After his trip abroad last week, George Clooney must have felt the need to see some of the most important people in his life — his parents Nick and Nina — for dinner out in NYC on Thursday night. There's something so sweet about seeing him with his mom and dad, who just look so proud of their son. Earlier in the day, George's parents were in attendance when he got very passionate speaking at the UN about his recent travels and the need to better equip the peace keeping forces in Darfur. He said,
"Either give them the basic tools for protecting the population [and themselves] or have the decency to just bring them all home...And go back into your offices and wait until it's all over...I am the son of a newsman, so the job of messenger comes with the responsibility to deal with facts, not to tell people what they want to hear, but to tell them what the truth is, unfiltered."
It's obvious to see where George gets his philanthropic and intensely moral side, which makes me love him even more. Plus, now we can see where he gets his good looks too.
While 2007 was a big one for Katherine Heigl, 2008 is off to a great start as well. 27 Dresses is a hit and this week she was ranked #1 on AskMen.com's list of the most desirable women. The list is supposedly chosen based on looks, humor, intelligence and charisma. So tell us — do you think she deserves to be named the most desirable woman of the year?
Mandy Moore has definitely been taking it easy lately with trips to the gym, shopping around LA and only the occasional party. It's not that she's lazy, of course, as she recently wrote on her MySpace blog saying her relaxed lifestyle is due to a writers' strike-induced break. Can't blame her for enjoying the routine of "pilates, acupuncture, driving around town listening to good jams," but her upcoming short Australian tour with Ben Lee and Kelly Clarkson sounds like a blast, too.
Jennifer Garner clutched all the belongings she needed in her hands, but her little Violet opted instead for a fashionable little handbag to tote around LA yesterday afternoon after more house hunting with Ben. Jen looks pretty cute in her plaid coat, but obviously Violet is going to be the fashionista of the family. These two aren't quite carrying matching designer just yet, but that would be a sight — especially since Jen often skips the couture herself. Also gotta love the look on Violet's face, she is going to be the coolest little sass muffin ever.
