Birth Sign

When George Clooney was born in Lexington, Kentucky in 1961, no one could have suspected what kind of success he would be. He was born to his mother, Nina Bruce, both a beauty queen and a city councilwoman. His father, Nick Clooney had already been in show business, having been a former anchorman and a game show host. In addition to that, his aunt had already achieved fame as a cabaret singer and actress by the name of Rosemary Clooney. In fact, he has several cousins that work as actors including:

  • Miguel Ferrer
  • Rafael Ferrer
  • Gabriel Ferrer

Additionally, Rafael is married to the singer, Debby Boon.  In his early years, Clooney would attend Blessed Sacrament School in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, but spent a great deal of his time in Ohio. In Ohio, he would attend St. Michael’s School in Columbus, and Western Row Elementary school in Mason, Ohio. During his final years in Ohio, he spent his time as an altar boy at St. Susanna School in Mason. Midway through the seventh grade, however, the Clooney’s would move back to Kentucky, and George would be diagnosed with Bell’s palsy, suffering paralysis of the face. The condition, however, disappeared in about a year, though he considered the damage to have already been done for his social career. When his parents moved to Augusta, Kentucky, Clooney of course would attend August high school. There he was a member of both the baseball and basketball team. As a matter of fact, this involvement would lead to him trying out for the Cincinnati Reds in 1977, however he did not make the cut. Instead, he took a journalism major at Northern Kentucky University from 1979 to 1981. He would also attend the University of Cincinnati, but he did not graduate from either university. Instead, he would make his living selling women’s shoes and insurance door to door, which was a lucrative business opportunity in the pre-internet days. He would also work construction and cut tobacco for a living.

Where Is He Now?

Clooney is still heavily involved in humanitarian work and does still star in movies. Right now, he is expected to star in the movie Tomorrowland which will undoubtedly be a box office hit.

Career Accomplishments

The first time that Clooney would appear on screen was as an extra in a mini-series called Centennial which was filed in 1978. The film was shot partly in Clooney’ hometown, Augusta Kentucky, which made it very easy for him to score a role, but his first major role would start in 1984, and it is not the role that most remember him for. The first major role that Clooney scored was in a sitcom called E/R, which is NOT the hospital drama. Following that, he would play a handyman on The Facts of Life, and even appeared as a detective on an episode of The Golden Girls. Finally, he took on a regular role on the show Rosanne, as Rosanne Barr’s supervisor. When 1988 rolled around, Clooney would play a role in the film ‘Return of the Killer Tomatoes’, during which time he took a course at the Beverly Hills Playhouse acting school, an endeavor which would last for a period of five years. In 1994, Clooney would take on the job that catapulted him to fame, playing Dr. Doug Ross on the hit NBC show ER. This was a regular role that would last from 1994 to 1999, and though he left the show in 1999, he would make a cameo appearance in season 6, and took on a guest spot in the final season. His work on this show would earn him two Emmy Award nominations along with three Golden Globe awards nominations for Best Actor. Though Clooney received high praise for his work on ER, it was not the only project he had in the pipeline. During his time on the show he worked in several movies, one of which was the hit film: ‘From Dusk till Dawn’. In addition to that he would play in the romantic comedy: ‘One Fine Day’ alongside Michelle Pfeiffer. He also played in ‘The Peacemaker’ with Nicole Kidman. Leaving ER seemed to open the floodgates of success for Clooney as he quickly starred in three very successful films. These included: ‘The Perfect Storm’, ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou’, and finally, signed a contract to appear in the movie Ocean’s Eleven which was a remake of the 1960’s film by the same name. Following that, there would be Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen, which both saw the return of Clooney as the main character. Clooney made his directorial debut with the 2002 film ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind’ which was based on the autobiography of Chuck Barris. The film was essentially a box office failure, but critics stated that Clooney showed promise with his directing skills. In 2006,. Clooney would finally win the Oscar for his role in the movie Syriana. Clooney has won a number of awards throughout his career which include two Academy Awards, Best Picture for Argo, a BAFTA, and of course a Golden Globe for his role in the hit movie The Descendants. His fame however, stretches far beyond the silver screen.

Most Known For

As far as acting is concerned, George Clooney is mostly known for his work on the television show ER, but outside of acting, he is known for a considerable amount of humanitarian work. For example, Clooney has become involved with an organization called ‘Not on Our Watch Project’ which focuses on stopping global atrocities. He, for example, helped to organize the Telethon ‘Hope ofr Haiti Now’ following the 2010 Haiti earthquake. He has been notably involved in a number of other humanitarian activities including staged re-enactment called ‘8’ which reenacted the federal trial responsible for overturning California’s Prop 8 ban on same sex marriage. These efforts however, were a bit closer to home, and Clooney has been responsible for several acts that stretch beyond the borders of the United States. Clooney, for example, has been advocating a resolution to he Darfur conflict, having spent ten days in Chad and Sudan with his father in the interest of producing a TV special titled: “A Journey to Darfur”. In an arguably controversial move, George Clooney staged a display of civil disobedience outside the Sudanese Embassy for which he was arrested. Alongside him, was Martin Luther King III.
