George Clooney Reveals Secret Hobby Of Making Shoes
George Clooney admitted to his deepest, darkest secret not many fans know about him during a revealing Reddit Ask Me Anything session this week; he loves shoes.
Clooney revealed that not only does he love shoes, but he has a hobby of making shoes in his free time, according to People.
“I’m a cobbler, I like to make shoes,” he said in response to a fan’s question of ‘what is a hobby of yours that most people don’t know about?’
Not many people know that Clooney’s friend, actor Daniel Day Lewis, is also a cobbler. When asked if he or Daniel Day-Lewis is a better cobbler, his answer was “When Daniel Day-Lewis was spending all his time playing Lincoln, I was just fixing shoes. He’s spending all the time focused on the hat, and the pipe, and getting into character, and I remained focused – with the overalls and the hammer.”
Clooney revealed many more tidbits during his AMA session with fans, including one time he beat Leonardo DiCaprio in a game of basketball, his longtime friendship with Sandra Bullock, and the ongoing prank wars between him and buddy Brad Pitt.
When his time was up answering questions, Clooney wrote to fans, “I’ve got to get back to filming so I can continue to support my passion for cobbling. I appreciate you taking the time to talk – this was lot of fun.”
