What’s better than being in a picture with George Clooney?
Probably this picture of George Clooney photobombing what would have been a lovely portrait of Jewish Hollywood.
Steven Spielberg, Jerry Seinfeld and wife Jessica were posing at the USC Shoah Foundation Institute’s 2013 Ambassadors for Humanity gala when someone unexpected tried to jump in. George Clooney had just accepted the Ambassador for Humanity Award for his humanitarian efforts in Haiti and Africa and apparently felt the need to be included.
Aw, George — all you have to do is ask (or marry a nice Jewish girl…)!
As appropriate, Deadline held a caption contest to properly capture the essence of the moment.
And the winner is: “It’s every Jewish person’s nightmare: A huge ham lurking behind you.”
The honorable mentions are definitely worth checking out.
Do you have any caption ideas? Let us know in the comments.
In case you hadn’t heard, there is going to be a big fundraising bash for President Obama’s reelection campaign tonight over at George Clooney’s place.
No one — well, at least no Democrat — would want to miss that, right? But before you run to put on your party dress, you might want to know what it’s going to cost you to get through Clooney’s front door.
Whoops! You know those Kim Jong-il “ashes” that Sacha Baron Cohen — in character as the Supreme Leader of Wadiya — spilled all over Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the Oscars? Well, it turns out that they were originally meant for George Clooney…and that the provocateur is contrite over the incident.
Last weekend, Baron Cohen made a surprise cameo on Saturday Night Live and used the opportunity to apologize to Seacrest, who was also on the set. “I didn’t realize that ‘The Dictator’ was doing a walk on cameo [on SNL]!” Seacrest said, according to Perez Hilton. “He comes off stage and comes over to me. He breaks character and says, ‘Sorry about the Oscars. It wasn’t personal.’”
A gritty tale of stolen Nazi artwork is about to get the big-budget treatment from Hollywood.
“The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History,” by author Robert M. Edsel, has been optioned by actor/filmmaker George Clooney, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Clooney and producing partner Grant Heslov will adapt the book into a screenplay; the film “will likely serve as a starring vehicle for the ‘Descendants’ star,” who will also direct, the Hollywood Reporter said.
