George Clooney Launched on Carnaby Street!
Madame Tussauds London caused a pre-Valentine’s Day stir on the 13th February, when we took A-list actor George Clooney onto the streets of London to give fans a sneak preview of his brand new wax figure.
Seated on a leather sofa, suited and booted in superstar style, the much admired silver fox got hearts racing and showed just why he topped a recent poll* declaring him the most desirable Valentine’s Day date.
“We are constantly seeking our guests views and opinions and we recently asked them which celebrity they would most like to have a Valentine’s date with,” explains Madame Tussauds PR Manager, Nicole Fenner. “There was a very clear winner with Mr Clooney scoring far more votes than anyone else, so we decided to make some of his fans dreams come true with a pre-Valentine’s Day date with our gorgeous George. This is a brand new wax figure that has yet to make its debut in the attraction, so the people here on Carnaby Street are the very first to get up close to it - and judging by the response it looks like he’s got the seal of approval.”
"He looks so lifelike I feel like I'm cuddling up to the real George Clooney!"
Clooney polled double the votes of desirable date number two, Prince Harry, with Twilight actor Robert Pattinson in third, Clooney’s best friend, Brad Pitt, in fourth and the ultimate British gentleman, Colin Firth, in fifth. The top five most dateable females were Angelina Jolie, Cheryl Cole, Kate Winslet, Beyonce and the timeless Helen Mirren.
One of the first to take to Clooney’s sofa was 24 year old passer-by Claudia Parker from London. Seizing the opportunity to sit alongside the eternal bachelor she said, “This has been a great pre-Valentine’s Day treat to sit down with one of Hollywood’s heartthrobs – he looks so lifelike I feel like I’m cuddling up to the real George Clooney!”
Clooney’s figure will be at the Baker Street attraction from Valentines Day – 14th February.
*Guests were asked to select their top Valentine’s Day date from a list of leading men and women, some of who are already featured at Madame Tussauds London.
