Wow! George Clooney gave a powerful speech on Feb. 24 at the César Awards in Paris that you just have to see!
George Clooney, 55, was honored with the César d’Honneur Award at the 42nd César Awards in Paris on Friday, Feb. 24. The acclaimed actor and expecting father gave an impassioned speech in which he spoke about the state of world. George even took a page from Meryl Streep’s, 67, book and never addressed U.S. President Donald Trump, 70, by name, but made clear who is remarks were in reference to. Academy award winner Jean Dujardin, 44, translated George’s speech for the French audience and added his own sentiments and said, “Donald Trump is dangerous for the world.”
During his speech, George told the crowd, “As citizens of the world we’re going to have to work harder and harder not to let hate win.” A definite highlight of his speech was when he said, “love Trumps hate, courage Trumps fear and always right Trump’s wrongs.” So powerful! He encouraged people “not walk in fear of one another.”
“The actions of this president have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad and given considerable comfort to our enemies, and whose fault is that? Not really his. He didn’t create this situation of fear, he merely exploited it — and rather successfully,” he said.
Don’t worry, George’s speech was not completely politically focused. He took a few moments to give a shoutout to his lovely wife Amal, 39. George told her how he’s “excited about the years, and especially the months, to come.” Aw! George was probably alluding to the fact that the couple are expecting twins together! Amal made her first red carpet appearance since the news and looked absolutely incredible in a white gown that hugged her bump. The dress was amazing as it went from white to black feathers on the bottom half in this cool ombre fashion. Love it!
