Green Celebrities

Just when you didn’t think you could hear more about how “green” Hollywood is, we’re bringing you the Hollywood Goes Green series. Sure, we sometimes scratch our heads wondering how celebs who live in 20,000-square-foot homes, charter private jets and own 10 vacation compounds call themselves green because they drive a Prius. But as it turns out, being green means more than using less electricity and carpooling. Check out our weekly pick for the top green celebrities in Hollywood. This week, we focus on George Clooney.


George Clooney is known for his great acting skills, his long list of former girlfriends (he's single again after another recent breakup) and, oh yeah, being so hot!

But much like our other green celebrities, Clooney is more than a bundle of talent and a beautiful face. He believes in both charitable and environmental causes. We also love that he's honest about how his celebrity lifestyle doesn't always mesh with green living.

In 2007, he told Time magazine, "You don't want to be a spokesperson unless you are absolutely committed to a cause because you can hurt it. I've been asked to help represent environmental groups. I'm a big proponent of cleaning up the environment. I have two electric cars. But I also have a big weak spot because I've flown on private jets."

That said, Clooney does care about the environment, and here's some proof.

Representing the green cause
Clooney appeared on the first "green" issue of Vanity Fair, along with Julia Roberts, Al Gore and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. His eco-friendly car, a Tango, was also featured in the photo spread. He traded his BMW for the electric two-seater, becoming the first American to purchase one.

Along with other celebs, his contribution to the green movement was profiled in the issue.

Oil Change
After he starred in Syriana, Clooney became involved with the launch of Oil Change, a campaign to eliminate America's dependence on foreign oil. The campaign also sought to educate Americans. "If you're doing a movie about oil consumption and corruption, you can't just talk the talk," Clooney said. "You gotta walk the walk."

Humanitarian work
In addition to his environmental work, Clooney is well-known for his humanitarian efforts. He has financially contributed and personally supported people all over the world in crisis, often appearing in-country. Clooney has been involved in raising awareness and funds for the Sudan crisis, the 2004 tsunami victims, the Haiti earthquake victims and more.
