George Clooney, Energy Expert?

October 22nd, 2007 // 16 Comments

Hmm, now, I know that he appears to be a spry gentleman who dates women half his age, despite the graying temples and whatnot, but I had no idea that George Clooney would be a qualified candidate to sit on the executive board of an energy company. The Swiss company will be charged with the task of creating energy-efficient methods for automobiles and other energy-consuming appliances. Nicolas Hayek, the billionaire behind the whole operation and chairman of the Swatch Group, said that he initially was unsure if Al Gore would be a better fit, but ultimately decided to offer the position to Clooney. Um, well, I guess this is a good thing, publicity-wise, but I still don’t understand the correlation. Whatever, instead, I’d rather focus on the fact that George is looking very rugged in his leather jacket and expensive jeans, which he wears with some well-worn boots. Honestly, I can’t help but find it hot that his boots are dirty. But that’s just me.

    No wonder she looks so doped up – Universal Law #27, when your dude dumps the bike over and you get injured, time to break up, cause he’s a dolt…..unless you coke up all day, then you won’t notice you’re datin’ an overrated clod.

    Is that the reason he dropped out of a movie that was being developed especially for him? So he can talk about things he doesn’t know anything about while parading his latest escort around town? Whatever happened to his intention of keeping his private life private? I never cared about who he dated when but this one looks fake, as if he waits until the paparazzi have arrived, so everyone can get a good shot at the ageing womanizer and his go-go dancing waitress… whatever.

    What the hell is happening to these celebs, have they been taking lessons from the skankelina club? He is an idiot! Really!

    I’m all for decreasing dependency on foreign oil, but George Clooney is just another self-important A$$. They should have gone with Al Gore. Idiots.

    Would help if you gave some info on the pics e.g. where, when etc.

    Wow, there’s a lot of anger here. If they are going to use their celebrity for good, let them. It raises awareness and sometimes that’s what’s most important. As well, George Clooney doesn’t court the papparazzi. He gets caught but it’s not like we’re bombarded every day with photos of him.

    And Lisa, I love work boots on a man. It’s so masculine. Her boots are hideous but she’s with George Clooney and I’m not so……

  9. I think it is a good decision by this guy to pick Clooney. I mean Gore’s extensive resume as a climatologist means that he is better utilized elsewhere. Clooney, as the face of Hollywood, will better serve the role and plus most folks find him more attractive than Gore. I mean if we are to be saved from ourselves, i believe it will be Hollywood that does it.

    The correlation is G. clooney is a product ammassador for Omega Watches which is a luxury brand for Swatch Watch. He already has a relationship set up with the company and theya re familiar with him, I would expect, his attnetion towards trying to be more “green” (I question this with his limo use, private jets around the world and 2-3 huge homes which use enormous amounts of electricity all power by the burning of coal (exect maybe in CA.) Anyway, he also owns a Tango and I think several other hybrid type cars, and has the lime light for toehr world causes. his ovrall charm globally and his positive image with his charity work is of course ideal for an organization. Being a board member means you are an advisor, not necissarly the ulitmate decision maker. that is what the CEO is for. It also helps with funding and image. Some baord memebrs are there for face value and get compensated in such a way. other’s are actual entrepenuers and their business sense is acquired and needed and they are comensated as such. Not sure which side of the fence Mr. Clooney sits on, but I don’t expect he is making strategy and crunching numbers.

  13. I don’t care why he’s agreed to be on the energy board. He keeps up a busy schedule and if he is just trying to make a better world I applaud him. I can’t help but notice he is always busy with movie projects and by the time he has finished one he ends up tired and thin. Give him a break……Maybe the people that are making such mean comments are just jealous ……Sharon…Statesville, N.C.

    I have to agree with a lot of you. I think Al Gore would have been a much better choice. Hell even Leonardo DiCaprio would have been a much better Hollywood Choice if you must go there. George just said in a interview from Toyko that he would be a hypocrite if he said anyhing about the environmnet and yet here he is taking this job. K is right he is being a hypocrite in doing so. As to people being Jealous..well yes and NO mostly NO! Have you seen the way she dresses i read how she is classy and smart and yet hello dress sence please THEN there is the fact that, as said above she is NOT a Girlfriend she is how ever a PAID ECOURT! You have to know he is not only paying her rent back home but he is also giving her spending money, hence the clothes, and paying her to sit in a hotel room waiting for him to get off work so she can entertain and service him. Do you know how pathetic it is for a man of his caliber to be PAYING FOR PUSSY! It is just sad the depths he has sunk to. And one has to wonder is it for publicity or a really big show to hide his homosexuality? I have read a lot about him and his male partner in months before Sarah came to be with him. and I did notice his all MALE crew on his boat too. You have to wonder why a man who stayed private for years, is suddenly out in the open just as rumors are about regarding his sexuality?
