Okay, he's got to stop selling things. It's looking a little cheap now, IMHO.

I've always maintained that he knows every single thing that's said and written about him online. I think he knows about the various gossip sites, and when there's a post about him, he knows about it. He's a control freak, and there's no way he wouldn't know.

As for this ad....is it just naked greed, or did George and his other Hollywood pals take a huge financial hit when the market tanked? Because this crap is tacky! LOL. If working in the film business isn't paying him enough to maintain his lavish lifestyle, maybe it's time to downside? I mean, it's kind of embarrassing after a while, isn't it? Eventually, are we going to see him do an ad like Julia Roberts, where he just stands there, grins his famous grin, and then gets a multi-million dollar paycheck? There's something tacky about incredibly rich people getting such easy paychecks for doing such cringe-worthy ads.

I've never thought of clooney as having a lavish lifestyle. Como is his second home, not a luxury, and apart from his LA home, and the Cabo place, that seems quite modest by comparison with other (comparable) celebs.

LOL, Como isn't just a home, it's an estate. To me, an estate in an exclusive part of a country, plus his LA home, plus his Cabo place, plus private jets, expensive cars, motorcycles, whatever....that to me is lavish. It certainly isn't a middle-class or modest lifestyle, or anywhere near it.

But my point is the need for these ads and their requisite large paychecks. Clearly, he needs the money or he wouldn't be doing these ads. Even he admitted that this is how he makes his pay these days. I just find them tacky, is all.

I always thought that he did these ads so he could concentrate on making the movies he wanted to make and not have to worry about large blockbusters.

I'm not sure why he needs so much money. I did wonder whether he was one of the celebs caught up in the Bernie Madoff scandal or whether he just fritters it away on stuff, but he said while he was stll in ER that his accountant told him he had enough to last the rest of his life. Since then he's made millions more on the Oceans movies and so on.

The more you have, the more you think you need, right?

He does have his family to support. Ada's kids will probably want to go to college, his folks aren't getting any younger, and all those Ferrer cousins...

Not to mention Betty's bikini budget.

I still believe that he makes sure all his friends and family are very well taken care of. We've all heard of some of his lavish spending - motorcycles for the boys for Christmas, trips/vacations that he foots the bill, etc. But, I also think that he's quite frugal and we know he has some smarts, so I'll bet that he has probably invested VERY wisely. I never heard that he had invested with Bernie, so I don't know. Several did and lost big, but it doesn't sound like something George would do. Maybe I've got my rose-colored glasses on, but I think that George has a pretty big nest egg. I think that's part of what keeps him away from marriage too. He seems to spend freely while he's with someone, but I don't think he wants to "share" any part of it in a divorce.

maybe, at this oint and time, he is raising money to back his Sudan efforts. Contributing massive amounts of money to a politicians campaign fund can help sway them to your cause.

He needs money for his movies, his friends/family, his philanthropy, and his large bar/bimbo tabs. Okay.

Fastweb, though? A lame commercial for a lame product (possibly connected to some shady types). And if he is constantly on TV selling crap, people will get sick of him, thereby diluting his future earning potential.

BTW, Casey, heaven forbid he read any of this! Therein lies madness.

I believe in the past he has said he has had to put up his house to finance some of his films. I think it was related to health issues. I also read that he likes to have final cut on the films he directs. To do this - takes money and IMO certain deals.

He used his house as collateral for insurance when he made GN&GL because they wouldn't insure him so soon after surgery. Final cut is something you negotiate so neither action would have cost him money.

Does anyone know how much he earns for his endorsements? I remember a figure like US$90 million from Nestle and US$45 million from Omega, but I can't find now where I read those figures.

If the perfume thing is true, his side were asking US$30 million for a Clooney perfume/aftershave.

Those figures sound right to me Katie. Don't remember where I saw them though. I do wonder on some of the other celebs why they choose some of the ads they do. Just so they "keep in your face" and nobody forgets them since maybe their careers are not going where they want them to go? George has stated in the past that people are going to get tired of his face and he'd be happy behind the camera. So, why all the "in your face" ads? Is that his vain side - DON'T FORGET ME - , cuz' I just can't believe that he NEEDS the money. Maybe wants it, but doesn't need it?

As far as I'm concerned Vi, I care about George the person, actor, director, humanitarian, etc., and I've been "following" him for several years. I come here to read the articles, look at the pictures, and BS with fellow Clooney fans. We all have our opinions and that's what I feel makes us all unique, yet drawn to a common cause - George. We post things that we wonder about, questions we have, answers we have, opinions that we have. Nobody is totally right and nobody is totally wrong. I for one, value everybody's opinion, however, that doesn't mean I do or have to agree with that person. When people start calling other people out, that's when it becomes not fun, and then we've become IMDb. I DON'T WANT TO GO THERE!!!! I enjoy coming here and I will continue to do so. As I hope you do! And, by the way, George does have a "Clooney value" to his fans, the studios, etc.

I think George has put alot of his own money into his projects and as we all know they haven't all hit the mark. He is one of the few willing to put his money where his mouth is. He also has staff to pay, stan etc and taxes so while some amounts sound alot he may end up with not so much. More then most of us but to do some of the things he wants too he may need to keep the cash flowing in. Not so sure I'm believing the perfume thing cause I can imagine the boys giving him heaps over that sort of thing. He does give too several charities that we would have no idea about as well and there is the women.......

Not everyone on here is American Vi...some of us are English (including Katiedot), Australian, Canadian, French, Belgian and Italian....we are not reducing George by talking about how much money he has...it's not an insult to him IMO.

None of it is secret information. His paychecks have been made public he talked about the cost of his houses etc himself. So if he has no trouble with it and why would he I don't see any problems with our talk.

Um, not sure where we're going here, but, just to clarify......are we talking about George's Fastweb campaign? I went back to the beginning of the thread, but don't really know if we're talkiing about a particular ad, or just his ads in general.... Since Fastweb's been mentioned, I wondered why he took this one also....must've been ALOT of money, and/or he's doing a favor for someone that's involved with Fastweb.
@Vi....honey, what's wrong? You seem so frustrated and angry lately. The best value that George offers to us is that, because of him, we have boards like this where we can blow off steam over his life, and forget about our own for a little while. We all love some things about him, and hate others. What we say here isn't going to change the way he is or lives his life. It's all good. Love2

It started on another thread about a mens cologne ad and why celebs choose to do them. Do they really need the money? Vi, I'm sorry if I hurt you in anyway or made you feel unwelcome.I had just come from lurking on another fan site that comments made about this site and all of us(IMO) was hurtful and wrong.So when I read some of your comments I felt the need to defend this site.

It's ok guys. I've contacted Vi by pm (or mp as this site insists on calling it) so please let's leave it at that and focus on what's at hand.

Sorry this thread doesn't entirely make sense bellybaby. It was moved from another thread about George advertising fastweb as it had become a separate discussion of its own.
