As "August: Osage County" begins filming in northeastern Oklahoma, people are experiencing their "brush with fame" occasionally, and George Clooney is proving to be quite the man about town.
Clooney is the producer of the film, and he was on the set Monday at Jane Phillips Hospital in Bartlesville where unknown scenes were being filmed, with unknown actors.
But now we know that Clooney was in the building, as well as outside of the building, which is where these photos were taken.
Some of the locals noticed Clooney, asked if he would be willing to pose for a photo with them, and he obliged. Very classy for a man who was probably in the middle of a 16-hour shooting day.
Bailey and Brady Roper met Clooney in Bartlesville, and so did Sharon Webster and her daughter, outside of Jane Phillips Hospital.
"My daughter and I were at the Jane Phillips Hospital when George Clooney walked by and we asked him if he minded taking a picture with us and he said sure, he was very nice," Webster said in an email. "I asked how about all 3 of us and he said OK so I tried to work the camera phone to take all 3 of us and he said laughingly your gonna screw it up. ha ha ya it didnt work and I was so (giddy) I couldnt take anymore. I am so excited!"
Check out those photos. Doesn't everyone look excited? By the way, Clooney spent a good part of his youth in Cincinnati - he even tried out for the Cincinnati Reds baseball team, so that explains the Cincinnati Bengals T-shirt.
"August: Osage County" is shooting in Osage and Washington counties for the next eight weeks.
