Did Viola Davies lie to George Clooney?

Post by Katiedot on Tue Jan 31 2012, 16:42

In a wonderful example of making a story from nothing, we have this:

From access hollywood

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Viola Davis and George Clooney are both being considered as frontrunners in the Oscar race, but the star of “The Help” says she lied to “The Descendants’” leading man about taking a leap out of an airplane if they both take home Oscars next month.

Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson got to the bottom of the skydiving promise that appears to have been a fib on the red carpet of the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night.

”You told George that if both of you won Oscars, that you were going to jump out of a plane together. Then you backed off. Where are you standing today?” Shaun asked Viola, who took home the SAG Award for Outstanding Lead Actress on Sunday night in Los Angeles.

“It was a total and complete lie, but I’ll watch him jump out of a plane,” she said. “With some champagne ready!”

The actress said her job on the big screen is thrilling enough for her.

“I don’t need to do that to make me feel alive – jump out of a plane,” she said. “I’m an actor, that’s like skydiving every day.”

“So what if both of you guys get Oscars, what are you going to do? How are you going to celebrate?” Shaun asked.

“He’s going to invite me to his villa, all expenses paid,” she said of George’s Lake Como home in Italy.

As for George, he’s not surprised that Viola backed out of her Oscar promise.

“She chickened out didn’t she?” George said with a smile on the SAG red carpet. “Here’s the funniest thing, she’s the one that suggested jumping out of a plane and then she backed out. [Now,] she’s insisting that I go out of a plane? That’s a little manipulative of her!”

George also revealed that another pair of his big screen pals are also welcomed at his villa, if they should decide to take a trip down the aisle.

If George can't convince Viola to jump out of a plane, maybe he can
convince her to jump in Lake Como if he invites her. LOL

Why do they always make it sound so dramatic? And then they interview the other one and it's "he said, she said". Did the same thing with almost every interviewer between George and Brad and the BIG prank. I did like George's answer on one when he said "maybe there isn't a prank... it keeps him up all night wondering" or words to that effect. I think I said that a couple weeks ago on another thread - maybe the prank is that there is no prank. Well, I digressed, like usual, but it would be fun to watch them both skydive together. He'd have that screaming look on his face like when he was sitting at the bar in Intolerable Cruelty and realized after he had torn up the pre-nup that she shammed him. hahahaha

I agree Mel...I hate the same questions over and over again...oh and I don't think there is a prank either....apparently SK said she knows what it is but isn't telling. I would think he would keep it close to the vest and not tell anyone if there really was a prank....but we digress...

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to Clooney I go!

He definitely said something to that effect when they were all working on the Ocean's movies together. He said that once you've established your reputation as a practical joker, you don't ever have to actually do anything, just the appearance that you're doing something will make people sweat. Actually, that was a part of a funny prank he pulled on Brad. Brad had given Matt Damon the key to his hotel room for a weekend while he went home to LA (to visit Jennifer Aniston - this was a LONG time ago Very Happy ). Matt lost the key, and George told him to just tell Brad he'd given it to George. Brad said he didn't sleep for a week, and would pull his room apart every night looking for whatever George had set up, and George had never actually done anything. Very Happy

Missa
Clooney-love. And they said it wouldn't last

I doubt George expects Viola to jump and he wouldn't have any intentions to anyway. Much ado about nothing. Meryl has been winning hasn't she? Not so sure Viola will win an Oscar over Meryl, Octavia seems to be winning all hers so she has a good chance.

Haha! I can't see George doing this either. Remember when Sarah Larson was going to go skydiving for her birthday and George's response was "have fun!"?

Yeah, remember him saying when they asked him about if he was brave in Darfor, he said he always runs. I don't remember his exact words on it, but he was being funny when he said it. Think Him and his Dad are brave too, even tho you'd never hear them say anything about it. But skydiving? Thats scarey. What if your chute didn't open?

I think that George has alot of respect for Meryl, but he has an association with Viola and is probably rooting a little for her.
