George Clooney Shows His B-Ball Skillz For Amnesty International

Don’t mess with George Clooney and a basketball. The director/actor has long enjoyed playing the sport and never misses an opportunity to play a few games.

He can also win a few bets.

Earlier this month, after principal shooting for Leatherheads (which George directed) completed, co-star (and star of The Office) John Krasinski challenged the older Clooney to a friendly game — with $1K on the line. From the article,

“The 46-year-old Clooney says, ‘I love him, but the fun part is that he talked shit. The first day on the set he’s like, ‘I play basketball’ and I was like, ‘I play a little too.’ He looks at me and goes, ‘I’ll kick your ass.’ And I was like, ‘Alright, whatever.’ And he’s like, ‘OK, let’s make it $1,000 then.’

‘So for the entire shoot we’ve been talking about this bet. We haven’t played, the whole shoot. And (on the last day of shooting) we played. And I beat him 11-8! I was on cloud nine. I was wiping my forehead with $100 bills going, ‘Whooo, is it hot in here?'”

Ha. Nice shot, George. Check out this video below that was created for Amnesty International’s “Make Some Noise” campaign. I don’t think I’ll be challenging this guy to a game of HORSE anytime soon….

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
