George Clooney Is Defending His Friend Meghan Markle Again

George Clooney is speaking out again to defend his friend Meghan Markle, who has faced some unfair criticism in the press ever since she started dating Prince Harry.

The 57-year-old actor and filmmaker spoke out during an interview on Good Morning Britain this week.

“I think it’s a little unfair at times when – I’ve seen it when the press can turn on you for sort of ridiculous reasons and for almost nothing, and it seemed to me to be a little unjust since [Meghan] hadn’t done anything except just happen to live her life,” he said. “She’s a really kind and smart and intelligent young women and they’re a really wonderful, loving couple.”

“Most of it you can just shrug off and not pay attention to, but sometimes it’s unkind,” he concluded.

George previously opened up about how Meghan is being “pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was.”
