George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer are just a few of the stars featured in round-table interviews where they discuss their innermost thoughts on their craft, as well as the highs and lows of their careers.

George Clooney stars in "The Descendants"Highlights from the show include:

>> George Clooney: “I remember I was selling women’s shoes at a department store, which is a lousy job… it was 80-year old women like, ‘that’s a hammertoe.’ You’re like ‘I don’t want to see that.’ Acting is not hard work. I cut tobacco for a living in Kentucky. That’s hard work.”

Michelle Williams: “I have worked with a few actors recently who go up to the monitor in-between takes and they watch what they do and then they go back in and tinker with their performance. I thought ‘I’m gonna try that,’ – Brad Pitt stars in "Moneyball"I ran screaming away from that monitor.”

>> Brad Pitt: “This movie [Moneyball] died on the vine so many times. I ended up asking a lot of people to do me this solid and come into this thing. People put their jobs on the line and there was a wee bit of pressure to get it right. I am so happy that the movie has come together. That is a great experience – when you put that much into something and know it’s going to say something and continue to say something in 10 years, 20 years.”

Viola Davis stars in "The Help">> Viola Davis: “With every role I have learned something, even the failures. I really love what I do. It is why I do it. A lot of people can’t say that.”

Charlize Theron: “Sometimes the surprise is the thing you think would be the hardest is sometimes the easiest. Like, the idea of somebody saying, ‘take your clothes off’ was a little frightening – and then I did it andOctavia Spencer stars in "The Help" I was like, ‘oh, okay.’”

>> Octavia Spencer: “I’m glad that I had little opportunities that led to bigger things. And you know, the fact that I am sitting in this room with people that inspire me every day… a year ago I would just been watching, you know it’s wonderful.”
