George Clooney Gets Candid About Drinking, Feeling Lonely, and Brad Pitt in THR

George Clooney is front and center on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue. He's had an exciting award season with The Descendants and The Ides of March so far. He picked up honors at the Golden Globes and Critics' Choice Awards, and grabbed nominations from the SAGs and Academy Awards. George's latest red-carpet appearance was at the BAFTAs over the weekend, though he didn't return home with a statue for either film. He also posed for the cameras solo, since girlfriend Stacy Keibler didn't join him overseas. George talked to THR about feeling lonely even when surrounded by people, the truth about his friendship with Brad Pitt, and why he stopped drinking. Here's more from George in The Hollywood Reporter:

  • On Brad Pitt: "Brad is one of the great guys. We’re good friends, but it’s different from what people think, meaning we don’t spend a lot of time together. He has been to my home in Como; we motorcycle together. But until recently, I hadn’t seen Brad in a year."
  • On quitting drinking: "I drink at times too much. I do enjoy drinking, and there have been times in my life when it’s crossed the line from being fun to having to drink late at night for absolutely no reason. So what I do is, I stop. I haven’t had a drink since New Year’s Eve."
  • On feeling lonely: "Anyone would be lying if they said they didn’t get lonely at times. The loneliest you will get is in the most public of arenas: You will go to a place and end up in the smallest compartment possible, because it’s a distraction to everybody, and you end up not getting to enjoy it like everyone else. I have been infinitely more alone in a bad relationship; there’s nothing more isolating. I have been in places in my life where that has existed."

...forgot Jakey G - just come on out already, I've seen him (with my own eyes) trying to be incognito w/sunglasses, hat and backpack (very touristy) in the Chelsea neighborhood and that alone is laughable (New Yorkers know why)

freedom of speech is a wonderful thing - I believe he's gay, always have and always will (much like Leo D)....I know some PR person thinks all the v*gina's in the world will weep at the loss of those two but they're sooo wrong... this dude is old enough to be a grandpa, give it a rest

NegraGata, My mom and I have said the same, but then again, he seems so liberal, why not be honest if he is?

I wanted to say in "my" opinion, he is one of the most famous closeted male entertainers that I know of... Others don't believe it, I think I am in the minority on this, but something I read years ago made me think this, and I haven't been able to shake it. Again, it is "my" opinion, and opinions are like AHs, everybody has one!!!
