George Clooney Calls Out Daily Mail For B.S. Story About His Fiancée’s Mom

  • George Clooney is hopping mad at the UK’s Daily Mail for allegedly fabricating a story about his fiancée’s mom. Yesterday, the rag reported that Baria Alamuddin, his lawyer love Amal Alamuddin’s mother, was unhappy that Clooney is not part of the family’s Lebanese religious sect. “She is in no way against the marriage,” Clooney said in a statement to USA Today. “The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous.” [Guardian UK]

George Clooney Just Might Actually Run For Senate

  • Just as Amelia predicted, rumor has it, George Clooney eventually wants to become a United States senator, and may have his sights set on winning the California governor’s office in the meantime. According to US Weekly, he’s close with President Obama, and his romance with Amal Alamuddin is “strategic.” [I knew it! I KNEEEWWWWW ITTTTT. -- Amelia] [Celebitchy]

Meet Tasha McCauley, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Cool Brainiac Girlfriend (Plus, 12 Other Famous Dudes Who’ve Fallen For Non-Famous Women)

Welp, another one of our dream celebrity boyfriends is off the market, but I gotta say, I’m stoked to see “one of us” — i.e. a commoner! — has snagged him! Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the dreamy actor/director behind one of my fave movies of the last few years, “Don Jon,” is dating Tasha McCauley, a cofounder of a Silicon Valley robotics company. Um, hi, smarty pants. The two were photographed being all chummy and adorable in LA this week (you can see the photos here), the first time they’ve been spotted together since JGL confessed that he had a secret girlfriend back in September 2013. “‘I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public,” he told Howard Stern. “The girl that I’m with, she really doesn’t want to be a part of it and you can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny.” Oops, sorry. Well, for what it’s worth, I think McCauley sounds rad. She speaks English, Arabic, and Spanish, and addition to founding Fellow Robots, a telepresence technology company (whatever the fuck that means), McCauley also founded the 10^9+ Foundation, which encourages students to develop technology that will positively affect the world’s population. Get it, girl. [Daily Mail UK]

I enjoy love stories like this because one of my goals in life — in addition to publishing a book, going to space, and having a baby or two — is to bed a celebrity. Preferably one whose name rhymes with Bryan Tosling. It’s a long shot, but what keeps my hope and fantasy fires stoked are the many male celebs who’ve dated or settled down with a woman who’s significantly less famous than them — or a complete commoner, like yours truly. Besides JGL, here are some other non-famous women who’ve managed to nab a star…

Theory: George Clooney Is Going To Announce He’s Running For Office

Theory: George Clooney Is Totally Going To Announce He's Running For Office
George Clooney engaged!

What’s more cynical than suggesting George Clooney got engaged to Amal Alamuddin because he either knocked her up or is trying to do preemptive damage control on an incoming gay scandal? My new theory that Clooney is giving up his dedication to the bachelor life to marry the accomplished lawyer — someone “on his level,” finally! — because he’s going to announce a run for political office. HEAR ME OUT.

Rumors that Clooney has his eye on Washington have swirled for awhile now and the actor is certainly one of the more politically vocal celebs in Hollywood. His views on social and economic issues aren’t particularly radical or outside the status quo and he’s been rewarded with a certain level of insider status, serving as one of the United Nations Messengers of Peace since 2008. As an Oscar-winning actor and accomplished director, he’s pretty much peaked in his chosen career. Perhaps it’s time for a second? Keep reading »

George Clooney Is Engaged To Amal Alamuddin

George Clooney Is Engaged To Amal Alamuddin

Hell hath frozen over. George Clooney, who has said over and over again that he likes being a bachelor, is allegedly engaged to Amal Alamuddin, the British attorney he’s been dating since October 2013. I say “allegedly” because George himself has yet to confirm the news, but People magazine is reporting it via “a source with knowledge of the situation” which basically means someone on George’s team who wants to make it seem like this news is accidentally leaking. (Seriously, a lot of the time magazine “sources” are actually just PR people wanting to remain anonymous for, duh, PR purposes. Anyhoo.) Also, Alamuddin was spotted wearing a fat ring on her engagement finger. Keep reading »
