Clooney honoured by Julia Roberts at award function

Nov 10 2013, 8:44am CST | by IANS

Los Angeles, Nov 10 (IANS) Actress Julia Roberts presented actor-friend George Clooney with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film at the recent BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards.

Los Angeles, Nov 10 — Actress Julia Roberts presented actor-friend George Clooney with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film at the recent BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards.

While honouring him here Saturday, the "Erin Brockovich" star cracked jokes about him.

"I'm normally in my second REM cycle by now, so let's get this done," Roberts joked on stage, reports eonline.com.

"George Clooney, or as my daughter calls him, 'George Looney.' So, so honoured to be here tonight. And there are two obvious reasons why I was chosen to do this. One, Brad Pitt was out of town. Two, Matt Damon, he's in town but he was unavailable," she added.

The Hollywood stars have acted in movies like "Ocean's Eleven" and "Ocean's Twelve".

"I consider George a friend. We have worked together in many capacities. We have acted together a few times. He's handsome, he's talented, he is an exemplary humanitarian and a gifted prankster," said Roberts.

Clooney also returned the compliments. "It has been such a pleasure to watch the woman you have become," he gushed.

"Its' very hard for me to be just straight nice because she'll get me later. But just an amazing mother, an amazing wife and a great, great friend. It's really an honour to have her here."

Other stars who were honoured during the bash included Kathryn Bigelow with John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing; Sacha Baron Cohen won Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy; Benedict Cumberbatch got Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year; Idris Elba got Britannia Humanitarian Award; and Ben Kingsley got Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment.

18 Classic Movie Lines & Scenes That Were TOTALLY Unscripted!

Sep 15 2014 5:46pm CDT | Source: Perez Hilton

Sorry, Hollywood screenwriters. Sometimes the best lines in films AREN’T the ones you wrote down in the script! In fact, some of the most famous scenes in movies are completely improvised on the set! An actor will do or say something that just feels right and… Ta da! Cinema magic! Like Heath Ledger in his posthumous Oscar-winning role as The Joker in The Dark Knight. No one instructed Heath to applaud like he did while Commissioner Gordon’s promotion wa ...

Here's the Exact Moment When Matthew McConaughey Realized He Lost

Aug 26 2014 9:15am CDT | Source: PopSugar

The competition for the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series was intensely fierce - so much so that even presenter Julia Roberts couldn't believe the list of great performances that were battling against one another. The lead battle appeared to be between True Detective's Matthew McConaughey, who would have made history if he won the same year he won an Oscar, and Breaking Bad's Bryan ...

Sofia Vergara, Julia Roberts, Michelle Dockery & Amanda Peet Red Carpet Pics From 2014 Emmys!

Aug 26 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

The actresses are always much more, well, sedate, than the singers, so it’s no surprise that the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet didn’t have the fashion risks we saw at the 2014 MTV VMAs. Yet what was similar to the VMAs was that there was no clear red carpet trend, either. Everyone went with their own style. It’s fun to see the ‘Orange is the New Black’ ladies outside of their prison garb! We have TONS of pics from the red carpet after the break. RELATED: Emmy ho ...

Aug 25 2014 10:00pm CDT | Source: PerezHilton

Ladies! What happened?! Julia Roberts and Kerry Washington usually KILL it on the red carpet! Their attires at the Emmys, however, say otherwise. The Pretty Woman actress took a more youthful route with her Elie Saab dress, but the rocky ensem didn't really pave the way to best dressed for this beauty! Kerry's Prada dress, on the other hand, totally reminded us of Halloween! It's still summer, girl! CLICK HERE to view the gallery, ...
