As if his good looks and sweet smile weren’t enough, George Clooney has the heart the size of the world.
No, we’re not talking about the romantic getaways or expensive wining and dining dinners he treats his current lady lust Stacy Keibler to. We’re talking about another pup that has stolen his heart – an overweight, dry eyed cocker spaniel with a thyroid problem named Einstein.
Clooney expressed interest in adopting Einstein after the tender pup was rescued from a high-kill shelter in 2009 and brought to Camp Cocker by Cathy Stanley.
According to People Magazine, Clooney expressed interest in adopting the pup but was told that Einstein would have to like him first. So when Einstein paid his prospective adopter a visit in January 2010, Clooney did what anyone would do – he rubbed meatballs on his shoes – and Einstein was his!
“Forever, now, he just thinks of me as the guy with the meatball feet,” Clooney told Esquire. “He loves me. I can do no wrong. He follows me everywhere.”
In our hearts, Clooney (seen here lending his star support to ER producer John Wells as he receives a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame along Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, CA on January 12th) is already a winner. But with critics and fans alike celebrating his role in The Descendents, he’s a sure fire win to collect his third Golden Globe Award this weekend.
