Oh, how I keep going back to that interview over and over again! Now I have a surprise for you, there is more of our conversation with George Clooney! No, I was not keeping it for myself. I was just waiting for you to go watch it with your families before I shared it all because there are some things that could be spoilers. I just didn’t want to ruin it for you. #TomorrowlandEvent
Just like the first time we set off to Tomorrowland with George Clooney in part 1 of our interview, part 2 comes full of all the charm, down to earth personality and humor of George Clooney. Let’s just plunge into it. George Clooney Interview Reveals Behind the Scenes Fun on filming Tomorrowland
During part 1 of our interview, we covered his favorite scenes to film, which were at the farm house. Now the question was about the fun memories filming Tomorrowland. Joking he starts his answer like this:
GEORGE CLOONEY: “I don’t remember much of it. I was drunk most of the time. [LAUGHING.]. I will tell you, there was a lot of moments, because it wasn’t all done to green screen. They were nice enough to build a lot of these sets where you actually got to play in them. The most fun we had was the driving sequences because we’re being towed but Raffey is driving and I keep having to teach her to keep looking at the road. It was fun because there was no technology. It was just old fashioned, three people sitting in a truck for five days, arguing and doing fun stuff. And that’s really fun for actors, because you don’t have to do any make believe. It’s all just right there.”
To this he ads it was fun having to shove sugar powder packs down Casey’s (Britt Robertson) throat.
GEORGE CLOONEY: “we must have done, I don’t know, 30 takes, and every time I go, here you go. [LAUGHING plus motions to putting powder over someone]”
Additionally, he shares how Britt Robertson had to gulp down two cokes at once in one of the scenes. That took about 3 takes of her drinking at least 9 cokes one after the other. He thought she was going to explode! I would have thought the same thing 🙂
We were curious what is was for a star like Mr. Clooney to work with young actors. His answer starts out with laughter again:
GEORGE CLOONEY: “I didn’t like them. I’ll say that… [LAUGHING.] Now, we can say nice things now, but the truth is I don’t care for them. [LAUGHING.] Well, first of all, Britt is fantastic and, her career is just at the very beginning and is going to be really fun. Raffey is spectacular. She was just 12 at the time, I think, and way too talented for her age, and sweet and funny. It is fun for me because if you’d seen me speaking to 12 year old the way I speak to her at the grocery store, you’d call child services. [LAUGHING.]. We’re a little family of three, but she’s the adult driving the car, and and Britt and I are the two kids, arguing and bickering all the time. They were fantastic, and they were really sweet and I think they’re having a really fun time with this which is how it’s supposed to be. When I work with younger actors, I always have to try to remind them that this is the fun kind of job that most people don’t get to do. If you get to be an actor, and somebody pays you for it, you’ve caught the brass ring”.
For the final question, we were curious about any scenes that were emotionally difficult for him to work on in Tomorrowland.
GEORGE CLOONEY: “Emotionally hard, no. Because I find movies in general aren’t emotional. You’re involved in them but it’s not really something honestly terrible has happened. It is still make believe but I did find that it was a tricky scene where I have to let Raffey’s character go, the robot go, and there was a really weird feeling. We’d shot it once and she kind of clicks out, but her eyes are open still and we drop her out, and it literally feels like I’m murdering her. It was odd. It’s so disturbing and it was really awful, so we went back and re-did it where she sort of completely goes out, because otherwise it really felt horrible”.
