A former nanny told The National Enquirer that Angelina Jolie hates George Clooney. If it’s true, she’s the only woman on earth.
George Clooney is a star in the classic sense. A ringer for Cary Grant, he would be as comfortable drinking martinis with Frank Sinatra as he would be sharing a bottle of whisky with Daniel Day-Lewis. Time magazine called him “The Last Movie Star,” and we’d agree. He wears his celebrity easily and doesn’t complain about being in the public eye. While other celebrities are worried about seeming aloof enough, he’s open, friendly and direct. From what we can tell, George Clooney has a great life and appreciates it.
George Clooney is a guy’s guy who drives a motorcycle and doesn’t dye his hair. He doesn’t go on fad diets, he grows a beard from time to time and women adore him for all of the above.
Learn what being George Clooney is about and you’re bound to drive women wild.
Know how to laugh at yourself
It’s widely rumoured that George Clooney is the person who circulated “Jesus vs. Santa” (the video greeting card that birthed the show South Park). When the cartoon became a series, Clooney agreed to guest star as Stan Marsh’s gay dog Sparky. He had no dialogue and only made dog noises. When the show’s creators later lampooned him for being too political in Team America, Clooney laughed it off and said he would have been offended if he hadn’t been a target. Seeing how well he reacted, the press began asking if he’d consider running for office and he replied honestly: “No. I’ve slept with too many women, I’ve done too many drugs and I’ve been to too many parties.” Instead of trying to be a “star” in interviews, he laughs at his own celebrity. He joked that Leatherheads was “cry for peace.” When asked about reconciling George Clooney the actor and George Clooney the director, he said: “There’s a lot of ego there… so I just take it out on the actors.”
Being George Clooney: George Clooney is great example of putting your ego in check. The worst thing you can do when someone teases you is to get angry. It proves you’re sensitive to their jabs because you’re not comfortable with yourself. Clooney knows he’s the sh*t, so he can joke about himself. Being George Clooney means that if someone teases you about wearing the same T-shirt too often, you have to laugh it off and say that it proves you’re not afraid of serious relationships… at least with clothing. Similarly, if things aren’t going well on a date, you’ll exasperate things by getting frustrated. Put a smile on your face and crack a joke. Even if it doesn’t fix things with your date, you may fool yourself into having a better time.
Stand by your ideals
Celebrities who make a show of being political annoy people, but George Clooney actually walks the walk. On January 31, 2008, the United Nations selected him to promote global awareness of its activities and named him a “Messenger of Peace.” He’s a true environmentalist, owning the first Tango electric car and, more recently, the electric Tesla Roadster. Some would argue that it’s easy to stand by convictions when you’re famous. However, before his hit show ER, Clooney quit Baby Talk, the TV version of Look Who’s Talking, because he felt an actress was being unfairly humiliated. He recalled the event for People: “I remember calling my agent and I said, ‘What happens if I walk away from this? Do I end my career? He said, ‘I don’t know.’ And I thought, ‘It’s worth it.’”
Being George Clooney: No woman likes a man with weak convictions. Even if she doesn’t agree with you, she’ll respect you more if you don’t waffle on beliefs. Likewise, standing up for others isn’t easy, particularly when your career is on the line, but you’ll sleep better at night. Being George Clooney will require you to be an upright citizen.
Being George Clooney might make some cringe, but there are a lot of perks that come with it…
