Goddamn George Clooney is a handsome motherf-cker.

And the combination of Clooney with Ewan McGregor, both of them in shades with the wind whipping their hair, warrants his second post of the day.

It’s The Men Who Stare At Goats photocall today in Venice. Clooney, as always, worked it for the press. This is a man who understands his job. Does it better than almost anyone else. Look at him, smearing his charm all over the Italians, a man’s man and a ladies’ man, quick with a quip, and always always smirking like he lives a better – and more fun – life than you do.

Fun these days of course is with the new spicy Elisabetta. Oh this one is no wallflower. This one likes to speak. This one will speak for her spotlight.

She was on Italian TRL yesterday after arriving in Venice posing like she’s been reborn. Careful George. This one won’t go away quietly…

PS. Please don’t speak ill of Ewan’s style. It’s Ewan. It’s good. What’s not good is the height. Laura warned me about this. Now seeing him standing next to Clooney, who’s 5 ft 10 on a very, very good day, have to close my eyes now and hear the accent. He’s short. I’m trying to get over it.
