Oscar-winning actor, producer, director and humanitarian George Clooney wowed a packed audience at the Brown Theatre, Wortham Center as the guest speaker of The Brilliant Lecture Series, Conversations with Brilliance in downtown Houston on May 3, 2012.
During a question and answer style interview by Houston philanthropist and Brilliant Lecture Series Chairman Emeritus Lynn Wyatt, Clooney presented a charismatic performance on the topics of his personal life, childhood, career and humanitarian efforts. This was the first time he has spoken in this format in North America.
As the celebrated actor approaches his 51st birthday, the audience sang an early “Happy Birthday” to him along with a trumpet serenade. Concluding the program, Clooney took questions from Brilliant Lecture Series students including one from a Darfurian refugee dressed in native attire.
