Amal Clooney paid great tribute to her husband George at the American Film Institute Life Achievement Award Gala in LA on Thursday night.
Citing "a few things you may not know about George", Amal told the crowd that her husband "is a gentleman in every sense of the word and in a way that seems so rare these days and perhaps even outdated."
"He is generous with his time. He finds out about people who have suffered the same health issues as him and he writes to give them advice. He helps young people pursue their passion for film. He'll visit an elderly lady at our local nursing home as he thinks it will make her day," she said.
Praising George's commitment to "good fights" from Sudan to Parkland, Amal brought up George's "moral conscience" as a key reason why she "would never want to be with anyone else."
Speaking to George directly, she stated, "My love, what I have found with you is the great love I always hoped existed. And seeing you with our children, Ella and Alexander, is the greatest joy in my life."
Pop Sugar writes that there was not a dry eye in the room.
Not so fast Quentin Tarantino. Hollywood actor Emile Hirsch joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film about Charles Manson, 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' this week, catching a ride with heavyweights Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning and more.
On Friday, 'The Good Place' actor Jameela Jamil gave Hirsch a shout-out, throwing a grenade into the gig because Hirsch attacked one of her friends at the Sundance Film Festival just three years ago.
“Cool,” Jamil wrote on social media. “Emile Hirsch strangled my tiny female best friend until she blacked out at a party in front of dozens of witnesses at Sundance Film Festival (and was convicted) but Tarantino just cast him in a movie.” She added, “INTENSE case of rich white male privilege eh? Cool. Cool. Cool.”
The Cut writes: "The actress’s comments stem from Hirsch’s 2015 assault of a Paramount Pictures executive at a nightclub during the Sundance Film Festival. Hirsch allegedly “blindsided” the woman, who was later identified as Dani Bernfeld, by coming up behind her, putting her in a choke hold, and throwing her on the ground. Hirsch had been drinking and said he didn’t remember the details of the attack. In August 2015, he pleaded guilty to a charge of misdemeanor assault."
Shonda Rhimes has her first Netflix project, nearly a year after leaving ABC Studios for Netflix.
Rhimes has acquired the rights to the New York Magazine story “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People” by Jessica Pressler. Centered on the true-story tale of a woman con artist who wormed her way into New York high society with her lavish lifestyle, the Anna Delvey project is the first series that Rhimes herself will write since 'Scandal'.
The mega producer left her 15-year deal with ABC Studios about 10 months ago to ink a nine-figure, five-year deal with Netflix. via Hollywood Reporter
