Celebrities always create a buzz on Capitol Hill – there is always a big influx of photographers who come out of the woodwork when a celebrity is involved. So yesterday when George Clooney came to town, I fully expected it to be a challenging – push and shove photographer bash. Luckily all the photographers kept their cool – but there was certainly a noticeable buzz among the ladies on the hill. The abnormal amount of women standing in line to get into the hearing was the first thing I noticed. Then I got a kick out of the excessive smiling and silent mouthing of a scream when i noticed some ladies set their eyes on Mr. Clooney’s name plate in the hearing room.
Following the hearing, I noticed a few ladies step up to the table where Mr. Clooney testified, to take photos of his seat / name plate, etc. — I was just waiting for one of them to pick up his left-over glass of water and finish it off!
Capitol Hill is usually full of smart, strong, independent, confident women who work there — but yesterday George Clooney managed to turn all of these women into giddy little school girls.
Here were some of my photos — try not to let them make you weak in the knees.
