Nespresso? George, you whore.

      I like his Nespresso commercials, particularly the one that starts w/the woman dressed as a bride. It probably was a hot day and his feet aren’t being filmed, so hey why not wear flip flops? TLO are you just a bit jealous?

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Take a deep breath, fangurl.

        • Joanne Abrams

          LOL, you guys are great!

    • http://fibonaccisequins.storenvy.com/ Danielle

      Hilarious, just like Stamos and his yogurt schilling. The flip-flops are the icing on the cake!

      • imustacheyouaquestion

        i love the stamos one!! ;)

        • demidaemon

          He still makes me swoon in those commercials, so I say flaunt it.

    • MilaXX

      I don’t have a problem with flip flops. I probably wear them more than I should. Why orange?

      • Constant Reader

        Maybe they coordinate with the shorts and t-shirt he’s going to change back into the second he finishes filming?

      • MoHub

        Maybe he got them from Mario Batali.

        • Anna

          HAHAHA, I would have loved it if he’d gone full-on Batali and worn the orange crocs with this.

          • Wink

            Lord, no to Batali’s orange Crocs.

            • Anna

              Or ANY Crocs for that matter!

        • Tlazolteotl

          That comment made my day.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        Allegiance to the Dutch?

        • MilaXX

          ha!

    • Capt. Renault

      Sure, Nespresso. That villa on Lake Como doesn’t pay for itself.

      Well, it *could*, but that would mean taking in bed and breakfasters, and who needs that?

      • Kitten Mittons

        I need that. That’s like a fantasy that writes itself.

        • Kayceed

          Like Fantasy Island, starring Mr. Clooney as Mr. Rourke?

          • Kitten Mittons

            Ha, interesting interpretation. Not quite what I had in mind, but now I kinda like that idea.

          • jen

            Woah. Yes!!

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Which BK is volunteering to stand beside Mr. Clooney and utter “Boss, Boss! De plane!” Me first!

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

              A new BK for each episode so we can all get a turn!

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              A splendid idea-and perhaps we can add opportunities for additional BK’s-certainly George will need turndown service before he goes to bed, assistance laying out his wardrobe, shaving, dressing, undressing…..

      • http://www.adriannagrezak.com Adrianna Grężak

        He was on Actors Studio after The Descendants and The Ides of March. He referenced how people make fun of him for doing the commercials, but it’s how he’s able to finance his projects like Ides of March.

    • SugarSnap108

      I do love the randomness of hawking Nespresso in orange flip-flops.

      • random_poster

        Yes, it seems very whimsical.

      • Columbinia

        I think his justification for his commercial work is that he uses the proceeds for good works in Africa. Still ….

        • lunchcoma

          I’ve actually seen him give a different justification in an actor’s roundtable: he does this kind of thing to make money, isn’t embarrassed about it, and in turn doesn’t have to do “one for them and one for him” rotations of his movies in able to live the way he wants to. Clooney’s not my favorite, but I appreciated the honesty and the pragmatism.

    • Anna

      His pedicure was drying in between takes.

    • Gatto Nero

      He needs the money.

    • fananafanafophalec

      Trying to convince myself it’s some nonsense invented by an advertising exec. failing miserably. also that jacket has the somewhat miraculous ability to look both too small when open and too large when closed

    • Jean Genetic

      Uh, forget the feet, did you notice his trousers?

      • colleenjanel

        HELLO!

      • czarina

        Cool down…he probably stuffed some of those Nespresso coffee pods down his pants like a good little Nespresso Whore.

        He is going to marry an attorney, and I wish them all the best, but you have to wonder if the Nespresso residuals are included of the pre-nup!

      • conniemd

        First thing I noticed was that he was packed and definitely dressed on the left.

    • James

      I am so sorry but my eyes are fixed, ahem, on that middle bit … that’s not really a bit …

    • NMMagpie

      Give the guy a break… he’s got a wedding to pay for.

    • marlie

      Amusing as hell, but he still looks good – from the ankles up.

    • RescueMe23

      What flip flops? I never scrolled past his man pants…

    • Jen

      Is he contracted to coffee suppliers for life?

    • decormaven

      The last shot- whistling all the way to the bank. Such a rough life!

    • Kristen

      Anyone who’s anyone wears orange rubber flip flops with his suit.

    • dmkava

      I’ve never understood why a celebrity of Clooney’s magnitude needs to shill for a coffee maker. 1) how much money is enough-do you really need more 2) Overexposure-isn’t it a risk?

      • BlairBear

        Because celebrities like making money and he probably makes a million dollars a minute for working on this commercial. Also I think he is pretty much immune to overexposure.

        • marlie

          Seriously, this ad is probably half a day’s work? $$$

        • dmkava

          not sure his recent box office numbers reflect that immunity-besides Gravity, which let’s face it was about the technical wonder more than the actors, he hasn’t had a project break $100 million domestic since Ocean’s 13.

          • BlairBear

            He is still in a position well above most other celebrities. Also the salaries celebrities make aren’t directly tied to the amount of money their movies gross (some of the highest paid stars aren’t worth the money for studios to hire). Besides, hasn’t he diversified into directing and other project besides acting. I think barring a Mel Gibson/Charlie Sheen style meltdown he is guaranteed status for the rest of his life.

            • dmkava

              I don’t care what salary he makes for a film, he is no longer a box office force-and that most certainly matters in Hollywood

            • BlairBear

              I respectfully disagre that he isnt a box office force.

      • marlie

        Seems like a lot of A-listers do commercials overseas. I seem to recall diCaprio doing commercials in Japan in recent years.

        • decormaven

          It’s a very viable revenue stream. The money is there, and it promotes an actor’s “face” in several markets, so it is pretty much a no-brainer from a business point of view. I like to think that the extra $$ earned go toward philanthropic pursuits, but it’s probably more toward “stoking the star-making machinery,” as Joni Mitchell coined it.

          • marlie

            Oh, I agree. I have no problem with it whatsoever, and it’s definitely a smart business move. I also know that Clooney puts his money where his mouth is regarding philanthropic actions.

          • dmkava

            his “face” is already extremely well known, especially in the Italian market, since he owns a house on Lake Como. You could say this is smart, or you could say it cheapens his “brand” At some point this kind of thing could take the luster off of any star, no matter how big

          • conniemd

            Charlize Theron did those Dior fragrance commercials. She looked amazing. I didn’t think it lowered her status to shill for a product. Their lives are all about that, be it pole dances or carrying Louis Vitton bags around the parking lots.

      • Jose Bejarano

        You should take some time and read about what he does with his Nespresso money.

        • dmkava

          from Clooney himself “I’m trying to make movies in my life, and particularly in the position I’m in, that last longer than opening weekend. That’s it, that’s my whole goal. I don’t have to make money, I do films for scale and then you know, I go do coffee commercials overseas and I make a lot of money doing those, so I get to live in a nice house.”
          So, which is it-this or the satellite spy thing?

          • lunchcoma

            That made a lot of sense to me when he said it. Making coffee commercials that no one in his primary commercial market sees takes maybe a day or two out of his year. Doing a movie he’s not excited about to make money would take three or four months. If I had his extremely fortunate set of choices, I might pick the former too and only do movie projects I liked.

      • Abbey Rogue

        It’s like Bill Murray in Lost in Translation. Lots of A-listers do advertisements for things that are in overseas-only markets (I remember reading something about it around when Lost in Translation came out).

      • cocohall

        It’s interesting, he does a fair bit of voice work for the domestic market (as do other celebrities) but keeps his mug off screen except for the foreign markets. I’ve heard his voice, Julia’s, Matt Damon’s, Demi Moore’s and Sam Elliott’s just to name a few. I saw a movie on Netflix about character actors and how hard it is to find work that pays the bills. They did an actual breakdown of where the money goes after an actor gets paid and the number of mouths in the food chain before the actor ever sees a dime: agents, managers, PR people, lawyers, etc etc. Not that Clooney has to bag groceries at the Piggly Wiggly to make ends meet, but I’m sure to keep up his house in Italy, and deal with security headaches, he needs to keep up the revenue stream.

        Lately I saw a tourism commercial for some beachy locale and I SWEAR it was Sarah Ferguson (she who whored out access to her ex-husband Prince Andy and was caught on tape) doing the voice over. She has an interesting voice and I can imagine it would be one of the better options for her that did not involve actual, ahem, work.

        • dmkava

          do you remember the name of the film? it sounds really interesting.I’m sure it must be really hard now what with the studios cutting down on their major releases and that superhero crap out now.

    • Freynika

      Is this actually going to air in the United States? A lot of bigger name celebrities do overseas commercials, apparently.

    • PastryGoddess

      The soundtrack for this ad is “Anaconda”

    • Synnae

      He’s be doing Nespresso commercials for ages here in Europe, and I have to give him and the product credit for the commercials being a complete send up of George and his image.

    • Wink

      Hard to believe he is the same guy who played Booker on Roseanne. You’ve come a long way, baby.

    • Tina M.

      AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH this might be the day where you and I must part, George

    • PinkyK

      Orange flip flops!?! The horror! The horror!

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      Most HILARIOUS scrolldown.

    • RedRaven617

      How much money does he make to do this? Isn’t he a superstar? But coffee? I’m curious.

    • Paula Pertile

      I have an irrational loathing of flip flops. And orange. Can’t unsee this.

    • teensmom99

      Clooney is so gorgeous that he could make me think that men should start wearing orange flip flops with their suits.

    • cmb92191

      They look like the cheapwalk out of the salon pedi flip flops

    • paintedfish

      I wanna see more of “coral pants” outfit in the background.

    • SCK1980

      I want to see the numbers on how many hits you get on the site from “George Clooney Feet”

    • Glam Dixie

      I just want a full shot of that long tall drink of water behind him. Move aside Clooney.

    • crash1212

      One assumes this commercial only took in the upper half of Mr. Clooney. Also, those orange pants in the background of #3 and #4 are giving me life. Maybe he matched his flip flops to her pants…perhaps that’s part of the commercial. Guess we won’t know unless we go to Italy.

    • Kate4queen

      I just like looking at George so thank you for that!

    • LeelaST

      What flip-flops? He’s clean-shaven, I might just faint from delight!

    • Akemi

      Oh, scroll down fug.

    • shopgirl716

      Got a wedding and a big ole ring to pay for.

    • somebody blonde

      UGH WHY

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      Those pants are certainly, ahem, well fitted.

    • Denise Rambo

      I don’t mind my George wearing flip-flops but not Mario Batali orange ones.

    • J.W.

      Maybe he owns a strong portion of Nespresso ;)

    • Miss wks

      I LOVE the slippahs!….

    • SophieB210

      He’s channeling Idris Elba, only without the trouser snake. Sadly.

    • Columbinia

      This makes me think of the stories about Greta Garbo wearing bedroom slippers on movie sets under her grand gowns. If the shot wasn’t full length, she made herself comfortable.

    • Mars Tokyo

      Even his feet look good!

    • Nicole

      That woman staring out between random legs is stunning.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Dear gracious me, but that man is aging gorgeously…although I cannot endorse orange flipflops. George, my sweet, we must talk.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Aw, he went for the “pop of color”. I love these pictures, he looks ridiculous and debonair all at the same time. I certainly enjoy looking at him a lot more than I enjoy looking at that sloppy Hemsworth fellow. So thanks for the variety in this sausage shoppe.

    • mommyca

      Looking more and more like Cary Grant… Are the orange flip flops for the commercial? I guess we won’t see it here in the US.

    • MartyBellerMask

      That tan looks ridic.

    • DeidreRobbers

      They’ve been running Clooney Nespresso commercials here in Saudi for about 2 years now. We get all the good celebrity whores. :)

    • Corsetmaker

      Yeah been getting his nespresso ads for a while. I like that’s he happy to take the piss out of himself in them. THe flip flops – who knows, might even be part of the ad :/

    • bluefish

      Michael Clayton! Love that movie and love George. Love too that classic, bureaucrat suit–great shirt also. There’s something timeless about him that both excites and comforts. And I don’t think I have ever seen orange flip-flops before. Like the combo of colors. And yeah to the beautiful woman shot between the legs. Wonder if she’s real.

    • LibKat

      Destroying his low-rent-Cary-Grant street cred in those horrible flip-flops.

    • CT14

      That suit fits!

      WHY, GEORGE? WHY?

    • demidaemon

      As someone who hates feet, I can admit he has nice feet. However, I am more attracted to the extra behind him (the dude, of course!).

    • Qitkat

      I am irrationally amused that he is wearing orange flip flops. We called them zoris when I was a kid (I think that’s the Japanese word), and I got used to wearing them a lot in Florida. But as an adult, I can’t stand any shoes with the strap between my toes. So my thought process was, does he really feel comfortable wearing them, or is it just acting?

    • Therese Bohn

      I rarely watch commercials, but I might pause the DVR for this one, once.

    • psychoblonde

      A whore indeed, but he’s my favorite cappacino whore ;)

      You guys are the best.

    • KT

      Apparently the nespresso is waking all sorts of things up… (I’m pretending he actually drinks that crap)

    • guest2visits

      Somehow making flipflops look good.
      I’m not able to wear them, I just can’t get them to stay on my feet. And I’ve gotten very irritable about people that wear them 24/7.

    • mdcoon127

      He could wear anything that well groomed…he is a god.

    • webslice33

      he is a great dresser, very classic
