George Clooney Talks Brad Pitt Friendship with THR

George Clooney Talks Brad Pitt Friendship with THR

George Clooney takes the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 50-year-old actor had to share:

On alcohol: “I drink at times too much. I do enjoy drinking, and there have been times in my life when it’s crossed the line from being fun to having to drink late at night for absolutely no reason. So what I do is, I stop. I haven’t had a drink since New Year’s Eve.”

On his friendship with Brad Pitt: “Brad is one of the great guys. We’re good friends, but it’s different from what people think, meaning we don’t spend a lot of time together. He has been to my home in Como; we motorcycle together. But until recently, I hadn’t seen Brad in a year.”

    He can “thank” Angelina Jolie for losing touch with his best friend…

    Of course Angelina absorbs Brad

    George Clooney, the best PR role model for many Hollywood stars who want to know how it’s done.
    He is always absolutely honest, has nothing to defend, and comes across as slightly self-deprecating. And he isn’t even the greatest actor.
    The only weakness in his image is his playboy thing, which he has also handled very well.
    Flies just under the radar but gets enough PR without ever looking like he ever tries.

    That woman lives in a jail. Without friends or family. And ´she makes Brad to live the same way. At least he works more than her. There is definitive something wrong with her. I remember Brad at Golden Globes giving a interview to Ryan S. And Angelina was rushing to be there, like she was paniked. And her aggressive talking wasn´t that appropriate. I can understand that George can´t spend so much time him anymore. RememberAngelina trying hysteric to be the middlepoint there.

    Brad Pitt is so cool. I’d like to see either of the two win the Oscar but I’m all but certain it will go to Jean Judardin.

    George is a playboy and Brad is a family man. Brad doesn’t want to waste his time partying with George and his female friends. He rather spend his time with his family…that’s the fact. Silly bitter people always try to say negative things about Angelina. Did you know, Angelina is a goddess and she owns you?

    MummyDi Says:

    @rachel: I’m not jealous of Angelina because I don’t know her. She’s living in another world. But, of course, I’m not going to be her slave and she my goddess because as I said before I don’t know her and not almost everyone says nice things about her. So I have to deduce which is difficult.

    Well NO one will pay so much attention to Angelina if she is wasn´t with Brad. I mean until then No one cared for her.

    he and Aniston should get together cause they always mention Brad on every (at least) interview.

    LOL.. since when was George Clooney Brad’s best friend.

    Brad has a tight group of friends. George has never been one of them. They like each other. Joke around. But think.. George said Brad pranked him on the OCEAN set. how freaking love ago was that. George hangs with Cindy and Randy. Brad/Angie have 6 children. I don’t see them leaving their kids with sitters to go and hang on a beach with George. Brad has a family. And has said on so many occasions that he likes being with his family.

    That is what grown up do George. The don’t play boy games with friends forever. Brad is a GAM and is living the life he said years ago that he wanted. Why is George not mentioning Matt or Don or the other guys. Why in the world does he talk all the time about Brad. I need to reread Brad’s interview in THR.. doubt he spent much time on George.
    George has some unhealthy love for Brad.. and sorry George. Brad will never ever return those feelings. YOU George are sounding creepy now. Funny he should be talking about Randy and Cindy. They are together all the time. That is what I find funny.

    @Green: ROFL. You just know whoever wrote that was howling with ironic laughter. He has been campaigning like crazy for the Oscar, even renting a d-list hooker for publicity. Now that it’s backfiring on him, maybe he will stop doing such trashy publicity stunts in the future.

    signage Says:

    “The only weakness in his image is his playboy thing, which he has also handled very well.”
    He doesn’t have an image as a playboy. He has an image as a desperate John who rents hookers for publicity. A true playboy attracts desirable, classy women who aren’t for sale, and when was the last time, if ever, Clooney was with one of those? His publicity and the trashy persona they’ve created is a giant Fail.

    Wow!! am I the only person who knows nothing about George or
    his life style?? certainly not his friendship with Brad, and most of
    all.. Do-Not give a.. grunt!! more power to you Clooney, here’s to my

    You are so right, Angie is a goddess. I love me some Angelina.

    @Curious George: #12

    He was not talking negatively about Brad. He just said Brad is a friend who he does not get to see too often. Many friends go long periods of time without seeing each other.

    Frozoid Says:

    No one’s commenting her on the more important issue: his drinking.

    Many a time my friends and I have commented at how soused Clooney has been at awards shows.. You can tell he likes to tipple. Sounds like he thinks he’s got a wee bit of a drinking problem. Good for him for stopping.

    Of course George won’t talk about Stacy there is nothing to talk about. Everybody knows she is going to be gone right after the Oscars. If George was really smart he would dump her before then he just looks like a small and very old man next to Oscar date Barbie. Stacy didn’t even get to go to the BAFTA’s and no Valentines Day with George. I do think George and Brad are friends but not BFF’s in anyway. With or without Angelina they two different kinds of men. George REALLY wants this Oscar doesn’t he? Would have been so much smarter doing it on his own without the cheerleader bugging everyone for jobs and snaps to prove she was in the same room with them. George get a girl with some class and dress sense would good too.

    You are terrible Signage.
    George is a good man.

    Who are you to make insinuations about a man’s private life.

    He without sin cast the first stone. (I guess that’s all of you)
    That’s why you feel free to judge, right Signage?

    signage Says:

    @blue sky: I haven’t said a single thing about his private life. I have posted about his idiotic publicity people and the trashy public persona they have created. But you knew that, right, Cray Cray? Why don’t you go post some more lies on your blog complete with pics of your impostor dog.

    blue sky Says:

    Can I have the link to my blog, LOL!!

    I gave you a thumbs up :) for calling me Cray.
    In God’s eye she is riding in the same boat as you.

    Hum, I wonder where that boat is heading
