29 of 42: George Clooney is a Democrat. Since 2007, he has donated at least $92,000 to Democratic causes. He has already contributed at least $35,000 to President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.

Earlier this year, Clooney starred in the politically-charged film 'The Ides of March.'

In the fall of 2011, when asked at a Venice Film Festival event to promote the movie whether he had any interest in running for office himself, the actor said: 'As for running for president, look, there's a guy in office right now who is smarter than almost anyone you know, who's nicer and who has more compassion than almost anyone you know. And he's having an almost impossible time governing. Why would anybody volunteer for that job?'

'I have a really good job,' Clooney added. 'I get to hang out with very seductive people. So I have no interest.'
