  • Excerpts of an interview with George Clooney from Hello magazine (which is identical to the previously linked Paris Match interview) are here, including:

    George Clooney has spoken about his friendship with fellow Hollywood hunk Matt Damon, saying he has a great sense of humour.

    The 46-year-old actor, who teamed up with Matt for the Ocean's films, told Hello magazine: "He's a great guy. He's 10 years younger than me and I'm impressed to see that he's much more concerned politically and socially than I was at his age.

    "Also he has a great sense of humour. We can spend entire evenings together saving the world and laughing our heads off."

  • Additional details on the Eastwood/Mandela film project are here, including:

    The script, by the South African writer Tony Peckham, is now complete and has apparently impressed everyone who has read it. "Usually when you read a Hollywood adaptation you think – what a bunch of hollow, shallow crap," Carlin said. "But this screenplay is really bloody good."

    Carlin said he has not stopped thinking about Hollywood since starting to write the book, which is still not quite finished but is not due to hit bookstores until next year. "This story is really the ultimate feel-good redemption movie," he said. "If the 1994 democratic elections were the consummation of the process [of shedding apartheid], the 1995 World Cup was the apotheosis of the process."
