George Clooney & Viola Davis Cover 'EW'

George Clooney and Viola Davis take the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, on newsstands Friday (January 6).

Here’s what the Oscar frontrunners had to share with the mag:

Viola, on The Help being her first leading role: “First lead role ever in a movie. So it was my first time to really create a character from beginning to end. I’ve always just shown up and, whatever my lines are, I just do it, like almost robotic in a way. But this is the first time I felt a huge responsibility – to the African-American community, to the people who read the book. A lot was on our shoulders.”

George, on watching movies differently since he began directing: “I’m able to remove myself a little more and say, ‘I understand why he used this take instead of a take I thought would be better.’ Even things where people go, ‘You really nailed it,’ you go back and watch it and say, ‘Wow, I could’ve done so many different things.’”

  • signage

    Okay, I’m back to being officially disgusted with Clooney. Seems the lastest famewhore is still doing staged photo ops with the imposter dog she got a few months ago for famewhoring purposes. He needs to announce the end of the publicity contract, and he needs to tell the TRUTH about it this time.

  • yep

    love the cover! agree oscar winners

  • TIMEKEEPER

    LOL! LOL! LOL! Oh this is too funny!!!!!!!! This is a pic of pure desperation. Anna is laughing and will be for days! You hear me Stacy? DAYS!!!!!!!!! Poor Einstein looks so terrified. This is what we call the picture of desperation and insecurity indeed!
    Signage, calm down. This is just comic relief, and Stacy does look a bit tore up without makeup. Then again she could have been crying or something. Now we know why Einstein hasn’t been posting. Big bad evil wanna be step-mother Stacy laid down the law. Poor Einstein! Doggy can’t catch a break! Man! This photo-op stunk! Familiar with this terrain where she is. Paps don’t “happen” to catch you there. Also paps don’t just happen to be carrying heavy equipment, unless they are flown in by helicopter where this pic was taken, unless they came in on the side of Mulholland where the organization Tree People are stationed. What a nitwit! Lol! Guys enjoy!

  • TIMEKEEPER-Message from Anna

    Very wise words for George.

    George, your Personal Year Number for 2012 is 7

    Color: ⁠ Violet, Purple ⁠
    Jewel: ⁠ Amethyst ⁠
    Keyword: ⁠ Faith

     

    George, according to your chart, This is an inner year

    The fruit is just beginning to show on the vine and you must have faith it will ripen. Take time for reflection, study and self-analysis. Spend lots of time alone and use it constructively. Analyze your thoughts and actions. What would you like to change about yourself? The number 7 always reveals things we normally do not see. Look at your life. This year is for inner growth and preparation. Don’t reach out or try to force things. Let things come to you. Release the business world as much as possible. Meditate and be introspective. Leave the social life for another time. You may travel to learn more about yourself. This is a spiritual year, so flow with it. Allow your soul to grow.

    @TIMEKEEPER: That’s not Einstein in those pics. It is an impostor dog that Cray Cray got a few months ago for famewh*ring purposes. Einstein is family to George, and he would not let an untrustworthy crazy like Cray Cray get hold of him. She’d be the type to feed him chocolate just so she’d could tweet about taking him to the vet. Also, she is wearing makeup, just not as much as she wears for other photo ops, and this is a planned photo op. She is wearing foundation, concealer, mascara, pink lip gloss, and neutral toned eyeshadow. She was probably in makeup for at least an hour before posing for the staged photo op.

  • TIMEKEEPER-Message from Anna

    Signage- Read my posts. I said these were staged. Uh hellooooooooo? I see I got thumbs down. Lol! Someone is not happy. Lol!

  • signage

    @TIMEKEEPER-Message from Anna: You got a thumbs down because you lied about the dog being Einstein, and because you lied about Cray Cray giving Einstein orders and controlling him.

  • TIMEKEEPER-Message from Anna

    I did not know that the dog was an impostor. The dog clearly does not want to be near her. Impostor or not. Lighten up! Find the humor in this charade.

  • signage

    @TIMEKEEPER-Message from Anna: There is very little humor in this charade, but what little there is I found and made fun of. I don’t find blatant lies pushing the false notion that Keibler has control of Clooney’s dog to be funny. She is a dangerous dishonest user, and I’m both disgusted with her and with the fact that Clooney has promoted her. Clooney needs to admit to himself and to others that this charade was a huge mistake. Not everything is a joke. Promoting cultural harm to women everywhere is not funny. Aiding and abetting someone as evil as Keibler is not funny.

  • signage

    As for Anna, Clooney obviously hates her. He’s demonstrated this repeatedly.

  • signage

    As for Anna, Clooney obviously cares nothing about her, as he has repeatedly shown.

  • signage

    He strung her along until she was too old to have children or any kind of life. All because he was afraid to admit he actually might like her, and he was also too afraid to tell her goodbye and give her closure. It was wrong. So now it’s all a big joke? Forgive me if I don’t find it funny. Of course you will say it was all her fault, because that’s what you always do. I guess it was partly her fault for believing he was a better person than he actually was. He won’t tell the truth about the charade involving Keibler, because he’s not he’s not the good person Anna mistakenly thought he was. He will continue living a below average life in terms of integrity, authenticity, and genuine happiness, with an above average paycheck that comes from selling his soul.

    This quote is for Clooney and his famewhore escorts.
    .
    “Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance.”
    – Saint Augustine

  • TIMEKEEPER

    @Signage- It is funny because they are promoting something people have figured out to be funny. The fact that George and Co. Have not figured that out yet, and Kiebler looks desparate and insecure is funny. You do not know squat where Anna is concerned. You can wish well for someone, and have a life of your own, obviously, you have missed that. She is still young enough to have a family, and smart enough to know Clooney is not a family man. Besides Clooney, and Kiebler you are delusional to think otherwise. Idiots like Kiebler and how George is acting is funny. I delivered the messages from Anna so George and his thick skull will see it in black and white. So when this bites him in the a*s*s (and it will), he can think about what was written and be mad at himself. So since when did God hand over the reins of justice to you? God last time I checked was still in charge, or do you give God orders too?

  • signage

    There is no Anna.

  • signage

    It doesn’t matter what Anna thinks or wants, since she doesn’t exist. She was merely someone people imagined, in an effort to justify and make Clooney’s publicity charades more tolerable. Anna is a myth. There is only George and his trashy publicity machine. No Anna to make sense of it all. She was just a dream.

  • signage

    As for Clooney, he is just an actor who repeatedly demonstrates poor judgement where his publicity is concerned. As a public figure, people are free to express opinions about him and his actions, especially those actions that may have harmful effects. The Dave Matthews Band was fined when their tour bus dumped sewage off of a bridge. The public is free to fine Clooney similarly by not paying for his movies.
    “US rock group The Dave Matthews Band have been accused of dumping human waste from a bus into a river, dousing a tour boat filled with passengers.” http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3597180.stm
    The public feels similarly each time we are subjected to a trashy publicity escort being dumped on us.

  • TIMEKEEPER

    Lol! Anna a dream! Oh yeah. Just like you are not Clooney. Posing as someone else just to jerk people’s chains. Lol! Oh I do not know what’s funnier, your nonsense or you who more than likely really Clooney. Putting on this show.

  • signage

    Just an fyi, on Celebitchy, there was a game that included asking people what they would do with Clooney: http://www.celebitchy.com/200359/george_clooney_matt_damon_daniel_craig_cover_vanity_fair_who_looks_worse/
    Most people said they would kill him rather than do anything else with him. I did not participate in the game. I am just passing along the information. Read the comments. That is the result of the type of publicity methods he and Rosenfield have been using.

  • signage

    @TIMEKEEPER: I think Anna is a dream, or we would have seen her by now. People wanted to believe there was someone real for Clooney, so they made her up, like a fairy tale. But fairy tales aren’t real.

  • signage

    And Clooney is too thickheaded to admit when he’s made a mistake, so he just keeps repeating the same mistake in an effort to prove it wasn’t a mistake. He’s like a man driving around in circles refusing to stop for directions.

  • TIMEKEEPER

    You are a dope on the rope! She does not have to answer you or anyone else’s kooky demands. Like I said before, since when does God takes orders from you, or should I say George? A lot of people definitely think you are on George’s gravy train. Why? All you going to do is label her a fame*ho*. Like being the center of attention Signage **cough,cough** George!

  • signage

    @TIMEKEEPER: Okay, I am George. My first order of business as George is firing Stan Rosenfield. Stan, you’re fired. My second order of business as George is firing Keibler: Cray Cray, you’re fired. My third order of business is ordering a pizza and watching a movie. My fourth order of business is smiling at the fact that I can now live an authentic life and no longer promote trashy lowlifes. My fifth order of business is getting Einstein that new, engraved ipad he’s been wanting, with doggy earbuds. My sixth order of business is having fun. My seventh order of business is…

  • signage

    My seventh order of business as George is telling the truth about the publicity contract with Keibler and apologizing to my customers/fans and the world at large for manipulating them and for promoting such a lowlife and thereby harming women worldwide.

  • signage

    Oh but George is the one used to giving the orders. Anna is supposed to be a good little doormat and completely accept and praise every single thing he does. ROFL. Have a great night.

  • TIMEKEEPER

    He’s like a man driving around in circles refusing to stop for directions.

    — Oh my God! The girl has figured it out. Finally!!!

  • signage

    @TIMEKEEPER: I figured that much out a while back. LOL. Goodnight.

  • TIMEKEEPER

    Anna a doormat! Met the woman this past holiday season, and she is not a doormat. She waaaay above the pay grade required out of George’s women. Lol! Christ will come back with dreadlocks before they probably be together in reality. Lol! George likes women (as Anna lovingly put it) dumb as cow pies, sleazy, and peanut butter knees. (Likes an easy spread). Lol! Like it was said earlier, she has a special not stupid love for him. Lol!

  • signage

    @TIMEKEEPER: I said she is SUPPOSED to be a good little doormat. I didn’t say she is. As far as George is concerned, she’d quote Ricky Ricardo and tell him he’s got some ‘splaining to do.

  • signage

    When George publicly apologizes for manipulating the public and doing cultural harm to women worldwide by promoting the likes of Keibler, Anna might think about giving him the time of day. But George never admits he’s wrong, and he will never be with Anna. He prefers being right to being happy.

  • signage

    @Anna: You are not Anna.

  • signage

    Okay he doesn’t have to publicly apologize if he realizes that he’s harmed people with his dishonest, manipulative promotion of trash and he stops the dishonest, manipulative promotion of trash. But we all know that’s about as likely as Hellywood freezing over.

  • signage

    Anna was invented by people to give them hope and lift their spirits. People want and need to be uplifted, and Clooney’s life as portrayed by publicity tactics was depressing them, so people changed the story to give it meaning. It’s interesting that this should happen. I wonder if all myths are born in a similar manner. Something is unpleasant, so people create a story to make it meaningful and hopeful. Maybe 2012 hasn’t started yet, and we are still in 2011, that is my current story. 2012 will be special, and the trash will be left behind in 2011.
    Dr. Sanderson: Think carefully, Dowd. Didn’t you know somebody, sometime, someplace by the name of Harvey? Didn’t you ever know anybody by that name?
    Elwood P. Dowd: No, no, not one, Doctor. Maybe that’s why I always had such hopes for it.
    Elwood P. Dowd: Oh, you can’t miss him Mrs. Chumley. He’s a Pooka.
    Mrs. Hazel Chumley: A Pooka? Is that something new?
    Elwood P. Dowd: No. No, as I understand it that’s something very old.
    Wilson: Is he alone?
    Mr. Cracker, the Bartender: Well, there’s two schools of thought, sir.
    Anna is our Pooka.

  • TIMEKEEPER

    I gave a message from Anna so I never said was Anna. We all have figured out your mo and your agenda. Mind games are so overrated. Control is never the way to go. Anna is not yours, she is her own person unlike what you are trying to play here. This is your last hurrah, and the vacuum is shut off.

  • signage

    @TIMEKEEPER: Okay. I’m sorry.

  • signage

    I just felt the need to prepare Anna for another blow, as they seem to come when least expected and most hurtful. But hopefully there will be no such need. I wish Anna happiness, and I wish George happiness.

  • not existing, maybe dead

    First an accident, then dead, now an invented fairy tale to make him look more humanly……could be the script of a soap opera.
    At last they will have a wonderful date in a garden full of roses and then HIS fairy tale will begin.

  • Love the shoes

    Favorite cover EVER. I love it so much it’s my desktop pic. They look so good together. FYI, they were in Solaris together and so they are old friends.

  • signage

    @not existing, maybe dead: You lied. He’s with Keibler again.

  • signage

    Once again he slaps Anna in the face after leading her on and setting her up. He’s evil.

  • signage

    He clearly has no respect whatsoever for Anna, as he has blatantly disrespected her again.
