The things you learn at an Oscars luncheon.
For starters, George Clooney is the friend you want to have in your corner when you need a swanky honeymoon spot.
The best actor Oscar nominee revealed that he loaned his villa in Italy out to best actress Oscar nominee Viola Davis so she and her husband could have a newlyweds getaway. "It was so romantic," Davis said.
Elsewhere, Rooney Mara was jetting in from Indianapolis, just in time for the luncheon. The best actress nominee had been at the Super Bowl, rooting for the Giants, as her family co-owns the team. Guess she's not into acting for the money.
But best actor nominee Gary Oldman confessed that he has taken roles for the payday:
"The villains are the ones you do for money," he said. "They're expensive. Or they will be now," he added, alluding to a salary bump he'll likely get now that he's an Oscar nominee.
