As one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors, George Clooney has no shortage of options when it comes to securing a date. However, it could be you by his side at the upcoming "Monuments Men" premiere.
That's because the 52-year-old is auctioning off a date with himself for the Feb. 4 red carpet event in Manhattan. And through a $10 donation on charity site Omaze, you will be entered to win. That's right — it's only $10 to throw your hat in the ring. (And the more entries you buy, the cheaper it gets.)
Being the Oscar winner's date at a premiere is exciting enough, but the winner gets even more Clooney time. Along with a friend, the lucky lady or gent flies to the Big Apple and accompanies him to "Late Show With David Letterman," where they'll hang backstage as part of his entourage while he's interviewed by Dave. Then, they'll ride to the premiere together in style, walk the red carpet, and sit with him in the VIP row during the screening of the film, which Clooney directed, wrote, and stars in.
Oh, and the date extends to attending the afterparty as Clooney's special guests. Other talent in the film include Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, and John Goodman, so it will be a star-studded affair.
According to the Omaze website, at the end of the night, the winners will have learned, "How it feels to be the classiest person on the red carpet (by association); what it's like to go out in NYC with the ultimate man's man, ladies' man, and all around man; AND George may even share how he masterfully pranks super star buddies like Brad Pitt."
Clooney, who's single since splitting with Stacy Keibler over the summer, is doing this to benefit Satellite Sentinel Project, which is an organization that reports on the state of the conflict in the border regions between Sudan and South Sudan via satellite imagery. (The war-torn country has long been a close to the megastar's heart.)
The contest ends on Jan. 30. And, who knows? The winner may have so much fun with Clooney that they could become part of his inner circle. Next spring, they could be with him in Lake Como skinny-dipping along with the rest of his A-list pals.
How's that for $10 well spent?
