One of our biggest newspapers printed a story this weekend about George being in Germany Hartz. Supposed to be 50 fact. I like number 21 - so cute Laughing 



50 times George Clooney


Wherever George Clooney puts down the foot for his latest film, people tell stories afterwards. 50 new German stories.


1 When George Clooney arrived in February with the Learjet at Magdeburg-Cochstedt airport, he was immediately recognized by the Air Safety Assistant Silke Scheidt - but not as an actor, but as an advertising face of Nespresso. The woman said to Clooney "coffee man". He laughed - and had his photo taken with her.

2 Clooney was shooting for his film The Monuments Men until the end of June 2013, more than 40 locations in Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Berlin and Lower Saxony. Clooney is a director, screenwriter, actor. The story of Americans save German museum items from the Nazis shortly before the end of the Second World War. Starring: Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman.

3 Clooney's crew consisted of approximately 500 employees, in the Hartz had 2500 with extras.

4 The superstar stayed at the only five-star hotel in Saxony-Anhalt: Zu den Rothen trout in Ilsenburg.

5 Clooney visited five times in recent months the Hartz.

6 His most recent visit was also his longest to date: From 22 April to 27 May Clooney booked the Hotel Zu den Rothen completly for himself and 70 crew members.

8 In the hotel pond was around the clock a diver to stand guard.

9 Between 85 and 125 € the single room costs per night. The total revenue from the last Clooney Stay: probably seven figures.

10th About 400 times the hotel appeared during filming in newspapers, television and radio shows. Advertising for the equivalent of one million euros, says the hotel manager.

11th The hotel was rebuilt in 2012. The former bathhouse was converted for 600,000 euros in a tap-and bulletproof suite - for the benefit particularly prominent guests. That Clooney would come was not known at the time. He stayed in the "bathhouse".

15th During his time in Ilsenburg George Clooney turned 52. A well-known East German state politicians thought he was the one with whom Clooney would prefer to spend the birthday evening. So he had to call the Hotel where CLooney stayed: He would like to invite the actor. However, the politician said: The food should not be more expensive than the public expense allowance. Whether the hotel could pay part of the bill? Clooney said no.

16th Before Clooney's birthday, on 6 May, appointed director of the Hotel a five-member committee to find a suitable gift. On the Internet, the team found: that Cloone drives at home a Honda Valkyrie Rune. In a roundabout way they got the same bike, to allow the master a trip through the Hartz. Kindly, he did a round

28th Restaurant boss Huong Trute neither recognized John Goodman nor Matt Damon at their first visit. One guest told her whom they had served.

31, Clooney said goodbye to all employees of the restaurant personally, the women got a kiss on the cheek.

32nd Meanwhile, an image of the film crew hangs in the restaurant - next to the image of Angela Merkel. The Chancellor had once honored the restaurant for they social commitment.

Just goes to the show the incredible amount of free publicity Mr Clooney can generate just by staying in a hotel, visiting playgrounds etc - and I bet the people there treated him really well in appreciation.

Thanks Nicky, wonderful article I really enjoyed it. This was a very expensive production. God Bless George & Grant, as usual it seems they left very little to chance. I cannot wait for this one, very excited to see how all George's hard work turned out, true professional. Thanks again so much.

Interesting trivia. I love all the little details.
Like a chronicle...

16th ....On the Internet, the team found: that Cloone drives at home a Honda Valkyrie Rune. In a roundabout way they got the same bike, to allow the master a trip through the Hartz. Kindly, he did a roundz

Too bad there were no photos of the master riding the Valkyrie  through the Hartz.  
Valkyries are mammoth-sized, aren't they?  Boy, he'd look puny on that. Laughing 
Anyway, I like him on Harleys...

MM does sound exciting...Like an adventure.

Yes that's what the artical wanted to show. George arrives and million stories starting LOL

By the way: Not sure if that was clear but with "playground" they mean the basketball court which was right next to the playground at the school. It is mentioned in nr 20 but 21 can be a bit confusion LOL

He played with the cildren, or not?

No read nr 20 first.

20th Some men from Clooney's film team often played basketball in the playground of the primary school Princess Ilse.

Clooney joined once for a basketball match and the basketball court is on the property from the school right next to the playground. So when George came the kids wanted to play "basketball" as well with the crew.
I know it is a bit confusing.

Well, now i said that. That's how I get it. Don't think he would play with children at the playground. This school is for really young kids.....I mean.......no I think nr 20 and 21 belong together.
