Kicking off the work week with a full day of filming, George Clooney and Matt- Damon arrived on the set of “The Monuments Men” in Hertfordshire, England this morning (June 3).

Also starring John Goodman, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, and Hugh Bonneville, “The Monuments Men” is slated for release next year.

Per the synopsis, “In a race against time, a crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renown works of art stolen by Nazis before Hitler destroys them.”

Hugh Bonneville takes wife Lulu Evans on set as he films The Monuments Men... and introduces her to silver fox George Clooney

By EMILY SHERIDAN and LOUISE SAUNDERS

PUBLISHED: 15:40 GMT, 3 June 2013

She was playing the dutiful wife by going to visit her husband, Hugh Bonneville, on the set of his latest movie The Monuments Men.
And Lulu Evans was no doubt thrilled to find herself in the company of none other than Hollywood A-lister George Clooney as the group got to work on location at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, Cambridgeshire.

Hugh, 49, was kitted out in full army regalia as his leading lady arrived on set on Monday afternoon.

The pair seemed to be enjoying themselves as they enjoyed an arm-in-arm stroll around the picturesque countryside location while soaking up the warm afternoon sun. But it wasn't long before something caught Lulu's eye, and the couple immediately made their way over to join silver fox Clooney in the director's chair.

The Hollywood hunk appeared to be getting on like a house on fire with Bonneville's wife, with the group chatting away together amiably as they relaxed in the sunshine.

Say cheese! The actor was spotted snapping away on his mobile phone, suggesting perhaps Lulu was keen to get her picture taken during her encounter with Clooney

At one point, the Downton Abbey actor could be seen taking a snapshot on a mobile phone, suggesting perhaps Lulu was keen to get her picture taken during her encounter with Clooney.

Whether it was that or the warm day, but Hugh seemed to find the whole situation absolutely hilarious, and fell about laughing as he chatted to his wife and a member of the production staff.

Earlier in the day, Clooney had been commanding attention both in and out of character in the movie as he was dressed as an army officer.

An unexpected visitor: Hugh and Lulu were later seen chatting to a member of the production staff as they relaxed in the picturesque countryside

George, who is writing, directing and acting in the World War II drama, took his project to Cambridgeshire, as he was joined on location by co-stars John Goodman, Matt Damon and Hugh Bonneville.

The Hollywood stars were joined by dozens of extras as they shot scenes at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford on Monday. Although George, Hugh and Matt had been seen filming last week, Monday marked the first day former Roseanne star John was seen on set.

Part of the family: Lulu seemed to be getting along great with the production staff as she accompanied her husband to work for the day

He was dressed in a green army uniform as he followed his superiors - played by George and Hugh - around on set. At one point, they were joined by young extras, who looked ready for battle with their guns in position.

The film is co-written, producer and directed by Clooney, with the script based on the book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M. Edsel.

Stroll in the sunshine: The group made their way back to the set as Lulu sipped on a coffee

Set during World War II, it tells the story of an Allied group who were responsible for saving pieces of art and other significant cultural items from the Nazis during World War II. Matt takes on the role as the late James Rorimer, who was the director for the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York.

In 1943, he put his Met career on hold to sign up as a infantryman in the United States Army, but soon found his art skills being utilised during the war when he headed up the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives programme.

Indeed!
He's channelling 1940s suave gentleman rogue look of Errol Flynn & Clark Gable. Very Happy

John Goodman is a great actor, don't think his weight affects his acting. Same as George, thin or thinner he still does his job. Been trying to remember how many films G&J have been in together, plus there is Roseanne.

I agree but I don't think John put much back on I think it's the picture because I saw one last week where he didn't look as big. I hope George will put some back on after this movie is finished. Love you George however.

Still checking the part I think he's playing. It might be that of a helpful German - don't think that's a Brit uniform.

Looks like they're doing a tour of South East England counties - Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and any minute now - Sussex. Let's hope they're using helicopters and not sitting on the M25 a lot!
