“There’s this strange thing that’s happened over the last 25 or 30 years where there’s this decision being made that women aren’t able to carry the box office. Now, ‘Bridesmaids’ has proved that to be bullshit, and ‘The Help’ has proven it to be bullshit. But it’s much harder to get a film with a woman lead made. When a man hits 40 is when roles just begin to happen. And for women it doesn’t happen. I find that to be a very concerning issue.”

– George Clooney continues to do what he does second best (after acting) in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly – making women swoon. Clooney sounds a little bit like a politician to me here — while he very well may be quite concerned about the status of women in Hollywood, it also sounds like he’s pandering a bit to a sizable portion of his fan base. Prove me wrong, George! I know — why doesn’t he step behind the camera again (his third biggest talent, as displayed in the well-done “Ides of March”) and direct a female lead himself? Another movie with Tilda Swinton, perhaps? Or Vera Farmiga? Or Helen Mirren? That would be rad. Just a thought. [Entertainment Weekly]
