Renée Zellweger and George Clooney Take ‘Leatherheads’ Across America

Renée 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 Renée’s hair inexplicably fell out.
