George Clooney Proves a Popular Director

George Clooney Proves a Popular Director

The Associated Press


LONDON
Hollywood hunk George Clooney is proving as popular in the director's chair as he is onscreen.

The 41-year-old star arrived at the London premiere of his new movie Monday night to the delight of screaming fans.

Clooney graced a red carpet for his directorial debut "Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind," which just won the best actor award at the Berlin Film Festival for Sam Rockwell.

The former "ER" star signed autographs and shook hands with the crowd gathered outside the UGC Haymarket in Piccadilly, central London, to catch a glimpse of Clooney on a cold evening.

"Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind," also starring Julia Roberts and Drew Barrymore, tells the story of a legendary 1970s American TV producer and "The Gong Show" host Chuck Barris.

The film is based on Barris' autobiography in which he claims to have led an extraordinary double life as a CIA assassin - fronting game shows by day and murdering government targets by night.

Asked about his future plans, Clooney said: "I'll direct again if something interesting comes along."

Someone please take away Aaron Amos' connection to the Internet. Makes me actually yearn for the good ol' days of letters to the editor from our favorite little town in California.

No, but seriously. This is a really an informative and breaking-news style report.
