George Clooney Discusses 'Descendants' in Telluride

George Clooney attends a Q&A session for his new movie, The Descendants, during the 38th Telluride Film Festival on Saturday (September 3) in Telluride, Colo.

The 50-year-old actor, with co-star Shailene Woodley, chatted about the dramedy, which centers around a land baron who tries to reconnect with his two daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident.

When asked how director Alexander Payne got him to cry for a critical scene, George replied, “He reminded me of how he didn’t cast me in Sideways.”

“So I let it all go. I also wet my pants at the same time,” he joked.

    Oh man. How does he get more gorgeous with each passing year?

    Love his smile and his relaxed, happy vibe as he sprawls fetchingly on that chair. <3!

  • LOL

    Only the Media loves Box Office Bomb Looney…..sooooo overrated in so many ways. All Hype no substance.

  • LOL

    I think they are more in love with his Lefty Politics than actual Talent.

  • wow

    Congrats George on Ides of March. Looks like we will be seeing you around a lot during awards season. You are very talented.

    There is a possiblity with this movie alone for him to get 3 Ocars because besides acting and directing it he wrote the movie!

  • nyob

    He looks hotter than ever here. Love the sweater/jeans combo on him.

  • janie

    “So I let it all go. I also wet my pants at the same time,” he joked. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!

    Oh Georgie! You’re looking gorgeous and doing great. Please stay a bachelor forever and your fans will love you more. You don’t need to be married to validate yourself as the Sexiest Man Alive Forever and Ever!!!

  • http://dededdde JUSTINA – WOW WOW , LOOK PEOPLE ! O_O lol

  • Susie

    Something really special!!

  • Oliver

    I’ve seen the movie, I still continue thinking…. it is unbelievable!

  • Every Rose Has Its Thorn

    Though he’s discussing The Descendants here, for which he’ll probably get best actor nomination given his dynamic performance, I’m convinced he should get best director nomination for Ides of March.
    The momentum builds up at a thrilling & fast pace.
    Engaged my mind continuously.
    Shocked & numbed me too.
    The kind of film audiences yearn for in such a dark political drama.
    @wow – Don’t know if best adapted screenplay qualifies as I thought it was loosely based on Farragut North. Could be though. And more than likely Best Supporting actor.

  • Hang Ten

    George looks super sexy & relaxed here.
    Haven’t seen him so happy & sincere for years. Least of all during the last few films he released.
    Must be proud of his brilliant work.
    Two great films coming out that will net him a lot of accolades.
    Both already receiving rave reviews.

  • runswithbats

    @Every Rose Has Its Thorn: Yes, he and Grant Heslov could be nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay rather than Best Original Screenplay. From the reviews so far, I’d say they have a good chance.

    I’m looking forward to seeing The Descedants and Ides of March.

  • anna

    I can’t wait for this film!

  • George

    @anna: Ohh sorry I could not wait, already watched it! :-D and I even liked, though I did not understand everything…

  • Oh Really?

    Katiedot “I’ve seen the pics – and will post them here later on – and they look really great together. As far as I can tell the pics don’t look photoshopped and it genuinely looks like George and Stacy together.” Whole this blog promotes George Clooney and paid by Stan Rosenfield. Katiedot is administrator.

  • no way!

    what Series#2 begin???
    Stan has never thought that it affects much in a bad way George’s reputation.
    Pay attention to lillo’s post who says that “Clooney! he have to apologize with american people!”

  • Smell my pants!

    O come on, Stan don’t give a damn about George,
    as well as about Charlie Sheen.
    He earns his money on hookers, his style never changes!

  • I’m Smarter Than You!

    @Hmm: yes RunWith Bats makes valid points. They’re the same that Silverscreen her alter ego states. Like she’s someone’s conscience.
    But they’re the same issues from over a year ago.
    Hermaphrodite Canalis were the fake ring over a year ago. I remember Elmer Fudd stating that “what can I say, she likes to wear rings..”
    Is George a pusssy?? A coward??
    Why can’t he put an end to this?
    Don’t give me baloney about compromising photos that Stan may release.
    Stan works to promote George and if he cleans out at the Academy Awards next year, Stan reaps the success too.
    If George has one iota of intelligence, he’ll delegate how he wants his publicity. Just as he did recently.
    Now they’re preparing the Keibler bulllshit.
    Someone has to have their cake and eat it too, now don’t they??
    And I’m still wondering if Kirstie Alley is just the patsy here.

  • Pipe

    @Referee: I know for sure – she was not in Venice.
    Of course first we will see pics, but you are right if so they could be made only in late July, after that they did not even cross. And judging by the mood of George and his real gal, no hookershit happened during this period.
    How George will react to it, we’ll see… I think Stan will finish badly, might even lead to the point that he had to resign.

  • Oh Really?

    @Referee: yes it is true on this and other sites were spread gay and other discredited rumors, has been done everything to separate him with his real girlfriend.
    Katiedot is not guilty, she and other administrators are paid and they write what Stan wants… but the question is whether George himself wants it?
    All this completely switches off the attention from the content of movies and of George himself… what George is so mad to cripple his films?
    recent interview show that he is happy and adequate!

    maybe we should pounder one more time about this post from
    Cash -…All these dancing girls – Kirstie Alley Horse Shop, has also two doctors by her side
    They brainwashed Stan… he is unstable and mentally prone, it is clear from his facial expressions and hand movements.
    So was born the joint project.
    they give out all the discrediting George information, happens like this:
    George is a gay – their motto, seven persons spread it to all threads
    George did you hear about? you should immediately date a girl, in Hollywood it is very important what other think of you… and so George did while they made money on hookers whom they shove to him to make promo.

    Dexter Gnome pushes the Keibler issue as a ruse that it’s to do with sabotaging Canalis Bulllshit. It is how it was told to George but Rosenfield is making profit from that association.
    “I wouldn’t be surprised if her voting is rigged & they keep her on the show until (LO & BEHOLD) The Descendants is released” it certainly helps not to remember his movies and to switch completely our attention onto hooker landscapes.

  • leslie

    now neither SIlverscreen nor anyone else can say that Katiedot was bought by Canalis because she was bought only by Stan himself. And the continuation of her defamatory activities, as well as financial bills, clearly tells us about it.

  • 50 Stan

    @I’m Smarter Than You!: “All cut from the same cloth. Interchangeably scrofulous & mendacious. Vulgar, ugly women.” like George chooses them? or these are for him? He completely does not care actually. This is Stan’s merchandise for sale, Stan is just a usual Pimp and he selects the goods which he can sell to his clients. The girls for the most part are imbeciles and on drugs. Canalis by stupidity have told how much costs one night with her and how much she earned promoting her sex service to everyone while she was escorting George. Of course everyone would like to lay George’s “girlfriend” is like to lay George himself, and they pay exactly for this.

  • Ideamonger

    So now until all these money will not run out Canalis can spend them to participate in DWTS or elsewhere. I even have a great idea – why would DWTS not to do 2 phone numbers: one for voting and other to buy Canalis for a night. Attention *Canalis has become more accessible than ever! *
    And Stacy Kiebler even when “dating” with George says that she likes Brad Pitt so that it would be clear for everybody that she does not even care with whom, she only wants to be paid.

  • Piano

    @Cynical Semiotician: yeah, right! George himself put a piano onto his ballls and walks around winking “everything’s okay, I am completely fine!”

  • Eyewitness

    @Cynical Semiotician: his gal is equal to him. Not more, not less. Ok, maybe a slightly prettier than him & looks younger. And she doesn’t seek limelight.
    Just deliberately blends in the background. But if she did seek limelight, she would have conquered. Her energy expenditure went elsewhere.

  • Sexy Mic

    @Eyewitness: No, her energy went into the right place, that’s why George so confidently holds that microphone!
    and exactly that’s why he run like a wild at 68th VFF. But pay attention it wasn’t yet even 69th….
    To the fact, in Venice there was no Stacy Kiebler at all, as well as on the RedCarpet. George has won at this.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin’

    @Sexy Mic: oh, wow! Can’t wait till the 69th one! That’s if Clooney has a film there.

    I see you’ve edited me like crazy, boss :-P

  • Good Luck

    well, what do you know!
    Intimate photos with Stacy Keibler & George Clooney too.
    I hope he’s happy with her.
    Another great pairing.
    No one FORCED him to pose with her.
    No one FORCED him to spend nights with her in London & wherever the hell these ones were taken.

    I hope George is happy.

  • Sexy Mic

    @Ain’t Misbehavin’: 68th VFF was pedestrian erotic route without frontal openness above the belt.. usual billboards.. red lipstick…

  • Good Luck

    He’s a FAKE. A compulsive liar!
    Duplicitous. An insecure man who’s afraid of his own emotions.
    Doesn’t have any.
    God forbid his little world is shook up.
    That Rande et al may not approve for whom he may develop feelings.
    Buy them out, where you can.
    The biggest hooker of the lot is Clooney!
    Convinces himself to sleep with the women arranged for him to prove he’s straight & they’re part of his conjugal duties.
    Makes a film about morality & plays the ultimate villain. How appropriate!
    He’ll get what he deserves in the long run! Keep drinking to dumb out reality, fool!

  • Dont make dorks out of urselfs

    @Good Luck: First of all it definitely wasn’t in Venice, this photo-shoot was made by special arrangement and Stacy had not stayed in his house for a night. George agreed himself? after your stinky persuasions. And you even here wrote this theme that Stan did not have enough money to pay for a movie, it’s all your cash. Interesting what percent gets Kirstie Alley from such pandering?

  • Jiga

    @Good Luck: Kirstie Alley, how much do you want for this speech? It’s off the hook talk, such I heard only by Mick Jagger…

  • Good Luck

    awwwww, what’s the matter?

    Can’t they find another mail-order contract girlfriend for George.
    Geez, he has no luck in the relationship department.
    This Godzilla Stacy Fry-Pan face towers over him. He’s about 5ft 10″ nowadays. Age…..

    how about hooking him up with Diane Kruger or Vittoria Puccini?
    They’re more decent than the whores Stan pimps??
    And what the helll has battle-axe Kirstie Alley got to do with all this??
    Shouldn’t she be doing a tummy tuck to stretch the folds of loose flesh?
    Or is this hooker-arrangement residual fee going to pay the bill?
    And the revenue covers Elmer Fudd’s expenses.
    Lost respect for Clooney.
    He needs enlightenment.
    Scrapes Sardinian mud off his boots only to dip it in mud-wrestling.
    Go on! Delete this too, COWARD!

  • Good Luck

    I damn well know the Keibler photos aren’t from Venice.
    I was there! Didn’t see the freak with him.

    The fact is that he’s agreed to play boyfriend of another hooker coz he’s an insecure fool! A corrupt sell-out!

    That’s my point!
    No respect for the man! He’s INSECURE. I can see his motives.

    This is about him trying to please others.
    Acting vague in the process.
    Too transparent to me.

  • and Good Riddance!

    what real girlfriend?
    He’s afraid to have feelings for anyone but the GC brand.
    The idiot is intimidated by love….
    If there was a real gal in Venice, she probably avoided even making eye contact with him! God, knows how much he may have hurt her in the past.
    He’s just a cheap hooker himself.
    A man who makes a film about morality.
    Note the irony in that!

  • Sexy Mic

    @Good Luck: OO wow compulsive liar!!!… OO Duplicitous… mmm… afraid of his own?… OMG! that big?? omg so big that my little world is shook up way to much…….. and by that he can also develop….. it is unbelievable….. you think it is that big because it is phony, I am starting already to doubt.. though it is too late to think, my little panties got very wet already …
    the women arranged for him.. yes, virgins… everyday he must drink 100ml of blood… he is vampire! Aaaaa…
    The biggest.. lot of Clooney….. uhhh.. it calms me down again…makes about morality….plays the ultimate villain… How appropriate! all in one person!! Women just adore moral villains!!
    He’ll get what he deserves in the long.. O, you will drive all us crazy, he’s got and without that very big!!…. I need a glass of champagne….to dumb out my imagination about big…. reality

  • WhiteHouseCarpet

    @and Good Riddance!: what we see it is that in fact this photo-shoot pre-planned and professionally done. If George wanted sexual relationship with someone why would he do a photo-shoot like this?! The conclusion comes by itself that this is just fake. Why no other candidates? is because other candidates have paid less than Stacy did. Stacy looks foolish with this her embraces – it is very typical gesture in certain situation.
    And here is no political scandal, and no Hilary Clinton as well ;-) George’s gal is interested more in quality. I think If she’d appeared in Bill Clinton’s Oval Office and saw Monica Lewinski with a full… she would just decide that she bought for him not the right one pet food.

  • Gioconda

    @Sexy Mic: yes, my little world….

    Maybe this is why he’s been happy lately. His relationship with Keibler is becoming official.
    No she wasn’t in Venice.
    But he made a pivotal decision to announce it.
    Something triggered it.

    And so another long contract agreement begins.
    Therefore, I can’t imagine there’s a real girlfriend.

  • Sexy Peninses

    @Gioconda: and why would imagine that?

  • Gioconda

    @Sexy Peninses: because a real girlfriend would not endure this.
    Who in their right mind embarks on a fake contract agreement with a dispensable woman of ill-repute, forsaking a person he genuinely loves?
    Doesn’t make sense.
    So, elementary deduction leads me to believe that there is no real girlfriend.
    Btw – size does not matter. Too big (length/ girth whatever… and it’s too damn painful, so don’t gloat.)

  • anon

    What real girlfriend??? Wow, if there is one, what a doormat she must be. I think that this “real girlfriend” is the figment of a lot of imaginations (or they imagine themselves as the “real girlfriend)!!

  • Sexy Penises

    @Gioconda: you see, we came to the right conclusion – that size must be the right one cause other way hurts exactly this and not that he is with S.Keibler. but you do not understand this, that’s why you are not his real gf. To be his girlfriend one must understand many things, she does not have such problems as you.
    @anon: since she is soul mate, so she is the same as him, though kinda more beautiful.. Doormat or not doormat and she also have no problems with this!

  • anon

    @sexypenises…..hmmm soul mate huh? Okay……….

  • JustAFriend

    and I heard that his real girlfriend installed cameras in his house, so maybe that’s why she does not worry that there could be anything more than just a mean photo-shoot. Plus it’s obvious from photos that they are not alone there, and the hand that George holds belongs to the person who sits on the left side from him, if to look carefully you can see thumb of right hand, Stacy’s it would be the left one.
    This photo-shoot was made at the day when Stacy drove near George’s house gates. When she left it was still a day. His girlfriend perceives this as just another role in movie. Just one more role, that’s all.. they way she would perceive shooting erotic scenes in Solaris…
    There is the inner content of communication, synchronism, depth of feeling, but here everything is empty. So girls should not be jealous neither of Canalis, nor of Stacy. It means nothing.

  • anon

    These delusions just keep getting better and better!!! Hidden cameras?
    Mean photo shoot?? Wow. Plus the way that these are written suggest someone who is foreign.

  • The End

    On your posts Good Luck, and Good Riddance!and others.. your enthusiasm to discredit George’s is more than obvious. The same you did by means of Canalis swallowing The American, the same you do and now.
    So just you now it was George’s test, so he invented it. And now he knows exactly about all you actions. Now all he has to is only to find the right time to make transitions, maybe it happens a little later. Now he is too busy.
    And so just you know – His gal is way too beautiful, and he is way too smart!

  • anon

    @TheEnd if there is a “soul mate” wouldn’t now be the time to trot her out?? George’s fans would be happy to see that there is a “real woman” rather than the last few he has been hooked up with. Oh I know why he can’t, there is no “REAL GIRLFRIEND”. Face it he just wants to be single and enjoy his life. Why can’t people just accept that!

  • me

    His ex beard will be dancing with the stars.



    The biggest fear an A-lister has is fading from the limelight.
    He’ll be damned if anyone dare shatters his microcosm of self-deception! His come along way and paid his dues. All based on sheer determination & luck. Without the latter, he’d be nothing!

    And so Elmer Fudd tells him to give the green-light to Fugly Stacy Moon-Face with the big beak & no lips. Built like a man with big hooves.
    And Clooney the Pusssy accepts. Only blames it on others. Kirstie.. Stan…whoever…. Not the cannon-fodder gnomes. They complained to him that they’re doing their job. Others are the patsies!
    The coward of the county!

    As far as I’m concerned he can go hump Kirstie Hippo’s thigh & bark up another tree!
    If women just adore moral villains, then men love bit*ches!
