The Clooney effect: Even Michelle Obama admits George is 'cute'

21 AUGUST 2012

George Clooney's effect on women is well known. And it seems no one is exempt from the the silver fox's charms, not even Michelle Obama.

President Barack Obama's wife was very demonstrative about her fondness for the Hollywood star during an interview given to Entertainment Tonight, twice describing him as "cute".

Receiving a furtive glance from her husband, the First Lady shrugged, saying she was simply stating "fact".

As the most powerful man in the world, Barack can do much to make sure the crush never goes beyond that - like making sure his wife is otherwise occupied when George comes around.

"Michelle is always frustrated because a lot of the events that George has been involved in, for some reason, she has something else going on," he says.

Jokes aside, the US premier hails the actor as "a wonderful guy" and revealed the Obamas' connection with George Clooney is  serious and centres around his humanitarian campaigning in Darfur, Western Sudan.

Their friendship dates back to when Barack was a Senator and the actor championed his cause in congress.

Today, both men continue their solid working relationship, with George often invited to the White House to exchange ideas with the president and attend galas, such as the annual Correspondents' Dinner in Washington .
