Here’s a novel interview technique: AJ Jacobs sits George Clooney down in front of a computer and talks about what the internet says about him.
We are logged on to a Facebook group called “George Clooney is NOT the sexiest man alive.”
“Ninety-four members,” says Clooney as he looks at the photo of himself with a red X through it. “What the fuck?”
He reads the site’s manifesto aloud:
I for one am sick and tired of George Clooney thinking hes the sexiest man alive, like jesus hes so old! It’s just not right. That man is so full of himself it isn’t funny. Join this group if you totally agree with me.
“Should I defend myself in this one?”
Clooney dictates and I type:
That’s bullshit. He looks great for a 70-year-old.
