Also, Foster will appear in the Graham Norton Show sometime next week I think.


Edit, link to when Jodie says she won't talk about her actors pay:

that was awkward, jodie was really unprepared to respond to that question...

but honestly, it makes perfect sense that george was paid more: he surely has more screen-time and was on set for more days. even if it looks like they were involved in the promotion in the same way (they did the same press outlets and julia even did the ellen show while he skipped all the american talkshows).

this pay equality conversation in movies doesn't make any sense to me: it's obvious that julia got paid much more than clive owen for duplicty (she got 15 millions, he got what, 4 millions?) even if they probably worked the same amount of time. but she was THe selling point of the movie.
julia and george are equally famous and respected so both would deserve the same pay in a movie like duplicty, but here it makes sense that he got more money...

The journalist tricked Foster. He insisted on the film having two major stars, equally established and very well known, and both lead (we know the movie is being sold as a George and Julia picture) so naturally they would get paid alike. The problem, I think, is that the studio wanted a big name for the male part and a lesser name for the female part. So the budget was set accordingly. And when George brought Julia, I think they could not allow more expenses.

Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide • Week Of 5/13/2016

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The very late night CBS talk show currently helmed by English actor and comedian James Corden had a very good week on YouTube thanks to a star-studded installment of its Carpool Karaoke series. Gwen Steafin joined Corden on his morning drive to work and the pair picked up George Clooney and Julia Roberts along the way. The 14-minute episode quickly amassed an eight-figure view count and helped The Late Late Show‘s YouTube channel to a 187% week-over-week increase in views, more than 46.9 million views on the week, and the #48 spot on the worldwide chart.

Foster and O'Conell are in Berlin to promote the movie.

Do you think Julia or/and George will do other Europeaan cities? But I am almost sure Jodie will continue the promo by herself.

Money Monster producers talk George Clooney and Julia Roberts' electric chemistry


When Money Monster producers Daniel Dubiecki and Lara Alameddine of The Allegiance Theater set out to cast their tense financial thriller, they had only one person in mind to play the smooth-talking TV host Lee Gates: George Clooney.

Money Monster follows Gates as he’s taken hostage live on air by a viewer (Jack O’Connell), and the actor playing Gates had to play both the arrogant, wise-cracking TV host and the humbled captive trying to solve a crisis.

“This is a testament to George, that he has to find himself being less likable than he normally comes off,” says Dubiecki, who also produced the Clooney-starring Up In The Air. “But we always knew that the character had to earn the audience’s compassion and win you over, and that’s something George owns in spades over almost any other movie star you can think of.”

But once Clooney was locked in, Dubiecki, Alameddine, and director Jodie Foster had to find an actress to play Patty Fenn, Gates’ problem-solving producer. So, they decided to reunite one of Hollywood’s most beloved on-screen duos, putting Clooney and Julia Roberts together for the first time since Ocean’s Twelve in 2004.

“The world has kind of been waiting for another moment for George and Julia to come together on screen,” Dubiecki says.

“No matter how much or how little time together they have, you always want more,” Alameddine adds. “They have this amazing chemistry and unspoken history together, and it was a no brainer to have them together on screen. He’s a brilliant actor, he’s a movie star, and he emanates so much, and you had to cast somebody who can match that. And Julia is a strong woman who holds her own, and they can go toe to toe. There’s not a lot of actors out there, men or women, who can play at that level.”

While casting Clooney and Roberts was important, both Alameddine and Dubiecki say that the intensity and timeliness of the script was their biggest focus, and they both worked with financial advisers to learn everything they could about Wall Street’s modern algorithmic trading system.

“There was something really powerful in the message of it because at the end of the day, this guy comes in because he feels that the system is rigged,” Alameddine says. “I think that’s very much in the climate of today. People are very frustrated with different types of systems, and there was something that – no matter who you are – you can connect to.”

Once the script was set, and they locked in their stars and director, the rest of the project was smooth sailing — with one weather-related hiccup. During the shoot last year, a winter storm shut down much of New York City, and although the crew were safely filming inside, things did get a bit chilly.

“I think on one day, it was like 4 degrees outside,” Dubiecki says. “The heater broke, and the air conditioning was running. It was ridiculous.”
