Summary
He is not your run of the mill "Sexiest Man Alive, " despite winning that designation from People magazine in 2006. Actor/activist George Clooney is one of the most respected celebrities of our time, both for his interest in and work for the larger world, and for his talents in acting, directing, and writing topical, relevant motion pictures. George Clooney: a biography will help students understand that having achieved the clout accorded a Hollywood star, one can use it to fight injustice and create a better world. The biography covers Clooney's life from childhood through adulthood. It looks at the influence of his famous aunt, Rosemary Clooney, and his television-broadcaster father. It reveals his dream of becoming a professional baseball player and his failed tryout with the Cincinnati Reds in 1977. To create her portrait, author Joni Hirsch Blackman called on sources as diverse as childhood friends, coworkers, and a UN official who traveled with Clooney on his missions as a UN Messenger of Peace. What comes across is a picture of a warm, caring, witty, and intelligent man whose priorities are his craft, his friends and family, and the world around him
