George Clooney and Brad Pitt: how close are they as friends?

Brad Pitt and George Clooney: How Good of Friends Are They Really?

Wed., Feb. 15, 2012 5:06 PM PST by Natalie Finn

George Clooney and Brad Pitt played devoted partners in crime in Ocean's Eleven (and Twelve and Thirteen), they started a Darfur charity together, and obviously neither one has to be jealous of the other's looks.

But are the actors, who introduced each other's films at the Golden Globes this year and seem to be having a ball showing up at all the same events, actually the best of buds when the cameras are off?

Do summers spent shooting caper flicks on the Italian Riviera mean nothing anymore?! Of course not, Clooney says, but he and Pitt aren't necessarily bosom buddies.

"Brad is one of the great guys," the Oscar co-front-runner said in a recent sit-down with The Hollywood Reporter when asked just how close he and Pitt are in real life.

"We're good friends, but it's different from what people think—meaning we don't spend a lot of time together. He has been to my home in Como; we motorcycle together. But until recently, I hadn't seen Brad in a year."

Even though Clooney doesn't hold Pitt quite as close to the vest as he does Rande Gerber, Richard Kind and some of the guys he knew when he wasn't "George Clooney" yet, those two don't actually have to be in the same room to keep the bromance going.

"A couple of years ago, he really nailed me," Clooney said of Pitt. "He did one of those shows and they asked him when he was going to marry Angie, and he said, 'I'll marry when George can legally marry [a man].' He really got me badly, something I have had to deal with the past few years. But I could give a s--t. I have to live in the world that I care about and that's all that matters."

And for the record, he told THR, he hasn't definitively ruled out getting married again. "I don't even think about it, really," he said.

But guess who could have been teasing Clooney from afar for the last decade?!

The Descendants star also revealed in the interview that, when casting Ocean's Eleven, the pieces came together easily, except for one.

"Steven Soderbergh and I would go to people's homes and sit down and say, 'Here's what we think.' We sat down with Matt Damon and Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt, and they all signed on and it all worked out easily," Clooney recalled. "But we also sat with Johnny Depp, and we didn't get him. I think the part was for a Brit, and he didn't want to do it."

No offense to eventual Brit-player Don Cheadle, but...bloody 'ell!

Oh but Don Cheadle was perfect in the part... IMO anyway !
He brought the right kind of subtle humour to the character that Depp wouldn't have done.

I think the media likes to play up George's friendship with Brad, making it more than it really is. I guess it sounds more glamorous to be best mates with another film star than the largely unknown people who George is really friends with.

Also, I guess it's credit to their acting in the Ocean's films in that they seemed convincingly close friends.

I think that he's friends with Brad like he's friends with alot of his Hollywood pals. They started charities together and support each others individual charities. But, a close bond like he has with "The Boys", nope - don't see it.

*little side note Katie - in your title, Brad's name is spelled with a D, not an S. hahahahaha

Ooops! I'd better correct that before Angelina gets me!

I think I was thinking about bikini shopping when I was typing that . . . Bras indeed.

Personally, Brad Pitt is a celebrity business bud. He is not in the same league as The Boys.

I wonder if George will be going to Brad and Angie's party in London

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are hoping to throw a star-studded bash to celebrate the 2012 London Olympics with stars including Catherine Zeta-Jones, David and Victoria Beckham expected to attend.

The 'Moneyball' actor and his bride-to-be will be reportedly hosting the event at London's Victoria & Albert Museum, held in honour of boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

Enjoying the champagne reception that will be held on the museum's lawn are stars including the 'Rock of Ages' actress's husband Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone as well as other Hollywood A-listers. Following their four-course dinner, guests will be invited back to Brad and Angelina's Richmond home for a swanky bash.

The couple are currently based in the UK while Angelina films her new movie 'Maleficent' and as previously reported the couple bought the house that they rented last year while Brad filmed 'World War Z'.

"Forget the official opening ceremony, this is the party to be at,” a source told the Daily Mirror. "Angelina is on official work duty but Brad is ensuring fun will be had after hours, and is very hands-on organising the house party after.

"It's going to be an Olympics-themed party, with huge buckets of home-made cocktails on offer.

"The who's who of British and American celebrity will be in attendance, and invitees have been ordered not to take any photos from their phones."

The party are is said to be raising funds for the Sports for Peace initiative, and the bash will be held on July 25.

Brad and Angelina are expected to attend the London 2012 opening ceremony on July 27.

We're guessing the invite is in the post...
