George Clooney Jokes About Divorce Report: “We Gave It A Good Run!” (VIDEO)
George Clooney has a sense of humor about a recent tabloid cover story that falsely claimed he and Amal are on the brink of divorce, joking to “Entertainment Tonight” on Thursday, “We gave it a good run!” See the video below.
The actor continues to be astonished that people believe the made-up rumors, including the fake story that he got a Porsche for his birthday. He said “Isn’t that crazy? So now, who do you think started it? Do you think Porsche started that rumor?” Clooney added, “It’s every other day some other story. I think I’m on the cover of a magazine, Amal and I are fighting and getting divorced.” “When asked by the TV show, “Already?” Clooney quipped, “Well, we tried! We gave it a good run!”
Gossip Cop was first to exclusively correct the Life & Style cover story Clooney was referencing. A rep for the actor told us earlier this week that the tabloid’s claim about Clooney and his wife allegedly being on the brink of a “nasty $200 million divorce” was “all made up.”
In addition to laughing off the latest false reports, Clooney gushed about his love for his wife and her work as a human rights lawyer. “I’m always very proud of her when I see her speaking at the International Court of Appeals in Strasbourg, you know, with her robe on. It’s very impressive!” he said. “She’s an amazing human being and she’s caring ,and she also happens to be one of the smartest people I’ve ever met. And she’s got a great sense of humor.” Watch the video below of George Clooney joking about tabloid rumors, and tell us what you think of his comments.
