George Clooney Hospitalized After Losing 28 Pounds

George Clooney was hospitalized with pancreatitis after dropping nearly 28 pounds for his forthcoming film, “The Midnight Sky,” according to the UK’s Mirror.

Clooney, 59, shed the weight for his role in the film as an astronomer who survives an apocalyptic event, but four days before he was due to report to set, he was rushed to the hospital with stomach pains, eventually diagnosed as pancreatitis, and spent weeks recovering.

He told the tabloid, “I think I was trying too hard to lose the weight quickly and probably wasn’t taking care of myself.”

Clooney, who also directs the film, added, “It took a few weeks to get better and as a director, it’s not so easy because you need energy. We were out on this glacier in Finland, which made it a lot harder work. But it certainly helped with the character.”

He also had to grow a wizardesque beard for the role, which apparently didn’t win him any points with his wife, Amal, 42.

“I grew a big ugly beard and my son loved it because he’d hide things in it, which I wouldn’t know about until I got to work and I’d be like, ‘Oh, there’s a popsicle stuck in my beard.’ But my wife and daughter were really happy when it came off because it was very hard to find a face underneath all that mess.”

The Clooneys are parents to twins Alexander and Ella, 3, and have been spending the pandemic in the Hollywood Hills.

“We really haven’t moved since February,” Clooney told the Mirror. “It’s easier in Los Angeles because it’s not raining and snowing, so it’s a lot easier to walk out in the street.”

The actor added that he’s been keeping busy by cooking for the family and doing handyman-style chores around the house, painting and wood-staining furniture.

Unfortunately, Clooney’s ascetic approach to “The Midnight Sky” didn’t win the film any favor with critics: It’s sitting at a 58 percent critics’ score from 36 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes ahead of its Dec. 23 release.

  1. Got news you do not! There are photos on back channels of Clooney with O’Bama on Epstein’s Island! Yep, he’s also on the “list of visitors” from Ghislaine Maxwell! Sorry folks, but George Clooney’s a sorry excuse for a real human, being involved with the deep state as well as child traffickers! FYI, you can find that list under the freedom of information act, it’s been declassified for those who are looking for the truth! #SAVETHECHILDREN

      1. Trump is father of all lies..arrogant bastard with no values in life, deplorable followers which he fuels to uphold in their narcissistic way of showing that they never have any character & decency ever in their upbringing😇

        1. Boy have you been brainwashed. Everything you state is exactly what the democrats ARE and Trump is not. I’m sorry you are so brainless that you have no idea what your talking about.

    1. Not angry or hostile.
      People are, just, getting sick of the lies, fake news media, and a fake virus that’s getting milked to death.

      Sick of the Leftists Dems, past Presidents, and higher up Officials that are involved in Pedophilia, underground sex-trafficking, drugs, and, much more corruption in our Gov’t, andû Hollywood.

      1. Mary lt took 50 to60 years to prove that Sen. Mc Carthage was right about Hollywood. They are truly just a bunch of pedophile drug induced morons. What I want to know is when the big quake coming and do the country a favor.

  2. I am not interested to watch any of his movies anymore whether in the past, present nor future ones. I won’t put a dime for any of his projects. He does not need my money anyway nor any favors from me. But, i hope he gets well. Have a blessed Christmas one & all. Oh by the way, he may be anti Christian as well by now so he may not welcome the celebration of the nativity. Just the same have a good day, Clooney. Hoping though his kids would learn more about the real significance of Christmas that is rooted in the belief of our Christian faith and by the grace of God be Christ fans hence live according to His teachings.

  3. I think George Clooney is a great actor. He is an unbeliever and acts like one. My prayer is that he has an encounter with his Creator that will turn his heart to Jesus. And that his family will follow.

    1. You are entirely correct in that George Clooney needs to surrender his life to Jesus Christ… If he dies in his “unsaved state” he’ll spend Eternity in Hell…and only the Devil wins…No one should wish Hell on his/her worst enemy…Eternal Flames never go out and they are never on “simmer “….We need to pray for his salvation and that his wife and twins accept Jesus too….The only thing we can take with us when we die are our good deeds or works done on behalf of Jesus….

  4. You must be kidding!!!! How could anybody vote for a pathological liar whose only interest is himself.
    President Lincoln is turning over in his grave!!!!

    1. Hey, Einstein, 74 million + what the D-RATS Stole. Beijing Biden would not recognize the truth if it slapped his demented MIND in the face!!!

    2. You must have voted for Hillary and Biden who’s only interest is distorting families and the American way of life . You are a armchair commie with no brain to think for yourself. Keep believing the fake news and the democrats they will lead you right to your own extermination.

  5. George Clooney is an old has-been and I’m not interested in watching any of his movies either. The stupid communists in Hollywood are just pretend people and don’t know anything about the economics that drive a free culture and prosperity. They make millions just pretending to be heroes for a couple months.

  6. Are you kidding me? Clooney presents a front that he worked so hard for this movie that he had to be hospitalized. Do we care? Is that the sort of thing we need to concern ourselves with? Anyway, it was pancreatitis he suffered from, not weight loss. You can get pancreatitis at any weight. But now that you felt you had to spotlight Clooney, it reminds me that he is on my s—list and I won’t be seeing this movie, or any movie he is in, and I couldn’t care less how much he gains or loses or how sick he is. He suffers a lot….yes….but it’s from White Privilege and/or Elitism.

  7. The Democrats are the REAL LOSERS…Wait till they find out, after all that voting for Biden and the Fraud votes..They’ll find out, what a TOTAL LIAR BIDEN IS!!

  8. Clooney is a great actor, I rank him up there next to Omar Shariff, unfortunately they are both Muslims and are in desperate need of a savior, someone preach the gospel of Christ to Clooney so he and his family can become born again. Its to late for Shariff but George can still be converted to Christ and enjoy the benefits of Heaven one day. Think of it, if George, a Muslim, got born again there could be a tidal wave of Muslims turning to Christ in this country. George, God loves you and leaves an open invitation for you to call on his name and Jesus will come in and make His abode with you forever. God Bless You
