    Is it leather? Her dress seems to have leather accents though. But the coat is nice.

    I did not know that George Clooney once had a beard.

    Are there rumors that he's hiding his homosexuality? Why is that this rumor of all rumors is always the most popular "go-to" rumor for male celebrities?

    I have a hypothetical question. Lets say there is a big male celebrity, an A-lister who is hiding his homosexuality for commercial reasons (that's incredibly sad but that's another story). What would motivate a woman to become his beard wife? Especially, if she herself was not in show business and didn't really need the coverage and glamour of the "dream couple."

    I guess the biggest motivator could be money?

    Marriage, smarriage...I just wish he'd make another movie on a par with The Descendants...I'm crazy about that picture. He was quite effective in that.

    I think you can picture how much people who are blessed with a lot, feel like they're missing something, that could come in a lot of shapes.
    Plus, I'd say Clooney is probably a charming company, which could be the cherry thrown on top.


    He is a spectacular actor. Even though I expected more from The Descendants (hte movie, not him): it's my kind of movie, and I decided to not even archive it. Haven't seen Gravity yet (my bad, I know).

    A huge upgrade in one's lifestyle and social network. I think that's worth it for some people. Heck, I'd marry a Kardashian, LOL.


    --------------------------


    If a guy is a lifelong's bachelor then the rumor is that he must be gay, especially if he's attractive and desirable (at least on paper, anyway) like Clooney. But the same assumption is not made for a woman though; For example, Cameron Diaz doesn't seem to have much success with long term relationship, but I've never read anything about people assuming that she might be a lesbian.

    I tweeted that because he's marrying a Druze human rights attorney instead of me, he must be anti-Semitic. AND RABID ISRAEL DEFENDERS ATTACKED ME. Chill, people. :rolleyes:

    Very true, it's a double-standard. It's also a double standard that a man can get engaged to a woman 16 years younger and no one will say it's an issue, while a woman doing the same will be ridiculed.

    The Decendents was really good. Although one of my favourite GC role was in Burn After Reading (I think he had a beard in that).
