George Clooney confirms Brad Pitt’s claims he’s ‘the most handsome man alive’ and explains why they took a pay cut for their new movie


George Clooney and Brad Pitt have been friends for years. The two idols starred in the oceans movies together and starred side by side in the Coen Brothers comedy, Burn after reading. Historically, the two have had fun teasing each other non-stop and going back and forth pranking each other. Now Pitt has decided to flip the script and give Clooney a heck of a compliment.

In a recent interview with Vogue Magazine, the High-speed train The actor decided to pay his friend a rare compliment and claimed he thought George Clooney was the “most handsome man alive”. Clooney was asked to confirm or deny this notion when he chatted with Stephen Colbert on Late at night. While the ticket to paradise The star immediately became suspicious of the authenticity of the compliment made by his friend, he decided to accept the title. He joked:

I too think I am the most beautiful man in the world. No, I will say this. I will say that I think his first response was himself. And I think someone said, ‘Let’s do it again, don’t say it yourself.’ You know. But he’s a good friend and he and I are about to do a movie together.

Teasing is obviously fun, and these old friends are clearly there to support each other at the end of the day. A new Brad Pitt/George Clooney movie is also giving audiences plenty to get excited about. They have worked together many times over the years and have amazing chemistry. Additionally, it appears to be a big deal for the movie stars, as they both took pay cuts to get the movie released to theaters. Clooney went on to explain:

Sure [we took a cut]. …We did a Zoom show [to Colbert]. It’s not funny. …I will say it’s just not the same as having you all here. There are certain movies in particular, horror movies, comedies, that are really best with a group of people.)

Seeing a movie with an audience in a theater is a rare occurrence for non-blockbuster projects in the age of streaming. There must be visual elements or parts of this movie script that make it more impactful to see in theaters. Clooney has a history of backing unlikely theatrical releases that one might expect to experience on streaming. In his latest film, ticket to paradise, Clooney stars alongside Julia Roberts in a classic studio romantic comedy. It’s a movie that wouldn’t have such a huge box office draw without the involvement of two major movie stars. It looks like his next movie with Brad Pitt will follow.

The film would be a thriller produced by Apple Studios, after a bidding war for the project. It will be driven by Spider-Man: No Coming Home director Jon Watts and will follow two “lone wolf repair workers” who are tasked with the same job. Based on the film’s limited description, Pitt and Clooney will apparently be foils for each other. Hope we see oceans chemistry back in action. Additionally, the two movie stars will be the producers of the project under their personal production companies: Smokehouse Pictures and Plan B Entertainment.
