President Barack Obama said that actor, George Clooney, is a good friend and a good person who cares about a caring friendship.
Clooney said Obama is not an individual applicant and he does not take advantage of their friendship. Obama also added that Clooney kept his distance so that he will not be criticized for socializing with Hollywood celebrities.
“He is also nice,” said first lady, Michelle Obama.
In May, Clooney held fundraiser funds to campaign for Obama in his home in Los Angeles, which raised nearly $15 million. Clooney is set to hold another fundraiser in Geneva later this month.
Obama told Entertainment Tonight for an interview that will air on Monday that he Clooney met through his work in Sudan when Obama was a senator.
