Kimberly Potts, author of George Clooney: The Last Great Movie Star, talks about her revealing biography of the Oscar-winning actor. Before the end of 2013, Clooney will be appearing in two upcoming films already receiving Oscar buzz – Gravity and The Monuments Men – so another look at his impressive career as an actor and director seems quite timely. A discussion of Clooney’s latest projects will follow Potts’ taped interview.

Potts, an entertainment/pop culture writer, has written several books, including Everything I Need To Know I Learned from a Chick Flick. She’s also contributed such outlets as TV Guide, US Weekly, Inside TV, E! Online, and Daily Variety.

In her well-researched biography of Clooney, Potts presents fascinating details and behind-the-scenes information about the man she calls “The Last Great Movie Star.” After taking readers back to Clooney’s early years, Potts then explains how this small-town boy used his good looks, charm and personal ethics on his journey to becoming a serious actor, writer, producer, director and humanitarian. She also explores Clooney’s outspoken nature, his concern for others, and his involvement in important causes.
