It was recently reported that George Clooney was rushed to hospital after he started to present some serious symptoms. It was kept a secret, but now we can say what his health scare was all about.
We all know Clooney for being one of the most charming and handsome actors in Hollywood.
Born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, he has grown to be one of the most famous actors today. His cousin was the reason he began his career early in his life.
When Clooney was young, his cousin got him a role in a feature film, and after that experience, Clooney was hooked and wanted to pursue a career in TV and film. Fast forward to today, he is one of the biggest names in Hollywood.
He has starred in numerous blockbusters and movies we all have enjoyed and loved, such as ‘From Dusk Till Dawn,’ ‘Ocean’s Twelve,’ ‘Ocean’s Thirteen,’ and ‘Syriana.’ Clooney also is known for his charity work.
Clooney, the producer of ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ and co-start such as Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Don Cheadle, founded ‘Not On Our Watch,’ and the organization aiming to stop the genocide in Sudan. The organization has donated millions of dollars to try to help out people in that region.
The charity is working closely with the United Nations World Food Programme, helping out million in Sudan.
Who can forget when it was reported that Clooney invited some of his close friends for dinner, and he had a surprise waiting for them. It was reported that Clooney had suitcases filled with a million dollars and gave them to his friends.
Many people were a bit skeptical about the news, so Clooney himself, came out to set the record straight.
He did an interview where he told the whole story about the dinner and the suitcases, and it turns out everything was true. The surprise happened before the premiere of ‘Gravity,’ back in 2013.
He said that the movie was a pretty good deal for him because he was being paid a percentage of the box-office revenue. At that time, he wasn’t dating his current wife, Amal, so his income wasn’t affecting his family that much.
He wanted to give back to the people closest to him. He said that because for more than 30 years, his close friends have been there for him and have helped him numerous times, he wanted to give back to them. It has been said that fourteen close friends were invited to that famous dinner party.
He added that they were there when he was broke, to loan him some money, to have a place to stay, and over the years, they have supported his dream of becoming who he is today. He even said that they were already in his will.
He said that everything he has today is because of the amazing friends he had by his side. He thought, why wait and just gave them something they will appreciate. The idea of suitcases filled with money came up, but the hard part was getting 14 million dollars in cash.
It was reported that Clooney needed to get a van to transport all the money back to his home and then place it in the suitcases. Only one of his assistants and a couple of security guards knew what he was doing. Then the day came where Clooney would surprise his friends at his dinner party.
He first stood up, gave a speech about how every single one of his 14 close friends has done so much for him that he wanted to give something back to them. When his friends started to open the suitcases, they were shocked to see a million dollars in 20 dollar-bills in their suitcases.
This is just one of many examples that you can read about Clooney, which will tell you how generous and well-rounded of a man he is. However, many fans worldwide were hit with some bad news about Clooney recently.
Clooney was taken to the hospital after showing some health concerns. The minute the news went public, people on social media started to post their good wishes.
At first, no one knew what the problem was.
Everything began while he was preparing for his role in the movie ‘The Midnight Sky.’ It is well known that Clooney takes all of his roles seriously.
Because his character, Augustine, was a man that was battling advanced cancer, he wanted to portray the role as accurately and genuinely as he could. An extreme diet was the first step.
In just a few weeks in the diet, Clooney dropped close to 40 pounds. Losing that amount of weight that quickly can have serious effects on your health.
It was reported that he had stomach pain all the time, and he felt dizzy on occasions.
He even came out and said that he went too far with the diet and wasn’t paying attention to his health. He found out that the pain he was experiencing was caused by pancreatitis.
He had to go to the hospital for a couple of days, and when he was released, he was in recovery for a couple of weeks more. He was angry that the recovery process affected his preparation for the movie.
Filming was harder, and he had problems here and there, but he also added it helped portray the character more. The movie production was cut a bit short at the time because the pandemic hit the world. Nevertheless, ‘The Midnight Sky’ will premiere on Netflix and other streaming services on the 23rd of December.
