Leave it to George Clooney to laugh at Gwyneth Paltrow’s expense!
The 52-year-old actor decided to make a jab at the actress while he and Julia Roberts talked to Vanity Fair behind the scenes of their shoot for the annual Hollywood issue.
When asked how it feels to be on this year’s cover, Julia said, “It’s cool,” as she turned to George – who just couldn’t contain himself.

“I’m very excited. I think it’s going to be fun,” he said, adding, “It’s what Gwyneth Paltrow told me to say.”
With that, the 41-year-old actress – who looks nothing short of stunning – turns to the camera, drops her mouth open and laughs.
(Seriously, her expression is priceless.)
Naturally, George the charmer smirks before he follows Julia’s lead.
So why’d he poke fun at Gwyn?
On Tuesday – the same day this video was released – the magazine’s editor, Graydon Carter, cleared the air about the hysteria that erupted over an article about the actress last year.
In case you missed it, the article was rumored to be an “epic takedown” of the star, revealing tales of alleged infidelity and drama with her famous friends.

The New York Times even revealed the mother-of-two apparently sent an e-mail to her loved ones asking them to boycott the mag.
Carter reveals the piece, written by Vanessa Grigoriadis, was a “reasoned, reported essay” and the conversation he had with the blonde beauty afterward in October was composed.
“We talked for about 20 minutes about the story and her reaction, or over-reaction, to it,” he writes.
“At one point, she asked my advice as to what to do to get the ‘haters’ on her side. I suggested putting on 15 pounds. I joked that it works for me. She replied I had put on much more than that. …Two months after the phone call, websites lit up with news of a truce.”
He also shot down the rumor that Gwyn asked George Clooney to stay away – which, if this current cover [see above] is any proof, he did not.
But for all you “haters” out there, you’ll always have this.
