Haute 100 LA Update: George Clooney Spends Nespresso Paycheck on Spy Satellite


How does George Clooney spend his cash? Hint, it’s not on bare living essentials.

In fact, the 52-year-old actor revealed that he’s spending “most” of the money he earns from appearing in Nespressocommercials on a spy satellite.

“Most of the money I make on the [Nespresso] commercials I spend keeping a satellite over the border of North and South Sudan to keep an eye on Omar al-Bashir [the Sudanese dictator charged with war crimes at The Hague]. Then he puts out a statement saying that I’m spying on him and how would I like it if a camera was following me everywhere I went and I go ‘well welcome to my life Mr War Criminal’. I want the war criminal to have the same amount of attention that I get. I think that’s fair, ” the Gravity star clarified to the UK’s The Guardian newspaper.

Clooney’s Satellite Sentinel Project tracks the movements of Sudan’s army and attempts to warn civilians pre-attack.

The A-list actor does more than put his money where his mouth is: he was even arrested in a protest at the Sudanese embassy in Washington D.C. last March.
