Who Is George Clooney?

It’s probably no surprise, but George Clooney is one of the biggest Hollywood stars today. He’s talented; having two Emmies and two Oscars for his film work. He’s sexy; named the sexiest man alive in 2006. He’s also very influential; being a member of the Council of Foreign Relations.

Like any Hollywood star, George Clooney had to start somewhere. He began his acting journey by doing minor roles for several mini-series and movies. In 1988, he was the lead actor in the horror-comedy film Return Of The Killer Tomatoes – a movie so bad, it scored a zero in Rotten Tomatoes. Ouch!

He had his big break when he took on the role of Doctor Ross in the medical-drama ER, which won him two Emmies! Since then all eyes were on George as casters recognised his flair for acting – he looked good, he carried himself well, and he was incredibly charming. Soon enough he was cast in blockbusters like Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve, and Gravity.

Aside from acting, George Clooney has also made a name for himself by doing humanitarian work. He is an avid supporter of LGBT+ rights and is very vocal about his opinions on gun control. 

Millionaire, philanthropist, A-list celebrity, what can’t George do?

She is a philanthropist; she co-founded the Clooney Foundation for Justice. She also knows how to dress; she was shortlisted for Best British Style in the 2014 British Fashion Awards.

Where Does George Clooney Live?

With a combined net worth of $USD510 million, it’s easy for the Clooney couple to live anywhere comfortably. In fact, George has several properties across the globe, including a 682m2 house in Los Angeles, a lake house in Italy, and a vacation home in Mexico. But the couple spends most of their time in England, where they bought a Grade II listed home in Oxfordshire which only cost them around £10 million – no biggie!

Keeping Up With The Clooneys

George and Amal technically got married when they obtained marriage licenses in August 2014. But the two didn’t officially tie the knot until a month later. They got married in Venice, Italy, officiated by Rome’s former Mayor, Walter Veltroni.

Right after marriage, the Clooney couple took steps to grow their family. In 2015, they adopted a rescue dog named Millie, from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society. And in 2017, the couple came across some surprising news when Amal found out she was pregnant… with twins! She gave birth later that year to babies Ella and Alexander Clooney.

Some Prized Photos Of The Twins

Amal is putting her life on the line by challenging organisations like ISIS. So it’s only natural for their family to prioritise the safety of the twins. They always keep a low profile, making sure that Alexander and Ella are away from the news, and the public eye.

Conclusion

Lately, there have been a lot of rumours surrounding Hollywood’s OTP. George running for the presidency, Amal expecting baby number three, or the couple’s divorce! Most of these rumours, though have been debunked, and the Clooney family continues to live their best life, fighting the good fight and helping those in need.

Though it might be great to get a lot more information about the Clooney family, we also have to respect their decision to keep private. The pressures of being in the spotlight don’t always have the best effect on developing children. So it would be wise to leave the family alone, and just quietly watch the cute twins from a distance.
