Poor George Clooney is Blindsided by CNN with News of the Jolie-Pitt Split


This is actually kind of messed up. George Clooney is at the United Nations, where he and his wife Amal are speaking out about the Syrian refugee crisis. Amal has volunteered to work on any prosecution of President Bashar Assad for war crimes and the Clooneys have launched an initiative to educate Syrian children in Lebanon. On top of that, Amal is making the case to take ISIS to court for genocide. Warning: This video contains disturbing accounts of sexual assault.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve fallen in love with Amal Clooney.

Speaking outside the UN, CNN’s Richard Roth decided to lob a last question that had nothing to do with the crises: how does Clooney — a longtime friend of Brad Pitt — feel about news of the split? It’s clear that Clooney was blindsided, and you can almost see the wheels turning as he struggles to maintain composure. No worries, though; he handles it with absolute grace.

Poor George looks as devastated as the rest of us felt.




We feel you, George.

Here’s wishing the Clooneys continued safety and peace — Happy World Peace Day — through their efforts.

  • Amal is so amazing. And not for nothing but it does seem that George is super supportive. But what a dick move reporter guy. Like “oh hey how do you feel about your best friend getting divorced? oh did you not know, yes excellent now we get a true reaction”

  • I know people really like to razz George and say that Amal shouldn’t be with him, but I gotta say it says something about the guy that such a remarkable, intelligent, awesome woman chose to marry him. I mean, yeah he looks pretty, but he’s gotta also have something going on upstairs, right?

    Yes, i’m being a bit tongue in cheek, but for real though. He can’t be half-bad if SHE was like “eh, guess I’ll keep ‘im”.

    Still really messed up for that reporter to blindside him like that. Like damn dude, go ahead and put him on the spot for something that’s kinda personal, during an event where that’s the furthest thing from his mind. What, you expected him to run out f there to find his bro and give him a hug? Start crying? Punch you? What was the point of that?
