Look at the many faces of George Clooney in this series of pictures. He’s also guilty of a little mugging himself, as you can see. This, my friends, is why he’s a successful actor. He can open his mouth wide, close it, gesture with either his thumb or his pointer finger. He’s a versatile guy and that’s why he makes the big bucks. But then again, a lack of facial expression doesn’t seem to be required for starring in a blockbuster movie (see Hayden Christensen), so maybe I’m wrong.
In a recent interview, George said that he was held at gunpoint by child soldiers and mugged on a recent U.N. trip to the Sudan. And he’s not talking finger guns. According to George, “There were all these young kids with AK47s.” He went on to say, “They pointed guns at us and stole what they could. It happens all the time.”
Whoah, that sounds terrifying. Almost as scary as that one time he was almost attacked by a giant, grumpy bug.
