George Clooney In Venice (Tilda Swinton Rules)

August 31st, 2007 // 9 Comments

George Clooney and his grizzled yet fine ass attended the 75th Venice Film Festival and shilled his new flick “Michael Clayton”. I saw the trailer for this one, and it looked terribly boring until Tilda Swinton popped up. I could watch Tilda Swinton peel potatoes. She could show me paint samples and I’d be enthralled. She could even talk about the drudgery of filming “High School Musical 2″ and I’d be rapt and offer to freshen her drink.

In ‘Michael Clayton’ — headed into theaters in October — Clooney plays an in-house “fixer” at one of the largest corporate law firms in New York City. Known as “The Janitor” by his colleagues, his job is to clean up the messes of the wealthy clients represented by his employer — the law firm of Kenner, Bach & Ledeen. Burnt out and discontented in his job, Clayton doesn’t have the option of quitting, because a divorce, a gambling habit and a failed business venture have left him without funds.

Like I said, stifle your yawn. But Tilda Swinton! Remember that flick when her gay son accidentally killed his new lover and the guy from “ER” was blackmailing her ass and she had to run around trying to cover everything up? That’s a hot movie. Tilda’s so boss. I know this post was supposed to be about Clooney but just enjoy the pictures of him and think about how cool Tilda Swinton is. And how much taller she is then him. Shit, she could break him over her knee and do some more hot films without batting an eyelash.

    Tilda’s tremendous, and I love the Clooney. He’s a hawt daddy.

    Yet oddly in his IMDB bio he’s listed as five eleven while she’s listed as five ten and a half. Maybe he’s slouching. And she’s wearing twelve inch heels? :)

    Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette – each is a great actress, each has an accent, and each can rock orange hair. Mere coincidence or the work of the gods?

    You can tell he is bending his knees. Then even count the levels of the Venice Film Festival titles behind him. In the first photo he is six levels high, then only five in the one with her. He is bending. But at first glance it is definitely a funny photo.

    he is bending his knees, plus she has on what look like 3-inch platforms… I think in reality they are about the same height.

    I saw Tilda in person at the San Francisco Film Festival last year, when she gave a State of the Cinema Address. The woman was a goddess, but at the same time, she came off as very personable and humble. Very beguiling and clearly very intelligent woman.

    If you want to go egg Clooney’s house, here it is. Tilda rocks and George better worship her. So bending his knees is a start. She was AMAZING in Orlando. Great role for her. Seriously, Clooney loves pranks so I bet he wouldn’t mind if someone tossed a couple of eggs over the fence.
