Clooney, Damon and Craig are Vanity Fair’s Leading Men – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Vanity Fair teased the cover of its latest issues, celebrating the power of three dashing leading men in George Clooney, Matt Damon and Daniel Craig. We have the full image, photographed by the legendary Annie Leibovitz, below.

As part of the magazine’s February issue, Clooney, Damon and Craig participate in the Proust Questionnair, revealing insights into their personalities that might not be evident from what we see on screen.

For example, the star of “The Descendants” jokes that if he could come back from the dead in another form, it would be as his dog because “he lives better.” Craig, meanwhile, takes a break from Bond to explain that he values patience in his friends above all, but doesn’t like his knees. And you’ll never guess what he considers his most treasured possession.

As for Damon, the star of “Contagion” and “We Bought a Zoo” says that his greatest achievement is his marriage, that his real life heroes are his parents, and that his favorite names are those of his wife and children. He and Clooney both wish they could play instruments, while the more practical Craig only wishes he had opposable toes.

There’s plenty more in the issue, which you’ll want to pick up if you see it at a newsstand.

Clooney, meanwhile, is having an excellent Tuesday, as his films “The Descendants” and “The Ides of March” earned crucial nominations from the Producers Guild of America. Learn more here.
