  • LOVEHIM

    I just love clooney!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • luckyL

    I love the ripple affect Angelina and Brad’s work has created to having people thinking of solving problems that affect us internationally and becoming ambassadors. Wonderful job George.

  • luckyL

    It’s so cute how he and Brad are such Hollywood buds after Ocean’s 11,12, and 13.

  • jude

    HE IS NO ANGIE NO ONE WILL LISTEN TO HIM GO HOME!!!!!!!!!!!

  • trust him

    I trust George Clooney much more then I trust Angie and Brad. I believe everything they do is for press. George seems to really care about people, not just for publicity.

  • it’s about time

    Jude – you and I agree on one thing he is no Angie, and I say Thank God. She is a loser and that is why she is being replaced.

  • King George

    Jude – people will listen to him before they will listen to Angie, she is a punch line, she cannot be taken seriously. Her words are all scripted.

  • you must be kidding

    LuckyL – his being an embassador has nothing to do with Angie, he has been involved with these causes for a very long time. He just doesn’t call the press to inform them. Don’t give credit when none is due.

  • eirrac

    Wow, i never thought i would say this, but he is getting old! Dayum

  • KIng George

    George Clooney is a great speaker and he truly cares. Unlike Skank girl who cares only about herself.

    Jolie has been doing her UN work YEARS long before Brad or George followed the trend. What you just said made me laugh and pity your ignorance.

  • TiredofthisCrap

    Sheesh, why do people even try to compare George Clooney to Angelina Jolie. They are two different people with two different causes and concerns. George Clooney has been actively trying to end the genocide in Darfur. Angelina Jolie brings attention to children in third world countries who need a spokesperson to voice their needs. Actually people do listen to George Clooney, that is why he is being appointed a UN Messenger of Peace.

    Can’t we have a Clooney post without mentioing Pitt or Jolie, you don;t see me posting comments about George Clooney in their posts.

  • Maria (Shorty)

    Angie and Brad had nothing to do with George’s charity and volunteering with UN projects. He was doing this years before Angie and Brad. I adore all three of them, but I just had to set the record straight here. Let’s give credit where credit is due.

    Now, that being said………didn’t Brad & Angie look drop dead gorgeous and the SAG awards? Looooved them and Looooved that kiss!!

  • luckyL

    #9, oh goodness gracious, he has said himself he admires their work and the publicity they’ve brought to domestic and global issues (though he specified in his accolades). If he has been involved, that’s even more fantastic. However, they are all Hollywood buds and all admire one another and despite the bickering and nay-sayers here. They will continue to be happy and supportive of one another–AND continue to admire one another’s GENUINE humanitarian work.

  • trust him

    Hey fan I don’t care how long Angie has been doing this, George has been involved with these causes long before Angie, check your facts.

  • fan

    Jude – you and I agree on one thing he is no Angie, and I say Thank God. She is a loser and that is why she is being replaced.
    ———–
    Being replaced?? She never held this title.. She’s an ambassador, that’s something different. She also has done more humanitarian work than Clooney. She even give 1/3 of her income to charity.

  • luckyL

    And I’m pretty sure he just recently became a “messenger of peace” and not even an ambassador.

    “Clooney is active in advocating a resolution of the Darfur conflict.[22] His efforts include an episode of Oprah and speaking at the Save Darfur rally in Washington, D.C., on April 30, 2006.

    In 2006, he was involved in several events to highlight the issue. In April, he spent ten days in Chad and Sudan with his father to make a film in order to show the dramatic situation of Darfur’s refugees. In September, he spoke in front of the Security Council of the U.N. with Nobel Prize-winner Elie Wiesel to ask the U.N. to find a solution to the conflict and to help the people of Darfur.[23] In December, he made a trip to China and Egypt with Don Cheadle and two Olympic winners to ask both governments to pressure Sudan’s government.[24]

    Clooney is involved with Not On Our Watch, an organization that focuses global attention and resources to stop and prevent mass atrocities, along with Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, and Jerry Weintraub.[25] He narrated and was co-executor producer of the documentary “Sand and Sorrow.[26]”

    It looks like he starts that all in 2006 and with his CO-STARS and NOT BEFORE that year. Okay thanks.

    Either way, Jolie was doing her humanitarian work YEARS before Clooney jumped onto the bandwagon.

    I commend THEM ALL for their humanitarian work and NOT BICKERING and ADMIRING one another’s work and being inspired BY ONE ANOTHER.

    Clooney only started his humanitarian work in 2006. While Jolie was since 2001.

    I can’t believe the hatred towards Angie on this thread. She is very committed to her work. Read her book. Better yet go to Africa and view what she views. I’ve been there and it is totally heartbreaking.
    No one spends six years of their lives being a UNHCR ambassador for refugees just for publicity’s sake. There are other high profile ambassadors for the refuges that do no more than two events a year, Angie has averaged around 10 a year. Go to the UN site and check the refugee link out.
    George Clooney has his own causes and more power to him. Same with Brad and NOLA-Make it Right. Same with Kidman and her hospital/breast cancer charity work (which she keeps super low key). Bono, Oprah–who cares how they are promoting their causes – at least they are doing something.
    Isn’t it better that all of these folks are doing something to make the world a better place rather than entering rehab every other day, showing their v-aginas, drinking and partying every night at the latest club? I’d far rather support these folks and their movies than Lohan, Spears, Barton, Hilton, and the rest of the latest crop of selfish, self-centered celebu-retards.
    And as another poster said–Jolie, Pitt and Clooney do what they do without sniping at each other. So good is being done by them all. What is wrong with that?

  • for the poor sick souls,,,,

    Kind’ve of funny,I thought this was to praise George on his great work,But jennifer Aniston fans who hate angie and brad are here to use it to post hate on angelina ,poor fools all so jealous because angie has children and Brad and she values her family and aniston only cared for career,and its been almost four years since they broke up and anistons fans are still hating,Poor,poor.lost souls.angie and brad will have babies,family and be happy.jenn and her haters are lost in hatred eternity.hate is a bitch.P.S. LOVE YOU,G.C.

  • LOOK AT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • for the poor sick souls,,,,

    Oh yes,George Clooney is friends to Angelina and Brad.

  • Frenchy

    Last night CNN Showbiz Tonight had a poll that asked who would you like to see as President and George Clooney was one of the choices.

    Passing Through, your man looks hot in India. LOL!!!!!!

    Yeah it is. The ones out there of him with completely white hair seem only to exist in thumbnail form but there is one of him playing basketball shirtless and with this gorgeous almost silver shining hair!!!!! I’m gonna try to locate this. It’s really not bad.. Look at Jay leno and Anderson Cooper.

  • TiredofthisCrap

    Umm that is blonde, not white hair. He dyed his hair blonde years ago. His hair color now is gray. Premature gray runs in his family. Actually once knew a relative of his and her hair was also turning gray in her 30′s.

  • sarah

    It is funny that these GC’s so called fans haven’t read his own interview in Entertainment weekly where he told that he got involved after Brad went to Africa and he told it was Brad who actually made him starting his works in Darfur.so you GC’s fans need to get your fact straight before making fool of yourself.just saying

    btw it is good to see him involved,hope all these works come from his heart not for Oscar.LMAO

  • Helena

    I think he wants that oscar so bad that he’s doing charity work. Sorry, it’s Day-Lewis’s year!

  • TO Helena

    Helena @ 01/29/2008 at 6:18 pm I think he wants that oscar so bad that he’s doing charity work. Sorry, it’s Day-Lewis’s year!

    Now now…this is something I totally agree with. Sory George, it is Daniel Day Lewis year.

  • Tracy

    Good for him. I don’t like his acting and I think he’s aging horribly, but he seems to really care and I’d never slam a person for being politically and socially involved. I think he’s a good guy.

  • bdj

    Wow!!! people will make a competition out of anything,even helping others. Let people help in the way they know how and shine a spotlight on trouble areas, refuges, wars and strife. The more people involved, the better.

  • anonymous

    i am so happy to hear that not only he is handsome he is a very nice guy as well and most of all he is so credible and if any one could pull it off it going to be him , way to go george.

    ———————————————————————————————–you are so clue less , at least get your information before comment because you seem so shallow, george was doing all these from years ago, he didn’t start them now .

  • anonymous

    and stop jealousy .

  • Anon

    I think this is the same title the UN conferred on Michael Douglas., who still travels and does stuff on behalf of the UN. George will make a fine Ambassador. He’d also make an outstanding President of the United States. How cool would that be!!!!!

  • Okay?

    He’s our generation’s Cary Grant. That suit is soo North by Northwest. Those who are into films know what I’m talking about.

  • ;urker
  • Casey

    This has nothing to do w/the awards. He knows it’s Daniel Day-Lewis’s year. This has to do w/his passion to do whatever his celebrity can do to help others. And he’s as hot, if not hotter looking than he’s ever been.
    He’s a real “guy”.
