George Clooney

George Timothy Clooney was born on May 6, 1961, in Lexington, Kentucky, to Nina Bruce (Warren), a former beauty queen, and Nick Clooney, a former anchorman and game show host. Clooney is also the nephew of noted singer Rosemary Clooney. He was very active in sports at Augusta High School, and even tried out for the Cincinatti Reds. Clooney's first role was in a sitcom called ER, which is particularly funny give that he would rocket to fame on the drama series ER 10 years later. ER led to movie roles for Clooney, ranging from the horror movie From Dusk ‘Til Dawn to a turn as Batman in Batman & Robin (arguably the worst Batman movie ever made). After critics panned his performance as Batman, Clooney started taking better roles in movies like The Thin Red Line, Out of Sight and Three Kings. He's found success both in front of and behind the camera, standing as the only person to net Academy Award nominations in six categories. Clooney has won two Academy Awards, one for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Syriana and one for Best Picture as one of the producers for Argo. He was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 until 1993, swearing after their divorce he'd never marry again. After dating a long list of beautiful women for two decades, Clooney broke that vow in 2014, marrying human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in 2014. He has no children.
