Behind the Scenes of THR's George Clooney Cover Shoot
George Clooney says he wanted to do The Descendants primarily because he wanted to work with director Alexander Payne. Not ony is George up for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role but the film is also nominated for Best Picture at this year's Academy Awards.
When talking about Payne's previous movies, George added, "I thought all four films were great, he hadn't made a bad film so I wanted to work with him."
