This includes being involved in ‘not on our watch project’ which is an organization whose main aim is to get global attention and resources in order to prevent mass atrocities. This followed by the likes of Brad Pitt and Don Cheadle joining in alongside other celebrities. Clooney also established the fundraiser ‘hope for Haiti now’ in 2010. This was particularly tremendously beneficial due to the donations made for the Haiti earthquake casualties.

What does it all display about Clooney overall?

It is clear that Clooney’s source of wealth is from decades of his professional acting career. Whilst it may be easy to assume that Clooney partly got to where he is because of his powerful, well-connected father, my opinion differs from this as It is displayed that this is not the case. Clooney’s background didn’t give him the upper hand. He made it merely on his own through his own merits. Hard work and dedication played a key role, so much so that Clooney accumulated a significant amount of profit from participating in different films and series. 

Of course, the upside to having such an interesting career choice is being able to afford luxurious expensive homes that most of us dream of having ownership of. Clooney’s no exception to this as he owns a prestige villa.

Where is Clooney’s villa Located?

The villa is located in Villa Oleandra in Laglio, Italy. The interior design surrounding this massive villa includes a pool, gym, tennis court and things with a range of modern elements as such. The interior itself is very spacious with numerous bedrooms, living rooms and things of that nature. This villa is considered one of the most expensive homes which is no surprise seeing as though it is estimated to be around $ 100million.

Where is Clooney’s six-bedroom mansion?

Clooney is not only in ownership of the villa he has in Italy. Clooney owns a six-bedroom mansion in California. Clooney purchased this in 1995 for roughly less than $1million. It is estimated to be around 7,300 square foot home that he got from Stevie Nicks a former Fleetwood mac star. The interior is another spacious and luxurious one.

It consists of a kitchen with its own personal island, breakfast bar and Clooney’s own office. Clooney acquired this house when he was newly in the spotlight and also famous. This was during the time when he rose to fame during his first few years in ER a medical drama series that lasted for a lengthy amount of time.

He was looking at a large place to buy and it is no coincidence that he chose a mansion that is in the backstreet away from being seen or noticed. He was very particular in selecting this mansion as he wanted some privacy away from the public eye so that paparazzi wouldn’t be around his home and the fans who enjoyed the series, he was starring in.

To conclude, it is well known that celebrities tend to own houses with a great magnitude of interior designs and homes that are expensive in terms of costs. Here we see Clooney a perfect example of this. We also learn that aside from celebrities owning expensive homes the interior itself is what makes the homes expensive.

For example, some of their homes consist of their favourite leisure activities that they love to do and at the same time do not have to travel in order to access. Some of them have gym gear within the vicinity of their homes in order to workout with, cinemas to watch films with without the extra added pressure of other people also watching alongside you.

Furthermore, the advantages of this are it being less noisy and not having to pay all the time to watch your films. These are some of the thing’s celebrities have within their interior homes which in my opinion is a benefit of having.

Overall, this showcases that the homes being expensive isn’t shocking because of all the elements that they entail. Personal designs, various spacious rooms that less be honest can fit around 20 people and this is the downstairs rooms alone without counting the bedrooms. The bedrooms are also very widened, considerably very roomy as well with comfortable mattresses and beds.
