George Clooney covers the December/January edition of W, the magazine’s eighth annual arts issue.

In addition to an avant garde photo spread (see right), the Oscar winner discusses the impact of art on society, depression, and — yes — his love life.


“When I was a kid, I was in love with Audrey Hepburn. I watched Roman Holiday when I was 11, and I thought she was as elegant as anything I’d ever seen. And I fell madly in love with her,” confesses Clooney.

He continues, “I also always loved Grace Kelly. I mean, when she comes out of the water in To Catch a Thief, I thought, That’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.”

But asked about the love of his real life, Clooney replies, “I haven’t met her yet…”

The actor admits he suffers from homesickness when he’s off shooting films.

“Home is where my friends and family are… I spend 8 months a year in a one bedroom hotel room in a city I probably wouldn’t vacation in,” he says, noting he relies on visits from his loved ones to get by.

“I get desperately, depressingly homesick if I can’t find a way to be near the people that bring joy wherever they go. Spend a night with my parents battling over who was the rottenest child (my sister or me)… Or my friends pointing out how badly I destroyed a certain bat franchise,” he jokes.

The star, given a choice between passion, romance, or hard core sex, says he prefers “passion… that encompasses the other two,” reveals he doesn’t believe in God, and says if he could choose how to die, he wants it to simply be “before my friends.”

Clooney’s next movie is The Monuments Men — a project he wrote, directed, and starred in — which recounts the Allied efforts to rescue works of art from the Nazis during World War II.

“In The Monuments Men, we question whether saving art is worth a life, and I would argue that the culture of a people represents life,” says Clooney, noting, “When the Taliban destroy incredible pieces of architecture and art, or when American troops don’t protect museums in Iraq, you are seeing people losing their culture.”

“And with the end of a country’s culture goes its identity. It’s a terrible loss, down to your bones,” he adds.

Kanye West Opens Up About “True Love” Kim Kardashian, Says “F**k You” to Haters

Truth rating: 10

12:54 pm, June 24th, 2013


Kanye West isn’t forcing Kim Kardashian to change her style, and the new mom isn’t forcing the rapper to appear on her reality show.

West makes that — and much more — clear in a piece in W magazine’s July issue, in which the music star opens up about his personal life, his explicit home movies, and just why his ego is so large.

Of allegations that West has forced Kardashian to undergo a Euro-centric makeover, he defiantly says, “Nobody can tell my girl what to do.”

He goes on to commend his beloved for taking fashion risks “in front of the world.”

“It just shows you how much she loves me. And how much she actually loves the opportunity to learn,” says the rapper. “You got, like, a million companies saying, ‘This is impacting your brand! This is impacting your fans! And blah blah blah.’ But she still sees this light of beauty.”

West seems to have a similar mindset when it comes to being on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” telling the magazine, “Oh, that’s just all for love. It’s simply that.”

“At a certain point, or always, love is more important than any branding,” says West.

But West readily admits he prefers to be in control of his image — even telling W he’s “the No. 1 living and breathing rock star” — and cites personal sex tapes that were nearly leaked last fall as an example.

The Grammy winner, who confesses to being obsessed with porn since high school, explains, “For the most part, I’d rather people have one of those home videos than some of the paparazzi photos that get published. At least I recorded the sh*t myself. That tape couldn’t have hurt me in any way if it came out — it could only have helped.”

“Now, I just do exactly what I want, whenever I want, how the f**k I want,” he goes on to note. “ ‘F**k you’ is my message.”

And when asked about his infamously large ego, West initially says he tries “to scale it back,” but then adds, ”my ego is my drug. My drug is, ‘I’m better than all you other motherf**kers. Kiss my a**!’ ”

Duly noted.

West’s full interview hits newsstands on July 16.
