George Clooney at the London Film Festival

In honour of George Clooney doing the rounds two days in a row at the London Film Festival, he gets his very own post. You are welcome, George. On Wednesday, George arrived to promote The Ides of March, which he directed, produced, co-wrote and starred in. Along with co-stars Evan Rachel Wood and Philip Seymour Hoffman, Clooney spoke enthusiastically about the film. He was even self-deprecating enough to make a joke about Batman and Robin. The video below features highlights from the press conference.

On Thursday Clooney was back to promote Alexander Payne’s The Descendants. Director Payne was joined by Clooney, actress Shailene Woodley and producer Jim Burke to discuss the film. Again, Clooney was delightfully modest in his achievements and some of his earlier film choices. See below for footage of the conference.
