Dating back probably to George Washington’s time, presidents of the U.S. have hung out with American gliteratti — be that the top businessmen or top entertainers. But for some reason,Â President Obama and George Clooney have had to keep their bromance on the DL. Until now.
The prez reportedly “goes public” with their friendship in an interview airing tonight on Entertainment Tonight, admitting that he got to know Clooney through their joint work on Sudan and Darfur when Obama was in the U.S. Senate. And FLOTUS Michelle Obama isn’t being so shy about her affection for the movie star either, admitting, “He’s cute, too.” Aww! Still, President Obama feels compelled to note how he appreciates that Clooney is “sensitive to the fact that, you know, if he’s around a lot, then somehow it’ll be tagged as ‘Obama hanging out with Hollywood stars.’” Laaaame.
