Team George Generates Plans for the South
It was a tale of two Georges when ABC's Diane Sawyer sat down with Former U.S. President George Bush and Sexiest Man Alive George Clooney, to get to the bottom of this unlikely duo on Thursday morning's “Good Morning America.”
Their goal: to help Cameron, Louisiana, a small town devastated by Hurricane Rita.
“This was about saving and bringing to life a hospital that was devastated in the storm,” the elder Bush said.
But how did the former Prez recruit someone from outside the politically charged world?
“We imposed on a mutual friend, Jerry Weintraub,” Mr. Bush dished.
And it didn't take long for talk to turn to other hot Hollywood topics, like Britney Spears.
“What is it about Britney Spears?” Bush inquired. “No, I don't have anything! I'm too old for that kind of thing!”
Bush may be edging upward in age, but he's totally hip to what gets public awareness, including bringing in the Sexiest Man Alive -- and he congratulated George on his huge honor.
“Thank you,” Clooney responded. “I'm very proud, I've worked very hard.”
