George Clooney

Can't believe George Clooney is supposed to be running around ST Louis, deciding if director/producers would like to do his movie titled,'Up in the Air'. I do like him as an actor but hoping to just 'run' into him is not possible. Just like the fact that he is in my 'neighborhood'! I haven't a clue what I would do if I act ually saw him in person. Better just to continue as things are. Most people I hear have said when t hey actually met the person they considered 'great' he wasn't. Only disappointment. I just wonder how come he doesn't have regular girlfriend? Probably likes them all.

Personally, I would be more excited about Gordon Ramsay.

I wouldn't mind meeting him, myself. Anyone who can give the performance he did in O Brother, Where Art Thou has got to have a lot going on, and that's mentioning just one movie.

spy movie

Saw a good spy movie that he was main character, but like everything seems to be, can't remember it. Was a true story of this particular character and I just was surprised at how well he played the part. He was in Oceans 11. Just seems so durn confident and understanding when I have seen him interviewed. I really don't think it is conceit but more sure of himself than anything. So much for my analyzing someone I never met.

Glad you all approve of him too. I know this will DATE me but Rosemary Clooney was a singer long ago who was his aunt. She was popular singer too. As I said, some time ago.

Title of the movie, Michael Clayton! Never heard of him till George acted in the movie. Sad when people become important only after I see a movie.

Oh, do I feel bad. I do REMEMBER ER, he was true heartthrob on that series. But Rosanne, was he regular on that one too? How great that you know who I am talking about. He must have caught your attention to remember him. I really don't hear a lot about his girlfriends, do you? I prefer that he isn't real woman chaser that tabloids write about. I am sure women chase him.

He was the boss at the plastic factory rosanne worked at. He was WAY younger and a lot thinner (boyishly thin as in he hadn't filled out yet).
