Me and George Clooney
My Facebook profile photo is the wee snap of me and the sexy George Clooney. You can go check it if you so desire, just type my name into Facebook search and you will clock me and the delicious man himself.
Now, loads of people have contacted me by email and asked me about the star crossed meeting of me and Mr Clooney or ‘Geordie-Boy’ as I like to call him!
It was at the BAFTA film awards in 2006 and I spotted him in my peripheral vision as he walking alongside me.
We were almost walking side by side as we both headed to the toilets. People were staring, taking photos and generally pointing and some sexy women even practically ‘presented’ to him.
I quickened my pace to get in front of him and out of the way so people staring didn’t have to suffer the wee Scottish woman in their much beloved photos. Just at that moment he quickened his pace as he probably need a pee. He ended up right beside me again and I was like a wee Geisha in high heels as well trying to totter off at speed.
He caught up beside me and I smiled, turned to him and said “Stop flirting with me George Clooney, you have been doing it all night”
He burst out laughing, a nice genuine laugh as he took the cheeky joke on board, he reached over and took my arm as if he was escorting me to the loos. That made me like him, as he could have balked and huffed off.
“Nice accent” he spoke quietly as he smiled and acknowledged the people he encountered on our way to the loo. It was now within sight, we both walked quicker, people cleared a path for us.
“I loved your movie Good night and Good Luck” I said.
“Thank you, what do you do?” he stopped in the doorway of the toilets.
We were now surrounded by make up artists who were giving women and men a free make up thingy, that I didn’t quite understand.
“I am a comedian” I answered as the ladies from MAC cosmetics gasped and pointed at George.
“Really? Like live stand up?” he asked as a woman started taking photo’s on her phone.
“Listen I really need to go to the loo” he interrupted himself.
“Do you need any help in there?” I giggled.
He laughed heartily and cheekily offered me to come into the gent’s toilet and the MAC cosmetic ladies all shrieked and clapped. He held the toilet door open and said “I dare you”
“I have seen a penis before” I shouted with laughter and headed off to the ladies next door to the gents.
We both came out of the loos at the same time. The MAC cosmetic girls were huddled round him and taking photos. George came over chatted a bit about comedy then the cosmetic girl offered to take our photo, George agreed and she took my phone. The reason I am pointing in the photo is that I was trying to point out where the fucking button was on the phone “fucking hell you mad bitch how hard is it to work the camera on a phone” I screeched and George kept laughing at me swearing at the dumbass heavily made up girl.
So that’s why I look aggressively mad in the pic and he looks laid back and happy.
He told me he liked women that swore in Scottish and asked me to say “fucking hell ya mad bitch” again, just so he could laugh again.
He kissed my cheek, held my hand tightly, then said “Good Night and Good Luck Janey” and headed off._
