George Clooney had the company of his Ides of March costars Evan Rachel Wood, who was decked out in head-to-toe maroon Gucci, Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Jeffrey Wright for last night's NYC premiere. We managed to snag a few minutes with George himself — and he's just as handsome in person! George spoke to us about the importance of filming the movie, which he directed, in the Midwest and, most importantly, in Cincinnati. He told us, "My father was an anchorman in Cincinnati, and I knew the area really well. I worked there plenty. I worked at the ladies shoe store there and sold men's suits in the area, so I knew most of the area." His father, Nick, was on hand for the afterparty at the Metropolitan Club along with George's mom, Nina. The Clooney trio mingled with other newsmen like Dan Rather and Al Roker — stay tuned for more from the red carpet later today on PopSugar TV!
George Clooney acted silly out to dinner with his parents in Lake Como last night, jokingly swinging a golf club at fellow diner Bill Murray before returning to his table. While he's playing overseas, George is still making business deals, recently moving his production company from Warner Bros. to Sony. Even when looking ahead to new projects, George still knows how to kick back, relax, and enjoy the Summer with friends and family at his Italian home.

George Clooney looked perfectly distinguished alongside his TV journalist father Nick Clooney and Chairman of News and Documentary Emmys, Bill Small, in DC last night. The trio was there to lead a discussion before a screening of Good Night and Good Luck. On the panel, dad Clooney joked about his son, "Never cared for this kid! His sister's great." To which George replied, "I always wanted to be adopted, couldn't find anyone." We've been missing our dose of Clooney in all the award season fun, but all suited up and smiley is even better than seeing him back in scrubs.

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.
