Solid Reasons Why "I" am a Clooney Man

Short or long?

Short and sweet. That's the ticket for me with today's hub. I rely on the information I gained when studying other hubbers' works both long, involved, and to-the-point. I can really appreciate how a reader can get a lot from a short hub because a short hub is mostly vital information and compared to most of my hubs, which are covered in sweet vanilla icing, are read often by people with fast-paced lives.

No hard feelings here. I just want to write enough and as long as my health holds out so I can live out the rest of my life with an inner-warmth of personal satisfaction that maybe I have, with My Maker's guidance, brought a few minutes of happiness to some of the best people on HubPages: My cherished followers.

George Timothy Clooney (born May 6, 1961) is an American actor, screenwriter, producer, director, and activist. He has received three Golden Globe Awards for his work as an actor and two Academy Awards, one for acting and the other for producing.

Clooney's Work so far . . .

  • Clooney made his acting debut on television in 1978
  • He gained wide recognition in his role as Dr. Doug Ross on the long-running medical drama ER from 1994 to 1999 Clooney stepped away from ER to star in the superhero film Batman & Robin (1997) and the crime comedy Out of Sight (1998), in which he first worked with director Steven Soderbergh, who would have the lead role in Three Kings, a well-received war satire set during the Gulf War.
  • In 2001, Clooney's fame widened with the release of the heist comedy Ocean's Eleven
  • Clooney has since directed the drama Good Night, and Good Luck (2005), the sports comedy Leatherheads (2008), the political drama The Ides of March (2011), and the comedy-drama war film The Monuments Men (2014).


Clooney: A star. No argument.

Even people who are uninterested in the Silver Cinema, films, Hollywood Oscar parties and such will have to admit that George Clooney is, by every measurement of a celebrity, a very talented actor. Can you point out to me just one movie that he did not shine as bright as a new dime store candle sitting on the back porch while someone's older sister, "Margey," learned the taboo surrounding kissing on men's lips and how good they tasted. The lips, not the man, mind you.

Clooney may be "the" undisputed male celebrity in 2015 that automatically reminds us of "Old Hollywood" and her glamour days and nights, wild parties and the star who broke the most champagne glasses was conveniently kept out of Hollywood's "Bible": Variety. Yes, this is a true fact and Clooney knows it full well. Even his specially-designed wardrobe solidifies that "Old Hollywood" image. Why he wants to look this way is beyond me. I suppose that it's Clooney's way to keep "that" era of Hollywood alive breathing right on cue.

To condense and yet elaborate on why I appreciate George Clooney are found in these points.

  • His ear-to-ear smile -- is always a give-away "tell" that he is nearing another lucrative opportunity to promote such as a huge Broadway play or Dreamworks film one of his close buddies has written. Beware! Just because Clooney smiles more than your regular Hollywood icon doesn't mean that he is friendly to animals and derelicts.
  • Clooney's quick decisions to "bite a person's head off" -- for just being five minutes late on the set of a film he is directing. We do not see the actual head being bitten off. We only read about it and then in the captioned photo, Clooney and the poor studio employee are shaking hands and sipping Starbucks. But I guarantee you that this employee has learned a valuable lesson: Behind that patented Clooney smile lies the venom of a seasoned Cobra who has built for himself such a powerful reputation that he is afforded the tainted luxury of being able to bite people's heads off without blinking an eye.
  • Clooney uses events where his feelings have been hurt -- to gain more power in "the business" of directing and writing a movie or whatever project he is involved with. Notice that quick cock of the head to the right, then to the left and a fallen countenance. This all means Clooney's ego has been bruised, but look out for a master-orchestrated press barrage that the incident was "not" Clooney's fault, but the film studio who doesn't really know his various idiosyncrasies.
  • "That" halfway-sincere chuckle -- Clooney draws from his arsenal when things are getting sticky with reporters and such is just one slick vehicle he has used to down-play "his" mistakes or ill-made decisions in a production that he thought was "the one" to let him ride to an Academy Award.
  • Clooney knows that -- when he appears on the major talk shows, he is running things. I have witnessed him being grilled about his marriage or relationship with his bud's on the Oceans Eleven franchise and without warning, Clooney's eyebrows drop and his chin jaunts outward and becomes quiet. These are signals for the talk show host to back-off and woe unto the "new kids" behind the talk desks who do not know how to read these signals.
  • Is "that" Crest toothpaste smile -- Clooney wears in public real? I cannot give that an intelligent answer.

But for my sake, I sure hope so.
