What's the background of this picture?

Post by Sevens on Sat 22 Mar 2014, 16:40

I found this pic on the biggest film site here. This one has been the most popular pic on George's page-got more than 100 replies.
Everyone is talking about how incredibly he looks like Clark Gable in that. However they didn't put any information below the pic.Although I've read the introduction stuff on the pic.
So I want to know some background stories of this: Why did they shoot this? Where was it published?
And why wouldn't they do a re-make of GONE WITH THE WIND or biographic film of Clark Gable?George might have a good chance to win that Best Actor Oscar, finally. Cool 
Thanks in advance.

Stars of old Hollywood, he thinks, wouldn’t be able to cope with the realities of modern stardom. “Not that I’m comparing myself to Clark Gable or whoever but they couldn’t survive in this environment. They’d punch the shit out of some people. It requires a kind of Zen quality.
He recently said this of Clark Gable, any other feelings?He seems to have a fascination of the Old Hollywood. I bet he'd accept the role.

I'm not sure--but it looks look it might be from one of Vanity Fair's annual Hollywood issues.  Typically they try to recapture Hollywood glamour from the hey dey.

Not sure about Gone with the Wind--I hate remakes myself and feel there is little enough originiality in moviemaking these days.  Also not sure about George playing an actual person that people are very familiar with--don't think that plays to his strengths as an actor and has a lot of pitfalls.

This photo was shot by Herb Ritts in California on January 28, 2000.

George Clooney turns 50 today. Herb Ritts photographed him as Clark Gable for the Vanity Fair “Hollywood Issue” in 2000.

Thanks Nicky...I just feel he should play some serious actual person from the past....should be interesting to see.
Michael Clayton isn't the ancient person. He seems to always play in the present times.
