George Clooney, what’s it like it be so handsome and so gallant? It’s exhausting, right? George may have hit up the SAG Awards yesterday to represent for The Descendants, but he still made a point to stick up for friend Demi Moore while he was at it. “It’s always troubling when people you know and people who you care about end up going through a difficult time,” Clooney told The Insider on the red carpet. before lambasting the decision to release Demi Moore’s 911 call to the public. “I think it’s a stupid thing,” he explained. “I think it’s stupid for anyone, whether they’re celebrated or not, I don’t believe their 911 call should be broadcast around the world, but that’s my opinion.” Man, we want George Clooney to defend us to the press; he does it with such class.
Moore’s call, placed by a friend from the star’s L.A. home last Monday, was stripped of any references to drugs; some allege, however, that the call indicates Demi’s daughter Rumer Willis was present at the time of the crisis. Said Clooney, “What’s happening and what people have to remember is that people are getting famous from Facebook and Twitter, so it’s not just about people here, it’s about everybody. There won’t be any version of privacy. So it’s going to be a tricky thing.” It is a chilling thought that anyone’s 911 call could be made public. Celebrity emergencies aside, do you know many people get things stuck in their butts and have to be rushed in for a humiliating E.R. visit? Or, um, so we’ve heard.
