George Clooney Was Doubly Honored At The Kennedy Center Honors When Julia Roberts Came Wearing His Face
Last night some of the biggest stars in Hollywood gathered in New York City to rub elbows with the Washington elite at the 45th annual Kennedy Center Honors. Due to the pandemic and former president Donald Trump’s boycott of the awards, this is the first big gala in five years and the stars came dressed to impress. This year’s honorees included Gladys Knight and all four of the Irish Pips, sometimes referred to as U2, Christian pop singer Amy Grant, Cuban American composer-conductor Tania León (not to be confused with Lydia Tár, totally different lady), and Nespresso dude George Clooney. There were a couple of surprises at the ceremony. For one, Sacha Baron Cohen showed up in character as Borat even though I thought we had decided as a group after 2020’s presidential election that satire was dead. Also, there was Emma Roberts’ aunt, actress Julia Roberts, who is, apparently, strangely obsessed with George Clooney.
Normal, poor people’s babies wake up in the middle of the night screaming because they’ve shit their pants or they’re just assholes. But babies with very wealthy, good-looking parents who’ve dedicated their lives to philanthropy and social justice must wake up in the middle of the night in an apoplectic fit over the state of the world in #thesetryingtimes. By the time those poor, shitty diaper babies reach the age of reason, they’re really only interested in one thing, and that’s themselves. Ask any random five-year-old on the street about the war in Ukraine, and you’re likely to get a response that might range from a blank stare to a well-deserved kick to the shins because you know damn well you have no business walking up to random five-year-olds on the street! Seriously, what is wrong with you? But, if you ask George and Amal Clooney’s five-year-old son Alexander about the current geo-political crisis that’s unfolding in Europe, he’s gonna tell it to you straight— Vladimir Putin belongs in jail!
George Clooney did an interview with the Guardian to promote his new movie, The Tender Bar, starring Ben Affleck. George discussed fame, raising his 4-year-old twins during the pandemic, politics, his childhood, blah blah blah the usual bullshit. The real takeaway is George sharing that he turned down $35 million to appear in an airline commercial. For just one day’s work! So why’d he turn it down? He already sold his soul for those annoying Nespresso ads. Well, apparently the airline was associated with a country that is “questionable at times” and after a very serious discussion with his wife Amal Clooney, he decided it wasn’t worth it. Oh right, principles. I’m too broke to have those.
George Clooney Wrote An Open Letter To The Daily Mail, Asking Them To Stop Publishing Pictures Of His Kids
When it comes to famous people, some are a-ok with having their kid’s face snapped by the paparazzi (let’s just say they’re big fans of the letter K). Other famous types will gladly let people know that the only acceptable photo of their kids is one that has been pixelated so hard, it looks like a low-resolution Minecraft character. George Clooney likes seeing pictures of his kids show up in the tabloids about as much as he likes Batman & Robin: he doesn’t. And he recently wrote an open letter asking tabloid sites like The Daily Mail to stop posting pictures of his not-famous children.
Last decade, George Clooney became his own real-life version of Sliding Doors when he did the very Alternate Reality George Cooney thing of settling down and getting married to Amal Clooney and having twins who are now 3 years old. Even though George and Amal are celebrities, they gave their twins the very normal names of Alexander and Ella. Being famous is the reason why George and Amal picked those names because Alexander and Ella already being saddled with the pressure that comes from being very wealthy and famous.
George And Amal Clooney Reportedly Claimed They Didn’t Know The Bride And Groom At Prince Harry And Meghan Markle’s Wedding
Usually the guest list of a royal wedding is awash with names like Baron Thumbley Dunsmirk, Lady Queefington, and His Royal Highness Paltry Beefshank of Donkey-Upon-Shrek. A real who’s who of British Hat-Wearing Aristocracy. But when Prince Harry got married to Meghan Markle, their wedding was full of A-list stars and celebrities. Suddenly Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla was rubbing elbows with George Clooney, Serena Williams, and America’s Queen, Oprah. Naturally, it was assumed all those American stars were Meghan’s friends, which had to make you wonder what kind of doors seven seasons on the USA Network could open for a person. As it turns out, maybe some of those huge stars weren’t exactly close friends of the bride after all. Like in the case of George and Amal Clooney, who reportedly told wedding guests they didn’t even know Harry and Meghan.
