11 George Clooney Facts You Probably Didn't Know      
It's already been a big year for George Clooney! He got engaged to girlfriend Amal Alamuddin, released The Monuments Men, and on Tuesday he turns 53 years old. We all know George got his start in Hollywood more than three decades ago and spent five years playing Dr. Doug Ross on ER, but let's take a look at some lesser-known facts about the star.

Oh no, no need to apologize. I wasn't criticizing you for posting. Just Popsugar thinks that his fans don't know this stuff?

The woman in that last picture probably cringed when it was originally published and she saw how bad her ass looked with that sweater tied around it.

brahahahahaha

George of course, looks wonderful in MOST not all of the pictures. Cannot stand the pictures of him with that mullet hair! Geesh!
