I Believe in Happy Travels

      I've never gotten women's crazed obsession with George Clooney. Yes, he is a great actor, yes, he is good looking, yes, he does get better with age, yes, he does have charm, but that holds water for almost any other man in Hollywood. That's their job - to look resplendent and never seem to get old and/or ugly. And smile while they're at it. But there are things about him I find exciting, but those probably aren't characteristics making other women swoon over him.
      He's an eternal bachelor, hasn't been married, doesn't want to get married and won't get married. I think it's pretty amusing (and stupid) how the mind of the general public works considering him gay because of the fact he's unwed. Surprisingly, the lack of a circular piece of precious metal on one's ring finger does not a gay make.
      Not only he's not into marriage, he's not into children either. Nicole Kidman and Michelle Pfeiffer bet him 10,000 dollars he'd have children by the time he'd be 40 and they sent him a check shortly after his 40th birthday, but supposedly he sent it back wanting to double the bet by the time he'd be 50. He was 52 this month and still no kiddos despite the fact he's been dating all these gorgeous, young, very fertile women. Which is another reason I admire him and aspire to be like him.
      Whether you hate him, don't care about him, like him, love him, masturbate to him, please, enjoy a few of his quotes:
  1. I'm kind of comfortable with getting older because it's better than the other option, which is being dead. So I'll take getting older.
  2. Run for office? No. I've slept with too many women, I've done too many drugs and I've been to too many parties.
  3. It's incredibly unfair. You don't see a lot of 60-year-old women with 20-year-old men on screen.
  4. Directing is really exciting. In the end, it's more fun to be the painter than the paint.
  5. You never really learn much from hearing yourself talk.
  6. I don't like to share my personal life. It wouldn't be personal if I shared it.
  7. I don't believe in happy endings, but I do believe in happy travels because ultimately you die at a very young age or you live long enough to watch your friends die. It's a mean thing, life.
  8. There's a strange pecking order among actors. Theater actors look down on film actors, who look down on TV actors. Thank God for reality shows or we wouldn't have anybody to look down on.
  9. After doing One Fine Day and playing a pediatrician on ER I'll never have kids. I'm going to have a vasectomy.
  10. I'm not smart enough and I don't know enough about what's going on.
  11. I'm certainly the last person to give advice on, well, anything.
  12. Things hurt me now. My knees hurt, my back hurts, but my head still thinks it's 23.
  13. The only failure is not to try.
      In my opinion, Clooney is not just a smart looking chap but a smart sounding one too. And how could you not like a cast member of The Men Who Stare at Goats - that movie's just too frigging cool. He's a true Jedi warrior, no doubt.

I'm wearing:
Blazer: Anne Christine
Jeans: Tally Weijl
Shirt: don't know (too old)
Wedges: eBay
Sunglasses: C&A

  1. He's cute but actually quite short. My friend and I were in a gym working out and I nudged to my friend that it might be George Clooney and she said - no,its a guy who looks like him and then his publicist came in. He is very photogenic though and he does seem a great laugh!

    1. You were in a gym with George Clooney! Sorry to gatecrash your comment section!

    2. I was shocked to read that too!!!:D

  2. Beautiful outfit!

  3. I am in love with your fabulous shoes!

  4. Your shoes... AMAZING. No words for this look... Love it! xo

  5. I can't believe you got those wedges off of Ebay love them! I never understood the fascination with George Clooney besides his sense of humor and I like how he acknowledges how older women in film are treated versus older guys

  6. loooove your booties!

  7. Nice boots!!! Love your outfit

  8. Great Outfit ,you look amazing! Love the Wedges <3


  9. Great look and amazing shoes - love your quotes :)


  10. I do get the fascination with George Clooney from a superficial point of view. I didn't really know too much about him as a person, but like you I have a new found fondness for him based on some of the thoughts and morals that you have highlighted - namely his take on having children and getting married. I chuckled at number 2.

    I wish someone would bet me £10,000 that I wouldn't have children or get married by 40. I'd be going on an almighty shopping spree for my 40th birthday!

    1. Agreed. To make that kind of a bet would be nice.:)

  11. First, I must say, those shoes are AWESOME! Second, my favorite is#8 because it's pretty true. I honestly hate on film actors a bit because stage actors get one take for the entire show while they can mess up as much as they want (OK, within reason). There's more pressure when it's live in front of an audience expecting a perfect show. And George Clooney really just doesn't do it for me. I don't see the appeal either. I think it's the gray hair.

  12. Hi sweet Peet!
    what a gorgeous post - photos and setting! the look is perfect!
    love the trend and the super inspirational post!
    wish you a fantastic week!

  13. I love those George Clooney quotes! Almost all of them are true for me, though I do sometimes regret that I never had kids. Obviously despite occasionally fearing I might be getting senile I still must mentally think I'm 23 or I wouldn't have ogled your bottom in the photo of you walking up the stairs (incorrigible). Your blue Tally Weijl jeans coordinate beautifully with your orange Anne Christine blazer.

  14. To be honest, I did not know much about George Clooney - he might not be my type of guy! but then again I'm marrying the guy that did not find your orange jokes funny... so my taste is kind of weird :) lol cool facts - thanks for sharing and I love the shoes! you look beautiful!


  15. Great outfit, love the shoes!!!

  16. I never got the George Clooney thing either until this post. While women swoon over his looks, these smart quips from him set him apart from other actors. Haha, you're right, he's smart looking AND smart sounding!
    Oh, and your cheetah print wedges? I love them *_*

    Trendy Teal

  17. Awesome, my dear.

    Have a great day,


  18. Love those printed wedges, and I really like your bright orange blazer too :)

    Away From Blue

  19. Wowow, I didn't know he didn't want to be married or children (I do not keep up with celebs at all, it's quite a miracle that I know who he is, ha!)

    Yayaya for the orange blazer!!!! <3

  26. I really love your shoes, so amazing ! <3


  27. Fucking cool heels!!!
    Where did you do the pics?? It`s so great this staircase in the middle of nature =)

    Im not very fan of George Clooney (unless we talk about oceans eleven, i love that saga). But Im really really in love with another man who made a pact with the devil: Richard Gere.

    By the way, i wanted to see the men who stare at goats buut it seemed so strange... I don't know... What do you expect to see from a film with this title?? i was scared.
    But i will try to see it because it seems you liked it so much (i will let you know someday)


  28. funky shoes :))) love that place !
    Ah George... if you're not into him HOW THE F* do you know all that stuff ? I only know he was with some blond french chick and he's been in ocean eleven... that's pretty much it^^
    I love N° 8 though

    1. Because I know famous people, who don't have kids. They're my defense argument.:)

  29. He's an actor that's been around forever. He's very cool and classy, but not afraid to be really goofy in movies too. I really like that!

  33. Love this color and heels!

  34. Witty quotes, 4 is especially inspiring! I also think that it is better to create our own path than simply following someone else's footsteps.

    Have a lovely day :)

  35. hahahah oh my god... so funny. I had no idea about the $10k bet! And you know what, I didnt even know he's never been married and he could have kids for all I know. I wouldnt have a clue. So this was very educational for me! I think some of those quotes are pretty damn good. especially the last one!

  36. Thanks for your comment! :) your blog is really cool
