As much as it breaks our hearts, George Clooney only has eyes for Sarah Larson these days, but that certainly doesn't mean there aren't a whole lot of women willing to give it a try. On Tuesday when he showed up for a shoot for Esquire's upcoming 75th anniversary issue, apparently he had the whole office swooning as he danced with different staffers. From there he continued his tour of NYC with a screening for Leatherheads where he joked about the movie's success, or lack thereof. He said:
"[Leatherheads] bombed and when I say bombed, it bombed. Someone said, 'How does that feel?' and it stings a little bit. It's not like we just showed up: I was working on this for a couple years and put a lot of work into it, and you get knocked back a little bit.
The trick is how you handle things when things don't go great. It's easy when things are doing well. The people I most admire are the people who handle it when the studio says that's really underperformed and they say, 'Ow, that hurt.' I've been a fan of watching people go through cycles, not just winning cycles."
Aw, don't be sad Clooney! While I'm sure it hurt to see his labor of love beaten down at the box office, he's still got a lot of great things going for him. Plus, hearing the most suave star in Hollywood talk about his wounded ego is perhaps the most endearing thing of all.
