George Clooney - About Those 70 Virgins

Funny quote for the day:
Clooney, in 2005, speaking about suicide bombers: "But, really, who wants seventy virgins? I want eight pros."
I'm catching up on old New Yorkers. This from Clooney profile, Somebody Has to Be in Control; The effort behind George Clooney's effortless charm by Ian Parker.

Also found interesting that Clooney is so busy he doesn't have time for anything. Rande Gerber (Cindy Crawford's husband) redecorated Clooney's LA home without any apparent direction. Parker:
I saw a row of tall glass jars containing packaged candies, which I took to to be a personal quirk until I read that Rande Gerber keeps packaged candies in tall glass jars in his offices in New York and Malibu. This all surely points more to pressures on Clooney's time than to a weirdly unformed sense of sel, but it was nonetheless curious to hear Clooney joke, when we were standing in a leathery side room where his friends are allowed to smoke, "I suppose I have a flask collection" - pointing to a line of hip flasks on a shelf.
I've not finished it yet, but it's interesting.
