The Clooneys spent their summer at their estate in Lake Como. This week they hosted a Darfur fundraiser at a nearby villa. John Prendergast, George’s friend and philanthropic partner, and his wife Sia Sanneh were also there. As mentioned last year, Sia is also an esteemed lawyer specialising in human rights. And John was one of the most eligible bachelors in the world before meeting and falling in love with her. It’s relationship twinning.

George has been on an extended break for several months. His next project is supposed to be Suburbicon, which he will direct from a script written by the Coen Brothers, starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, and Woody Harrelson. But, as reported yesterday, Oceans 8, with Sandra Bullock apparently playing his character’s sister, will start shooting in New York in October. Cameo? There has to be a cameo, right?
