It goes without saying that Leonardo DiCaprio is a hit with the ladies - especially ladies who are probably tall, are probably blond, and have probably walked a runway. Over the years, the Oscar winner has romanced Hollywood actresses, Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girls, and Victoria's Secret catwalk queens, all while trying to prove that he's just a regular guy who loves riding bikes around the city, texting his famous friends with club recommendations, and hitting the vape every once in a while. While plenty of people pine for the love that Leo had with Bff Kate Winslet in Titanic (and sort of wish that they would get together Irl), the 41-year-old isn't really doing anything wrong with sowing his oats - just look at his fellow former Hollywood bachelor George Clooney, who definitely landed a catch when he married wife Amal in 2014. Leo himself revealed in an interview last »

If you’ve ever heard the term “Hollywood elite” used as an insult, it likely came from a Republican politician. George Clooney takes issue with that characterization in a new Canal+ interview, noting that Donald Trump and his advisor Steve Bannon fit the term as well as anyone. “Donald Trump has 22 acting credits,” the actor says. “He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist.”

Trump has made a number of cameos in movies and television shows dating back decades, increasing his profile further with “The Apprentice” and “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Bannon, meanwhile, has produced a number of films of his own — and unsuccessfully tried to make several more. “Steve Bannon is a failed film writer,” Clooney says of former Breitbart editor, whose unrealized projects include a Shakespearean rap movie about the L. »

Ever since it became clear that none of the good celebrities were ever going to support his pathetic, ego-driven political aspirations, Donald Trump has railed against the so-called Hollywood elite who supposedly don’t understand the common man the way he does. The problem with this is that Trump may live in a golden tower in Manhattan instead of in a gated compound in California, but he’s just as much a member of the Hollywood elite as anyone else is—at least according to George Clooney, who probably does have the authority to determine stuff like that.
In an interview with Canal+ (via Vulture), Clooney notes that Trump has 22 acting credits and collects $120,000 a year from his Screen Actors Guild pension fund, which would make anyone a member of the Hollywood elite. Of course, Trump being a massive hypocrite has never really been up for debate ...

Jordan Peele has just signed a first-look deal with Sonar Entertainment, Variety has learned.
The agreement encompasses all content for television, including digital. The news comes just ahead of the premiere of Peele’s feature directorial debut with horror film “Get Out,” which is already earning rave reviews. “Blending race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect, this bombshell social critique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless,” Variety‘s Peter Debruge writes.
“Jordan Peele is one of the brightest stars in our business — a true hyphenate — actor, writer, producer and director. We are excited to partner with him and Monkeypaw,” said Sonar CEO Thomas Lesinski. “This collaboration aligns perfectly with Sonar’s vision for developing, producing and distributing premium programming with the highest profile talent for a broad, global »

George Clooney has a counter-argument for those who believe celebrities shouldn’t speak out about politics — that President Donald Trump and chief strategist Steve Bannon are also members of the so-called Hollywood elite.
In a recent interview with French news network Canal+ ahead of the Caesar Awards — France’s equivalent of the Oscars, where he’s set to receive an honorary award — Clooney pointed out the hypocrisy of Trump denouncing Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech earlier this year, in which she called out the president for mocking a reporter »

George Clooney was once one of Hollywood's hottest bachelors, who swore he would never get married again (he was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993). That is, until Amal Alamuddin (now Amal Clooney) came along. George first laid eyes on the human rights attorney at his home in Lake Como, Italy, in 2013. During a previous appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, the 55-year-old actor revealed, "We met in Lake Como. She was a friend of a friend who came to visit and then I chased her for many months, calling and writing, those kinds of things." George also admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that "from the minute we met, we just sort of felt like we were going to be together." He ended up proposing six months later, and even though he had it all planned out, it ended up being "one of those horrible moments," he told Ellen. »

Was that wrong? Should he not have done that? “Seinfeld” alum Jason Alexander found himself devoting part of his week to fending off criticism, after commenting on the fact that newly tapped national security adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster once apparently referenced Alexander’s “Seinfeld” character George Costanza. The heated back-and-forth began Monday, when it was pointed out to Alexander on Twitter that McMaster once apparently referred to targeting enemies with bombing as the military equivalent of “George Costanza in ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘leave on an up note’ — just go in, do a lot of damage, and leave.” Also Read: George Clooney Calls President. »

George Clooney called President Trump and his chief strategist Steve Bannon “Hollywood elitists” in an interview with French journalist Laurent Weil. Clooney did the interview ahead of France’s Cesar Awards on Friday, where he will receive an honorary award.
As part of the 13-minute-long interview, Clooney addressed Meryl Streep’s political speech at the Golden Globes that sparked outrage from certain right-wing political factions. Trump reacted by tweeting that she is “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.”
“There’s a really interesting argument, this is the part that makes you a little crazy,” Clooney said. “When Meryl spoke, everyone on that one side was, ‘Well that’s elitist Hollywood speaking.’ Donald Trump has 22 acting credits in television. He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist.”
Clooney went on to call out Bannon’s Hollywood ties as well.

George Clooney has a response to people who think celebrities shouldn’t talk politics, citing Donald Trump’s hypocrisy in denouncing Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech earlier this year. “When Meryl spoke, everyone on that one side was, ‘Well that’s elitist Hollywood speaking,'” Clooney said in an interview with the French news network Canal+. “Donald Trump has 22 acting credits in television… He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist.” Previous to his run for president, Trump was the host of NBC’s “The Apprentice” and “The Celebrity Apprentice.” He »

Amal Clooney and husband George, an actor, are expecting twins in June, which is why the human rights attorney is nixing her usual travel plans to countries that might be perceived as dangerous. She recently represented human-trafficking survivor Nadia Murad in her efforts against Isis, for example, which is exactly the kind of risky trip that George opened up about during an interview with Paris Match magazine. "We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger," he said. "I won't go to South Sudan anymore or the Congo, Amal will no longer go to Iraq and she'll avoid places where she knows she isn't welcome." Despite the adorable couple's choice to scale back on the places they're now willing to travel, George assured the magazine that they still plan on globetrotting once their kids are born. "We have the chance to live between three countries: Italy, America, and England, »

Wow. I never thought I’d miss that little ditty. Granted, whenever that tune consumes my brainpan it’s the version recorded by The Who and not the one from the ancient teevee series. I find myself humming Neal Hefti’s remarkably enduring theme song every time a new Batman movie screws up. Yup, this means I’ve been humming it a lot lately.
The latest batastrophe – as of this writing – came down last week when the director of the upcoming release The Batman quit the picture. That’s a big problem, as he is also the co-writer of the movie… and, oh yeah, also its star.
Arguably worse, the top choice for replacing director Ben Affleck, Matthew George Reeves (no relation to anybody who starred as Superman), quickly dropped out of the negotiations. One is reminded their March 16, 2018 release, »

Months before they're born, George and Amal Clooney's twins are already having a big impact on their lives.
In an interview with French outlet Paris Match on Tuesday, the 55-year-old actor opened up about expecting the twins in late spring, and admitted that he and Amal have been considerably more cautious in anticipation of their arrival.

"How can we not be anxious when faced with this immense responsibility? To give birth to a child in this world -- nevermind two! We are very happy, very excited, but also a bit nervous, it's normal," he shared.
Something not quite normal about the couple, however, is Amal's line of work as an international human rights lawyer, which means frequently traveling to dangerous destinations. The 39-year-old attorney has even recently taken on Isis on behalf of her client, Nadia Murad, a human trafficking survivor.

Buckle up George Clooney because you're in for one unforgettable ride. As the Hollywood star and his wife Amal Clooney prepare to welcome twins, the dad-to-be is already thinking about some lifestyle changes he will face in the months ahead. Yes, the sleep schedule may change. And yes, shopping habits will now include diapers and pacifiers. But in addition, the actor may not be traveling all around the world like he once used to. "We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger," George shared in Paris Match number 3536. "I will not go to South Sudan anymore and in the Congo, Amal will no longer go to Iraq and she will avoid places where she knows she is not »
The Oscars celebrating the best of 2005 are probably among the most controversial and divisive on record. For it was Paul Haggis’s race-based ensemble drama Crash that received the Best Picture trophy, beating the favourite to win Brokeback Mountain, and spending every minute since its win being repeatedly listed as among the worst films to win the Oscar for Best Picture.
Now why Brokeback Mountain lost to what some regard as a mediocre film, we don’t fully know, with some accusing the Academy of homophobia in their decision-making or bowing to pressures from conservative groups horrified by the idea that some cowboys might have been gay.
However, I would argue that while Brokeback Mountain was perhaps deserving of the win, I feel that it was not the only contender more »

George Clooney is going to be one protective dad.
The actor, 55, and his wife Amal, 39, are expecting twins in late spring — a fact that has made Clooney reconsider some of his more adventurous travels.
Speaking to the French outlet Paris Match, the actor admits the couple is being more cautious as they await the arrival of their children.

Have you ever wondered why a younger celebrity like Adam Levine was awarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame before, say, Denzel Washington? Or Julia Roberts? Even George Clooney doesn't have a star. It turns out there's a very interesting but simple reason. Although you might assume getting a star is an honor, it actually involves a detailed application process that ends with the celebrities paying for the stars themselves - and it's not cheap. Each year, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce narrows down a list of about 20 celebrities who will receive a star, but the process starts way before that. A celebrity first has to be nominated by someone - their publicist, or even a fan wealthy enough to sponsor their star, for instance - and then the celebrity must consent to the nomination. This entails signing a form saying that they not only want the »

It's safe to say Amal Clooney's amazing style is only getting better with pregnancy.
The 39-year-old human rights lawyer was spotted out and about in London, England, on Tuesday, covering up her baby bump with a floor-length, bright red coat. She wore a gray minidress with tights underneath, and finished off the fashionable look with black motorcycle ankle boots.

Earlier this month, The Talk's Julie Chen announced Amal and husband George Clooney are expecting twins. The actor, 55, spoke about becoming a father for the first time during his interview with French film journalist Laurent Weil on the program Rencontres de Cinema, which aired on Sunday.
"We are really happy and really excited," the Oscar winner said with a big smile. "It's going to be an adventure."
"We've sort of embraced it all… with arms wide open," he added about him and his wife's current attitude.
