When we ran into Harvey Weinstein (and his lovely bride, Georgina) at the MoMA screening of Leatherheads last night, we asked him if he (like everyone) had ever been a victim of a practical joke by star George Clooney. His answer delighted us:
I did From Dusk Til Dawn with George Clooney, and we did the first movie that George directed, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, and as a Hillary Clinton supporter, I know he’s secretly a Hillary Clinton supporter, and he is playing one big practical joke by supporting Barack Obama. I know that down deep where he lives, he’s really supporting me and knows that I’m the right guy to choose political people.
Hear that, Hollywood? A vote for Hillary is a vote for Harvey. And that’s not a promise. It’s a threat. — Bennett Marcus
