George Clooney has great female friends

Post by Katiedot on Wed Aug 10 2011, 09:34

Thanks to Henway for the link. Not sure why it's dated recently because this quote comes from some years ago.

From: female first

George Clooney has great girl friends

10 August 2011

George Clooney likes to be surrounded by ''strong'' women and values ''honesty and humour'' in his friends.

George Clooney has "truly great" female friends.

The 50-year-old actor - who recently split from girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis after two years together and is now rumoured to be dating former wrestler Stacy Keibler - values the company of women and insists he doesn't always have any romantic involvement with the "strong" ladies he likes to surround himself with.

He said: "I've always had really great friends on both sides of the aisle, so to speak.

"I grew up with strong women, my mom is strong and so is my sister and so was my aunt, Rosemary Clooney.

I've always been comfortable around women. I have some truly great women friends and the friendship is non-romantic."I've always been comfortable around women. I have some truly great women friends and the friendship is non-romantic."

The 'Syriana' actor values honesty and humour in his friends, and loves the way his loved ones keep him grounded.

He told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "I look for a sense of humour and fun, an interest in other people and, most important of all, honesty.

"I don't surround myself with people who are on my payroll and have to agree with every word I say.

"There's a lot of smooth talking around. But for every person who says to me, 'Wow, you were brilliant in that', there's a friend, or my mom, dad, or sister, rolling their eyes and going, 'Yeah George, you're really a genius.' That's very important to me."

I know it's been said by others on this forum already, but it's so strange that his girlfriends appear so different from the characteristics he admires in his friends.

Maybe he doesn't consider his girlfriends "friends" it could be part of the problem....

George Clooney likes strong women

Post by Guest on Wed Aug 10 2011, 13:44


George Clooney says he likes to be surrounded by strong women -- and values honesty and humour in friends.

The 50-year-old, who recently split from girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis after being together for two years, is now rumoured to be dating former wrestler Stacy Keibler, reports contactmusic.com.

"I've always had really great friends on both sides of the aisle, so to speak. I grew up with strong women, my mom is strong and so is my sister and so was my aunt, Rosemary Clooney," said Clooney.

"I've always been comfortable around women. I have some truly great women friends and the friendship is non-romantic," he added.

The actor also values honesty and humour in his friends, and loves the way his loved ones keep him grounded.

"I look for a sense of humour and fun, an interest in other people and, most important of all, honesty. I don't surround myself with people who are on my payroll and have to agree with every word I say," he said.

When he says "strong", I don't think he means someone who can pin him for a count of 10. Can't picture him happy with a scissor lock either.

Amen,, to that. However, if a strong woman loves her man, she can do wonders in the bedroom, too.

Two different publications, but it seems to be the same article, so I've merged the threads here.

That's their loss. Too bad they'll never find out just what they're missing.

Assuming he even said these things in the first place, a big assumption with Hello, how does such an apparently self aware person get themselves so wrong? Does he actually believe what he's saying?

I get the impression George says things he thinks people want to hear. Especially women he does seem good at it! He can't really say I like my women skanky and prefer those who like to flash their boobs and butts all over the internet and who aren't really that bright but can cook sea bass or make a chopped salad. Just doesn't have the same classy tone!

So true. It's the same way when he said that "I don't think a woman being thin is important" but is only ever seen out with women who weigh something between scrawny and seriously skinny.

Maybe he does mean what he says. Let's face it, how many size 14 and up young women do you see in the world of Hollywood and the like, who would even consider trying to get close to George (or any other male celeb). Most of us larger sized girls do have a personal image problem (me included). I've seen pics of George in the company of some "unskinny/uncrawny" ladies in the past. He doesn't shun them, is polite, attentive, smiling, laughing, interacting with them. (Amy Cohen, his past asst., Ada, his sister, and a few I don't have any identity for).

He is human, is all male and loves to be fawned over. The beautiful, scrawny, nubile females are definitely the ones who will get, not only his attention, but conversely the attention of the paps. Besides, wouldn't you rather see a beauty on his arm, than a plain jane? I know I would. Beauty compliments gorgeous so well.

Hm, no. Although I'm realistic enough to know that he will never in a million years end up with a plain Jane, I do find it weird that people think he should only date beauties as though he were too good for anything else. No wonder overweight (and I guess ugly) women have such issues if the message they get all the time is 'you don't deserve this because of the way you look'.

God bless Pierce Brosnan for his taste in women and for sticking two fingers up to the world.

The two women you mentioned weren't George's dates. One was his assistant and the other is his sister.

I know who they were and I didn't say he should only date beauties. I'd love to see a "me type" on his arm, but I know I'd be damn uncomfortable walking down the red carpet next to him.

My citing Amy and Ada was just to show that he doesn't shy away from "my type" and they were the only two names I could think of. Actually, while I've seen pics of him w/ the like, I didn't know who they were then and never tried to find out. If he were so very beauty prone in his life, wouldn't he have found a assistant (with all the work attributes he found in Amy) who would pass the test.

Katiedot,
You are so right, and I think Pierce Brosnan's wife is really beautiful, she has a wonderful face and skin.
And she helps him to get many more sympathies:
A few years back, on a German TV-channel they had a voting for the sexiest man alive. Number 1, of course, was George. But number 2, what a surprise - Pierce Brosnan. And all the comments, given by both "celebs" and ordinary people said that he was not only good looking but also had a great taste in women.
Maybe George should get some advise from him...

Isn't his assistant Angel McConnell? I think she has been for a while (dating back to when he mentioned her on David Letterman show during Britney Spears' fiasco) I've seen a photo of her, she's not bad but not a true beauty.

That's where the term "stonehenge" started. He used that word to see if Angel was allright in his guest house. I think he values competency (in his assistant anyway) as someone who would pass the test.

He is truly a nice guy and would be friendly to anyone no matter what they look like.

Oh I agree he's friendly to everybody, but in terms of associating himself publicly with someone (ie: with a date) then he has a 100% rate of only dating thin women. I don't know how to explain this well (it's my bed time now so please excuse woolly thinking) but there's a difference between people he might employ, casually know or be related to and someone he chooses to be with.

I'm not bemoaning that because he lives in Hollywood and clearly thinks a 30-year old slim woman is the ideal for him.

Patti - I didn't mean that you were saying he was like that, I meant people generally. Sorry that didn't come out so well the way I wrote it.

It's been said before but maybe his ideal woman is someone like his mom - thin beauty queen. I've also noticed that the women he dates seem to get thinner during the course of the relationship. He like to keep himself thin too - so maybe that's just his personal preference in women he dates irrespective of his Hollywood surroundings.

That's what I think Sabby! And that’s why they don’t stay together. He’s been dating the “sexy hot chick” because he’s the “sexy hot guy”. You know that never works! He really should find someone more like his Mother! Not that it would be easy to find that now days but at least someone who’s “put together” better! Then that makes you think about his “no marriage” stance. That could be why he dates women that don’t feed him intellectually! I feel sorry for him because splitting up with a woman every couple of years has to drain you. Maybe even put you off of dating all together. But I don’t see that happening to George… he likes women!

short/tall; skinny/fat; butt-ugly/drop-dead gorgeous. We are all BEAUTIFUL!!! He LOVES us all when we put our skinny-asses or wide-load butts in the theater seats and watch his films. I've seen several actors with their wives who would be considered "less than Hollywood beautiful" and they certainly don't seem embarassed to have them on their arms. I think that since he knows he's not going to commit long-term to any of them, he doesn't want to go broke buying paper bags for less than "beautiful" girls. To each his own, I guess.

It's no surprise that he'd be dating someone half his age and hot, that's why people want to be movie stars isn't it? The disconnect is in mind and character: the strong women he says he is so comfortable with and the airheads he actually chooses. Strong women are not considered unattractive, Brad and Angie are the definition of the hot couple. George's mom isn't stupid. Where did stupid come from?

I think he is like Johnny Appleseed. Spreading his uhum seed around. He wants to share himself with as many women as possible. Eventually he may even get to those of us here that want hm. Yes, I'm living in a fantasy world. bounce

Don't think there's any uhum seed being spread around. He's probably just watering the roses. Leaves the seed planting to someone else. Remember NO KIDS rule.
