    Nice picture of George

  • Tealeaf

    Yeah Americans are so worthless that’s why there are genocides in other countries and the holocaust happened in Europe…I would rather Americans bash people then burn down there houses or randomly murder them for not being the right race or religion. Also I condemn the people doing dangerous, one on one work with Darfur refugees not famous celebs who breeze in with photographers or give cute speeches in nice suits.

  • Tealeaf

    and I want to add that UN is full of s#$t.. back in 2005 they said Darfur wasn’t a genocide…while they “peacekeep” thousands continue to die.

  • Fabio

    Ok George now I can’t keep arguing about you to whoever will listen now that you are a messenger of peace. I will now go back to my butter spray commercials.

  • Fabio

    I love you George. No hard feeling? Maybe we’ll have brunch in Italy.

  • Georgio

    Yea I agree it’s nice to see trash rise to the top….LOL

    OH where or where is your WHOE?………

  • lovely

    I wonder if George is going to this:

    via Justjared
    Madonna is throwing a party at the UN Wednesday to raise money for UNICEF and Malawi. Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are expected to attend.

    BTW George photographs very well.

  • well

    always thought he favored a mon.key now he talks like one.

  • barbie

    George Clooney is an extremely talented actor, scriptwriter, director and now spokesperson for the UN. Really, I admire him even more. Right now, he could be baking on a sunny isle drinking Coladas and doing ‘sod all’….instead he’s working towards world peace…he should be commended..

  • LMAO

    LMAO @ Fabio!

  • Jan

    He constantly impresses me w/the depth of his knowledge & commitment to causes that many of us in his position wouldn’t bother to spend the time on. Many celebrities can donate publicly or privately. But actually knowing the issues and working to help people who have no voice is a very different thing.

    And by the way, so handsome, love the hair — getting better looking all the time.

  • fyi

    Clooney has an ad coming out during the Superbowl

  • TiredofthisCrap

    Good for George Clooney and the people who lives have been and will be affected by his humanitarian efforts!!!

    @ martaka you answered your own question, why would he have the love of the moment at an event of a lifetime? His parents accompanied him to this event, since he has no wife or at least life partner.

    http://www.popsugar.com has more pictures including ones with his parents and of him in Africa.

  • TiredofthisCrap

    @tealeaf why are you condemning the people( relief and aid workers) who are working to help the people of Darfur? Do you understand what the word condemn means?

    He’s good looking. You just get lost in his eyes :)

    THERE WILL BE NO RED CARPET.

    Clinton vs. Obama: A must-see!
    Latest buzz in H’wood is, ‘Can you get me a ticket?’
    By Paul J. Gough

    Jan 31, 2008

    Thursday night’s Democratic debate at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland is one hot ticket.

    Maybe it’s the prospect of seeing the Democratic field winnowed to the two remaining candidates, Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama, so close to Super Tuesday and the California primary. Maybe it’s the prospect of a fiery debate. Or maybe it’s the fact that Thursday’s event could be the biggest star-studded spectacle so far this year at the Kodak, which next month will host the Oscars — maybe.

    “This debate is so hot, we’re getting more requests for tickets than the Oscars are getting,” said Bob Mulholland, campaign adviser for the California Democratic Party. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

    Whatever it is, the debate’s sponsors — CNN, Politico.com and the Los Angeles Times — have been inundated by requests for tickets for the 2,500 or so available seats in the theater. Many of the tickets were reserved for handing out by the California Democratic Party, which has sanctioned only this debate before Tuesday’s primary.

    The party gave out good seats to such high-profile California Democrats as Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton and California Lt. Gov. John Garamendi. The rest of the party’s stash were handed out by lottery, with thousands of names for only several hundred slots.

    Roughly 500 journalists have been credentialed to cover the event.

    CNN Washington bureau chief David Bohrman acknowledged that there’s been a clamoring for tickets among Hollywood’s elite. But Bohrman, who has produced more than his share of debates over the years at CNN and ABC News, said he isn’t star-struck.

    “You can see celebrities any day, every day in Hollywood. It’s no big deal. The big draw is Clinton vs. Obama,” he said Wednesday amid meeting with the GOP candidates ahead of their debate later in the evening at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, Calif. “That’s the hot ticket. They are not coming to be seen as celebrities.”

    There’s not going to be a red carpet,” he said. “This is really a debate about the future of America.”

  • Beck

    I don’t believe much in GC. Is god the UN causes get more atention through him. But he is uses those causes to atract media to himself, his image. I don’t think he cares.

  • Beck

    Don Cheadle seems truly worried, he is not pretending.

  • jane m

    George Clooney is a handsome, talented movie star. It’s too bad he has deluded himself into thinking that the UN actually cares about Darfur’s pathetic situation. The UN is an ineffectual, corrupted and worthless institution who helps no one when the chips are down. You guys ought to start reading the news. They’ve been denying genocide in Darfur for several years now. It’s all pathetically political and being “correct”. Stick to making movies, George. You are good at that.

    George is stealing Angelina’s thunder. She’ll have to buy Darfur to keep up.

  • grace

  • OMG

    IT IS HARD TO SEE GEORGE IN POLITICS….I DO NOT THINK I CAN SEE PASS THE SEXY FACADE OF HIS,ALTHOUGH HE IS AGEING THAT WILL SO CHANGE EVERYTHING…THEREFORE KEEP IT UP GEORGE!!!

  • Onmyown

    .
    Messanger of Peace – I like that.
    .
    We hear very sad news from Hollywood all the time. This uplift their images. I’m impressed.
    .
    I do hope however that Clooney can bring substance to that title.

  • luckyL

    Cute. And Tealeaf is awesome. Read post #10.

  • TiredofthisCrap

    If George Clooney did not care about the people of Darfur, he would not have gone over there personally to speak with actual refugees. That area is currently unstable and he and the rest of the UN peacekeeping delegation went over there to assess the situation. There is a degree of danger for anyone travelling in that area.

    He could have easily hired a camera crew and let them interview the refugees, but he did it himself. George Clooney wanted to get actual refugees reaction so he could articulate to the world what they need. Will he single-handedly resolve the problem, no. But he is helping by bringing media attenion to the issue and it is up to us to push our legislatures into seeking a resolution. George Clooney is not a politician and aside from raising awareness and money , his hands are tied. Hopefully he has inspired you to write to your legislature to have them work to end this genocide. That is the only way the genocide will end. I’m pretty sure the people of Darfur do not have aproblem with him speaking on their behalf.

    Is it helping his career, no. As a matter of fact he’s been in Africa since the middle of January, there was no press of it until he returned. He could have had pictures sent out, but you would have accused him of doing it for the publicity.

    “They’ve been denying genocide in Darfur for several years now.”

    #10 What is the point of saying that? Are you saying that people should stop trying to help those poor souls??

    My son’s middle school was trying to raise awareness of the plight of Darfur a few years ago. Smart thing to do raising the awareness of a 12 year old. Perhaps when our children become old enough to do something, anything to change or influence so many different horrific conditions in parts of our world they may be moved to do so.

    My son cried when he told me about the genocide in Darfur.

    Try not to be so jaded.

    Many people care about what is going on there and Clooney is one of them.

  • carmen augusta

    My response is directly to #31 not #10.

    My mistake. I would not even bother to respond to #10s rant.
