George Clooney was rushed to the hospital recently after he presented with serious symptoms.
Now we know exactly what caused the actual health scare.
Read on below for further details…
Mr. Clooney isn’t just all charm and good looks.
George Clooney one of the world’s best actors was born in Lexington, Kentucky.
His cousin introduced him to acting.
Clooney’s close cousin landed him a small role in a feature film which made him eager to pursue a career in film.
George Clooney is a popular household name over the last few years.
He has an impressive track record of notorious work including From Dusk Till Dawn, Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen, and Syriana.
Clooney is also renowned for his charity work.
He founded an organisation that aims to stop the genocide in Sudan with Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt, and producer Jerry Weintraub.
His charity has donated millions of dollars to help those suffering.
A lot of his funds goes through the United Nations World Food Programme.
Rande Gerber, Cloone’s long time friend was invited over for dinner one night only to be surprised with this massive gift…
Suitcases each filled with a million dollars.
This was such an extravagant gesture.
Clooney set the record straight.
The actor explained the story of that now-famous gift giving actually occurred.
Clooney explained how the gesture happened.
The movie was a “very good deal” for him, because he was paid based on percentages of box-office revenue.
Amal, his wife had no immediate family who relied on his income.
He wanted to give a little back to those closest to him. He explained:
“And I thought, what I do have are these guys who’ve all, over a period of thirty-five-years, helped me in one way or another.”
Clooney chose fourteen of his “closest friends” before his fame and success.
He went on to elaborate:
“I’ve slept on their couches when I was broke. They loaned me money when I was broke. They helped me when I needed help over the years. And I’ve helped them over the years.”
Certain people were all already mentioned in his will…
“We’re all good friends, and I thought, you know, without them, I don’t have any of this. And we’re all really close, and I just thought basically if I get hit by a bus, they’re all in the will. So why the f*** am I waiting to get hit by a bus?”
He then needed to figure out how to get $14 million suitcase of cash all at once.
Apparently Clooney’s research led him to “an undisclosed location” in Los Angeles where pallets of cash are held for sale.
“So Clooney got an old beat-up van that said ‘Florist’ on it, like he was in a heist movie, and he drove downtown, and he got in an elevator with the florist’s van, and he took the van down to the vault and loaded it up with cash,” reporter Zach Baron wrote in the profile.
Adding, “He told no one but his assistant ‘and a couple of security guys that were s****ing themselves.’”
At the dinner party…
Clooney gave a heartwarming speech about how much they had meant to him and said he wanted to give back, before presenting them with the suitcases.
“We open it up, and it’s $1 million in $20 bills,” Gerber told MSNBC. “Every one of us – fourteen of us – got a million dollars. Every single one of us. We were in shock. Like, ‘What is this?’”
Clooney has a huge fan base as he is a well-rounded man both on and off-screen.
He was given terrible news recently.
The actor was rushed to hospital following serious health concerns.
Once the news was revealed messages of support poured in for him.
The reason for this outcome?
This all began while he was preparing for his latest role in The Midnight Sky.
He is the type of actor who takes his roles very serious.
In order to prepare for his role in Augustine, Clooney went to extreme lengths to portray the role as accurately as possible.
George went on a really extreme diet…
That had a devastating effects on his overall health.
His weight had dropped by twenty-eight pounds within a number of weeks.
He was also doubled over with stomach pains and felt dizzy a lot of the time.
“I think I was trying too hard to lose the weight quickly and probably wasn’t taking care of myself,” he explained.
George discovered at a later stage the intense pain was in fact pancreatitis…
Which is a serious inflammation of the pancreas.
Clooney was discharged from hospital after a few days however the recovery process took “a few weeks.”
He expaiend how this affected his preparation…
“We were out on this glacier in Finland, which made it a lot harder work. But it certainly helped with the character.”
Luckily he had some time to re-cooperate as a result of the pandemic which slowed down production.
