London Mayor Told George Clooney To Mind His Own Business



There’s a reason why actors are not politicians and vice versa, and it might be time for George Clooney to learn it. Clooney recently got into a debate over the notorious Elgin Marbles that caused one of the most powerful people in London, Mayor Boris Johnson, to speak up.

During the promotion of his new movie The Monuments Men, Clooney thought it would be smart to make himself heard on the Greek treasure collection that’s kept at the British Museum, after being taken from Athens in the 1800s.

In his movie, Clooney portrays an art expert in search for masterpieces that were stolen by Nazis during World War II. However, it seems the Hollywood actor pushed it too far when he urged UK leaders to hand over the stolen marble sculptures back to Greece, believing it will end centuries of tensions.

On the other hand, London’s leading politician Johnson doesn’t share Clooney’s opinion.
“Someone urgently needs to restore George Clooney’s marbles. Here he is plugging a film about looted Nazi art without realising that Nazi politician Hermann Goring himself had plans to plunder the British Museum,” Johnson told Britain’s Daily Telegraph.

He added, “And where were the Nazis going to send the Elgin marbles? To Athens?! He (Clooney) should stuff the Hollywood script and stick to history.”
