Clooney: My Being Here Makes It Popular

It seems George Clooney's ego knows no bounds. He attributes an increase in tourism, along with a plan to build parking lots and a promenade on the beach in Laglio, Italy (off Lake Como), to his owning a villa there.

"My concern is that this village that has stood for hundreds of years would be destroyed simply because I happened to have lived there for the last six years. I told my neighbors that I would do what they wanted. And it seemed that they didn't want to demolish the harbor where all the local fishermen keep their boats," Clooney said.

He's participating in a protest against the project. If he really thinks his presence is contributing to the unpopular development, why doesn't he sell the villa and stop spending time in Laglio?

But then, that would require sacrifice on Clooney's part...something many pampered celebs aren't particularly good at.

Mr. Popularity!

He's an asshat. A gorgeous one, but an asshat nonetheless. Why does it have to work that way?

This confirms the ancient saying that the size of a man's ego can be ascertained by the length of his chin.
