George Clooney: Hollywood Humanitarianism: To Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Expected
He’s charming, talented and very, very handsome. And this week, he’ll be at the Wortham Theater Center discussing his remarkable Hollywood career, not only as an actor and director but as a humanitarian. George Clooney’s presentation, “Hollywood Humanitarianism: To Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Expected,” is the latest in the Conversation with Brilliance series.
Clooney brought a sense of Cary Grant class back to Tinseltown with his film projects, but his work didn’t stop there. The Oscar winner and his close friend and Oceans 11 co-star Don Cheadle co-founded the Not On Our Watch Project, which focuses global attention on international crises such as genocide, war and hunger. This is the first U.S. presentation by Clooney in this format and is sure to give fans insight into his commitment to bettering the world. 7 p.m. Wortham Theater Center, 501 Texas.
