RenÃ©e Zellweger and George Clooney are taking their show on the road. The stars of Leatherheads are premiering their film in small towns across the country making a stop in George’s home state of Kentucky, where he chatted with the Louisville Courier-Journal on Sunday. Saying of the residents of Maysville, “I’m just like them. I just happen to be a little more famous.”
Originally from nearby Augusta, Ky., George said of his experience growing up, “If you’re from a small town, you don’t really ever shake that. It’s the best support system and they’re always the biggest critics, which is kind of the fun of it.”
Everybody had a good time signing autographs and it was all fun and games until RenÃ©e’s hair inexplicably fell out.
