In the special-effects-heavy Gravity, most his scenes were shot solo, which George Clooney says suited him just fine.
"I actually like working by myself," he says with a laugh. But what about off-screen? Who is there to keep him warm?
And, on that subject, the often-reticent star is more forthcoming, but only slightly. When it comes to the greatest love of his life, "I haven't met her yet," Clooney, 52, matter-of-factly tells W magazine for its 8th annual Art Issue, on sale as of Dec. 2 (for the cover the Dream Man looks like an Op Art Nightmare in polka dots painted by Yayoi Kusama).

Sometimes even when George Clooney is joking, he can be serious.
The Oscar winner was in a playful mood when PEOPLE caught up with him at the AFI Film Festival premiere of August: Osage County in Hollywood on Friday. Clooney produced the film, which stars his friends Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep, and he spoke to PEOPLE about another pal, Sandra Bullock, who's getting Oscar buzz for her role in their film, Gravity.
"Isn't she great?" he smiled. "I've known Sandy for – she doesn't want me to say – over 25 years."

George Clooney strikes again!
Hollywood's reigning prankster did not disappoint Thursday when he snuck up behind Steven Spielberg, Jerry Seinfeld and Seinfeld's wife, Jessica, for a funny photobomb at the USC Shoah Foundation gala at New York City's American Museum of Natural History.

Without giving away any plot details, how did Sandra Bullock stomach all the weightless special effects she had to contend with while making Gravity – which, with an estimated $55.6 million box-office take this weekend, has set a record for the biggest October movie opening of all time?
Though Bullock had costar George Clooney often at her side, "I would feel sorry for her all the time," director Alfonso Cuarón told the Associated Press about his leading lady.
Lightening that burden, Bullock said, was the warm atmosphere Cuaró provided on the set, which was further enhanced by having her 3½-year-old son, Louis, with her.

When it comes to bonding with Sandra Bullock's 3-year-old son, Louis, George Clooney does it with a game of hoops.
"Louis and I played basketball together," Clooney, 52, told PEOPLE at Tuesday's New York premiere of the space drama Gravity. "There was [director] Alfonso [Cuarón] and Rande Gerber, and Louis would gravitate towards me and the guys and hang with us."
The leading man added, kiddingly: "It was fun, but I wish Sandy would stop telling the story, because it's totally ruining my reputation!"

Sandra Bullock is getting raves for her role as a medical engineer in space in the upcoming film Gravity, but her most important job is still being a mom.
"I can't selfishly take journeys anymore because I have to take a little boy along with me," she told reporters Tuesday at a Los Angeles press junket for the film, out Oct. 4.
Before taking on the role, the actress, 49, told producers she was in – if they made it "an amazing experience" for her son Louis, 3½.
