George Clooney was joined by Renée Zellweger in Duluth, Minnesota for a news conference yesterday, then headed home to Maysville, Kentucky for a unique premiere of Leatherheads. The actor's father and aunt were born there and in fact, Aunt Rosemary Clooney also premiered her film The Stars Are Singing in 1953 in the small town. George brought his old Hollywood style along with him. He wanted a small town premiere to also go along with the theme of the film since apparently George said, "the NFL got its start in small towns." It's a nice change from the big LA lights, camera and action that a normal red carpet premiere entails, but hopefully this isn't the last we'll see of the big stars promoting their work.
