Clooney Honored by Hollywood Stars

16 October 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney was toasted by a host of fellow stars when he received the 2006 American Cinematheque Award in Beverly Hills on Friday. The lavish event, which was held to raise money for film-making charity American Cinematique, was attended by director Oliver Stone and actors Julia Roberts, Christian Slater, Salma Hayek, Geoffrey Rush and Lindsay Lohan. They paid tribute to the 45-year-old, whose film credits include Good Night, And Good Luck, Syriana and Ocean's Eleven. Slater said, "There's no man probably more worthy of getting some awards. He's a great artist, great director, and a phenomenal humanitarian. I think he serves as a great example to other actors, myself included." Clooney said of the event: "Basically, what it is, really, is a bunch of your friends who are gonna roast the hell out of you. But when it's done, you're raising money to help American Cinematheque, which actually does some great things." »

28 September 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney has reportedly reconciled his romance with fellow Oscar winner Renee Zellweger.

Website PageSix.com reports Clooney and Zellweger met at the Tower Bar restaurant in Los Angeles' Sunset Tower Hotel on Sunday for a romantic dinner. According to onlookers, the pair "cuddled, held hands and then slow danced to the piano music." Zellweger annulled her brief marriage to country singer Kenny Chesney in December. »

Gill builds Film Department

27 August 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Mark Gill, who helped found Warner Independent Pictures three years ago and served as its first president until stepping down in May, is in the midst of raising $200 million to launch his own film company. According to people familiar with Gill's plans, investment bank Allen & Co. has been retained to obtain the necessary funds through a combination of debt and equity financing. Several investors have already shown an interest in the new company, which Gill and partner Neil Sacker have dubbed the Film Department. At WIP, Gill's successes included the Oscar-winning documentary March of the Penguin and George Clooney's Good Night, and Good Luck, though insiders said Gill's clashes with top brass at Warners eventually led to him being replaced three months ago by Polly Cohen. Gill retained his presence at the Warners lot by way of a two-year, first-look production deal that observers hadn't expected would last given Gill's desire to head his own company. »

Clooney Attacks "Timid" Democrats

14 March 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Outspoken Hollywood star George Clooney has blasted the Us Democrat party for failing to voice opposition in the run up to the Iraq war. The actor and director, who has been branded unpatriotic in some quarters for his overtly political projects Syriana and Good Night, And Good Luck, made the tirade via a posting on The Huffington Post blog site. He singled out party leaders for being afraid to attract negative press, or appear unfaithful to their country. He writes, "The fear of (being) criticized can be paralyzing. Just look at the way so many Democrats caved in the run up to the war. In 2003, a lot of us were saying, 'Where is the link between Saddam (Hussein) and (Osama) Bin Laden? What does Iraq have to do with 9/11?' We have to agree that it's not unpatriotic to hold our leaders accountable and to speak out." »

Lucas: "The Blockbuster Is Dead"

7 March 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie mogul George Lucas predicts Hollywood will soon start shifting away from mega-budget blockbusters in favor of making more independent films for less money. Alongside Steven Spielberg, Star Wars creator Lucas is cited as being chiefly responsible for the blockbuster phenomenon that has gripped the movie industry for the last three decades. But he now believes big-budget films can no longer be profitable and are going out of fashion, as evidenced by this year's Academy Award nominees, including independent movies Crash and Good Night, And Good Luck. Lucas tells the New York Daily News, "The market forces that exist today make it unrealistic to spend $200 million on a movie. Those movies can't make their money back anymore. Look at what happened with King Kong. I think it's great that the major Oscar nominations have gone to independent films. Is that good for the business? No - it's bad for the business. But movie-making isn't about business. It's about art. In the future, almost everything that gets shown in theaters will be indie movies. I predict that by 2025 the average movie will cost only $15 million." »

Ledger Skeptical About Oscar Win

17 February 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Heath Ledger is convinced he won't win the Best Actor Oscar next month, because the other nominees are too good. The Australian actor - nominated for his role in Brokeback Mountain - is up against Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote), Joaquin Phoenix (Walk The Line), Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow) and David Strathairn (Good Night, And Good Luck). He said at the presentation of his movie Candy at the Berlin International Film Festival Wednesday, "There are so many great actors who are nominated and who all deserve the award. Let's wait and see who will win. Of course, I'm proud to be nominated. But it's already great to be involved in a movie that wins so many prizes and is received so well." »

Clooney, Stewart Poke Fun at Cheney

15 February 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar-nominee George Clooney and awards host Jon Stewart have publicly mocked US Vice President Dick Cheney during a star-studded Academy Awards lunch. Clooney, renowned for his opposition to the Bush administration, joked that Cheney had initially invited him to the hunting trip, at which he accidentally shot a colleague. And he told the Beverly Hills audience on Monday that he planned to return Cheney's generosity by bringing him along to the Academy Awards next month. He says, "I'm bringing Dick Cheney as my date. It's so nice - he called me up and wanted me to go hunting so I invited him to be my (Oscar) date. I don't know if that's overly political." Oscar producer Gil Cates also promised the 116 nominees attending the lunch that the show's host, Jon Stewart, would mention the shooting incident again during the ceremony. He said, "Jon told me that part of the show that night will have him talking about how Cheney stands by the shooting and he would do it again, and that the guy was wrong, he obviously shouldn't have been there." Clooney has been named in three Academy Award categories, including Best Director for his efforts with the politically-charged Good Night, And Good Luck. »
