George Clooney in Paris

Posted on July 17, 2013

Hi, George!


George Clooney heads to the Nespresso store in Paris, France, after having lunch at Ledoyen restaurant.

This is what it’s like when George heads to the Nespresso store. The clouds part, doves fly overhead (no, really; check it), and huge masses of people suddenly appear, weeping and shouting. You should see what it’s like when he walks into a car dealership. Unicorns. Seriously.

Okay, you’ll have to pardon us if we find the wire service caption here a little suspect, since there are apparently crowds lining the street outside the Nespresso store, just waiting for someone famous to show up. Either way, George looks pretty good here, which means he’s probably taking interviews for the next Not-Mrs. George, since the last one was cut loose and set out to sea.

      Hilarious. I think that’s a pigeon, tho, not a dove. :-)

      • Karen Belgrad

        Bite your tongue… It’s just a dirty dove. It didn’t have time to bathe before the photocall…er… shopping excursion.

        • Kiltdntiltd

          Because, of course a stylish gent like George wears a suit, and takes his people with him when he needs to stock up on Nespresso coffee pods.

          • visceral response

            Well, the last time I saw George (With around 500 other people at a random screening and I never got within 20 feet of him, but it counts DAMMIT.) he was dressed like that then, too.

            He’s probably still paying penance for all those pastel shirts he wore on Facts of Life.

            • Kate Andrews

              He is so handsome. Also, and this is nuts, but I was worried we were going to have a Fabio incident. But no, because pigeons too love George.

          • Lucía Gavello

            I expect George to wear suits at all times, except on a yacht… although a summer suit would be welcome then too. I mean, we need him to balance out all the boystars with neckbeards, washed out jeans and worn out boots.

      • Mrs. Julien

        Pigeons and doves are the same species. Potato/potahto.

        • Lucía Gavello

          We have one word for both in Spanish “paloma”, so I agree ;)

      • kim bunchalastnames

        well, technically, pigeons ARE doves. well, they’re both in the same clade, columbidea. so it still works.


        • kim bunchalastnames

          p.s. thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to use the word “clade” in a sentence, as if it’s the sort of thing that rolls trippingly off my tongue, or fumblely off my fingers, any old time.

      • VioletFlame

        Technically they’re the same. Pigeons aka Rock doves to some poetic souls.

    • Karen Belgrad

      Is there a place on CareerBuilder where one can apply to be the next Not-Mrs. George?

      • gabbilevy

        Since he’s not aging, apparently, maybe the job will be open again in 15 years or so when I pass into the acceptable age range for Not-Mrs. George.

        • Karen Belgrad

          Maybe he’s the new Menudo!!!! (aka kicks ‘em to the curb when the hit a certain age)

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        All even accept an unpaid internship at that position.

      • housefulofboys

        I’ll apply! I don’t think my hubby would mind my taking a couple of years off. Unfortunately, though, I’m George’s age, which means I’m WAY TOO OLD and wouldn’t even make the first cut. Sigh.

      • marlie

        I’d have NO problem being the next Not-Mrs. George for the next year or two.

      • YoungSally

        Just make sure you include – no interest in kids – in the skills/interest part.

        • Betsy

          Nor marriage.
          Nor engagement.
          Nor anything leading up to either of the above.

          • YoungSally

            Agreed — although I will have to say in my contract with George there will be a “just in case Hugh Jackman becomes available…for anything” clause.

    • d4divine

      Hahaha…”set out to sea” that’s a good one

    • NBG

      Points for the lay of the shirt collar but the shirt is unbuttoned one button too many. Getting too close to Hasselhoff territory there, George. Redo that button and we’ll pretend it never happened.

      The hair and skin look great.

      • Annarosa

        though, he does nothing for me.

        • Tatiana Luján

          He does nothing for me either, never has.

        • lexilexi

          Couldn’t agree with you more. I like my men a little dirtier… he’s just too too squeaky clean, even with that teeny tiny stubble.

      • veleri

        “Getting too close to Hasselhoff territory” thank you for saying this.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      I almost expected him to be kissing babies based on these pictures. Looks like a lost Kennedy son walking a rope line during a campaign.

      • quiltrx

        He’s so charismatic, I’m sure if he ever does run for an office he’d win in a landslide.

    • annabelle archer

      Get out my head TLo – I was looking at the pics and thinking, he must be taking applications and maybe even holding interviews for the recently vacated position. I tell you what, if I were remotely “qualified” I’d submit my resume. That’s not a bad gig to have for a year or two. Not bad at all.

      • veleri

        yeah, that is surely a good way to boost your resume for future applications!

    • VeryClaire

      He’s never really been my thing but the man does have a really nice smile.

    • lizlemonglasses

      < volunteer

    • Glam Dixie

      Perhaps it is a Nespresso store opening? Just a thought. Or perhaps the whole caption is wrong altogether. Also, George, do up one more button, mmmkay?

    • almondemy

      Does this mean no more Stacy Keibler posts? She felt like a most personable Blake Lively.

      • annabelle archer

        That is the mystery that remains to be seen….Can she parlay this investment of time into bigger and better gigs?

        • almondemy

          I sure hope so. At least let her be, like, a new Red Sonja or some other action movie heroine that requires little acting talent, but much athletic prowess.

        • RebeccaKW

          I don’t know about acting, but I think she’s coming out with a line of children’s healthy food, to fight childhood obesity.

          • VeryClaire

            What, there isn’t healthy food available to children now? There needs to be a LINE? That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.

            • RebeccaKW

              From what I understand, it’s a snack line. So, instead of parents buying a bag of Oreos, they would buy a bag of…whatever she’s selling. Low calorie, low or no sugar, etc.

              I’m not saying kids shouldn’t eat healthy, but most celebrity lines of anything are expensive. And a lot of the children with obesity problems come from low-income homes.

          • veleri

            I heard she is promoting her new cooking show

            • demidaemon

              Yes. She’s hosting a new reality show on Lifetime about people trying to get their products into supermarkets. They have to compete against each other and face a panel of judges, including Miss Kiebler. I watch way too much E! News, it seems.

              Whether it will be worth watching or not is the question you have to answer for yourself.

        • flamingoNW

          I think that was part of the 2 year contract

      • imakeart

        She’s all ready done the dancing w/ the stars thing, so she has to find other things to occupy her time.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I love that it is a huge, photographed, entouraged endeavour when a celebrity picks up coffee capsules. I hope we still see Stacy Keibler around – she always looks so pretty. George always looks pretty too.

      • travelgirl28

        I believe George is a spokesperson for the Nespresso brand in Europe so I would assume he’s making an appearance for them, not just picking up coffee capsules for himself. :)

        • ashtangajunkie

          Ah. Either way, I’m just happy to see him. :)

    • Heather

      In the second photo he appears to be saying, “hey! check out my man-icure!”

    • queen b*tch

      What a charmer! I love the shot where he’s about to shake a mere mortals hand.

      The other half and I have been re-watching ER over the last couple of years (We’re up to season 12 out of 15!) Clooney looks as good now as he did then!

      • LambeeBaby

        maybe better. I’m diggin. the silver fox.

    • PointTaken

      He does add for Nespresso abroad, so it’s no doubt a promotional event.

      • Joanne Abrams

        Those European Nespresso ads he is in are HOT!!

    • GorgeousThings

      That’s no dove. It’s a Parisian rat-with-wings pigeon.

      Still, George. Le sigh now that he’s lost the mountain man beard.

    • Sheneve Butler

      LOL, I was just reading about George Clooney’s break up with Stacy Keibler. He looks good, I like his simple suit. Hopefully his next Not-Mrs. George is Eva Longoria that would be change from the usual.

      • flamingoNW

        Eva has got a new millionaire boyfriend, so probably not

    • decormaven

      Goody! The nice suit almost wipes the rememberance of Grandpa jeans from my memory. Looking forward to the debut of the next flavor of arm candy.

    • stubbornthoughts

      How did I not know George and Stacy split? DAMMIT WORK.

      As for George, he’s such a movie star – and I swoon.

    • nannypoo

      Send me the contract. I’ll sign.

    • Cathy S

      Good lord, he’s good looking.

    • Joanna Carver

      How am I not supposed to click on something called, “George Clooney in Paris”?

      • majorbedhead

        I would watch that film.

    • SusiePamudji

      And he looks so happy to see people. Sigh and swoon.

    • Gus Casals

      George is a Nesspresso spokeperson for the whole world but the US

    • flamingoNW

      I’m sure it was way more staged, I agree. However, I was surprised to see how fast a pretty substantial crowd gathered when word got out that Steven Spielberg was shopping in this Soho store when I was in NYC.

    • Miss WKS

      From the title I thought you meant he was dating Ms. Hilton….

    • majorbedhead

      *siiiiiiiigh* Happy now.

    • marlie

      HI George! His pants are too big and too long, but who cares; it’s Intern George on a coffee run!

      I love the silver/grey hair. LOVE.

      • BKagainwiththesweatpants

        omg, how COULD I have forgotten about those 2 magical words: Intern George. Thank you for the reminder, Marlie! We have interns here at Sweatpants HQ, but not one has the savoir faire, nay, the bonhomie, of Intern George. And certainly not his global coffee connections. His delightful smile cheers me so! Stacy who?

    • Beth513

      I’m already married so I’d make an excellent not Mrs George

    • MilaXX

      The last model was on morning tv pimping her new reality food show

    • Avray

      You are not even wrong about the crowds just waiting for someone to show up. I *may* have done this, or I could just have been waiting for a bus very close by. If that is the Champs Elysees, I have seen many, many more than that for buskers, and not particularly good ones at that. . Indeed, even without a random crowd waiting for who knows what the Nespresso store has ‘manufacture a line’ policy where there are people waiting all the way into the street.

      Yes, the world is a crazy place.

    • JauntyJohn

      He is one of the true, old world style Movie Stars.

    • imakeart

      He is our generation’s Cary Grant. {bats eyelashes)

      • alyce1213

        With maybe a dash of Clark Gable? (George is a little more butch than the exquisite Cary Grant.)

        • imakeart

          True – it’s just Clark Gable never did much for me.

    • LaSylphide

      I dunno. Between George Clooney and Idris Elba … my hot flashes are having hot flashes.

    • formerlyAnon

      These pictures are hilarious. It’s like the Pope stopping for coffee. (The hand in the first photo is blessing, not waving. I’m convinced.)

    • EdithP

      Thank goodness he’s clean shaven! I just wish he looked a little less like my real life Uncle George.

    • Anniebet

      Casual, comfy, classic. He’s never floated my boat, but I can appreciate the appeal. It’s kinda cute that his bodyguards are better dressed than he is.

    • Dawn Sinclair

      I like him, but I REALLY wish he didn’t advertise for Nestle

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      He looks ridiculously good here.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      just another good ol’ kentucky boy.

    • MzzPants

      He looks like he’s running for office.

    • lilyvonschtupp

      Ah, George is like an Armani suit…he never goes out of style *swoon*
