The Duchess of Sussex is being vilified for just “living her life”, George Clooney has said, as he labels criticism of her “unfair”.
The Hollywood star previously launched an outspoken defence of Meghan, comparing her treatment with that of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Now he has told Good Morning Britain why he wanted to speak up for “a really kind, smart and intelligent young woman”.
“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 she hadn’t done anything except just happen to live her life,” the actor told the ITV show.
Clooney, who is a new friend of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and attended their wedding with his wife Amal last year, said: “She’s a really kind and smart and intelligent young woman 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,” the actor said, calling the media coverage “unfair”.
