Matt Damon Talked About The Time Kennedy Center Honoree, George Clooney, Shit In Richard Kind’s Cat’s Litter Box
The 45th Annual Kennedy Center Honors already happened earlier this month, and those who’ve given us a lifetime of contributions in the entertainment arena, like U2 and George Clooney, were some of this year’s honorees. And if by “lifetime contributions” they meant “your iTunes is still fucked all the way up and always will be for the rest of your lifetime by the unsolicited disbursal of U2’s Songs of Innocence album,” then yeah, I guess U2 qualifies. But not to be outdone by U2’s tomfoolery, honoree, and one of the “world’s most handsome men,” George Clooney also did some shady shit in his storied time in the biz–literally. While giving a speech about his good friend, George, Matt Damon’s KCH speech touched on the time that George took a big girthy dump in fellow actor Richard Kind’s kitty litter box back in the day when they were roommates. Stars–they’re just like us!
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.
The Kennedy Center is one of those American institutions we don’t really pay much attention to until that one time a year when they announce their honorees and we see some assortment of legends decked out in rainbow ribbons like they’re making an appearance at the world’s most staid pride parade. Well, leave it to Donald Trump to ruin a thing we barely care about! While he’s not swapping out their signature rainbow ribbon for a bright red MAGA lanyard (yet), he will make 10 new appointments to their board of trustees. One is Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ dad, and the other is Angelina Jolie’s dad. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jon Voight and Mike Huckabee are just about to get a six-year term on the board handed to them on a silver platter. Thank god Cher was already honored last year. Otherwise her name might not have come up again until 2024!
