A Visit With George Clooney: Welcome, Come on in. A new show out called Person To Person aired. The hosts were Charlie Rose and Lara Logan. They featured a visit with George Clooney at his home. What a great first guest! George’s home is in Studio City which he explained was initially part of Universal Studios, but they downsized and homes were built on the vacant land. Cool to know George! Above is one of the first shots of the inside of his home where he has lived for almost 20 years as he bought the home in the early 90s.
I love this leaded glass door he has. George Clooney won a Golden Globe this year and is up for two Academy Awards, airing on February 26th, for The Descendants and Ides of March. I have not seen either of them yet, but I better get to it!
As the camera was panning around I noticed that George has a lot of books around his home including this office area.
George Clooney said “Come on into the kitchen.” He said it like he was talking to all of us; I like that about him.
The host’s asked George what he had in his refrigerator. Love this refrigerator with glass doors.
George said he made a New Year’s resolution to eat better and has someone who drops off salads for him to eat. So there is not much in his refrig, but he no doubt inspired many to start to eat better too.
A look from the kitchen into the dining room. They asked George what a house means to him and he said “A house is where you live and a home is the place family and friends are part of.” I liked that answer.
A cozy basketball court for friends and family to come over and play. Got to have play time.
He was walking around with that cup and my brain said it was coffee, so I had to stop and make some too before I continued on. He joked with the host that it was Vodka. He got the Kennedy memorabilia framed on the wall from hearing about someone clearing out their garage; you just never know what you are going to find in someones garage.
More books as he moves into another room, plus all the books on the table in the background.
His bar. One thing about George Clooney is that he has maintained friendships he made 30 years ago when he first arrived in Los Angeles from Kentucky.
He explains that the lower picture is of the original rat pack and the photographer who took that picture retook the Oceans Eleven crew standing in the same positions.
Cozy family room with orange chairs that are a standout.
Stepping outside of family room to deck area.
Bar with pool in background.
Extensive wine collection built into stone walls.
His screening room complete with popcorn maker. George says he loves watching movies, and likes the movie industry, stating that it is an exciting business to be a part of. He says that this is a good time in his life and he has a great appreciation for the fact that he has caught the brass ring, but understands it is temporary.
George Clooney’s dog’s name is Einstein and he got him at a rescue.
My dog’s name is Anya and she would love a play date with Einstein. How about it George?
