George Clooney is front and center on the latest issue of Rolling Stone. He's promoting his upcoming family drama The Descendants, of which he says, "if it's not nominated for Best Picture, I'll be shocked. It's that good," and has been all over the world on press for the film. George's girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, has been a staple by his side during many red-carpet appearances, though the couple recently took a break from the spotlight to enjoy downtime in Mexico. George talked about his new love, his speedy award show routine, and the public's misconceptions of him in the magazine. Here's more from George Clooney in Rolling Stone:
- On the public's perception of his life: "I think one of the major misconceptions about me is that I live my life the way people think I lead my life, with hot and cold drinks running everywhere and a party all the time. They think of my life in terms of certain excesses that don't really exist. Things are actually fairly simple."
- On being low maintenance: "I'm the least metrosexual cat you've ever met. I've never had my fingernails or toenails done, and I've cut my own hair longer than other people have cut my hair. On an awards show day, I can play basketball, go in, take a shower and put on a tux — it takes me three minutes to put on a tux — and be out the door in 15 minutes."
- On Stacy's tweeting habits: "She can do whatever she wants. I rarely tell anybody what they should be doing with their life."
