George Clooney walked the carpet at The Ides of March premiere in LA last night, where he joked about the secret behind costar Ryan Gosling's winning charm and career success: his clothes! What did Ryan say about George in return? Find out in today's PopSugar Rush.
Ryan Gosling and George Clooney shared a hug and a laugh on the red carpet at Tuesday evening's LA premiere of The Ides of March. The dapper twosome were joined by their costars in the movie Evan Rachel Wood, a Marios Schwab-clad Marisa Tomei, and Max Minghella, who had girlfriend Kate Mara along as his date. George Clooney also brought a special someone along to the screening — Stacy Keibler. Stacy and George made their public debut at TIFF where he was promoting both The Ides of March and The Descendants. Ryan Gosling, meanwhile, has been on a charm offensive making the interview rounds for both the political drama and his recently released and well-reviewed indie film Drive. Still, Ryan didn't bring his real life-leading lady Eva Mendes along as his premiere date. Ryan and Eva did go on a romantic walk last week, though most of his days are spent reigniting his onscreen chemistry with Emma Stone filming The Gangster Squad.
George Clooney and Stacy Keibler may not have walked the red carpet together, but they did make a statement at last night's Toronto International Film Festival premiere of The Ides of March. George didn't pose with his new girlfriend, Stacy, though he did get cozy with his cast including Ryan Gosling and Paul Giamatti. Toronto is Ryan's hometown, and he brought his mom, Donna Gosling, as his date for the evening. Before the screening Ryan and George started the festivities with a cocktail party at the Grey Goose Soho House Pop-Up Lounge, where there were hugs galore between the handsome actors. Ryan and George also showed their chemistry at The Ides of March press conference earlier in the day. Stacy was right behind George as they returned to their hotel at the end of the evening, and he even sweetly stopped to grab her hand and make sure she was OK as they made their way through the fan frenzy in the lobby. Ryan, meanwhile, was on his own when he called it a night, but he did make time to stop for a few pictures before heading to his room.

George Clooney and Ryan Gosling were full of laughs and smiles at the press conference for The Ides of March in Toronto on Friday. They premiered their movie at TIFF later in the evening, and George confirmed his relationship with Stacy Keibler by bringing her along to the festival. The two leading men had great banter on the stage together, including a moment when Gosling described working with director Clooney as "more than fun. It was life altering," to which George responded by throwing $50 bills at Ryan. Both guys have other movies debuting at TIFF on Saturday, with George starring in the already well-reviewed The Descendants and Ryan once again premiering Drive. For both George and Ryan their double-duty festival darlings are getting award season buzz, so hopefully seeing the two side by side is just a preview of what's to come this Winter.

Ryan Gosling is dabbling in politics for his next film, The Ides of March, and he's working for the kind of candidate I'd vote for again and again: George Clooney. Gosling plays Stephen Myers, a political strategist working for the presidential campaign of Governor Mike Morris (Clooney). When the manager of a rival campaign (Paul Giamatti) tries to woo the brilliant Myers to come work for his side, Myers explores his own integrity and questions the politics of his boss Morris.
With all the taut drama of a real political race, the movie looks incredible. Is there really a better cinematic treat than seeing Gosling and Clooney onscreen together, first as allies, then, possibly as enemies? Plus, the rest of cast is stellar, with Marisa Tomei, as a New York Times reporter, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Evan Rachel Wood.
The film opens on Oct. 7, but you can see the trailer now when you read more
While you're busy drooling over Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love, the actor is prepping to get into a more serious mode for his next film, The Ides of March. Gosling stars alongside George Clooney (who also directed), playing the press secretary to Clooney's presidential candidate. As you can guess, the line between the lives and personalities of the two men blurs into one. Though the poster is giving me Face/Off flashbacks, it's hard to complain about seeing these two good-looking mugs on the same one-sheet.
George Clooney flashed a smile at the Cancun Film Festival today during a photo call for his latest directorial project The Ides of March. The political thriller, which he also stars in, kept George and his costars Evan Rachel Wood and Ryan Gosling busy shooting in the Midwest for much of the Fall and Winter. Evan and Ryan didn't join George south of the border for this afternoon's festivities, and, of course, he was also without his ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis. She was a frequent fixture by his side at red-carpet events for the past few years. It was his first public appearance since the end of their relationship made news in late June, and according to some reports, the reason George and Elisabetta broke up was that he doesn't want to get married or have children. Whatever the cause for the split, George has plenty on his professional plate to keep him occupied this Summer and Fall. The Ides of March hits theaters in October, The Descendants is out in December, and George has also signed on to produce his friend Ben Affleck's upcoming movie Argo.
Ryan Gosling graciously took a moment to hug a fan and pose for a photo yesterday on the set of The Ides of March in Detroit. In the background we got another glimpse at the Obama-inspired political ad featuring George Clooney's face, which should make for an even cooler celebrity sighting snapshot. Ryan and George have been casually hanging out with the locals and clowning around between takes since filming moved to Michigan last month. The guys were also joined by their lovely costar Evan Rachel Wood, whom George lovingly refers to as "the schnoz." Joking aside, George may end up finding himself in court soon enough if he's summoned to testify in the Italian prime minster's sex scandal trial, though even the actor seems confused about his involvement.
George Clooney gestured wildly while shooting a scene with Ryan Gosling on the Detroit set of The Ides of March this morning. George directs and stars alongside Ryan in the political drama, and the pair have managed to slip in their fair share of goofing around when they're not in character. Ryan's had a few visitors on and off set, including his dog George, though his rumored lady friend, Olivia Wilde, is now hanging out with newly single Justin Timberlake. Justin and Olivia recently costarred together in Now, and the two were spotted dancing and hanging all over each other at LA's Roxbury this weekend. So, despite the fact that most of you were excited about a possible Ryan and Olivia hookup, he is potentially still on the market!
Win Win's Paul Giamatti and Amy Ryan on Jersey Accents, The Office Finale, and George Clooney's Humor
Paul Giamatti and Amy Ryan play a married couple in Win Win, an endearing story about a stressed-out lawyer whose life changes thanks to a newfound friendship. The movie, which was a favorite at Sundance earlier this year, is out in wide release this Friday, and we caught up with the actors recently in NYC to chat about how they nailed their realistic portrayals of a committed husband and wife with authentic New Jersey accents. Amy also dished about her hopes for the season finale of The Office, while Paul said that, unlike Evan Rachel Wood, George Clooney has yet to anoint him with a nickname on the set of The Ides of March.
