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.

# 5

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!

# 7

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

# 8

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!

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!!! @ 05/31/2007 at 12:47 pm

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

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.


[Famous Fug Face] @ 05/31/2007 at 12:52 pm

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

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

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

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.

love all the guys their interviews are always funny.

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.

Is Ellen Matt’s love interest in the movie?

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

# 19 | Mmmmm
You are unbelievable! Aren’t you tired and sick of yourself? coz, I am.

Ellen looks good for her age, so what if she doesn’t have a rear, frankly i think thats better than having too much junk in the trunk

US Magazine’s Twisted Double Life!
us vs Star is ON! This is payback from yesterday! I’m so loving the trash talking between tabs.
