Daniel Craig, George Clooney and Matt Damon land the February cover of Vanity Fair, which was shot by Annie Leibovitz. The three actors sat down for Vanity Fair’s Proust Questionnaire, and gave candid answers. I think they make a pretty hot cover, but I second Celebitchy’s sentiment in wanting to see Michael Fassbender or Ryan Gosling on the cover instead.
For the first time ever, Vanity Fair pits three of Hollywood’s most fascinating leading men against one another for that signature illuminating interrogation of ours, the Proust Questionnaire—and the monthly back-page feature proves even more revelatory when offered in triplicate, from George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Daniel Craig.
If George Clooney could choose what to come back as, it would be his dog—as the actor states, “he lives better.” The Descendants lead also admits to being displeased with his posture and considers patience the most overrated virtue.
Daniel Craig values patience in his friends above all, but doesn’t like his knees, and you’ll never guess what he considers his most treasured possession—but then, we can’t really be sure. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star admits that he lies when answering questionnaires.
Matt Damon, who played a widower twice this year, in Contagion and We Bought a Zoo, is focused on family off the camera—he says that he was happiest in bed making his four children and in the hospital watching them being born. He says that his greatest achievement is his marriage, that his real-life heroes are his parents, and that his favorite names are those of his wife and children. He and Clooney both wish they could play instruments, while the more practical Craig only wishes he had opposable toes.
