George talks about his on screen makeup

Post by Katiedot on Mon Dec 13 2010, 12:00

It's amazing what you find when you trundle round the internet looking for other stuff. Found this 2000 interview that I'd never seen before.


From WENN
December 2000

Movie star GEORGE CLOONEY has no patience spending hours sitting in a make-up chair.
The ER star devised his own short-cut technique for creating the skanky look of an escaped convict in the upcoming COEN BROTHERS film, O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU? He describes the process, "I would just take dirt, Mississippi dirt and rub it on my face before we'd go and do the scene. Make-up chairs make me crazy and I don't really like him, plus you wanna just look dirty anyway, so it's perfect. You know I did it in THREE KINGS where I'd just pick up dust and rub it in my face and just go.

"There's something really mechanical looking when someone comes over and gives you a little patch of dirt here and a match there. It sort of takes all the fun out of it. Now I get to roll around in the dirt and it's pretty fun not having to grow up so you don't want to have to spend time in the make-up chair."

The 39 year old star of THE PERFECT STORM couldn't escape showing his age in his beard, but thought of a clever make-uptechnique to remedy that as well. He says, "I had a big whole patch of grey in my beard so I'd take a ball point pen, a BIC ball point pen and just fill it in!"

I wonder if he did the same in Leatherheads, that film had a lot of mud!

I remember in an interview where George pulled a prank on the players. He told them he needed to "retake" a shot and had them all roll around in the mud pool and get dirty again. After they were all muddied up, he said he didn't need the shot. Some of them "rushed" him to give him a hug and got him dirty.
