Few actors possess as much talent and charisma as George Clooney. From playing roles as diverse as criminal Seth Gecko and con man Danny Ocean, the actor has brought endless amounts of charm to the big screen. But as of late, Clooney has been notable by his absence from movie theaters – and the reason why might leave his biggest fans in tears.
Though he was born 2,000 miles from the lure of Tinseltown, Kentucky native Clooney was always linked to showbiz. To wit, his aunt Rosemary had been a huge star of the 1950s. Perhaps best known for starring alongside Bing Crosby in 1954’s White Christmas, Rosemary left a towering legacy for the fledgling actor to follow.
