The Word: George Clooney is Big Brothering Sudan
Cue all the headlines screaming “The Spy Who I Wish Shagged Me.” Because George “Handsomest Almost Geriatric Rascal in the Biz” Clooney is apparently extending his varied résumé to include espionage.
OK, not really. But he made some jokes about it. Clooney, who just made a boatload of money for his appearance in a series of Nespresso commercials, told the Guardian that he’s spending that loot on a satellite he has aimed at Sudan. Clooney is also well-versed in matters of international importance, you see.
Clooney joked that he’s “keeping an eye” on Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir because he wants “the war criminal to have the same amount of attention that I get. I think that’s fair.” See how he brought this thing full circle, back to No. 1? That there is some good self-PR.
