Julia Roberts Prefers Ensemble Casts

19 December 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood actress Julia Roberts prefers to work as part of an ensemble cast, because she feels less pressure for the movie to perform well at the box office. The Oscar-winning actress has appeared in a string of films filled with big-name casts - including Ocean's Eleven, America's Sweethearts and her latest effort Mona Lisa Smile - since she last headlined with 2000's Erin Brockovich. And Julia puts her love of ensemble casts down to enjoyment, and less work. The 36-year-old says, "It's just more fun, I think. It's more fun and less work. These are the things I strive for in life. But it's really quite selfish, because their genius makes me look like a genius, so it's not like I'm really giving back." But the trial of working with younger actresses including Julia Stiles, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst on Mona Lisa seems to have taken its toll on Julia's public persona. She says, "This is what I got asked yesterday: 'What was it like working with all these young, beautiful girls and having to get up every day and look at yourself in the mirror? Does that make you consider plastic surgery?' I was just so insulted. She was not having her best day either, let me tell you. I get asked a lot of insulting questions. I think they're just thoughtless." »

Clooney Lines Up Magnum Movie Role?

21 November 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney will reportedly play TV private investigator Magnum PI in a big screen version of the 80s hit show. Pals of the actor say Clooney is desperate to take on the role made famous on the small screen by Tom Selleck between 1980 and 1988. They claim the mustachioed Magnum completes a "holy trinity" of roles Clooney has secretly coveted; "He's wanted to play three characters since he started acting - Danny Ocean in Ocean's Eleven, Hannibal in the A-Team and Magnum. He's had the A-Team movie in the works for a while now, so he's been chasing this one really hard." Hollywood sources say the film, which will begin shooting next year, will feature the brand new $800,000 Ferrari Enzo sports car in place of Magnum's classic Ferrari 308 Gts. But the identities of who will play Magnum's side-kicks Theodore 'TC' Calvin, Orville 'Rick' Wright and Jonathan Quayle Higgins III - played by Roger E Mosley, Larry Manetti and John Hillerman in the TV original - are being kept top secret. Manetti recently slammed plans to recreate the show without its original cast as "an outrage". »

Bungling Burglars Ruin Clooney's Italian Getaway

9 September 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie hunk George Clooney grew so sick of bungling burglars attempting to steal an ancient safe from his Italian home, he wrapped a bow around it and put it in his yard. Nosy paparazzi and burglars have wrecked the peace and quiet at his Lake Como villa where Clooney has been relaxing this summer. The actor expected photographers to follow him there, but had no idea he'd become the target of inept burglars too. He explains, "These idiots came in, cased the joint, and clearly decided , 'We'll need more people.' It was like Ocean's Eleven." The burglars then made two failed attempts to make off with the safe, which was abandoned by the previous owners of the property, prompting the actor to call the local police. He adds, "They were doing everything they could to steal this f**king safe. So we put a giant red bow on it and left a note saying, 'Come and get it, you dumb f**ks.'" »

Clooney's Krista Cover-Up

5 September 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

George Clooney complained this week that his new home in Italy has prevented him from finding a girlfriend - but he forgot to mention his old flame stayed with him all summer. The suave star claimed his new summer retreat on the banks Lake Como has ruptured his private life, as the intense interest shown in him by Europe's paparazzi photographers made it impossible to romance any potential girlfriends. However, his former lover Krista Allen - who dated Clooney for several months after appearing in his directorial debut Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind last year - has revealed she has spent the summer with the Ocean's Eleven actor.

Clooney Stumped by His Sex Appeal

8 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Lazy George Clooney is constantly amazed that he's considered sexy when women have to work so much harder to look good. The Ocean's Eleven star admits he takes little care over his appearance - and he's thankful for being a man, because women in Hollywood are expected to dress to a much higher standard. Gorgeous George explains, "I don't care a lot about my looks, I don't even have a personal stylist. It is unmanly and unsexy if you always worry about it. If you are a man, you should be lucky that you are allowed to age in dignity. I don't use any make-up in films and I don't wear any clothes that don't suit me. I am 42, and I want to be treated like an adult. I have no idea why everyone always finds me so great. For years, I have worn the same old tuxedo and the same black shoes to all events. When women wear the same outfit twice, they are practically lynched. But for me, everyone cheered and said it was classic." However, the Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind star has no qualms about women fussing over their appearances though. He adds, "Great women belong in great clothes. I have the advantage of being a man. I am allowed to just wear my white shirts and jeans. I can become gray, bald or wrinkled, but nobody is going to think, 'Lord, what does he look like.'" »

Clooney's Cameo Conflict

10 July 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

George Clooney almost landed in a legal battle with movie studios Dimension Films over a cameo appearance he makes in the new Spy Kids sequel. The Ocean's Eleven actor was reportedly angry film makers tried to overplay his brief appearance in trailers for Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, which stars Antonio Banderas and Sylvester Stallone. A source tells American gossip site The Scoop, "He has a cameo in the movie, but he didn't want his image used in the previews. He said it was inappropriate and cheesy to overplay his very short appearance in the movie. Dimension was begging him but he was adamant. So lawyers were called in." It seems the matter has been resolved amicably - representatives for both parties insist the actor will appear in the trailers with his full approval. »

Men Too Scared to Date Renee

20 March 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

She may been Hollywood hottest female star but Renee Zellweger is having problems finding a man brave enough to ask her out. The gorgeous Oscar nominee has been searching for a suitable beau since her split from Ocean's Eleven heart-throb George Clooney - but men are too scared of her celebrity to even try to get a date. And she puts the problem down to her incredible rise to fame. Complaining that as an unknown she had no trouble in attracting the men. She laments, "Now, nobody asks. I don't know why. I don't say, 'Excuse me, I was wondering, has it crossed your mind to invite me to lunch? And if not, why not?'. I really don't meet people. And when I do, they don't really talk about normal stuff." But, the Bridget Jones' Diary sweetheart admits she is also reluctant to make the first move. She says, "I can't do that, go to a bar, meet a guy, get his number, and see what happens." »

Drew Sought Solace from George

11 March 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Drew Barrymore recovered from her marriage break up with madcap comedian Tom Green thanks to help from Hollywood hunk George Clooney. The actress started work on the film Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind with Clooney just after the pair split, and found the Ocean's Eleven star to be the perfect counselor. Former hellraising child star Barrymore married Green on July 7 but the couple filed for divorce just five months later. She says, "It was weird. I wasn't in great shape emotionally but I was lucky I had George to talk to during filming. He would give me a wink once in a while to check out how I was doing - that meant as much to me as anything else." But she insists her short-lived marriage to Green wasn't all bad, saying, "I think I realized that we had different ideas about our life together before we got married. I probably didn't commit myself to being with Tom as much as he liked because I was working a lot. But I still appreciate our time together and I feel bad that things didn't work out." »

Brad and Nicole Movie Worries Jealous Jen

27 February 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Friends beauty Jennifer Aniston is said to be fuming at the prospect of her husband Brad Pitt making a movie with sexy Nicole Kidman. The Hours star has recently signed up to star in film Mr. And Mrs. Smith alongside the Ocean's Eleven hunk - amid rumors that Jennifer and Brad's three-year marriage is under great strain. According to British newspaper The Sun, worried Jen has told friends, "This is the last thing I need, my husband spending lots of time alone filming with her." BAFTA award-winning Kidman was recently linked with her Cold Mountain co-star Jude Law, after it was revealed that his marriage to Sadie Frost was hitting the rocks. They both denied an affair - but this does not seem to be stemming Jennifer's concerns, as she reportedly asked her husband not to take the part. A source tells The Sun, "She's worrying herself sick and given recent events you can't blame her. Nicole is irresistible to her leading men. Jude seemed to become besotted and so did Ewan McGregor when they filmed Moulin Rouge together. Jennifer is very wary about Nicole. A lot of women in Hollywood are. Nicole is quite simply a man's woman. Men simply adore her." »

Brad Pitt Is a Real-life Hero

25 February 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sexy Brad Pitt has proved it's not just in movies where he's an action hero - he leapt in front of a speeding car to save a woman's life. The Oceans Eleven hunk was having a cigarette on the pavement outside Dan Tana's Italian restaurant in Los Angeles on Sunday, when he saw a sports car jump the curb and hurtle towards a female pedestrian. Plucky Brad then pushed the woman out of the way before the wayward driver plowed into her. The woman said at the scene, "I'm so happy to be alive - and even happier it was you that saved me." However, modest Brad - whose wife Jennifer Aniston saved a stranger from choking last year - just said, "I'm glad to be of service." The driver of the car claimed he took his eyes off the road while searching his glove box. No one was hurt in the incident. »

Aging Makes Clooney Consider Full-Time Directing

17 February 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood hunk George Clooney is starting to consider a full-time career as a movie director - because he doesn't believe he'll stay good looking enough to keep on acting. The Ocean's Eleven star, who stepped behind the camera for his new flick Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, admits that he'll soon have to seriously consider life as a filmmaker when his looks begin to fade. He says, "Eventually, my looks will fall apart and I'll have to give up. You direct to have some control over your career when people say, 'I don't want to see you act anymore.'" The 41-year-old screen star adds, "Paul Newman is acting almost into his 80s, but name another one. Robert Duvall? Fine. But he's Robert Duvall! He did To Kill A Mockingbird. I did Batman & Robin. He did Network. I did Battle Of The Network Stars. There is a difference." »
