The G8 summit is happening now in L’Aquila, Italy and after spending his vacation at Lake Como with Bill Murray paddling with the ladies and boozy dinners with more ladies George Clooney dropped by and toured the area hit by the earthquake. He’s also supposed to be in town for a theatre opening.
Apparently some of the local folk were more moved by his presence than by most of the world leaders.
Have you noticed that celebrities always get a pass on hypocrisy but politicians never do? What’s the difference? I would never need to convince you that a politician was lying, but people always seem incapable of believing that movie stars can be assholes. But they’re actors.
This should be a panel discussion.
