If you look back at the most memorable quotes of 2011, three names consistently pop up: Matt Damon, George Clooney and Daniel Craig. From their takes on politics, personal lives and the grittier side of Hollywood, these three movie stars were unafraid to stray from publicist-approved jargon to say what was really on their mind.
From Damon's criticism of President Obama & "Bourne" screenwriter Tony Gilroy, Craig's bashing of politicians altogether and Clooney's dismissal of a press obsessed with his personal life, they let it fly. That made them perfect candidates to take the Proust Questionnaire, provided by Vanity Fair.
We've got an early copy of the results, and while they say plenty of smart, important and touching things about their families and true selves, we couldn't help but noticing some of their funnier responses. A few of their more serious ones piqued our interest, too. Check out the answers we've selected, and click over to Vanity Fair to learn more. The issue hits news stands in New York and LA on January 4th, and e-Readers on January 10th.
