An Open Letter to George Clooney
Mr Clooney George,
First of all ,my good friend Kathy and I would like to thank you for continuing to make movies. Although I am not even close to being an expert, we've seen most all of your films and count ourselves as two of the three people who paid for a ticket and saw 'The American'. Granted, the reviews weren't all that great but hey, you looked good and isn't that what it's all about? Seriously though, you were looking pretty rough in 'Syriana' but we got it and were transfixed in our seats (hope your back is better). 'Burn After Reading'? Different, yes. Entertaining? You bet. By the way, your comment about being "The AARP's Sexiest Man Still Alive" recently was priceless.
Anyway, by now now you must be wondering why I'm writing to you.
This week we saw "The Ides of March". Loved it. Our question is...was Stephen about to "blow the whistle" or was it going to be just another interview? Of course, with all the background rhetoric about integrity etc. I think he was going to spill his guts. Or was his blank stare reflective of his numbness to all things political? We saw that you were one of the films screenwriters so we are going to the source and would love to hear from you, of course.
Between boating in the Mediterranean, attending black tie events (gotta say, we love ya in black tie), supporting humanitarian causes, screenwriting, directing, acting and dating we, as two AARP members in good standing, would appreciate your reply.
Sincerely, Joan & Kathy
PS: I thought you might get a kick out the picture my husband snapped of (a somewhat detached) you and I at dinner together in Madame Tussaud's in London....
