From The Reds To ‘Roseanne’: Clooney’s early steps and journey to stardom

George was born to a TV-host dad and had an actress for an aunt, but he was more into catching baseballs than the acting bug. After a not-so-hot audition with the Cincinnati Reds, he packed his bags and headed for La La Land at just 21. He wanted to try his luck with acting. And boy, did it pay off!

His debut on the acting scene was nothing flashy: minor roles in TV comedies. But soon enough, he started bagging some steady gigs in hit shows like “The Facts of Life” and “Roseanne”. George naturally wanted more.

His break came in ’94 when he got cast as heartthrob Dr. Doug Ross on the super-popular medical drama “ER”. George had finally set up permanent residence on prime-time TV and everyone took notice.

The Earnings of a Silver Screen Sensation: Revenue from George’s main career

In case you didn’t know, being a top-notch Hollywood celeb really pays off — literally, though you may have to work at it for a while before earning the truly insane figures.

Clooney’s cash climb started way back when he was doing TV roles. During his “ER” gig, from 1994 to 1999, he supposedly walked away with $100,000 an episode. He chose stability over massive pay raises, and in the end, he stacked up a pretty respectable $11 million from his “ER” run .

That’s nothing when you compare it to his earnings on film. In 2001, for instance, George’s insane gig with Ocean’s Eleven bagged him a cool $20 million. But acting isn’t his only cash cow in Hollywood. When he did Gravity in 2013, he struck a sweet deal to get himself a share of the movie’s profits. Thanks to that move, apart from his regular $20-million pay, he cashed in an extra $14 million when the film proved successful, raking in a whopping $725 million worldwide. That’s a total of $34 million for a single film (in case you didn’t feel like doing the math).

Securing the Bag: George Clooney’s lucrative side hustles

George Clooney hasn’t just made his fortune in Hollywood. This A-lister has some epic side gigs that have swollen his bank account. He knows how to play the money game and isn’t just deciding on his next movie role, he’s got his fingers in a bunch of different pies.

Remember in 2013 when Clooney started popping up in all those super swanky Nespresso ads? He reportedly pocketed a cool $40 million for that deal. Not a bad gig, getting paid a slew of money AND having your face associated with everyone’s morning caffeine fix. Solid PR move.

Then he casually co-founded his very own tequila brand, Casamigos. What started as a fun, tequila-filled dream in 2013 exploded into a liquid lunch of the millionaire kind – talk about a passion project gone right! George would sell it on to mega booze brand Diageo for a whopping $1 billion in 2017. The deal put $150 million straight into George’s bank account, with more earnings coming in the form of scheduled bonus payouts.

Luxuries, Assets, and Altruism: George’s expenditures and generosity

Let’s start with where he kicks back – Clooney’s got pads all over the place. He snapped up a huge LA villa from Stevie Nicks back in ’95 for a cool $2.2 million, then added a million-dollar makeover. Then he jumped the pond and dropped $7 million in 2002 on an 18th-century stunner on Lake Como, Italy. He and wife Amal snagged a delightful spot on the English isle of Sonning Eye in 2014 for $13 million, pimped out with a pool bar and a 16-seat home cinema. They also nabbed a ritzy NYC condo for $14.7 million in 2016 and a French vino estate for $8.3 million in 2021.

And that’s just his houses! When it comes to getting around, George has got a stellar lineup of rides. He’s got a vintage dad hand-me-down – a Chevy Corvette V8 C1 convertible. Plus, he’s into bikes, with the 2017 Harley-Davidson Dresser Touring Ultra Limited FLHTK and the Piaggio MP3 250 scooter composing his collection. And for those green days, he’s got an eco-friendly Tango T600 EV and a 2008 Tesla ‘Signature 100’ Roadster.

But Clooney’s not just about the bling — the guy’s also got a massive heart. He helped start the Clooney Foundation for Justice in 2016 to promote legal fairness and human rights. He and Amal put their money where their mouth is, too, giving a whopping $1 million to the Southern Poverty Law Center in the wake of growing hate crimes. George has also hooked up with his Ocean’s Eleven crew to start ‘Not On Our Watch’, a group focused on disaster relief and human rights protection.

Inside the Leading Man’s Life: George’s partners, progeny, and pals

George Clooney’s life is far from snooze-worthy, even when he was a child, thanks to his dad Nick Clooney, a big-time TV presenter, and mom Nina Bruce Clooney, a city councilwoman.

Before George settled down with Amal, he got hitched to actress Talia Balsam in 1989 only to part ways in 1992. Post-divorce, George was single and ready to mingle for a good while. That was until he fell head over heels for Amal Alamuddin, a prominent international human rights lawyer. These lovebirds got engaged in 2014 and tied the knot that same year in a swanky Italian extravaganza.

Then, in 2017, these two gorgeous humans reproduced and introduced to the world twins Alexander and Ella. Alexander is already getting into character, making everyone belly-laugh, including his old man. Meanwhile, Ella prefers her own show, being the boss lady who keeps everyone in check.

In the buddy corner, George is pretty tight with his ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ posse, like Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Don Cheadle. They’re not just colleagues but real pals, often spotted chilling out together and doing some serious good in the world with their humanitarian organization, ‘Not On Our Watch’.

Health Scare in Spotlight: George’s encounter with pancreatitis

George Clooney gave us all a bit of a shock in 2020. While getting ready for “The Midnight Sky” on Netflix, he ended up with pancreatitis. Word is, the intensive dieting he undertook for his role — 28 lb. weight drop — set it off. Thanks to modern medicine, Clooney sorted it out quickly and bounced back on film. Clooney’s little scare was a wake-up call for all those actors willing to push themselves to the limit for their craft.
