George Clooney: super stalker

George Clooney is many things. His prolific career in film and television has earned him awards and recognition as both an actor and a filmmaker. Clooney is also an activist for various causes, from gay rights to Obama’s election. What some people might not know is that he is also the co-founder SSP, the Satellite Sentinel Project dedicated to the monitoring of the border of Sudan and South Sudan.

SSP is funded by Clooney’s Nespresso commercials, as The Guardian reports. “Most of the money I make on the Nespresso commercials I spend keeping a satellite over the border of North and South Sudan to keep an eye on Omar al-Bashir,” Clooney explains, referring to the Sudanese dictator charged with war crimes. “He puts out a statement saying that I’m spying on him and how would I like it if a camera was following me everywhere I went and I go, ‘Well, welcome to my life, Mr. War Criminal.’ I want the war criminal to have the same amount of attention that I get. I think that’s fair.”
