Oh my sweet Clooney. Some people look forward to Christmas. Some people look forward to their birthday. I look forward to George Clooney’s media week. He’s promoting Monuments Men, which I will probably see, but right now the matter at hand is Clooney. Letterman one day, The Daily Show the next (YouTube has banned the Daily Show video. Nobody bans Clooney!). So effortless. So suave. Cracking jokes, making everyone in the room feel like they’ve been best friends for years. If I ever met a magic genie, I’d wish for George Clooney to come out with 52 movies a year, so we’d never have to be apart.
Reason Number One Million Why George Clooney is the Best: He Lets Bill Murray Crash at His Place Whenever He’s in Los Angeles
Source – There was a lot to talk to George Clooney about at Friday’s press day for his new film, “The Monuments Men”: His reaction to that cold diss from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes; that on-set prank he pulled on Matt Damon where Clooney had wardrobe continually and very narrowly tighten Damon’s waistline; and of course the film itself, a highly anticipated adventure about the hunt for art stolen by the Nazis during World War II.
During Yahoo Movies’ chat with Clooney, though, in addition to discussing possible comeuppance by Damon, he inadvertently let one little fun factoid slip: That Bill Murray crashes at Clooney’s house when in Los Angeles.
Jesus Christ how cool can one guy be? Also, I’ve never been more jealous of Bill Murray in my life. I always knew the guy was a superstar, but now that he gets to stay at Clooney’s house!? I’ve never wanted to be a 63 year old man so badly. Game. Set. Clooney.
Source – As one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, George Clooney has no shortage of options when it comes to securing a date. However, it could be you by his side at the upcoming “Monuments Men” premiere.
That’s because the 52-year-old is auctioning off a date with himself for the Feb. 4 red carpet event in Manhattan. And through a $10 donation on charity site Omaze, you will be entered to win. That’s right — it’s only $10 to throw your hat in the ring. (And the more entries you buy, the cheaper it gets.)
Being the Oscar winner’s date at a premiere is exciting enough, but the winner gets even more Clooney time. Along with a friend, the lucky lady or gent flies to the Big Apple and accompanies him to “Late Show With David Letterman,” where they’ll hang backstage as part of his entourage while he’s interviewed by Dave. Then, they’ll ride to the premiere together in style, walk the red carpet, and sit with him in the VIP row during the screening of the film, which Clooney directed, wrote, and stars in.
Oh, and the date extends to attending the afterparty as Clooney’s special guests. Other talent in the film include Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, and John Goodman, so it will be a star-studded affair.
According to the Omaze website, at the end of the night, the winners will have learned, “How it feels to be the classiest person on the red carpet (by association); what it’s like to go out in NYC with the ultimate man’s man, ladies’ man, and all around man; AND George may even share how he masterfully pranks super star buddies like Brad Pitt.”
Clooney, who’s single since splitting with Stacy Keibler over the summer, is doing this to benefit Satellite Sentinel Project, which is an organization that reports on the state of the conflict in the border regions between Sudan and South Sudan via satellite imagery. (The war-torn country has long been a close to the megastar’s heart.)
The contest ends on Jan. 30. And, who knows? The winner may have so much fun with Clooney that they could become part of his inner circle. Next spring, they could be with him in Lake Como skinny-dipping along with the rest of his A-list pals.
How’s that for $10 well spent?
I’ve been preparing for this moment my entire life. It’s just funny because this whole time I was running after Clooney, and now he’s right where I want him*. All it’s going to take is donating $10 to a good cause and I’ll be schmoozing with big wigs on the red carpet. This Yahoo! article obviously knows its stuff because after the red carpet event it’s inevitable that Clooney and I become best friends. What do best friends do? They skinny dip in Lake Como. Looks like Uncle Ryan has finally hit the big time. And it’s all because of Clooney.
*If for some insane reason he’s ever read any of my blogs on him I’ll probably be disqualified from the contest and thrown in jail. Risk I’m willing to take.
