Actor George Clooney told the Guardian that he had once turned down $35 million for a single day’s work. The offer, he said, was to appear in an airline commercial.
“I was offered $35 million for one day’s work for an airline commercial,” Clooney told The Guardian in a lengthy interview published on Friday.
“But I talked to Amal [Clooney’s wife, the international human rights lawyer he married in 2014] about it and we decided it’s not worth it,” explained Clooney, who said their decision came due to the airline being associated with “a country that, although it’s an ally, is questionable at times.”
“So I thought: ‘Well, if it takes a minute’s sleep away from me, it’s not worth it,’” the actor said.
Amal Clooney was one of the attorney advocating for Armenia in a case regarding the Armenian Genocide that was heard in the European Court of Human Rights in 2016.
While he did not mention the airline by name, its highly presumed that the company in question was Turkish Airlines, with the Turkish government owning a major stake of it.
To promote its airlines, Turkey paid millions of dollars to U.S. celebrities to become spokespeople for its brand.
His attorney (or former attorney) is responsible in part for denial of the Armenian Genocide being part of American Jewish history. This is called ‘damage control’.
Who is his attorne?
The shark in Jaws is named after him Harut.
He represents Spielberg and Eastwood also. And, he did this all while living in town with us.
A member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council and friend of former FBI director Louis Freeh, Ramer has been deeply concerned about terrorism since the early 1990s, long before the twin towers went down. His commitment to community causes so energizes him, he says, that he is much more productive than he might otherwise be.
The Aurora presentation by Clooney was also damage control.

Some of ours will sleep with the enemies wife for their own professional benefit. Doing the right thing?
Is that like when you claim to be anti-Genocide while lining the pockets of a Genocide denier who happens to be your attorney. Esrailian is friends with Clooney’s wife. Puhleeze. We are eating ourselves because we have no self-respect
More damage control. Look see my wife has an Armenian friend. Eshachoon ban.
We are being lead to our demise by odars assisted by our own.
Either allow my whole posts or don’t allow them. The piecemeal picking what posts or what portions of posts is not editorially sound as it omits my position or alters it. It’s not fair or ethical. So stop. Esh.
Law firms withdraw funding from theater production over the name of a fictional character who is rich but not Jewish but has a Jewish name. But Jewish attorneys who engaged in denial of the Armenian Genocide for Israel and Turkey get walk the corridors of American power and accept political appointments with their bar cards. Compare and contrast. Abe Foxman, Bruce Ramer to name two.
You could argue Clooney’s marriage to Amal an “international human rights attorney” was damage control also after being represented in Hollywood by a Genocide Denier for decades.
Esrailian works for UCLA Geffen School of Medicine.
C’mon man. Have some self-respect. You work for a school named after a man whose mentor and good friend was none other than Ahmet Ertegun, a notorious Genocide denier and son of Turkish diplomat.

Hai Tahd in the United States has accomplished nothing accept people knowing we died and thus no longer considering we are here such that when we are discriminated against or offended it is not newsworthy. How many more resolutions recognizing the Armenian Genocide or movies about the event do we need before Hayastan is lost for good. We got words from our leaders while at the same time our leaders provided our enemies money and weapons to be used against us. Without our future, our past will become a footnote and nothing more. #Tekfurdağı
