George Clooney: A work of art, for sure. But God's gift to women?

By Liz Kelly

Not only is George Clooney one of People's sexiest men alive. He's also apparently God's gift to women. This according to a Cincinnati artist who painted a large outdoor mural depicting Clooney in a take-off of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel painting, the Creation of Man.

Clooney is in Cincinnati shooting "The Ides of March" and local art gallery Studio Vertu recognized the man's presence in their city for what it is: their chance to get some attention. Either that, or the biggest thing to happen to Cincinnati since the tragic turkey drop of 1978.

The gallery owner and muralist explain the work in the video below:

I wonder if Watson would mistake Cleveland for Toronto. I'm guessing that Byoolin is behind Watson's Jeopardy faux pas.
