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).

Analysis: How did Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie manage to marry so quietly?

Aug 28 2014 9:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Now that I’ve given myself some time to calm down from the BREAKING NEWS of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s undercover nuptials this past weekend, I’m contemplating how they managed to be so quiet. One of the few details we have is that “Pitt and Jolie also obtained a marriage license from a local California judge. The judge also conducted the ceremony in France.” I think they were working with someone they knew and trusted and maybe the judge pulled some favors so that the mar ...

Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie Alleged “Showdown” at George Clooney Wedding Faked By Desperate Star Magazine

Aug 27 2014 12:42pm CDT | Source: Gossip Cop

(Star) Star magazine is desperate for attention. So desperate, in fact, that this week the magazine chose to fabricate a cover story about a made-up “showdown” between Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie at George Clooney’s non-existent wedding. Star’s new cover wants you to think Clooney and Amal Almuddin married over the weekend. They did not. Star also wants you to believe Aniston and Jolie came “face-to-face for the first time since Angie stole Brad [Pitt]” at the nuptials, ...

Matt Damon Pours Toilet Water On His Head

Aug 26 2014 2:10pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Week three of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has devolved into celebrity video selfies and people using the ALS Challenge for entirely different political purposes. Orlando Jones poured bullets on his head in some rather awkwardly phrased rant about police violence in Ferguson. Carla Gugino and Malin Akerman made out and giggled. I think Lou Gehrig would have appreciated that. Now Matt Damon is pouring toilet water over his head t ...
