George Clooney Confesses Dirty Make-Up Secrets

11 December 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie star George Clooney has no patience spending hours sitting in a make-up chair. The star devised his own short-cut technique for creating the skanky look of an escaped convict in the upcoming Coen Brothers film, O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) He describes the process, "I would just take dirt, Mississippi dirt and rub it on my face before we'd go and do the scene. Make-up chairs make me crazy and I don't really like them, plus you wanna just look dirty anyway, so it's perfect. You know I did it in Three Kings (1999) where I'd just pick up dust and rub it in my face and just go. There's something really mechanical looking when someone comes over and gives you a little patch of dirt here and a match there. It sort of takes all the fun out of it. Now I get to roll around in the dirt and it's pretty fun not having to grow up so you don't want to have to spend time in the make-up chair." The 39 year old star couldn't escape showing his age in his beard, but thought of a clever make-up technique to remedy that as well. He says, "I had a big whole patch of grey in my beard so I'd take a ball point pen, a Bic ball point pen and just fill it in!" »

George Clooney's Singing Career Dubbed Out

24 October 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

George Clooney has been denied a shot at a singing career - as his real-life voice was dubbed out from new movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) The hunky star happily sang in the Coen Brothers film - only to find director Joel Coen decided to replace his dulcet tones with a professional singer. Joel says, "We had no problem getting him to sing, but we just don't get to hear him do any of it!" However, Clooney believes it won't be long until his singing voice is heard all over the world. He says, "It's probably streaming around on the Internet as we speak!" »

Coen Brothers Talk About Editing Alias

18 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar-nominated film editor RODERICK JAYNES should be a happy man - but he only exists in the COEN brothers' imaginations. The brothers favourites at Cannes O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), say they invented the character, because they do their editing themselves, and get sick of seeing their own names. Joel Coen says, "How many times on one movie can you write the names, Joel and Ethan Coen? It got tiring, so we invented someone." Ethan says it was problematic when Roderick was nominated for an Oscar for Fargo (1996). He explains, "They don't let you go up and accept on behalf of anybody else now. We asked ahead of time, but they weren't very sympathetic. They weren't amused." »
