George Clooney Back At Work On ‘Tomorrowland’

Semi-Exclusive... Newlywed George Clooney Returns To Work After His HoneymoonAfter what I’m sure was a magical wedding in Venice and a low-key “staycation” for his honeymoon with new wife Amal, George Clooney is back at work. Here he is on the set of ‘Tomorrowland’ in Vancouver. RELATED: Here’s our first look at ‘Tomorrowland.’

I’m surprised to see George filming ‘Tomorrowland’ simply because I thought it was already done! A teaser trailer was shown at New York Comic Con that left me completely intrigued. It’s scheduled to hit theaters on May 22, 2015, so they better get a move on- LOL. Perhaps these are some reshoots. Here’s the plot, per IMDb:

Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.

Between that and the teaser trailer, I think this is going to be amazing.

People Mag’s latest Amal Clooney propaganda piece is spectacular, blatant

FFN_Alamuddin_Amal_EVG_101514_51559255

Amal Clooney is back in London after her whirlwind trip to Greece earlier this week. You can see the photos of her in London here. Her travel-wear has greatly improved, right? I think she’s basing her newlywed look on one part Duchess Kate and one part Jackie Kennedy. Anyway, there are even more Amal stories, if you can believe it, so let’s get to it.

First of all, Amal was just named the “Most Influential Woman In London” by The Evening Standard, a reasonably conservative UK paper. Amal actually made #4 on the Most Influential list, but she’s the highest ranking woman, thus “most influential woman.” She’s more influential than Victoria Beckham AND Duchess Kate. Kate didn’t even make the list!

Next, a days-old story that I just never got around to writing about, but it is sort of interesting. Apparently, Amal got her new husband a very special wedding gift: expensive Murano cocktail glasses from Venice. George Clooney (Mr. Alamuddin, if you will) admired the Murano glasses that were used during their wedding celebrations, so Amal ordered him a set of 12 at a cost of $100 each. She also bought him a matching set of 12 silk napkins and napkin holders. Because what self-respecting heterosexual man doesn’t want napkin holders, amirite? Admit it, girl. You bought the napkin holders as a gift for yourself. You so fancy, Amal.

And finally, we have this absolutely spectacular piece of pro-Alamooney propaganda courtesy of People Magazine:

Amal Clooney is many things: a high-powered attorney, a budding fashion icon and George’s wife. But beyond the formidable intellect, impressive career and killer style, she is known among her inner circle for her warmth and wit.

“She has a devastating sense of humor,” a close family member tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

The younger daughter of Ramzi Alamuddin, a retired businessman, and Baria, an editor at Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat, she is also a loving aunt to her sister Tala’s children, including niece Mia, 12, and 6-year-old twin nephews Jad and Sari.

“She’s a doting, pampering aunt,” says the family member. “She has a loving heart.”

When it comes to her career, however, she is anything but soft.

“She’s supremely self-confident,” says William Schabas, a law professor at Middlesex University in London, who knows Amal professionally.

While she incites media mania in Greece, where she has been working on a case involving one of the world’s longest-standing cultural property disputes, those who know her say she will harness the spotlight to focus on issues that matter to her. The case, which centers on a collection of Greek masterpieces known as the Elgin Marbles or the Parthenon Marbles, “is very difficult and shows that she is not shying away from controversy,” a legal source says.

Adds a colleague: “She is picking up where the honeymoon temporarily left off. She is back with a vengeance.”

[From People]

Wow. What a blatant attempt to humanize Amal Clooney. Now that People Magazine’s readers (the Minivan Majority) know that she’s a top barrister with great hair AND she’s funny AND she’s a loving aunt, maybe now people will feel better about this hussy who stole America’s Bachelor ™? As for this whole “she doesn’t shy away from controversy” thing… um, I have mixed feelings. While the marble debate is a hot topic in Amal’s hometown (London), it’s a pretty artsy-fartsy #firstworldcontroversy. If she was really into controversy, she should have taken that UN job investigating war crimes between the Palestinians and Israelis. THAT would have been a hotbed of actual controversy. #NoDisrespectToTheNapkinHolders

Amal Clooney wears white Chanel, speaks about her husband & the marbles

FFN_Clooney_Amal_FFUK_101514_51559024

Here are some photos of Amal Clooney (The Artist Formerly Known as Amal Alamuddin) in Athens, Greece yesterday. Do you like the white suit? It’s Chanel. I disliked it when I first glanced through these photos, but after seeing it in motion and in different lighting, I like it more. She wears designer clothing very well. It doesn’t seem like “Look at me, I’m wearing Chanel!” It’s more like “I’m Amal Clooney and I’m awesome, and I happen to be wearing Chanel.” Amal visited the Acropolis Museum and she and her legal partners did a press conference. There’s video of her and her entourage – the press attention on her is really, really crazy. There’s some Duchess Kate-esque stuff happening here too. Hair-touching, buttons, a subtle eye-roll.

And if you’d like to hear more of her voice, here you go:

Okay, I love her voice. So posh! And now I’m kind of obsessed with her eyebrows. Do you think she gets them professionally shaped? And did she travel to Greece with a hairstylist?! Did Karl Lagerfeld make that suit for her? So many frivolous questions, I know. But don’t you want to know?

As for what she actually says, she once again drives home the point that the British Museum needs to return the marbles. Someone also asked her about George Clooney’s position on the marbles (he discussed the issue back in February). Amal said: “I would just hope that, even at this very early stage in marriage, I am wise enough to know that it’s up to my husband to choose which cause he wants to support or not.” So George isn’t hen-pecked. Yet. But when is she going to Duggar this bitch and get knocked up?

Amal Alamuddin changes her name to Amal Clooney, flies to Greece for work

wenn21779194

Amal Alamuddin has officially changed her name. I guess. Apparently, her law firm now has her listed as “Amal Clooney.” Whoa. I thought that if there was a name change, it would be hyphenated, like Amal Alamuddin-Clooney. Or they could just bite the bullet and both change their names to Alamooney (which would be amazing). Branding is everything and you have to show loyalty to your brand. That’s why so many people still refer to Duchess Kate as “Kate Middleton” and why I’ll always think of Amal as Amal Alamuddin. I learned how to spell her last name and everything!

Anyway, Amal Clooney (ugh!) has officially gone back to work. The honeymoon is over. First George flew to New York for Comic-Con and now Amal is in Greece, trying to help them get the Parthenon Marbles/Elgin Marbles back from the British Museum.

As she gets back to work, Amal Alamuddin has a big new case – and a new name, too. Listed as “Amal Clooney” on the website for her London-based firm, Doughty Street Chambers, the new wife of George Clooney arrived in Athens, Greece, on Monday to meet with Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and various culture officials throughout the week.

Her agenda: discussing Greece’s long-running, ill-fated bid to win back a collection of classical Greek marble sculptures variously known as the Parthenon Marbles or the Elgin Marbles from the British Museum in London. The move comes amid mounting pressure on the British Museum to return the marble masterpieces lining the walls of its Duveen Gallery since British diplomat Thomas Bruce, the 7th Earl of Elgin, removed them from the Acropolis more than 200 years ago. Earlier this month and after repeated pleas, UNESCO, the United Nations’ culture organization, called on the British government to enter mediation talks with Greece to settle one of the world’s biggest cultural property disputes.

Clooney, 36, will advise the Greek government on its “legal options,” government officials said. She will be accompanied by a delegation of Doughty Street Chambers barristers led by Geoffrey Robertson, the human rights lawyer who successfully argued for the return of Tasmanian Aboriginal artifacts from Britain’s Natural History Museum. Both were part of a legal team the Greek government approached four years ago in an initial consultation.

“Options,” says Vassilis Tavonis, a senior culture ministry advisor handling the Parthenon Marbles dispute in Athens, “is the operative word dominating this week’s meetings.”

So is “hysteria,” a Greek word gripping the country and international media as Clooney descends on the Greek capital. She isn’t expected to begin talks until Tuesday, but television crews already have been staked out around the airport for hours, with details of her visit dominating the news.

“The media frenzy and uproar alone will be beneficial [for Greece],” says a senior government official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of his proximity to the talks. “It will recast international attention on the case [of the Parthenon Marbles] and the injustice that has been done.”

It’s unclear whether Athens will hire Amal Clooney and her London-based firm for the mediation talks. By some accounts, cash-strapped Greece was unable to pay the legal team’s consultation fee four years ago, at the height of the country’s fiscal crisis. Now, though, Clooney is returning with one strict request: that the government in Athens stick to business alone, refraining from offering her – or her husband – even a token wedding gift.

[From People]

Hm. I wonder where George is now? Did he fly back to London to see Amal off? Did he return home to LA? Will he join Amal in Greece? I need to know! Oh, and considering how we’re all new to this name change, can we not refer to Amal as no-first-name “Clooney” just yet? For decades now, whenever People Mag wrote about a “Clooney,” it was George. This is going to take some getting used to.

Amal Clooney gets pap’d in Greece looking blowout-perfect: stunning?

FFN_Alamuddin_Amal_FFUK_101414_51557984

Here are some new photos of Amal Clooney (UGH!!) in Greece today. She’s apparently only going to be in Greece for three days, and I’m sort of wondering if Amal is going to get pap’d the entire time. These aren’t really “street style” photos, thank God. I’ve always said: I like Amal’s work clothes. She has great taste in suits and professional work-wear. The problem comes when she’s left to her own devices on her “down days.” Then it’s belly shirts and floral jeans and ugly shoes. I like her dress here and she’s doing that cute newly-married thing where she’s wearing a lot of white.

As we just discussed in the previous post, Amal is officially back to work after taking off a lot of time this year for her multiple vacations with George Clooney, plus planning her wedding and all of that. During the engagement period, Amal was offered a UN job (monitoring and reporting on causalities in Gaza), but she refused, claiming that she had too much work to do. But by most accounts, her new position as advisor to the Greek government on the Parthenon Marbles is very, very recent. Like, she was just hired for this position in the last few weeks. The Telegraph and The Guardian both have extensive coverage of the issues involved with the Marbles and such. It seems to me that Amal was specifically hired not just for her legal expertise, but because she’s now Amal Clooney and the press will follow her everywhere, and Greece is actively courting the press and public opinion.

PS… Did she get a blowout this morning or does her hair just look like that normally?!!?

Blake Lively reveals more baby bump photos on Preserve: adorable?

blake2

Blake Lively’s pregnancy rollout has been pretty good. Let’s be honest: if and when Amal Alamuddin gets pregnant, we will be inundated with story after story about her bump and George Clooney as a father and all of that. Compared to how wall-to-wall it could be, Blake looks almost circumspect. She announced her pregnancy on her newly launched Preserve site. She stepped out with Ryan Reynolds for one coupled-up, bumpy and EXCLUSIVE photo-op (Us Weekly bought the photos).

And now Blake is still controlling the story by releasing more photos of her bump on Preserve. I’m including some of the Preserve pics in this post, and you can see more here. The theme of the Preserve pictorial was, like, an autumnal celebration of motherhood, children and pregnancy. There were cakes and scarves and beautiful ginger children involved. Here’s what Blake wrote:

With a new baby on the way there is so much to do! But before experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux… there are presents to open, onesies to dye, there is cake to serve, advice to be shared and all around celebration to be had.

And that we did…

[From Preserve]

“Reflux”? Do moms really refer to baby vomit as “reflux”? And “onesies to dye”??? Judgy mothers, commence! Honestly, though, I bet some of the judgy mothers were already side-eyeing the cake. Blake should be eating only veggies and lean protein during her pregnancy! She already hates her baby because she’s eating cake!! Obviously.

George Clooney First Look At ‘Tomorrowland’ (Hot New Trailer)

tomorrowland teaser trailer 2Yesterday George Clooney made his first public appearance as a newlywed: he was a surprise guest at the ‘Tomorrowland’ panel at New York Comic Con. Deadline probably describes ‘Tomorrowland’ most accurately as Disney’s “mystery movie.” Very little is known about the storyline. This teaser trailer is our first look at it. RELATED: So where did George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin spend their honeymoon?

Of course George was as charming as ever on the panel.

It’s not lost on me that I’m spending my honeymoon at Comic-Con. My wife was as confused about what Comic-Con was as you are.
“Since my Batman I’d been disinvited from Comic-Con for about 15 years — sorry about the nipples on the suit.”

All’s forgiven, George- LOL. In ‘Tomorrowland’ he plays an inventor who teams up with a teenage genius. The two try to learn about a place that exists somewhere in time and space within their collective memory. Looking at the teaser trailer, it looks like it’s made for IMAX. Check it out.

George Clooney made a surprise (solo) appearance at Comic-Con in NYC

127378PCN_George05

Conspiracy theory: what if George Clooney just married Amal Alamuddin as some kind of overblown viral marketing for his Casamigos Tequila?! *adjusts tin foil hat*

Anyway, these are the first new photos we’ve had of newly married Clooney back on American soil. He was in NYC yesterday to make a “surprise appearance” at Comic-Con (Comic-Con is happening in NYC right now?) to promote his film Tomorrowland. Tomorrowland is a Disney film and George plays a “mysterious failed inventor.” It won’t be out until May 2015. There really was no reason for George to drop in to promote it now, I’m just saying. Unless he was kind of tired of his honeymoon? While at Comic-Con (??), George made jokes.

“It’s not lost on me that I’m spending my honeymoon at Comic-Con,” George Clooney cracked. “My wife was as confused about what Comic-Con was as you are,” he added of his lawyer love Amal Alamuddin.

After declaring it his first Comic-Con, the actor joked about his less-than-celebrated foray into the comic universe as Batman in 1997’S Batman & Robin: Since my Batman I’d been disinvited from Comic-Con for about 15 years — sorry about the nipples on the suit. I see the comment sections on all you guys.”

[From People & Us Weekly]

Ah, George. The prankster who grew up and got married and it was a fairytale. Sort of. Disney should have worked with George on that whole storyline. Oh, and Disney did release the first teaser trailer for the film – there’s only a glimpse of George’s character.

As for Mrs. Clooney… do you guys remember how George Clooney ended up giving like twenty interviews about the Elgin Marbles/Parthenon Marbles earlier this year? I tend to believe he made an off-hand comment about stolen antiquities and it got blown up into something else entirely. Well, funny story – Amal Alamuddin is now going to advise Greece about the Parthenon Marbles in an attempt to get the British Museum to return them to their home.

PS… His wedding ring! I never thought I’d see the day. You changed, bro.

Cindy Crawford Shares Her Anti-Aging Secrets & Talks ’90s Dieting

Cindy Crawford Films A Commercial In MiamiRemember supermodel Cindy Crawford? She’s 49 today, if you can believe it, but you would NEVER know that by looking at her! The pictures in this post (both the main pic and in the gallery after the break) were all taken just last month. Cindy shared her anti-aging secrets as well as the dieting practices (or misconceptions, based on our thinking now) from the ’90s. RELATED: Cindy Crawford joins Glamour’s ‘The Beauty Diaries.’

So what’s Cindy’s anti-aging secret?

The secret is that there is no secret. Do all the stuff we know: Don’t smoke, get enough sleep, drink plenty of water, find what makes you happy.
“I use SPF day cream every day, cleanser every day and night. I definitely use the night cream, eye cream and the Crème de Serum from my line. What I think is true is that [results are] cumulative. When a 35-year-old starts taking care of her skin, she won’t look different. It’s when you’re my age that you start seeing the payoff.”

Cindy also talked about how she handles aging gracefully, which is no easy feat for a supermodel.

I don’t want to look in the mirror every day and be down on myself. Look, I’m holding together pretty good, but I don’t look like I did when I was 25 or 30 or even 40. What I’m finding for myself is that if I continue to be engaged, to do what I love, that’s how I get my self-esteem cup filled. I get a lot of that from my family and work. I’m good at my job. I know I’m a good model at this point in my career. Though some days I feel like I’m too busy or too stressed out, I’m still excited to go to work. That kind of translates from the internal to the external.”

Great advice! I think we could all do to remember that. Cindy said modeling in her day wasn’t as difficult because models weren’t expected to be quite as thin as they are today.

Fortunately, we weren’t expected to be a size 0 or 2 in my era…Sometimes it was hard at the fashion shows. But because of the way my body was, I had some different opportunities, like my swimsuit calendars.””

She was always touted as one of the “curvy” models although she was still incredibly thin! Cindy also dished on dieting differences.

Remember back in the ‘90s when people thought that a big bowl of pasta was a low-calorie option? Those were the days! Today, eating that is like eating a sundae.”

So true- LOL. The focus back then was simply on fat, not on carbs, and pasta is low-fat (although the sauce coating it is a different story). Whatever Cindy’s done, doesn’t she look AMAZING?

George Clooney bought Amal a huge English mansion & they’re there now

FFN_Clooney_George_FLYUK_092814_51542671

I think The Daily Mail was the first outlet to report this – apparently, George Clooney has bought a “multi-million-pound riverside home for his new bride Amal Alamuddin” in England. According to the Mail’s sources, Amal and George are currently staying at this new Oxfordshire mansion and have been there since their Venice wedding ended. O RLY? Don’t get me wrong, I actually believe that George bought a huge English mansion for Amal, but I doubt that they are currently staying there. Still, Us Weekly says it’s true:

Newlyweds George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have skipped the traditional far-flung honeymoon destination, opting to take their two-week break in England instead! The happy couple, who became husband and wife during a lavish, weekend-long wedding celebration in Venice, Italy on Saturday, Sept. 27, bought their new home in the British county of Berkshire, two months ago. And rather than jet off for some honeymoon luxury, the newly married couple have chosen to hole themselves away in their new English mansion, and spend two weeks together in complete isolation.

“They wanted a simple break,” a source told Us Weekly, “Just somewhere to enjoy time together with no interruptions.”

And their new home proved the perfect option. Set back from the road, in the remote British countryside, their house is said to be luxurious, well decorated and super-private. It’s located close to a train station so lawyer Alamuddin can commute easily into her office for work, which she plans to continue as soon as her honeymoon is over.

“It’s just George and Amal at the house at the moment,” the source continued, adding that even Alamuddin’s family haven’t been to visit. And the duo haven’t yet hired a live-in chef, although they’re not going as far as cooking for themselves.

“A small private catering company delivers their meals every day,” the source said. The couple are expected to return to work, and normal life, next week.

[From Us Weekly]

So maybe it’s true? Maybe they’re in seclusion in the English countryside, just like Duchess Kate and Prince William? The Mail also said that the mansion includes a fancy spa and a home theatre. A source told The Mail: “It was Amal who first set eyes on the place. It’s her dream location. She was torn between Oxfordshire and Kent but ultimately chose Oxfordshire because she felt most at home there. She first fell in love with it during her days there at university.” George Clooney… English country squire? Or here’s one even better… George Clooney: International Man of the World and Nobel Peace Prize Winner?

He’s won Oscars and nabbed Golden Globes. Heck, he’s even taken home the MTV Movie Award for best breakthrough performance in 1996 for From Dusk Till Dawn. So what accolades are up next for George Clooney? Perhaps a Nobel Peace Prize.

At least that’s what his close friend John Lambros predicted, maybe only half-jokingly, for the actor – and his barrister bride, Amal Alamuddin – during a heartfelt speech at the couple’s Sept. 27 wedding ceremony.

Given their common passion for human rights causes, Lambros said, “Okay, I am projecting, but I am also making that call public tonight … perhaps the first husband-and-wife team to win the [Nobel] Prize for Peace.”

Lambros, who joined three others in delivering speeches during the moving ceremony, also underscored how crucial friendship is to the deeply loyal Clooney. Despite his success and global celebrity, “the friend we have known as George for years has not changed as a friend one bit,” said Lambros, who joked that the actor is so loyal that 20 years “affords me the friend status of rookie. It is more a function of how deeply, how honestly and how genuinely George both cares for and enjoys the people in his life, and how much he values friendship.”

Toward the end of his speech, Lambros turned to Alamuddin and expressed his gratitude.

“To say we, George’s friends, have been waiting for you, Amal, for a while is another enormous understatement,” he said, before quoting from a George Eliot passage. ” ‘And when a man has seen a woman whom he would have chosen if he had intended to marry speedily, his remaining a bachelor will always depend on her resolution rather than his.’ ”

“Amal,” said Lambros, “we all thank you for your resolution.”

[From People]

Sure, it was a “joke”. Personally, I don’t see how Amal helps Clooney run for governor of California or a Senate seat or anything like that, but I can see how Amal helps boost Clooney’s credibility as a citizen of the world/international man of mystery. I could see George going for some kind of UN appointment (even though he recently resigned his Messenger of Peace role for the UN). But Peace Prize? Nope. That won’t happen.
