‘Not to Let Hate Win’: Clooney gets political at Caesar Awards

LOS ANGELES, Feb 25:  Actor George Clooney, who received an honour at Caesar Awards, took a dig at President Donald Trump in his acceptance speech, saying “as citizens of the world, we’re going to have to work harder and harder not to let hate win.”

The 55-year-old star along with Jean Paul Belmondo, was felicitated with a career award, at the French film ceremony in Paris and he could not resist using the occasion to speak out against the “hate” and “fear” promulgated by Trump, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Thanking the French Academy and speaking about his “fascination” for the French cinema, Clooney quickly switched to politics, saying, “As we stand here today the world is going through some pretty momentous changes, not all for the best.”

He added, “love Trumps hate, courage Trumps fear and always right Trump’s wrongs.”

Clooney then addressed his wife Amal, who was seated in the audience, saying how “excited he is about the years, and especially the months, to come,” in allusion to the twins they are expecting this June.

“To my wife Amal, there isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not proud to be your husband. And I am excited about the years to come, and particularly the months to come. I love you very much,” he said. (PTI)
