
CLOONEY: There’s no question, it’s Brad.
PITT: Well, exponentially, with us together …
CLOONEY: But even before he was with [Angelina Jolie], we used to chum the water with him.
PITT: This is not a joke. They used to send me out to take the hits.
CLOONEY: We were at the airport in Italy. So I walk off the plane, and it’s “Hey, Giorgio!” And I go, “Look! Brad Pitt!” and they’re gone.
DAMON: You described it once as “People were stepping on our faces trying to get to Brad.”
PITT: Ah, well, I don’t take it as a compliment.

    i love these interviews everytime the ocean’s movies come out. they are so much fun together. thanks jared.

  • Dancer

    I love the chemistry these three have–they are friends and comfortable with each other. They joke around like “normal” people. Makes them seem like your brother’s friends or the guys living next door (don’t I wish)! Three hugely talented actors!

  • Alicia

    cute! :D

  • http://allconsidered.com sharon

    of course, it is Brad get most of media attention. I will melt by just looking at his beautiful blue eyes.

  • Mmmmm

    This interview I think is a wake up call to BP fans telling them to get a clue .. he is basically saying “admire my work but not my life”

    George totally rocks!

  • Love Brangelina

    Thanks for the new post Jared :)

    You rock!

    US Magazine’s Twisted Double Life!

    The cover story of the June 11 issue of US Weekly — “Inside Shiloh’s World: The secret home life of a daddy’s girl and the surprising truth about Mom” — breathlessly promises an exclusive inside peek at the day-to-day family life of Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and their children, with emphasis on daughter Shiloh, who recently celebrated her first birthday.

    Star decided to investigate — and discovered that US Weekly’s revelations about Jolie-Pitt’s “secret home life” aren’t so secret after all. In fact, most of the article has been recycled from TV interviews and other magazines, including Reader’s Digest, U.K.’s Elle and Glamour!

    US Weekly’s fascinating revelations (that, ahem, they’ve totally “borrowed” from previously published interviews) include these riveting bon mots: Angelina loves spending time with her children, creating Easter baskets, and sharing play dates with her kids, their friends and the other moms. Yes, it sure sounds like Angelina is a terrific mother, according to US.

    But hold on — that’s quite a different picture from the one Us Weekly recently painted of Jolie in it’s April 9 issue, whose cover story on Angelina blared: “Her Twisted Double Life!”

    That feature — which, again, recycled previously published Jolie interviews from other publications — went on for eight pages, claiming Angelina had “broken her promise to be a stay-at-home mom” and that she had “secret fights with Brad over Pax’s adoption.” Of course, neither of these appear to be true: The couple is still together, and Jolie has just anounced that she will be taking a year off to be with her children.

    Talk about Faux Biz!

    US Magazine’s Twisted Double Life!

    Awesome. I hope all of those magazines self destruct. You can see it happening. They all lie and they are all calling each other out.

  • Tab wars!!!

    I love it!!!! The tabs are fighting each other!!!!

  • Alicia

    OMFG, hilarious! from the article:

    DAMON:[To Pitt and Clooney] Is it true that you were the last two actors up for the hitchhiker role in Thelma & Louise?

    CLOONEY: It was pretty embarrassing. They brought Brad and me in, and they just made us take our shirts off and stand there for a while, and then they picked Brad.

    PITT: That is absolutely not true.

    LMAO!! :D

  • [Famous Fug Face]

    good god, where the fcuk is Ellen’s ass?

  • luvthem

    I suppose we now can breathe easily. After all, the tabs’ war will clarifying all the lies that they did to the Jolie-Pitts.

  • Yeah

    Dag George’s teeth look like they are about to come out LOL!!!

  • KAT

    God i love the Ocean Boys (ahem, MEN, LOL)…i love it when they do these itnerviews together cuz its always in a fun way, not to be taken seriously.

    But i gotta say…LMAO at the tabs fighting each other…LOL….never did i think i would see something like that…but its totally awesome…i hope in the end they all vanish!

    I think Min started a war that she cant win…and i LOVE it.

  • Anadin

    love all the guys their interviews are always funny.

  • Mmmmm

    Looks like Ellen suffers from SBS (Shovel Butt Sydrome) like AJ. I bet BP is totally turned on by Ellen. Yuck!

    SBS – Your bottom looks like it has been smashed flat by a shovel.

  • Gussie

    Is Ellen Matt’s love interest in the movie?

  • Anadin

    LMAO at the tab wars, i want more to join in, should be fun

  • LMAO

    us vs Star is ON! This is payback from yesterday! I’m so loving the trash talking between tabs.

  • [Famous Fug Face]

    Let me find out Ocean and the gang stole ugly-ass Ellen’s butt in the movie. Damn that prankster Clooney, give back her ass George!

  • LAM

    Thanks JJ. This interview is so funny and it shows how humble Brad is despite all the media and public attention he gets. I remember a scene from Ocean’s Twelve premier in Japan when they are arriving at the airport. When Matt came out of the door, he told the interviewer, “watch all the girls scream when Brad comes out.” They are so funny!

  • question?

    Isn’t Star the worst though when it comes to the Jolie-Pitt bashing?

  • LAM

    Thanks JJ. This interview shows how humble BP is despite all the media attention. I remembered their arrival in Tokyo airport for Oceans 12 shown on TV. When Matt came out of the door, he told the interviewer, “Watch out for the girls scream when Brad comes out.” They are so funny.

  • scrolling along

    Mmmmm has made it a mission in her life to annoy us, even if it means she will have to be on JustJared 24/7/365. Just ignore her; I have learned to scroll past her name as soon as I see it.

    Why is he hiding her?

  • twokids2

    o13 ,huh?

  • AddictedtoBAMPZs

    #37, scrolling along…Yup, same here.

    In one quote from George on the first page of the interview the writer has Angelina’s name in brackets. This usually means they are substituting the actual name for some other the readers may not recognize. I am SO curious to know what George called her! I am guessing he knows her so well by now he has a pet name for her…

  • twokids2

    they should mention there wives dont ya think?hello.

  • [Famous Fug Face]

    Did you know each other at that point?

    CLOONEY: I knew him afterward.

    DAMON: “Hey, that’s the f___ing guy that took my job!”

    CLOONEY: My friends said, “You want to see Thelma & Louise?” And I’m like, “F___ Thelma & Louise!” But it was fairly obvious when you saw the movie why I didn’t get it, ’cause Brad just knocked it out of the park.

    PITT: Aw, they were just grooming you for Batman.

    ~Hilarious~

    ROTFLMFAO! It’s nice to see the Star firing back at Janice Min. Min has started a Black Widow Feeding Frenzy at the tabloids. Here’s hoping all choke to death on their own rancid meat.
