(Daily Mail)   George Clooney makes 87-year-old fan happy by visiting her at her care home. Right afterward, Trump shows up and takes away her health care and then boots her out on the street. Another promise kept   ( dailymail.co.uk) divider line

He gets a lot of cleaver.

I'd like to see Trump try to boot someone off the NHS. :D

Seems like a good guy.  THAT's the way to introduce yourself to the new neighbors.  He gets it.

That's got to be the best part of celebrity: Getting to make someone's day/week/year just by saying hi.

I've never heard of any kind of "Diva" moment from Clooney.  He's not hot on the paparazzi, but when they do stupid and dangerous shiat to get a picture of him, I'm surprised he's as civil to them as he is.

And his wife is a BAD ASS.

Goddamn it, Clooney. Stop being such a decent human being. You're a celebrity so start acting like one. Jeez, you and Hanks should just get a room already.

It's a fairly simple thing to do. Basically, be boring enough that they can make more money elsewhere, and they will leave you alone.

Wow, Trump sure is a powerful president. He can dictate healthcare overseas.

I think subby may have found a way to circumvent the trump (no, don't capitalize that autocorrect) thread shiatting...

Also, I try to be a cold bastard but agree with Boudyro. Celebrity would be worth it for stuff like this.

/Clooney = 24th century slang for classy
//you all know the hipster over-running will make it a thing by then...

He's not the worlds best actor..Every part he, "plays" is George Clooney.. But he seems to be a
real decent guy. His friends adore him, and he goes out of his way for them. Even flying
to other cities just to be on the set to watch his friends work. Treating his fans well is just another
notch in his good guy belt..I would guess he learned a lot about fame and how to handle it, from his aunt.

Do what Dan Radcliffe did: wear the same shirt and coat for months and months so the paparazzi cannot make any $ off of your walking around on the street.

Clooney learned early, the hard way, to work hard, be grateful and never take anything for granted. His aunt probably imparted some measure of wisdom that has kept him grounded, but having no money and couch surfing for quite some time before he had steady income, has probably taught him more about humility and being thankful than anything else. He's always been spoken of fondly and with respect because he respects others no matter their position at the time.

Submitter just made me cringe hard with the painfully unfunny (and stupid, since it's in England) trump reference.

Clooney can do very little wrong as a person in my eyes.

Back when he was on ER, I was caring for a young tween girl who was slowly dying while waiting for a heart transplant at UCLA.  I pretty much ended up being her primary provider as she became more and more difficult to work with as the days ticked by.  Imagine the worst jet lag of your life lasting forever, constantly dehydrated and constipated, you're a tween girl, isolated in an ICU, and knowing that you are going to die...

Anywho, turns out she had a huge crush on Clooney.  So to keep her going a bit longer I started working A to B to C to get in touch with him for an autograph or a visit or something.  He was unable to visit, due to scheduling, but he hand-wrote her a little letter and took one of his scrub tops from the show and not only signed it, but passed it around to the entire cast and had them sign it as well.

That girl lit up like I had never seen.  Just a few days later she got her heart.  To this day, having been by her side for weeks, as seeing the change in her mental and physical processes, I give partial credit to Clooney for helping her ride out circling the drain and make it out alive.

You can say this about a lot of "not great" actors: Cary Grant, Kevin Costner, Steve McQueen. But yeah, they have "it," i.e. true on-screen charisma. And yeah, we just keep watching because we enjoy their work.
