George Clooney's Recent Behavior in a Restaurant Shows Just What Kind of Guy He Is

Awww! 27

Oh, that George Clooney. What a hunk a burnin' love. If only he'd settle down and make some baaaaaabies. Because we need more people like him in the world. (JK, George. Your child-free, marriage-free life is a perfectly valid choice.) Anyhoo. Guess what George did, y'all? Did he visit some warn-torn country again? Did he make some socially meaningful movie? Did he get yet ANOTHER gorgeous girlfriend? Nope! It's better than all of that. (And honestly some moms could learn a thing or three from his gobsmacking act of restaurant behavior.)

George was hangin' with some buds in a trendy Berlin restaurant. And apparently George & Co. were noisily yukking it up and being all THRILLED TO BE IN THE COMPANY OF GEORGE CLOONEY.

So when a guy who sat near them went to pay his $135 tab, he was stunned to be told that Georgey Poo had settled it already. And he added that he hoped he hadn't disturbed the man's dinner.

Hear that??!! Some moms and their noisy offspring might want to take note. But lo, the guy said not only was George NOT disturbing him (because how could he? he's George Clooney), but he didn't even know who the actor was. Whaaa??? Sacrilege!

Said the lucky man who got to WATCH GEORGE EAT: "They had behaved in a very cultivated manner. I was stunned."

You mean George wasn't running around with his pants around his ankles, crawling under the tables, and sending out throat-rattling screams from hell?

Aw, isn't that like George to think he's being rude even though he's being all gentlemanly and mannered 'n' stuff? I don't get this whole Ryan Gosling thing. It's GC all the way, iffin ya ask me.

What do you think of George's gesture? Have you ever picked up anyone's tab?

Amazing how an article presumably about George Clooney was really a backhanded criticism of mothers. You're a jerk, Kiri.

Wow, this article came off as really rude towards moms who "dared" go out to eat with their noisy, pants around the ankles hell screaming child.

This article is so terribly written it made my head hurt. You seriously got paid to write that garbled mess?

I love kids, but I hate trying to eat and hearing nothing but screaming in the booth next to me, while the mom or dad is in la-la land playing on their cell phone. Therefore, I avoid dining out during peak child friendly hours. It's bad enough I have to put up with it in the grocery store, but at least there,  I can walk away should there be a kid throwing a fit!

Anyway, that was very nice of Mr. Clooney, I wouldn't expect anything less from him.

I thought the crazy behaviour described was sarcastically referring to how other celebrities seem to act when they're out (the ones that make it to media light anyway). Not about children. The part about parents being more aware of their kids disturbing other people in the restaurant was about kids. Which a lot of people should consider doing. (especially at dennys, at 1am, when I can't hear the person in front of me speaking, cause the kid behind me is screaming they want McDonald's for 45 minutes.)

I actually never had a bad time in a restaurant even when there was families around.

I guess parents should never take their children out to eat huh?

I agree on the Gosling thing. I sooo don't get it. At all.

Another gem from Jerk Kiri. I gotta start screening by author before I read.

Yeah, this article annoyed me a little. You can be doing everything *right* as a parent and your kid could still throw a piece of food or suddenly shriek. It happens. I do not ever play on any type of device when I'm with my kids in public. I try really hard to make sure we are not ever bothering anybody else and if my kids start getting loud, we usually pack up and go. My advice to people like Kiri who don't like to be around kids when they are eating on the chance that they may do something completely kid like is to avoid family friendly restaurants around normal family friendly hours. Parents (and kids) deserve to get to go out to eat, too, and it's not feasible to always have a babysitter. The suggestion that moms eating out with kids should pick up the tab of nearby patrons is ridiculous. I wish I had that kind of money!

So if I go out to dinner with my family and my children happen to be loud ( and then controlled by the parent) it's up to mr to pay for someone else's dinner??? Yeah, poor journalism. Iffin ya ask me!
