    Every few years, a real-life inspirational sports drama hits the big screen — think "American Underdog," "The Blindside" and "Chariots of Fire" — and reminds audiences of just how extraordinarily resilient humans can be when bolstered by a robust support system and personal ambition. George Clooney's "The Boys in the Boat" is the latest film in this genre celebrating the values of a past era, specifically, teamwork over individualism and humility over personal ambition. Releasing in theaters on Christmas Day and starring Joel Edgerton, Callum Turner and Hadley Robinson, "The Boys in the Boat" is based on Daniel James Brown's...

    Hollywood Democratic heavyweights have thrown their weight behind a campaign to recall the 'woke' district attorney of Los Angeles, with Joe Biden's nominee to be ambassador to Norway and George Clooney's producing partner among those demanding George Gascon step down. Gascon, a 67-year-old former assistant chief of Los Angeles Police Department, took over as district attorney in the heavily-Democrat city in December 2020 and immediately embarked on a progressive justice reform agenda - eliminating the use of sentencing enhancements for gang membership, certain uses of guns, and for prior convictions. As LA battles rising crime, critics are blaming Gascon's 'soft'...

  • Prominent Putin propagandist rages on live TV about losing his Italian villa - which is next to George Clooney's - because of sanctions over Russia's invasion of Ukraine

    As the death toll mounts in Ukraine - where at least three children have died since Vladimir Putin ordered the country invaded - a tone-deaf Russian TV host is fuming about how the conflict has cost him access to his Italian luxury villas. Proponent pro-Putin television personality Vladimir Soloviev publicly lamented Friday losing access to his multimillion-dollar vacation homes due to Italian-imposed sanctions spurred by Russia's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. 'Is this the Iron Curtain?' Soloviev opined on the set of his late-night program. 'I was told that Europe is a citadel of rights, that everything is permitted, that’s what...

    George Clooney said he doesn’t know Alec Baldwin well, doesn’t believe he or anyone else on the set of “Rust” intended “to do anything wrong” and calls the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins “a terrible accident.”However, Clooney raised new questions about Baldwin’s actions on the set of the low-budget Western, both as the actor handling the gun that killed Hutchins on Oct. 21 and as one of the film’s producers.In an interview on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast, the Oscar winner called Hutchins’ death “infuriating,” given strict gun safety protocols put in place on film and TV sets following the...
  • George Clooney Blasts ‘Dumba**ses’ Who Don’t Wear Masks In Profanity-Laced Tirade On Howard Stern

    George Clooney wants you to know that if you don’t agree with his stance on mask etiquette, you are a “dumba**.” The Batman star told radio shock jock Howard Stern all about how the government forcing anyone to cover up their face is NOT a violation of their freedom. Clooney has a long history of “Hollywood-splaining” to the average American. The Hollywood elite likes to fancy himself as an average guy from Kentucky, but the basic fact is that he is all left coast liberal.

    To juice enthusiasm and donations for its 77-year-old candidate, the Joe Biden presidential campaign thought it would be a good idea to bring together two people who aren’t Joe Biden. Former president Barack Obama teamed up with actor George Clooney on Tuesday for an online conversation that doubled as a fundraiser for the Biden campaign. The price of admission to this chummy two-hander started at $250 and topped out at $250,000. Obama and Clooney reportedly talked about Biden’s empathy and decency, while highlighting his decades of experience as a senator, according to Deadline. They also bashed the Trump administration for...

    Mega-rich Hollywood liberal George Clooney is putting up some real dollars to bolster the fight for racial justice and for the sake of boosting his ego by making President Trump look bad. The Burn After Reading and Oceans 11 star heard one more line from Trump’s Twitter and realized he couldn’t take the quipping anymore. Over the weekend, Clooney ponied up a massive donation to social justice initiatives in response to a Trump tweet about an anti-slavery holiday that unfortunately, many people aren’t familiar with. It all started when Trump announced the date for his first re-election campaign rally in...

    Actor George Clooney taped a spoof public-service advertisement for a group that he referred to as “UDUMASS”—"United to Defeat Untruthful Misinformation and Support Science”—that was featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on May 7, 2019 and has since been posted on YouTube by that program. In his introduction to the Clooney video, Kimmel criticized the Trump administration, as Clooney himself does in the video.

    Today the country celebrates Pride with its symbol, the rainbow. The rainbow generally follows the dark clouds: when colour and light once more break through; much like the history of Pride itself. This weekend also marks the 50th anniversary of a police raid on the Stonewall Inn. Its brutality sparked riots that energised the fight for gay equality in the US. The stand taken and the refusal to be beaten down is said to have been the catalyst for the modern gay-rights movement. If today people of the same sex can walk hand in hand without comment, it might too...

Yes, the Lake Como near where George Clooney has a home. The Obamas and the Clooneys were spotted hanging around the Northern Italian resort town on Sunday, June 23

    One of the UK’s most respected international criminal lawyers who was representing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has died after being hit by a train in West Hampstead. Married father of two John Jones, QC, worked at renowned legal chambers, Doughty Street and died last Monday morning. Police say they are not treating the death as suspicious. The 48-year-old barrister has been described as “a giant in his field” by colleagues, who said that his death is “a monumental loss to the cause of international justice and human rights.” Oxford graduate Mr Jones, who took silk in 2013, specialised in extradition,...

    Top barrister: Amal Alamuddin is defending a suspected Libyan war criminal accused of masterminding the Lockerbie bombing Having won the heart of the world’s most eligible bachelor, Amal Alamuddin is getting used to being the centre of attention. But George Clooney’s fiancée has also hit the spotlight for a very different reason – defending a suspected Libyan war criminal accused of masterminding the Lockerbie bombing. It has been just a week since her engagement to the Hollywood heart-throb was revealed but it is already clear that the high-flying barrister is not about to let her career take a back seat....

    The date April 3rd has held a unique place in our history over the years. Theologians and astronomers will tell you that Christ was crucified on that date. On April 3rd Harry Truman signed the Marshall Plan, arguably the greatest postwar intervention in the history of man. The first portable cellphone call was made on April 3rd. Marlon Brando was born on that day. But this April 3rd will hold its own place in history. On this particular April 3rd the nation of Brunei will begin stoning and whipping to death any of its citizens that are proved to be...

    Milan (AFP) - An Italian appeals court on Friday cleared Silvio Berlusconi of having sex with an underage prostitute and abuse of power in a surprise ruling that will strengthen the former prime minister on the political scene. "The defendant is acquitted," presiding judge Enrico Tranfa said, requesting silence after gasps from the courtroom. The effectively scraps Berlusconi's seven-year sentence and lifelong ban from holding public office. The judge said there was "no crime" on the abuse of power charge and that Berlusconi's actions "did not constitute a crime" on the prostitution one, promising to publish a detailed explanation within...

    International human rights attorney Amal Clooney accused President Trump of putting the lives of journalists in danger with his rhetoric in a speech at the United Nations Correspondents Association Awards this week. She said that journalists were “under attack,” in “autocratic regimes from North Korea to the Philippines to Hungary.” “The U.S. president has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the ‘enemy of the people,’” she argued. President Trump has used and tweeted the “enemy of the people” label about media he considers to be “fake news.” “And of course, two months ago,...

I get that he has a hardcore following, but his own attitudes toward women, from his weird early writings to his physical dismissal of women in his presence (including his own wife) make that an incredibly dubious prospect.— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) November 29, 2017 Her comments did not go unnoticed.  I didn't answer your biased reporting about Bernie during the last 2...

    Meanwhile, duped conservative politicians both past and present: Be aware that George Clooney’s texting buddy is Clooney described as the “filthiest stuff” and “foul” Sacha Baron Cohen—who reportedly interviewed Sarah Palin posing as a disabled veteran in a wheelchair—isn’t the first to use revered US military as props. Former President Barack Obama and his overbearing wife, Michelle came first. Even as he was gutting the U.S. military, in 2013, a preening Obama created something of a stir when he summoned over two marines to hold umbrellas over himself and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for protection from light rain...

    They are calling it the ‘Amal Effect’ because, following George Clooney’s marriage to human rights barrister Amal Alamuddin, it seems that what a bachelor film star of a certain age needs most is a consort with a supernova combination of beauty, brains, and serious professional achievement. The latest star to embrace the phenomenon is Brad Pitt — probably the most eligible bachelor in Hollywood since his split from Angelina Jolie and, incidentally, a long-time pal of Clooney’s.In Professor Neri Oxman he has found a dazzling supernova of his own, and reportedly thinks she is ‘the sexiest thing he ever laid...
