Is George Clooney scandal proof?

Post by Katiedot on Wed Dec 11 2013, 08:17

Well, is George Clooney scandal-proof? Thanks Henway for finding this, possibly one of the most poorly worded promotional pieces I've seen in a long time.

Is George Clooney Scandal Proof?

12.09.13

The new ReelzChannel series Hollywood Scandals gets into the gritty details of the most salacious stories to ever hit Tinseltown. After getting the inside scoop on all those celebs, we got to wondering, are there any movie stars that are impervious to scandals?

The first likely candidates that came to mind were guys like Tom Hanks and maybe Matt Damon — upstanding family men who probably live fairly normal lives despite their celebrity status. And really, they probably won't have a scandal because they don't lead scandalous lives, but they could be the subject of a scandal.

After reviewing the Elements of a Scandal it seemed that a guy with a good reputation and a family who became embroiled in a story of debauchery and intrigue would cause quite an uproar. Therefore, that kind of guy could have a scandal because there would be all kinds of controversy.

But what about a perennial bachelor? What about a guy who lets the whole world know that he lives the good life and isn't ashamed of it? What kind of scandal could that guy be in? We analyzed a wide array of scandals, it seems like George Clooney is the A-list celebrity who is most scandal proof.

What about a guy who lets the whole world know that he lives the good life and isn't ashamed of it? What kind of scandal could that guy be in? We analyzed a wide array of scandals, it seems like George Clooney is the A-list celebrity who is most scandal proof.

For example, what if it was reported that Clooney had a giant, three-day-long party at his Italian villa and the whole thing was non-stop debauchery, nudity, alcohol, and reckless abandon? Well, no one would be surprised, there'd be no reason to keep it a secret, and there'd be no controversy. Don't we all assume happens at chez Clooney from time to time? That wouldn't be nearly enough of a story to cause a scandal. But change the host of the party to someone like Tom Hanks, and all of a sudden people would be talking.

Another scenario that came up was: what if George Clooney had a tryst with a married woman? Any married woman, from a high-powered politician to a middle class housewife, would be up to her eyeballs in scandal from having a tryst with our favorite Facts of Life handyman. But George? It's hard to imagine any typical sex scandal that would reflect badly on someone who's already viewed as a ladies man — though his actual track record shows him to be more of a serial monogamist.

So then we started thinking that it would have to be something truly atrocious for a likable good-time guy to be scandalized. But what? Locking women in his basement? Well, considering that the basement wouldn't need a door let alone a lock to keep women there, it wouldn't be much of a scandal. And if Clooney were wanting to have a bunch of ladies living in his basement, he could just ask for applications. We're guessing he'd get tens of thousands of women begging for the opportunity.

The only thing that might — might mind you — cause some sort of scandalous news around Gorgeous George would be a drug-fueled, Charlie Sheen-style breakdown. Of course even then we'd expect there to be a lot of concern about the actor's health, possibly a telethon, but after all of that, George Clooney would flash that smile and we'd all forget those crazy things he said. How could we ever stay mad at him?

Merged!  Thanks Nicky80

As to the question, IMO George hasn't been caught up in any scandals.  He's either a lot less reckless than we might imagine or reeeeeeally good at getting away with it!

Wouldn't your average scandal require people to be paid to open their mouths? Wink Sorry, I'm being dirty now.

I think the author's point is an interesting one - there are scandals that would destroy some people that wouldn't do much damage to others.  It seems to me that was makes a scandal difficult to overcome is how much it differs from your projected image.  Like when Charlie Sheen's name came up in a madam's hooker client list a few years ago, everyone was like, "yeah, that sounds right."  I don't think there could be much involving a woman that would hurt George - I think he'd have to have a Mel Gibson-style meltdown for there to be a full-blown scandal.

Either that, or if, after they're married, Amal cheats on him! That would really do it! He might get a lot of sympathy, but it wouldn't do much for his image.

Well, I think if we're going by past track records, George is the likely cheater in this relationship.  That would hurt him a little I think, but probably would result in more of a "Well, what did you expect?" from most people.  

I don't see how Amal cheating would affect him negatively.  In my experience, when a woman cheats on a man, she's a s**t and he's been terribly wronged.  When a man cheats on a woman, he's just being a man, and she didn't try hard enough to keep him interested. If this goes south from either of them cheating, it's a safe bet that George will come out clean as a whistle.

Agreed, Missa. Him cheating on her = par for the course. Her cheating on him, IMO, = scandal, even though I think he'd come out of it ok, but with a pretty good dent in his "ladies man" image - Not that there aren't plenty of women who would want to console him! Very Happy
