10 Things You Never Knew About George Clooney
BettyConfidential uncovers some little-known facts about Hollywood’s reigning Mr. Cool.
Geroge Clooney’s newsest film, The American, hits theaters next week– and we still want to hit him!
1. He wasn’t always good-looking.
In middle school, the other kids called George “Frankenstein” after he contracted Bell’s palsy, a condition that partially paralyses the face. He recovered within a year, but “it was the worst time of my life,” he said back in 2003. “You know how cruel kids can be.”
2. He didn’t want to be in showbiz.
George never wanted to follow in the footsteps of his dad, Nick, who was a local TV talk show host in Cincinnati, or his aunt Rosemary, who was a movie and singing star in the 1950s. Setting his sights on a career as a pro baseball player, George tried out for Cincinnati in 1977, but was rejected.
