If your roommate has a cat, the litterbox probably bugs the hell out of you. Apparently, it was the same for George Clooney, when one of his roommates left the open litterbox in the bathroom for his cat to have a go at it, whenever it wants. So George pulled this prank on the dude which involved some scooping and crapping…I can’t go into the details but I will use a word: Eeeeeewwwwwwwwwww! Ok that’s not a word.
You’ve got to hear it from George’s mouth! Watch here:

In case you’ve stumbled on to this post from an outside source, Here’s the context: a blogger at 66witches says why she thinks George Clooney’s humanitarian efforts are moot because he associates himself with Nestle–a crap corrupt corporation to the core (responsible for 1.5 mil infant deaths in Africa) while endorsing Nespresso–an environmentally degrading machine nobody in their right minds ever freaking wanted. I explained the whole thing about what the fuck is wrong with George Clooney endorsing Nespresso in the previous article.
Though an year too late, here’s my response for the article in 66witches:
As great (Oscar Winning) an actor George is, I can tell when he’s acting and when he’s not. In this video, for example, he is so not. You can see in every utterance, the earnestness to get the people in UN to hear. George is a smooth actor. When he’s acting he doesn’t stutter. SO PLEASE, HE IS NOT PRETENDING TO CARE
<Done fuming. Let’s go back to where we were.>
On the other hand, advocacy is the right of every concerned individual. And by individual I mean the simplest definitions of it which does not include multi-million-dollar-corporate-representations or a thirty-million-fanbase. I’ll come back here, but first consider this.
Maybe you’d like him more if he’s not his usual absolutely-terrific self. Throwing a beard on and some sad eyes good enough?
Ok, fine, here’s One Hundred percent grungy! Let me know your thoughts.
So guys, you know I’m the biggest fan of George Clooney in the world-wide-web (according to my own expert opinion) and I have to say I have been quite disturbed about the flak he keeps receiving because of endorsing Nespresso.
About the ads, I think they are pretty lame except for the first one “You’re talking about Nespresso, right?” Except for his rich and sensual voice, there is nothing noteworthy about them. But I guess you have to use the old celebrity-being-rebutted while giving autographs, etc. concept to get the masses interested in a new product.
Here’s the Nespresso advertisement I like
About the issue: Now that I’ve convinced you I am going to be all serious and critical and objective in this post by actually criticizing something that’s got George in it, let me get down to the details.
Give it up to George Clooney’s PR guys that this thing hadn’t been blown out of proportions. To be fair, George Clooney totally deserves all the shit he is currently getting and had gotten in the past by being Nespresso’s brand ambassador. Being a fan and an ultra-positive person in general, I have tried many times to articulate his defense for him.
For he hadn’t done much about it, except saying: “I’m not going to apologize to you for trying to make a living every once in a while”
Well, honeybum…you’ve gotta do better than that! You’ve surely pissed some people off here!
For those of you who are in loss as to what the heck is wrong with endorsing Nespresso, find below here some bulleted points that outline the problem. I am taking them from the blog of 66witches instead of some news outlet because, this was the first article that I could articulate a response for and I like talking to and talking about people who care rather than automated feed burners!
Pax Vobiscum, the author of this article clearly noted why she thinks George Clooney becomes the Hollywood Whore for endorsing Nespresso. Here I am bulleting them down in my own words (but not necessarily agreeing with everything).
- Nespresso, the espresso machine which uses aluminium pods to make coffee is ‘Not Needed’. It eliminates any chance of enjoying coffee making because ‘where the hell are the beans’ right? And secondly, there is no need to replace a thousand year old system with an autobot when we are perfectly happy making coffee as we’ve been doing. “I guess the benefits, if you can call them that, of the Nespresso device, are that you can make a reasonably OK cup of Joe, without: cleaning, needing to know anything about coffee; being able to hold a spoon or read.”
- Environmental hazard: Nespresso’s coffee pods are packaged with Aluminium that does not magically disappear once the pod goes into the machine. Instead it accumulates with hundreds of others in the waste compartment and is never recycled–because there is no frigging recycling system in place! First you bring in a machine nobody ever wanted and second you start giving polythene a tough competition with aluminium in crapping up the environment. And George Clooney, a supposed environmentalist (just because he bought a super environment-friendly car the Tesla Roadster and some other fancy/costly gadgets), is knowingly bringing such a magnanimous amount of toxic waste onto the planet by promoting a pointless machine #justforthemoney.
- Nestle, the badass: Associating himself with a company like Nestle that had caused great harm to the people and environment in Africa, itself proves how insincere he is in his advocacy of Darfur situation among others. Because
a. “Nestle is is still the subject of an International boycott over its baby milk products that have caused an estimated 1.5 million infant deaths in starving Africa.”
b. “Only a single Nestlé product out of 8,500 brands has been awarded the “Fair Trade” certification.”
c. “Nestle is featured on Corporate Watch as being guilty of massive corporate crimes from heinous labour violations to I-don’t-give-a-shit environmental practices and are even implicated in the deaths-by-assassination of several Union organizers.”
Read my response to Pax in the next article and why I think George Clooney’s humanitarian efforts are every bit pure and his stand justified, despite direct affiliation with the shitbags of Nestle. Posting it here coz I’m not sure it’s gonna pass Pax’s moderation (I am totally scared of her response btw. My good humored comments often got bitch-slap responses from a lot many bloggers 😦 ).
And here is her full article if you want to read, but I have to warn you Clooney Fans, it is pretty raw and blows hate waves on dear sweet George every step of the way (No offense Pax, but it is hard to digest when I’m not so deep into the cause as you are).
PS: Oh by the way, my favorite line:
Why in the name of everything right and good and strong and beautiful; why in the screaming, twisted, contorted, bloody FUCK does he need to make a little extra dough on the side by pimping himself out to the likes of Nespresso?
Man, ain’t that strong? 😛
For a while there people in Italy thought George Clooney is gay. Of course, you’ve heard all about a fan stripping in a news conference in Italy and asking George to choose him. Here’s the video.
And later Matt Damon confessed on Letterman’s s show that he slipped it to an Italian journo that George Clooney is gay indeed and wants to marry his boyfriend too! Well I think he takes too much credit for himself. Either that or the Italian paps are really as dumb as they say.
I wish though that George Clooney is really gay. That’d really help my own “Choose me George!” monologue from surfacing, ever! And sweet though they are, I wouldn’t have to hear these words from him.
“Its hard when you take one big chance and it doesn’t really work. It’s always embarrassing when you take one real swing for the fences and it just falls flat!”
Gay or not, George does have an incredible response throughput. His actual personality is really so charming that I am always loathe to see him in dark roles like in Michael Clayton or Syriana. Actually, I didn’t watch Syriana #canyoubelieveit. The whole setting and George Clooney’s look is a total turn off! Whoever pitched it to him that putting on weight and growing a beard is a good idea? We are very happy as we are thinking undercover agents are tall-dark-handsome and sexy as hell, aren’t we? Ok, if if you aren’t, in his case, George looks more real than any 48 49 year old movie star. It’s definitely not worth all that trouble to ‘fit into the role’ and cry over it later when the whole process caused George Clooney an injury.
Anyways, coming back to the issue at hand–“George Clooney is gay”, just the sound of it is so phoney! He is as straight as a man can be and I’m so not buying it that the reporter, whatever his IQ levels are, fell for it. I think Matt Damon is just taking cues off George in making a good story.
So not gay George Clooney is. See:
So as I was saying, adding to the list of George Clooney‘s injuries was a broken hand. In the past, his motorbike accident that broke George Clooney’s ex-girlfriend Sarah Larson’s leg, was somehow the big story! And then there was that odd injury while putting on weight for his role in Syrianna…that’s all I can remember for now, oddly enough.
So about George Clooney’s injury this summer, he explained it in that pretty much uncomplicated plus witty way he always does.
“I slammed my hand in a minivan… I was getting out and someone slammed the door on it. I knew immediately it was broken because a bone was sticking up out of it. So the Italian guy who does the driving for me says, ‘Get in the car, I’ll take care of you.’ He drives me into town… and he takes me to the dentist. Dentist’s chair, dentist’s lamp, everything. The guy comes in, pulls the dentist’s lamp down onto my hand. He starts pulling on my fingers, which really hurts. At last he says, ’Hmmm… I think it’s broken…’ I’m saying, ’Is there a real doctor anywhere in here?’ In the end, they got me into a hospital in Lugano, the hand was x-rayed and I was in and out in 20 minutes. It’s doing fine now.”
But that’s not the story. Not to me anyways. I was reading this excerpt from Hello Magazine in..err… Celebitchy and mirroring my thoughts right there was: “EW. God, I hate when people tell stories about their broken bones. The worst words in the English language are “the bone was sticking out”. Does that make anyone else nauseous?”
Nauseous? Honey, it makes me feel like someone pulled out my intestines and balloon twisted them into a gravy boat. I’m sorry, did that make you uncomfortable?
PS: Oh by the way, just in case you’re thinking I follow Celebitchy or some other snarky site like Lainey Gossip, etc. don’t! I just run into them sometimes…well a lot of times. Blame Google. Blame External Links! And twitter and facebook and social networking of all forms! Oh no, I don’t follow Celebitchy. Not at all. And I definitely, most surely and affirmatively, never ever lay my eyes on this article. Ever.
So I’ve resolved to talk about all of George Clooney’s girlfriends to get over my obsession for him. Smart move, shrinky says, and I agree. Obviously talking about his galaxy sized love interests would make me realize he’s actually so wrong for me, because of all the bad choices he keeps making (…because he hadn’t found the right one: Me). Anyways, first on my list is Elisabetta Canalis. She is his current anyways. I have to tell you here I’ve been warned by many an article to “read fast because by the time you’re done George Clooney would’ve dumped Elisabetta Canalis.” To be truthful, I read those articles as slowly as I could…but he didn’t dump her still!
George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis met in Italy. She is a TV personality and a model. Ok, ok, you’ve heard all this a thousand times already. So I’ll just quit talking about her in particular. But gladly! At the Oscars, everybody thought George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis were acting a bit smug. I think its just the girl. They attended every freaking premiere of Up In The Air together (or is it just one reported multiple times? Really, someone’s gotta do something about the redundancy on the net) And they hosted parties at George Clooney’s Lake Como house.
Recently George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis were guests at John Krasinski and Emily Blunt’s wedding.
About her he says, ““I’m doing fine… If like’s a journey, then right now I’ve got a very nice co-pilot. I’m not going to project into the future and say I’ve found a co-pilot for life, because I don’t want to jinx things… but I will say that at the moment, I’m having a very nice time being a frequent flyer on Alitalia.”
Whoever came up with “co-pilot” in Up In The Air anyways? I’m sure commitment-phobic men world over are jumping on it right now. And with George, well, does his co-pilot get to choose the destination, ever? His villa in Italy, his award functions, his events, his parties she gets to co-host…seriously, does the girl have a life? You could say that because she was there with him at all those places, she’s ‘seen’ at least. But she would have been just as famous, if Elisabetta Canalis were to be with George Clooney anywhere else in the world! She’s definitely not taking him any places and most assuredly not to bliss land!
More on Miss Canalis’s PDL later. Oh you didn’t know? PDL is Public Display of Lust
Now I know George Clooney keeps on saying that he doesn’t need a stylist. He likes to think style comes effortlessly to him. Well, hello! Remember me? Your personal style guru? I’d like to add a word or two here about how men take their wives for-granted all the time…but I’ll save it for later, George Clooney’s style being the topic of conversation here.
George Clooney is known for keeping it cool and casual, esp. the dress sense. Personally, I don’t think there’s much ‘dressing’ for guys if you’re really toning it down as much as Clooney does. But at least he’s not looking as ditzy as his goood friend Brad “what’s wrong with you” Pitt here.
Well, thank god, the friendship has no influence on George Clooney’s style. You’ll mostly see George in a plain t-shirt and jeans. I think this picture suffices his entire wardrobe.
But I don’t think round necks are really flattering on him. Sorry darling, sometimes the truth’s gotta come out. Because he has square shoulders that are quite…err…square. I did tell him once or twice, he looks much better in shirts and polos.
Well, thank you for taking the advice and BTW, did I say anything about holding hands?!
And in court…. (for those of you who aren’t updated, George Clooney testified in an Italian court against three people who used his name for a designer brand, forged his signatures, cloned his photographs and the works! More on that later.)
Sometimes George Clooney’s style does involve a breezy surprise. I think the pattern looks really sweet on him, don’t you?
For the most part, I do admire George Clooney’s style and I think he’s quite justified in saying “I don’t care a lot about my looks; I don’t even have a personal stylist. It is unmanly and unsexy if you always worry about it.”
I’d love to do a ton of features on George Clooney’s style in each of his movies, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to fall flat on my face in two seconds, for lack of material. As a girl, I really want to talk about clothes and shoes!!! This is so not fair. Maybe I should find me a nice lesbian popstar girlfriend. Screw heterosexuality.
