Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney Turned Away from Retirement Home
ProAging Editorial – “This funny story shows great security in a community . . . Bravo!”
Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney was turned away on a visit to a retirement home in Italy after a member of staff failed to recognize him.
The filmmaker/actor regularly visits the Sacred Heart rest home in Dizzasco — near his home in Laglio on the banks of Lake Como — on his Harley Davidson motorcycle.
Clooney, who gives the residents DVDs of classic movies and his own films, has always requested staff at the home keep his visits private.
However, during a recent visit, one employee failed to recognize him in his leather biking gear and refused to let him in.
His publicist Stan Rosenfeld says, “George does this sort of thing but it’s not for public recognition. I wouldn’t want to say anything else.”
