Julia Roberts praises pal George Clooney at BAFTA LA Awards

Nov 10 2013, 1:08pm CST | by Bang Showbiz

Julia Roberts honored her friend George Clooney at the 2013 BAFTA LA Awards on Saturday night (11.09.13).

The 'Pretty Woman' actress praised the Hollywood heavyweight for his acting talent as well as his "gifted prankster" skills as she took to the stage to present him with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film prize.

Speaking at the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards in Beverly Hills, Julia joked: "George Clooney, or as my daughter calls his, 'George Looney.' So, so honored 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. I consider George a friend. We have worked together in many capacities. We have acted together a few times.

"He's been my producer and my director, all of which he is immeasurably gifted at. He's handsome, he's talented, he is an exemplary humanitarian and a gifted prankster."

George, 52, was visibly moved by Julia's comments and was quick to return the compliments. The pair - who were last on-screen together nine years ago in 'Ocean's Twelve' - have recently been reunited in upcoming movie 'August: Osage County', which is co-produced by George.

The silver fox told Julia: "It has been such a pleasure to watch the woman you have become. It's 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 honor to have her here."

The old pals were seated next to each other during dinner at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, and spent the evening giggling and chatting. At one point Julia - who has three children with her husband Danny Moder - rested her head on newly-single George's shoulder, and kept a firm grip on his hand as the ceremony kicked off, but it was clear the pair were just good friends.

Other actors who were honoured at the star-studded ceremony included Sacha Baron Cohen (Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy), Benedict Cumberbatch (Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year) and Idris Elba (Britannia Humanitarian Award).

Old People News: Sandra Bullock Celebrates 50th birthday with Chelsea Handler and Total Non-famouses

Jul 28 2014 9:24am CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

I am not a huge fan of birthdays. I far prefer to be observing and blackmailing the center of attention than actually being the center of attention, and the idea of aging brings to mind morbid images of Lisa Rinna’s lips and Gwyneth Paltrow making her children’s friends eat kale chips. That said, one should celebrate one’s birthday with people of one’s own popularity and fame level, not a bunch of no-names. Yes, Sandra Bullock, I’m talking to you. Sandra Bullock celebrated her 50th ...

Scarlett Johansson has been keeping quiet lately. Like, for the past two months or so, she’s been able to step back in a big way. It’s nice. It’s allowed us to examine other sketchy/fishy couplings, like George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin. But that doesn’t mean that ScarJo’s engagement to Romain Dauriac is any less shady, just that she’s not trying to convince us that this is the grandest love affair in the ...

Don’t Sleep On Stacy Keibler’s Maternity Style–She’s Killing It On The Low

Jul 17 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bride Finds

Up until a few weeks ago my only points of reference when it came to Stacy Keibler were WWE and George Clooney. But I randomly came across a picture of her wearing this amazing maxi dress and in the process of searching for it I found more pics of her. Oddly--and quite surprisingly--I found myself wanting everything she was wearing. Sure, she is like six months pregnant, but she is killing the maternity clothes game. Heck, I'm not even pregnant and I want her clothes! So ...
