In a race that was considered to be a battle of the A-listers, George Clooney took home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for “The Descendants.”

After an evening of joking about his celebrity best bud, George Clooney opened his acceptance speech by letting Brad Pitt know exactly what he thought of him.

“I wanted to say it’s nice to see Brad, and it’s nice to be able to tell him not just what wonderful work he’s doing in two films this year,” Clooney said. “But what wonderful work he does in the rest of the world to the rest of the people.”

Pitt, who was nominated for “Moneyball,” and Clooney emerged as the front-runners in the category soon after the nominees were announced last month, and their well-documented friendship came to dominate the conversation around the race.

Earlier in the evening, Clooney borrowed the cane Pitt used throughout the evening, seemingly to poke fun at his friend.

Brad Pitt has been sporting a cane over the past couples of weeks, but he had to go without at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night – for just a few minutes.

Fellow Hollywood star George Clooney swiped Pitt’s prior to hitting the stage at the 69th annual awards show.

The crowd giggled as Clooney walked on stage with the cane. While introducing a clip from Pitt’s “Moneyball,” Clooney started waving the cane around, garnering big laughs from the audience. “I have to give it back to him,” he said. “He can’t make it to the bar otherwise.”

Angelina Jolie covers Marie Claire’s new January 2012 issue. The director of In the Land of Blood and Honey spoke with the magazine about her first-ever time behind the camera, then segued into more personal topics.

Angelina spoke about how Brad Pitt is more than just the love of her life, and also said she “could end up pregnant” and further expand their family. Additionally, Angelina spoke about how she’s really a homebody and doesn’t have too many female friends.

Angelina Jolie told Marie Claire:
• On her bond with Brad: “[Brad] has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I’ve learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own. I’m very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn’t have that without him.”

Matt Damon – Parade interview December 2011:

Despite his movie star status, Damon keeps his life private, especially compared to some of his famous friends.
“Brad and Angie, there’s much more pressure on them than there is on me. He [Pitt] asked me what my everyday is like. I said, ‘Well, I grab the kids from school, and then we go over to the park.’ And he was just looking at me, like, ‘How can you do that?’ Because he can’t.”

On the paparazzi plaguing his famous friends.
“Brad [Pitt] has told me stories. . . . He threw a cheeseburger at somebody. The guy had followed him to the drive-thru and Brad was like, ‘Can I just eat my cheeseburger?’ The guy pulled up next to him and Brad ended up throwing it at him, and they both looked at each other in total shock for a long moment. Neither of them could believe that it happened, you know? And then the guy went to raise his camera, and Brad sped off. So he did not get the picture. Brad left that experience feeling like, ‘Well, I didn’t get to eat my cheeseburger. I really wanted it.’

While both men agreed they wished Brad Pitt was a huge jerk, Jonah Hill tried to convince Jon Stewart that it simply wasn’t so. How could a man be that handsome and a great guy? Alas, according to Hill on ‘The Daily Show’, that’s exactly what he is.

He even let Hill stay in his house in New Orleans for months while Hill was filming a movie. Hill did admit to having a lot of fun with the tourists who were stopping to see the famous Brad Pitt house. They’d get all psyched when he pulled up, and then confused and let down to see that it was just him.

When Stewart asked if Angelina Jolie was staying at the house as well — was Pitt that nice? — Hill had to admit that there is a limit to what Pitt was willing to give.
