That’s right, add Mr. Clooney to the list of beautiful people from the South. Bet ya didn’t know that George Clooney was born and raised in Kentucky. My hometown, as a matter of fact, Lexington.
Stories fly around Kentucky family of sightings and though Mr. Clooney is just as at home now in Los Angeles or Italy, or serving as humanitarian in Haiti or Darfur, this actor/director/writer got his start in Fort Mitchell and Augusta. (I’m sure you all recognize the lovely stylings of his aunt as well, Rosemary Clooney.) A true Southern boy, he enjoyed sports, playing baseball and basketball, and even had early jobs in cutting tobacco.
Of course, now we all know him as doctor, escaped convict, pilot, casino schemer, Special Forces operator, and jilted dad. This Oscar-winning sexy-man is just a little more proof that we really know how to raise ’em in the South.
