Comment Box: George Clooney and Paris Hilton?!

By Liz Kelly

Clooney and Hilton? (Left: Reuters, Right: Getty Images)

Any truth to George Clooney and Paris Hilton dating? (Heard it on Mix this am). It's got to be a joke. I just has to be. -- Guest1234

OMG, could George Clooney, like, totally be Paris Hilton's new BOBFF (Best One-time Batman Boyfriend Forever)? Let's get right to the point: Probably not, but maybe. Sorry, that's the best I can do.

A few of the lower-threshhold-for-facts tabs are making much of a couple of supposed sightings of Clooney, 47, and Hilton, 27, together. The first was apparently at Hollywood's Whiskey Bar in December, where the couple (shudder) "sat and talked together for ages," according to an unnamed, and potentially non-existent, source. "They didn’t seem to be aware of anyone else in the room."

The next sighting was at Hollywood's Dan Tana's restaurant, where the two were allegedly joined by director Ridley Scott and Paris's new (reality show picked) BFF Brittany Flickinger. Odds that the dinner was romantic drop precipitously, but the other possibility -- that this was a business meeting -- strike me as similarly preposterous.

Could Clooney have been meeting with Hilton to apologize for his derisive comments about Hilton last summer:

"There is a funny thing that happens when you are a young actor. You equate financial success and getting jobs with whether or not you are good at it. And it still happens. That's why there is Paris Hilton. Now I'm in trouble with Paris Hilton."

Anything is possible -- after all, who ever saw the short-lived romance between Ryan Seacrest and Teri Hatcher coming? Clooney most recently dated cocktail waitress turned reality show contestant Sarah Larson, while Hilton broke up with Good Charlotte's Benji Madden in November. For the record, Clooney spent the new year in Baja California with pals Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber and Kid Rock while Hilton rang in 2009 at a paid gig in Australia.

Maybe Clooney just needs a slumpbuster. I just hope he has a good supply of penicillin at his disposal.

Hey, why not? Maybe they're starring in Hollywood's latest remake of some 1970s classic flick. He's got the porn 'stache, she's got the overblown feathered hair and "acting skills."

George has finally met his match in complete self-absorption! It must be hard when they are both near a mirror - pushing each other out of the way for views of their true love.

Good gawd no! Say it ain't so Clooney, say it ain't sooooo! I'd sooner see him with Natalie or Tootie from the Facts of Life than Paris Hilton.

Oh c'mon. George Clooney loves playing games with the "paparazzis." I'd sooner believe that he did a Barry Williams and dated Charlotte Rae when they worked together on "The Facts of Life." George and Paris? Nuh-uh.

True, true, TD; my visceral reaction just overwhelmed my logic centers for a few minutes there. Give me a few more minutes for hodie and myself to dry-heave in the corner and we'll be fine.

Based on his latest dating habits, I would say Paris is too old for him.

Posted by: epjd | January 5, 2009 11:45 AM | Report abuse

I cannot imagine anyone sitting and talking together with Paris Hilton "for ages," unless Clooney did all the talking. Which with the size of his ego, I guess is possible. He is a decent actor, in spite of the wow factor. She, on the other hand, unless she was deliberately simple in The Simple Life, is an indecent "actress."

Posted by: reddragon1 | January 5, 2009 11:46 AM | Report abuse

See, the thing is that George is a secret BFF of Dorothy, so the Paris stuff is moot.

Feel better, Lizards?

VTY,

Maybe George had enjoyed Paris' satirical political video? Or some other video of hers?

FOD or not (I don't buy it), George is looking a little old for only 47. Any contact with Paris would only age him more.

tanyaballard and reddragon1, that's IT! George and Paris are planning to work together on a new television show, "The Simple Facts of Life"!

The scene: Edna's Edibles. George is sweeping up at the end of the day when an incognito Paris comes in asking for a job.

(Side note: I just realized I have no life when the name Edna's Edibles popped into my head without hesitation, yet I can't find my keys. Don't mind me.)

Posted by: td_in_baltimore | January 5, 2009 12:08 PM | Report abuse

I read "Edna's Edibles" and the first word that followed in my mind was "underwear."

That image is waaaaay worse than either the Winehouse pix or the other day's Donatella pix.

byoolin, are you referring to Dame Edna Everage? (If not, then sorry to be so obtuse).

So what if they're dating (or whatever they call it in The Wood)? It's not like he's going to marry her -- or anyone else, apparently. I bet the reality is that she is nowhere near as "dumb" as her personna; she's probably a good conversationalist and dynamite in the ol' sack. And she's definitely not a golddigger, since she's got that covered. Rock on, George. Have fun.

well if you want to get started on a career, you go out with George Clooney, you want a long term relationship, you go out with anyone else. so this could possible happen, he gets her career started with advantages on the side. no prob

This means that if the Cloonster is an FOD, he's gettin' it on with Kid Rock.

This, to me, would be a more serious travesty than any relationship with Paris Hilton.

If true, this is pretty funny...maybe he is not as classy as we think. We know George likes young women. But to me, Paris is goofy. I would never watch her show, buy her CD or whatever "talent" she is selling...

I used to be a big fan of George Clooney, but I have to say seeing his smiling face beaming out at me from a shop window in Munich where he was hawking espresso machines kind of messed it up for me. I felt it was beneath him.
And I'm certain the Paris Hilton is beneath him, in a figurative, non-literal way.

TD, I can beat you on the Edna's Edibles. As soon as I read that, I said "wait, Edna's Edibles burned down. They built "Over Our Heads" to replace it, which is when they hired George Clooney to be the contractor." Yeah, I watched waaaaay too much Facts of Life.

It's easy to "talk for ages" with just about anyone when you're bombed. Doesn't just the same thing happen at the Tiki Bar all the time? I know from the bodies littering Possum Island today that plenty of talking went on last week.

Yep, yellowjkt, I would definitely presribe some Valtrex but the penicillin and a big shot of Rocephin in the caboose might also teach him a lesson.

Wow, Facts of Life flashbacks. I had forgotten he was on that show.

agree with mdreader, hanging out with Kidrock is a much bigger offense. We might also have to prescribe some Rid or Nix. yuck

Can Paris be both a Starlet Commando and a Killer Tomato? And I think even the Starlet Commandos have to draw the line at Amy Winehouse. Or actually before they get there.

Could the Starlet Commandos do a joint gig with the Stashes (Clooney, Farina, and Selleck)?

Posted by: reddragon1 | January 5, 2009 2:20 PM | Report abuse

Wait wait. . .Clooney is Foreign Object Damage? Since when? There is no way. Unless the macho is too much for all the ladies of the world to handle, and therefore spills out in a glorious flood onto all passing by.

Figures that you'd be throwin' killer tomatoes, Dorkus.

Amy Winehouse is almost enough to make me swear off my liking for mammaries. Perhaps Liz should institute a Choke 'n Puke heading for pix that are gross.

td, I think the 'stache is what's making Clooney look older- both because it's more salt than pepper, and because it makes him look a little like Groucho Marx (at least in the above shot).
