George Clooney dazzles hometown crowd


clooney2.jpgIt’s rare that anyone gets a hometown parade in their honor and even more rare that a person gets a hometown movie premiere — unless that person is George Clooney.

Monday night Clooney was in Maysville, Kentucky where his family hails from — his great grandfather was the mayor – for a special screening of his new football movie, “Leatherheads,” and Clooney told Reuters on Tuesday that he had a great time. He even saw the gal he took to his sophomore prom.

“You know you do a (Hollywood) premiere and everybody’s real cool. But these clooney3.jpgguys were all dressed up  and they were so excited. It was a real old-fashioned premiere. Everybody was lit up and having fun. I got onstage and introduced my dad and everyone cheered.”

That’s his dad, Nick, in the picture at the left, straightening George’s crooked tie.clooney5.jpg
