    George Clooney Has Apparently Been Cutting His Hair With A Flowbee For 25 Years

    A man of even more talents than we previously thought.

    We can also add "practical king" to his long list of accomplishments, according to his latest interview.


    Speaking with CBS Sunday Morning, he talked about life in quarantine, including the fact that he's been cutting his own hair — though that has nothing to do with the lockdown.

    Yep, that's right. Academy Award–winning, presumably very wealthy famous person George Clooney cuts his own hair with something called a Flowbee.

    Hair by Flowbee.

    This is what they look like.


    Flowbees have been around since the 1980s.

    A lot of people loved hearing something so relatable about one of the most famous people in the world, while others resented the fact that this man manages to look so good while cutting his hair with what is essentially a vacuum cleaner.

    @goldengateblond For looking that good with nothing more than a friggin' ancient Flowbee, God—and I cannot stress this enough—damn him.

    "Flowbee" became a trending topic on Twitter.

    We can neither confirm nor deny the use of a Flowbee on the set of #TheMidnightSky.

    The Midnight Sky is George's new movie, which he directs and stars in.

    But George didn't only talk about his hair. He also talked about his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, and I was once again reminded of what a perfect couple they are.

    "There is no question that having Amal in my life changed everything for me," he said. "It was the first time that everything that she did and everything about her was infinitely more important than anything about me."

    BRB, crying.

    The pair got engaged in 2014; but according to George, they didn't ever plan on getting married.

    "We never talked about marriage when we were dating," George said. "I asked her out of the blue, [and it] took her a long time to say yes. I was on my knee for like 20 minutes. I finally said, 'Look, I'm gonna throw my hip out.'"

    Obviously, Amal said yes and now they have twins Ella and Alexander, an experience he calls "unbelievable."

    Look at these two beautiful, accomplished people laughing together.

    All in all, congratulations to George Clooney for leading what seems to be a really lovely life. And congratulations to Flowbee, since their stock has very likely gone up.
