Obamas brag about Clooney friendship

By AP Staff

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says actor George Clooney is a good friend and a good person who is sensitive about protecting that friendship.

Obama says Clooney is low-maintenance and doesn't take advantage of their friendship. He says Clooney keeps his distance so that Obama won't be criticized for hanging out with Hollywood celebrities.

First lady Michelle Obama said of Clooney: "He's cute, too."

In May, Clooney held a fundraiser for Obama at his Los Angeles home that raised nearly $15 million. Clooney is scheduled to hold another fundraiser for Obama later this month in Geneva.

Obama tells Entertainment Tonight in an interview airing Monday that he got to know Clooney through his work on Sudan when Obama was in the U.S. Senate.

    Clooney… another Hollywood lefty… he a good actor, but if he’s an Obama supporter, he’s not even an average thinker.

      He’s good-looking, but a good actor? Not so much. He moves his head around when he talks. I think being the nephew of Rosemary Clooney has been his biggest asset.

    “low maintenance” Does this mean he controls Clooney? Sure sounds like something he uses over and over for his own purpose. “low maintenance” Huh!
