      No offense, but you're illustrating your own lack of knowledge here. Besides your own generalization of what celebrity lifestyles are like, what evidence is there that he's those things you describe? And even if he does enjoy the fruits of his stardom, how does that take away from what he says about Brunei? How does that preclude the possibility that he might do a lot more for the underprivileged than any of us can know?

    Apparently he does spend his own money on helping people in the Sudan, so he gets credit for that. He's not just all talk. Also, since he's actually doing something over there, I'm interested in what he has to say about the region. So Clooney's an exception. It seems he actually does Wayne up.





Well this is kind of a different beast though, in the sense that it illustrates one of the ways people might become misinformed. In that context I agree; ignore what celebrities say and assess information to form your own opinions.

But thinking celebrities should keep their views to themselves, and assuming they're Martinis-sipping elitists who only virtue signal, are two different things.
