    George Clooney: The Descendants Ruined My Masculinity!

    George Clooney, The Descendents Fox Searchlight

    George Clooney is one of Hollywood's hottest leading men.

    But he doesn't always feel like it.

    In fact, there was a time not so long ago when the A-list actor and two-time Sexiest Man Alive didn't feel so macho at all...

    We're talking about his running in flip-flops sequence in The Descendants.

    "I don't run great in flip-flops," Clooney said at last night's New York Times' TimesTalks Q&A at the SilverScreen Theater in West Hollywood. "It was a little frustrating because I did it the first time in those shoes and I thought it would be funny and I was sort of screwing around.

    "Then [director] Alexander [Payne] seemed to like it and I realized I would have to do it a lot more," he continued. "And I also realized it would sort of end all masculinity for me for the rest of my life!"

    Meanwhile, Clooney couldn't help pulling pranks while on set in Hawaii. The 50-year-old prankster liked to break out his handy-dandy fart machine, but 20-year-old breakout starlet Shailene Woodley wasn't fazed a bit.

    "There's really only one kid actor [in the film], Amara [Miller]," Clooney said. "Shailene was the adult on set. I've got the fart machine and she was like, 'Really? Put that away, we gotta work.'"
