Our Brand Is Crisis opens next week. The Hollywood premiere is on Monday. As you know, George Clooney is one of the producers. Check him out with Amal yesterday after lunch in Beverly Hills with David Milliband, a British politician. Do I have to care about this? Clooney told reporters last week when asked whether or not he plans to run for office that:

"I've been asked that for almost 20 years now and the answer is just no. Who would ever want to live like that? I'm friends with a lot of those guys and I just think it's hell."

Anyway, the Clooneys’ presence in LA right now is a good sign that they’ll show up together at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and walk the red carpet. With Sandra Bullock? Amal posing with Sandra Bullock? There’s a photo I’d like to see.

Anyway, Toronto Life just published a lengthy profile of Henein this month. It’s worth your time. Click here to read it.
