George Clooney Admits He’s a Big Fan of Miley Cyrus

We’ll bet that you’ve never put George Clooney and Miley Cyrus in the same sentence together, but believe it or not they have a few things in common, and the actor happens to be a big fan of the 22-year-old!

Met Gala 2015: Miley Cyrus

After Clooney was spotted chatting with the pop star at the Met Gala earlier this week, everyone wanted to know what they could have possibly talked about.

“Well, let me tell you something: I worked with Miley Cyrus,” Clooney explained to Access Hollywood. “Bill Murray has a Christmas special coming out next Christmas, and I ride in a sleigh with Miley Cyrus, pulled by The Rockettes, I think, or something like that.”

He added that they have a Kentucky history together — both he and Billy Ray Cyrus were born in Kentucky — and he’s gotten to know her over the years.

“She was fantastic to work with, I’m telling you like fantastic and fun and a real pro,” Clooney continued. “And Bill Murray and I had drinks a few nights ago, and he was just talking about how impressed he was as an entertainer and also just as a — just in general as a pro, how professional she was. I really liked her.”

Bravo, Miley! That’s a huge support person to have in her corner.
