Britt Robertson He is having a very good year, as the three biggest films of his career are released months apart. And they are pretty impressive things for a girl who just turned 25 and who has already gone from starring in a film with Scott Eastwood (the romantic adaptation of Nicholas Sparks, The longest journey), to co-star with Hugh Laurie and George Clooney in one of the most anticipated films of the year, Tomorrowland, and also appear alongside Eddie Muprhy in the drama Cook, directed by Bruce Beresford.
After hanging out with her in Beverly Hills recently, it’s hard to imagine this young star being intimidated by anything. “You’d think someone with the status of George Clooney couldn’t live with a 24-year-old and a 12-year-old girl,” she says of herself and her co-star Raffey Cassidy. But he always treated me like an equal. We had very funny discussions, like when we did the lake scene and he started to pretend the beavers were eating him. It was very funny. George has been doing this for so long and he’s so smart at making movies in every aspect, as a director, producer, or actor. He is always very present and gives you things that other actors would not achieve. He gave me very good advice on how to move forward in my career, knowing that this would be a big thing for me. He said, ‘don’t settle for this movie and wait for something good to happen: use inertia.’
Don’t worry, George. Inertia brings a lot.

Britt Robertson is having a very good year, with the three
biggest films of her career hitting the big screen within a few months of each
other. Pretty heady stuff for the just-turned-25-year-old who’s gone from
starring as the love interest opposite Scott Eastwood in the Nicholas Sparks’
romance adaptation The Longest Ride – to co-starring with Hugh Laurie and
George Clooney in one of the most anticipated summer adventure films,
Tomorrowland – to starring opposite Eddie Murphy in the upcoming drama Cook, directed
by Bruce Beresford.
But hanging out with her in Beverly Hills one recent
afternoon, it’s hard to imagine this bright young rising star is ever intimidated. “You’d think someone of George Clooney’s status
wouldn’t find it as easy to engage with a 24-year-old and a 12-year-old,» she says of herself and co-star Raffey Cassidy. «But
he always treated me like I was an equal. We had some really funny banter
though, like when we had the lake scene and he kept pretending that he was
being eating alive by beavers, which was pretty funny. George has been
doing this for so long and he’s really smart about film-making on all sides of
it as a director, as a producer, as an actor. He’s really in the moment and you
can get things from him that you wouldn’t get maybe from another actor. He gave
me some great advice on how to handle myself from this point forward, knowing
that this would be a pretty big deal for me. He said to me, ‘Don’t just ride on
this movie and hope that it does something good for you; get some momentum.’» Don’t worry George, momentum she has.
