The Ocean's Thirteen star has long shunned social media but she recently took a liking to Twitter and created her own profile to expand her inner circle.

Happy 50th Birthday: George Clooney Is a True Star & Class Act At 50

May 6th, 2011 8:30am EDT
George Clooney
“It's not about an opening weekend,” George Clooney once mused. “It's about a career, building a set of films you're proud of. Period.” 50 years into his life, mission accomplished. ...And a whole lot more besides.

Hollywood’s often accused of being superficial, debauched, stupid. Ironically, the king of the town is none of these things. George Clooney is a welcome rarity. In so many ways he’s above Hollywood - the tabloid scandals, the Botox, the surface nothingness. For all Clooney’s partying, good looks and joking around, there’s no hiding the fact he’s a proper grown up. The man has de...

Brad Pitt has mocked rumors about his close pal George Clooney's sexuality, by joking he won't marry Angelina Jolie until his Ocean's Thirteen co-star can legally tie the knot with his "partner."

There's a spike in the number of movies premiering with six coming out this week, two of which are sequels. One of those sequels is a movie I've been anticipating since I heard it was in development.

Mark Wahlberg
Actor Mark Wahlberg is relieved he turned down the opportunity to star in George Clooney's Ocean's movie franchise, because the films all "sucked".

The Boogie Nights star was initially approached to play the part of Linus Caldwell - a role that eventually went to Matt Damon - in Ocean's Eleven, but he decided against joining Clooney and pal Brad Pitt for the casino heist movie. And, even though two of his own projects turned out to be flops, he insists anything would have been better than having to pretend he enjoyed making Ocean's Eleven.

He says, "It was well worth it! The sec...

The Three Best & Worst Films Starring George Clooney

George Clooney in Syriana
George Clooney is a strange player in the entertainment world. While widely renowned as an A-list movie star with universal sex appeal, Clooney's film career isn't as rife with blockbuster hits as one may think.

He does have the fashionably discredited, and thusly underrated, Ocean's series, but today's Cary Grant has only two films, The Perfect Storm and Batman and Robin, that grossed over $100 million domestically. The majority of his films are what one might call prestige films - vehicles to exhibit his considerable acting and directing talent. This is possibly because his star was...

George Clooney
We put a lot of thought into who should make it into the "Top 10 Entertainers Of The Year" list of 2007, and it caused quite the debate among our friends and colleagues, particularly over who should occupy the top spot. Take a look:

10. The Cast of High School Musical

The group that made "High School Musical" a phenomenon went through a lot in 2007. They rocketed from nobodys to tabloid fixations (hello, Zac Efron), from adorable, dimple-cheeked Hilary Duff's in-the-making to sex symbols (naked photos of Vannessa Hudgens, anyone?). The point is, these singing and dancing young actors...

George Clooney enjoyed a cheeky festive season while at college - he once stole his neighbor's prized Christmas tree.

The Ocean's Thirteen star, 46, has fond memories of his student days, and recalls his most memorable Christmas one year, when he took revenge on his next-door neighbor for terrorizing his pet dog.

He says, "Our neighbor was so proud of his garden, so when my dog got into it, he shot its butt full of pellets. Fortunately the dog didn't die. But in the middle of the neighbor's garden was a manicured fir tree, so one Christmas Eve, I sawed it down and put it up in o...

Rupert Everett Is Bitter

Rupert Everett
British actor Rupert Everett has launched a scathing attack on Hollywood legends Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, branding them "tragic parodies" of the icons they once were.

The 48-year-old insists the film industry has deteriorated into shallow, celebrity-obsessed "trash" - and blames its biggest players for perpetuating the trend.

He says, "De Niro, (Robert) Redford, (Diane) Keaton, (Woody) Allen, Pacino - they're all just tragic parodies of themselves. Al Pacino looks like a mad old freak now. I say give it a rest, or go and do some serious stuff."

Actor George Clooney will make a second awareness-raising trip to the war-torn Darfur region of Sudan next month. The 46-year-old hopes his celebrity status will draw more attention to the appalling conditions in the area as he tours the most affected areas of the crisis.

Clooney says, "I'm not a politician, so the reason I go is to focus attention there. We're going to try to get deeper into Darfur, try to get some cameras in to the tougher camps and have conversations. That's basically all I can do. If you put famous people in front of very ugly sites, people will watch."
