George Clooney has “chemistry” with all his female co-stars.

The Hollywood hunk - who appears alongside Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga in ‘Up In The Air’ - has an automatic connection with all of his screen lovers, who can’t help but be attracted to him.

Vera - who plays his screen lover Alex - said: “I’ll tell you, it’s impossible not to have chemistry with George Clooney.

“He’s a goofball. He’s a clown. It’s just so good to be in his presence, and as a scene partner, anything goes. It’s a real circus with him on set. It’s carefree and loving and warm.”

Mariah Carey’s facial worries

Mariah Carey has had a complex about her face since she was 19.

The 40-year-old singer admits she has always been self-conscious about her appearance after somebody at her record company pointed it out.

She said: “I remember starting out and being at a record company at 19 and having someone tell me, ‘This is your good side and this is your bad side. Don’t ever let anyone take pictures of you from that side. You look terrible from that side,’ and so on. It created this whole complex - like I didn’t already have a complex!”

Mariah - whose mother is Irish-American and her father was an African-American of Venezuelan descent - says she has always been insecure about her looks because she’s mixed-race.

He said: “I’m prepared, mentally. Have I painted the nursery? Er, no… I haven’t done too much. My woman has done all the hard stuff. We have clothes that people have given us. We have a crib ready… birth is a beautiful thing.

“Making an album can be like being pregnant: you want to pop that thing out and show everybody!”

Silent girlfriend Kimberley Walsh

Kimberley Walsh sometimes doesn’t speak to her boyfriend for days.

The Girls Aloud beauty - who has been with beau Justin Scott for six years - says she doesn’t feel the need to talk to him on a daily basis if they’re not together.

Talking about touring with the girl group, she said: “You just have to adapt to being back on your own for a bit. I think it’s quite healthy to know how to be on your own. Some people need to speak to their boyfriends three, four, five times a day and we’re just not like that. We literally don’t speak for days, but we will text. If you’re doing the same thing every day, to call for the sake of calling just to say the same things, there seems no point.”

However, Justin admits the distance between them can sometimes make an argument last longer than it normally should.
