Even if you’ve never seen any of his movies, you’re familiar with George Clooney’s winning smile. After all, the man has appeared on more lists ranking Hollywood celebrities on power, sexiness and eligibility as a bachelor than we even knew existed before researching for this article. The man is basically keeping magazine journalism alive single-handedly.
Of course, what makes Gorgeous George unique in the super-stardom spectrum, is his eternal bachelorhood. He’s had more beautiful girlfriends than Jerry Seinfeld, and his were in real life rather than on a TV show. Ladies, if you’re wondering why guys talk about bachelorhood like it is heaven on earth, its because they picture themselves as Mr. Clooney.
But dating models isn’t the only way he lives out most guys’ fantasies. Mr. Clooney is also frequently the star of heist movies. Dane Cook may not be your favorite comedian, but he did get one thing right, and that is that every guy wants to be a part of a heist. George Clooney may never have actually been in a heist for real (that we know of), but with credentials including Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13, Three Kings, Welcome to Collinwood, and Fantastic Mr. Fox, he’s come about as close as anyone can hope.
As if it took more to convince the general public of his pure, distilled manliness, Mr. Clooney is also a beer enthusiast. Not only has he done voice over work for Budweiser commercials in the past, but it is also rumored that he had a keg installed in his dressing room on the set of Ocean’s 11.
Having an awesome life filled with gorgeous women, high profile parties, and making multi-million-dollar movies is great, but George Clooney isn’t just a swinging swinger. To his Bruce Wayne playboy, there’s a socially conscious Batman side (though hopefully he’s lost the rubber nipples). In September of 2006 Mr. Clooney spoke before the United Nations Security Council in hopes of getting them to act against the violence in Darfur. Then, that December, he went so far as to travel to China and Egypt in hopes of convincing officials there to use their connections with the Sudanese government in order to bring the violence in Darfur to an end.
So, for not only living the life depicted by college dorm room decorations, filled with beer, models and heist movies, but for also using your clout and handsomeness to effect social change, George Clooney, you’re the man!
