+ CLOONEY'S NEW GIRL!

GEORGE'S NEW SQUEEZE

The Casanova has a bella nuova: Sarah Larson, 28, Clooney's date at the Venice and Deauville film festivals. "He couldn't keep his hands off her," says someone who saw them at Venice's Hotel Cipriani, site of the afterparty for Clooney's Michael Clayton. Larson—a onetime Fear Factor winner who works as a cocktail waitress at Las Vegas's Palms Casino Resort, where Ocean's Thirteen had its premiere June 6—also dined with Matt Damon and other Clooney pals in France Sept. 1. Says a source: "She's generally liked by George's friends."

"It's one of the great cities in the world; the festival is just so much fun. I always have a great time here"

SO LONG, VENICE... HELLO, DEAUVILLE!

After Venice some of Hollywood's finest zipped over to France for the Deauville American Film Festival. Matt Damon (with wife Luciana by his side) was all smiles while promoting The Bourne Ultimatum, while Pitt and Jolie (far right) were on hand to support Pitt's film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
