George Clooney Slams Reports that Amal Alamuddin's Mother Opposes Their Wedding on Religious Grounds

George Clooney Slams Reports that Amal Alamuddin's Mother Opposes Their Wedding on Religious Grounds

George Clooney is all smiles while taking a stroll on Tuesday (July 8) in Lake Como, Italy.

The 53-year-old actor was joined on the walk by Argo and Monuments Men producer Grant Heslov. We wonder what they are working on next!

George just published an op-ed for USA Today in which he responded to a Daily Mail story that fiancee Amal Alamuddin‘s mother has been against their wedding from the start.

“This lie involves larger issues,” George wrote. “The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous. We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal.”

I get the indignation, but i don’t think the people who he speaks about who might incite violence don’t need much of a reason to do it…

Clooney, you really need to just avoid responding to tabloid gossip. Follow Brad and Angie’s philosophy and just live your life. Don’t take the bait and give the tabloids the satisfaction that they got under your skin. Lies are always going to be printed about you. That’s just one of the unpleasant aspects of being a celebrity. Learn to let it go and move on. Life’s too short. Even when you have an Italian villa on Lake Como. So why ruin it?

# 3

Note to Clooney….the world does not give a crap about what people are saying about your future mother in-law and her religion!!! Your future family better get used to this type of stuff without crying a river to you.

# 4

I didn’t read the article so don’t know what it said and I read that its been removed. I think he is right to call them out for inciting violence and here we have some daily mail jerks (1-3) who probably wrote it getting in a big huff. Get off the thread losers its not for you. you had your chance and you blew it with your stupid daily mail article and you proved you deserve to be fired.

He also spoke out about the fact that he was drunk. He needs to stop responding to every tabloid report. Makes him look Whitney and undignified.

# 6

A white American speaking on behalf of a Lebanese woman who apparently has no religion since he been with her daughter. I wouldn’t go back home if I was her. what does he want the middle east to vote for him when he moves into politics which is apparently a lie.
So when he as allow his celebrity status and name drop her clients even if though there is a Lead QC who doesn’t get a mention (Amal is a junior counsel) Then Doughty Street’s engagement announcement in order to draw awareness to another client? Abdulla Senussi. Then the press give her an international forum. The current Libyan policy should be taken more seriously and not dealt with by a celebrity. I hope the middle east wake up and the Obama chooses his friends more wisely. He’s a President not a lap dog.

# 7

@Drats: I agree. Celebrities wind up thinking they are “SPECIAL” and I guess the media is supposed to work to inflate Clooneys head & ego. He’s great and he’s a GOD. Therefore you shall respect him and say only kind things.

Why are the Cloomuddins defending Baria hearsay on the Daily Mail and yet have not denied the Daily Mail’s May 4, 2014 article on Amal defense of a convicted Islamic terrorist known to have blown up a airline from France? Is it not heartless to blame one article for upsetting Muslims and yet no care on whether another article in the same paper on their lives have upset Americans who have lost loved ones in war with Islam?

We don’t need any more muslims in the White House.
Have you noticed what good the current one has done for us?
If George Clooney, who is born and raised a Christian, wants to soil himself and his family by marrying a muslim that’s his own business but he doesn’t have the right to drag the rest of us into the grave with him.

@Monica:
love honour + cherrish, kind things, and what’s wrong with that?

@ offtheproperty

We DO NOT have a Muslim in the White House and never have. Now some where there is a village that is missing it’s idiot. Please return home immediately. As for the rest of that vile post; Whatever it is that is eating you, it must be suffering horribly.

Clooney is one to criticize, being that he’s the biggest liar of all. He is neither dating nor engaged to Alamuddin. What an ******* liar. This man will never do the right thing and make it known that he was never engaged to Alamuddin.

Just how many names do you post under Alsomart? I look forward to your meltdown if George and Amal do get married.

@Emerald: how many names do you use, fcking deranged PR troll C.U.N.T???
RETARDED fccking PR trash straight out of the sewers refuse of CIA/NSA. MORON.
STOP ACCUSING EVERYONE POSTING HERE WHO DOESN’T AGREE WITH THE AGENDA YOU USELESS C.U.N.T.S ARE PAID TO SPIN AS BEING Alsmarmot. Patsy, is she??

GEORGE CLOONEY COMPLEX-STRICKEN, UNEDUCATED SCUM OF THE EARTH WHO LIVED IN A TRAILER PARK IN THE SOUTH IN HIS YOUTH.
A loser who did ANYTHING & EVERYTHING for fame & fortune. ALCOHOLIC LOWLIFE who has been in an open bisexual relationship with Waldo Sanchez his look-a-like Gay Cuban hairdresser since ER.

Crusty old **** with white hair all over his body & crotch. Imagine all the STDs he has caught!! Has a huge turkey wattle on his neck too.
George Clooney who makes fun of Alzheimer’s Disease & DISRESPECTED & INSULTED a legend CHARLTON HESTON for suffering from it.
He can’t even act like he’s genuine. No wonder he’s never won an acting Academy Award other than gaining weight for Syriana.

Loser George Clooney hired ugly Islamic Arab Amal Alamuddin as his latest beard. This time he threw in a prop ring because he wants the publicity script of his fake public persona to change…vector.
Hired trashy, borderline lame, defective bimbos for years so he can seem the better one. Now that he’s the butt of bad jokes, the loser hired a grotesque manly looking Shemale Arab with a university education. One he calls Conchita Wurst behind her back & her family rich refugees.
Anti-Zionist Islamic, pro-PLO camel herder Lebanese Hezbollah supporting peasants.

Newsflash! @ 07/10/2014 at 2:10 am

SCUM of the earth George Clooney is an uneducated lowlife. HE & his PR network release these stories in the media, only so they can refute them with denials and generate more publicity….FOR MORE MEDIA EXPOSURE, PROFIT, MEDIA RELEVANCE.
Clooney actually has been lying and deceiving the public for years. Daily Mail has a strict moderating comments section. They wouldn’t even print a story without his team’s directives.
This is all staged.

Newsflash! @ 07/10/2014 at 3:02 am

Ignorant imbecile.
So the camel-humped Baria Alamuddin is not Druze Islamic, she is Muslim. Still Islamic. Her drag queen daughter is half-Muslim, half druze. Either way, ISLAMIST. Like Isis & Al Qaeda.
Clooney’s just a publicity hungry, needy, attention-seeking insecure prick.
Conceited moron.

@John P:
Here we go… somebody got someone’s goat again. Lebanese do well in some countries and accepted as part of their culture.

Having read the Mail articles and Clooney’s response, I think he was right to say what he did. The Mail online is awful, I have read a few articles and the errors are always glaring. In this case Online published a story without checking any details and then the Daily Mail put it in print; the move from unsubstantiated rumour to black and white fact (couched in careful wording) is becoming routine and it is simply wrong. These big media outlets are owned with people with political agendas, some left and some right, and we know they pick and choose what they want us to hear, but when newspapers start to make up their stories it is very dangerous – we know gossip mags do it, but some people actually take newspapers seriously.

@Geri: I don’t mind him denying the story but don’t speak for the in laws and there religion this like putting a gun to there heads. How are they and there family based in Beirut going to justify GC stating they are not Druze / Muslim. They are a close knit family who have strong beliefs, no one is buying she didn’t say what she did it’s normal for a mother to show concerns.

GC has to take a stand because he doesn’t want any bad press.
So this Arab woman follow no religious beliefs and does he think this is going to work well in the middle east with his political venture.

@jay: IGNORANT MORON, what part of this does your 2-digit limited brain span NOT UNDERSTAND???? Retarded PR TROLL/ Shill.

UGLY AMAL ALAMUDDIN THE EUNUCH IS DRUZE.
HER mother BARIA ALAMUDDIN IS MUSLIM.
DRUZE IS AN OFFSHOOT OF ISLAM.
MUSLIMS ARE ISLAMIC TOO.
….
BOTH ARE ISLAMIC.

Newsflash! @ 07/10/2014 at 6:27 am

@jay -sorry last message was for the retarrrrd EMERALD. THE PR network damage control monitoring useless troll.
They plant these stories in the first place. Deliberately.
