Jump To George Clooney's Stats
To all the guys that use to make fun of him during his elementary days, George Clooney has forgiven you and would like to offer you a position on his servant staff in Lake Como, Italy. That's the kind of guy Clooney has become. Kind, generous, strikingly handsome and very, very rich. His net worth nowadays equals $278,150,000.
Clooney suffered a bout of Bell's palsy during his elementary years. It lasted about a year, but he managed to brush off the badgering and name calling kids are known for without it affecting his self-esteem. Good thing too because the self-proclaimed bachelor needs all the ego he can muster as now he faces a continuous stream of women admirers and suitors that he may be busy interviewing for the rest of his life.
The well-established movie actor got his start on television, appearing on the popular long-running dramatic series E.R. His silver screen got launched when he, along with Brad Pitt, began the Oceans franchise the had Hollywood in a titter. The dashing leading man character he plays as he swoons over Julie Roberts made his star shine in Hollywood.
Along the way, he has earned the praise and applause of his colleges in film. Clooney has earned a Golden Globe and an Oscar for other roles he has played. His characters never seem to have one pigeon hole. At times, he plays comedic roles and at others he plays dramatic parts.
A huge part of Clooney's life revolves around political activism. He recently was arrested in Washington D.C. as part of a protest against the Sudanese government and their treatment of the refugee in Dufar. Some of his political humor has got him in hot water.
In early 2002, Clooney made light of Charlton Heston's stance as the president of the NRA. His joke about Alzheimer's was poorly received when it was disclosed that in fact Heston had just been diagnosed with the ailment. During his acceptance of his Golden Globe, he made a glib remark about a political middleman whose first name was Jack. Again, the fallout dinged his veneer.
