Toronto, Ontario — Today the big stars rolled into Toronto as George Clooney, joined by co-stars Jeff Bridges and Ewan McGregor, were in town for the opening of their film The Men Who Stare at Goats. Meanwhile Clooney’s bud and Ocean’s 11 co-star Matt Damon, as well as Ocean director Steven Soderbergh, were touting their new film, The Informant!
The Informant!, a film about the most wacked out industrial spy you are ever going to meet, is a movie that grows on you, and Damon is earning props for gaining weight and wearing a fake nose and toupee in order to truly capture this true life character.
Both Damon and Clooney share a wicked sense of humor, which was evident in their press conferences which took place back to back. Clooney, when asked about Damon being named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, explained that both he and Brad Pitt have earned that honor twice and as far as he was concerned, “It was a fluke that Damon even one it once.”
Damon, when asked about the fact that actors that gain weight and change their appearance, often earn Oscar nominations, joked that, “That was the only reason I took the role.”
