In an interview with Extra, Ryan Gosling exposes prankster George Clooney, who directed him in the political drama The Ides of March, which opens the Venice Fest: "He will come up to you and tell you something very serious ... and then he'll walk away and you realize your pants are wet. He's had like an Evian spray bottle. He's been spraying your crotch the whole time." Gosling's promo duties on his new film Crazy Stupid Love (July 29), with co-stars Steve Carrell and Emma Stone, kept him from attending the Drive panel at Comic-Con.

In an interview with Extra, Ryan Gosling exposes prankster George Clooney, who directed him in the political drama The Ides of March, which opens the Venice Fest: "He will come up to you and tell you something very serious ... and then he'll walk away and you realize your pants are wet.

Gosling's promo duties on his new film Crazy Stupid Love (July 29), with co-stars Steve Carrell and Emma Stone, kept him from attending the Drive panel at Comic-Con.

-Also not expected at the Con was Peter Jackson, who announced that The Hobbit was not ready to make a Con appearance, but promised that he will be “there in force next year.” UPDATE: Producer Jackson did turn up, finally, to help director Steven Spielberg promote The Adventures of Tintin.

In the meantime, Jackson continues posting production videos for the Lord of the Rings prequels to his Facebook page on the filming experience. The transformations from actors to dwarves is hilarious.

-The Hollywood Reporter released an expose on the expose on the Church of Scientology’s property holdings, reporting that the church has a real estate portfolio valued at $400 million and is the biggest owner of historic buildings in Hollywood"

Over the years, the church has transformed its Hollywood properties -- which include a former luxury hotel, apartment building, church and hospital -- into facilities that house everything from classrooms and chapels to production space, a health spa and an upscale French restaurant.
