Touted beforehand as “the most charismatic actor of his generation,” the Ocean’s Eleven star and his wife Amal, pregnant with their twins, brought Hollywood glamour to Paris at the Salle Pleyel on Friday. Dressed in his signature black Armani tuxedo and bow tie, Clooney looked dashing next to his wife, who showed off her baby bump in a fitted white gown tapered with an ombré of ostrich feathers.

The father-to-be was honored with a career award at the ceremony, along with French film legend Jean Paul Belmondo, who also received a Lifetime Tribute during the evening.

After a lengthy clip real of his greatest hits, Clooney was called onstage by host Jerome Commandeur. Greeted with a standing ovation, Clooney thanked the crowd saying, “Merci, merci” several times. Commandeur then invited Oscar winner Jean Dujardin, Clooney’s Monuments Men costar, to present him with the César d’Honneur. The former costars embraced, and Clooney, excusing himself to the audience for his “horrible” French, asked Dujardin to translate for him.

Taking a break from promoting his latest film, “Hail, Caesar!,” in Germany, George Clooney and his wife, Amal Clooney, paid a visit to Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday.  The actor-activist and the human-rights attorney sat down for a private meeting with Merkel to discuss the crisis in Syria and Europe’s efforts to help the Middle Eastern nation’s refugees, the Associated Press reported. They talked about “the responsibilities of all states, not just European states but states around the world, to deal with what is a global problem, not just a Syrian problem or a German issue,” said former British foreign secretary David Miliband, who now helms the International Rescue Committee aid group and joined the couple for the 40-minute sit-down.

Rande Gerber: I show up at motels unannounced with George Clooney and we often share a room
Cindy Crawford’s husband and multi-millionaire entrepreneur Rande Gerber tells Bryony Gordon about making tequila with George Clooney
Rande Gerber, husband of Cindy Crawford and business partner of George Clooney, has apparently been drinking all afternoon. Tequila, to be precise. “It’s normal,” explains his PR. “You’ll have to drink some too.”

We are in the glamorous confines of the Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge, and it has only just gone 4pm. Would it be rude to request a coffee, a tea, or some water, perhaps, instead? And will Rande – no sniggering at the back – be rolling around on the floor in a state of inebriation by the time our interview starts? I do hope so.
