Taking a break from making movies, George Clooney attended a meeting to discuss justice in Sudan at the US Capitol in Washington, DC on Tuesday (October 12).

The 49-year-old actor/humanitarian was joined by Sen. Richard Lugar and human rights activist John Prendergast as he spent the evening talking about the plight of the people of the impoverished African nation.

Gorgeous George recently returned from Sudan, and is asking the U.S. and world community to use international pressure and robust diplomacy to prevent violence ahead of the January 9 election.

The election is an independence referendum on south Sudan that is likely to split the country in two, and there are fears that the vote could lead to a new outbreak of north-south civil war.

Following his meeting with President Barack Obama, George told reporters: “At a time that is one of the most politicized times ever, this is something that everyone agrees on: If there’s some way to get ahead of this and stop it before it happens, we better.”

The civil war, in which nearly 2 million people died, was one of the bloodiest of the second half of the 20th century.



  1. I can’t believe that George would continue to connect himself to this administration.
