George Clooney may be known for his gags and sense of humor, but this time, the joke’s on him. Even though April Fool’s Day is more than a week away…someone in
Italy felt prankish. According to WWD, a mysterious firm sent out an e-mail Monday
proclaiming that George Clooney was launching a men’s and women’s
fashion brand. Problem is, "this is a hoax," said Clooney.
"This is a hoax," said George Clooney. "I have no connection whatsoever with any clothing line bearing my name, and more specifically, GC Exclusive by George Clooney."
e-mail had been dispatched by Mass Media Distribution LLC, and was full
of red flags. It appeared to be translated poorly from Italian, and
stated the collection would be launched with a fashion show at the
Westin Palace in Milan — not exactly the normal place in the Italian
fashion capital for a show. No date or time was given for the supposed
launch, but the e-mail noted that Clooney would be present.
