Watching George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon fool around during their promotion for "Ocean's Twelve" was like watching a comedy act. The three clowned around the whole time during their 24-hour visit to Japan on Thursday.
The camaraderie and bantering among the trio was very much how it was on the set, said Pitt, popularly known in Japan as "Burapi." "It was great fun and it is a blessing that there was a movie in there." Damon said he never even bothered to read the script. "I just showed up after finishing 'The Bourne Supremacy,'" said the 34-year-old.
Since each of their characters in the heist film has a forte, what about in real life? "I'm good at drinking," said Clooney, yelling "ikki, ikki" (what Japanese say when they down a beer in one go). "Acting is definitely not my forte," shrugged Damon, while Pitt offered that interpretive dancing was his particular skill. "I like to speak with my body," he said, but Clooney countered that "others would call that porn."
Pitt attended only the press conference and the red carpet gala, letting Clooney, Damon and producer Jerry Weintraub promote the movie.
Sightings: Matt Damon getting a private tour of the new MoMA.
JENNIFER GARNER left fans confused last night (12JAN05), when she declared that she was dating BEN AFFLECK's best pal MATT DAMON.
The ALIAS beauty, who has been dating her DAREDEVIL co-star Affleck since July (04), decided to deceive an inquiring JAY LENO when she made an appearance on his chat show.
When Leno cheekily asked if Garner had "any boyfriends, or anything", she joked, "Actually, I did meet this really nice guy that I think is a really great actor. I was watching BOURNE SUPREMACY and THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE.
"Matt and I are doing great. We're having a really good time. He's a really sweet guy."
