Watching them together is like that, non? High school all over again. The two most popular boys, sauntering side by side down the hall, parting the crowds, smiling easily at their subjects, the most confident gait, never in a hurry, but not terribly slow, and always a secret conversation buzzing between them that you desperately, desperately want to hear.

This is George Clooney and Brad Pitt. So effortlessly cool you want badly to be their friend. And if you say you don’t, I don’t believe you.

The two are in Venice – last night it was a Darfur fundraiser, shaking hands with rich Euros in the hopes of shaking out a cheque.

Love that a suit is never just a suit for Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt is a clothes horse. Amazing.

This morning it was a photo call and press conference for Burn After Reading. As expected, they were at it again – inside jokes, teasing each other, relaxed and playful…two kings co-existing easily.

Can’t wait to see them in Toronto.
