Hollywood actor and humanitarian, George Clooney visited the earthquake hit area of L'aquila, Italy yesterday during the G8 summit. He vowed to help the region by announcing a part of his upcoming movie set to film in September, will be shot in parts of L'aquila, Italy. Clooney's hope is to bring a boost to the Italian town and get it back on its feet. Clooney's been known to bring attention to world issues and says, "The only way that people who are famous can help is by bringing attention." God, I love that guy.

George Clooney & Celebrity Friends Raise Tons Of Money For Darfur Charity.

George Clooney is a good guy. If there is a definition in the dictionary for good guy, there should be a picture of him right next to it. Now, we all know George isn't Italian, but he might as well be. He's taken a strong interest in the Italian culture and actually owns a villa in Lake Como, Italy. So, I guess I will declare him an honorary Italian.

OK, so moving onto why he's such a good guy. He recently organized a charity event in Venice, Italy with his other celebrity Ocean's co-stars--Damon, Cheadle, & Pitt, which raised millions. Now this past Thursday, he coordinated and participated in another charity event where in total he and other celebs like Kid Rock and Bono and Scarlett Johansson raised a whopping 14.57 million for the people of Darfur.

I think its amazing and honorable that George Clooney has goals outside of Hollywood and uses his celebrity to help others. Bravo George.

Even Brad Pitt has an Idol and its Italian MotorCycle Racer & Superstar, Valentino Rossi.

Dreams come true even for celebrities like, Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt, who is known for his motorcycle obsession is in complete awe of Italian, superstar motor cycle racer, Valentino Rossi.

Rossi, is known for his super ability in taking curves at high speeds, where he is literally inches away from the ground. Rossi, made a statement this week saying he would allow Brad to ride his Yahama. So, for Brad Pitt having anything to do with the motorcycle superstar is a dream come true. Its kind of refreshing to know that even supermega stars like Brad can idolize and even have interests outside of their business or should I say bubble. I love those guys, always taking an interest in the Italian culture. (This includes his buddy, George Clooney.)
