George shows off unshaven look
George Clooney showed off his beard as he stepped out at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.
The Hollywood star, who nabbed the Best Actor gong for his roles in Up In The Air and Fantastic Mr Fox, attended the star-studded ceremony with girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis.
Asked about what he is letting go of this year, he told Entertainment Tonight: "Shaving, clearly!"
The heartthrob said of the awards: "It's fun. I've sort of been around it a couple of times so I sort of know what to do and what not to do, and what to expect.
"So every time they're nice to you, you just say, 'Thank you', and remember when they're not nice to you," he added.
Meryl Streep won best actress for her portrayal of chef Julia Child in the film Julie & Julia, while Mo'Nique (Precious) and Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) won best supporting actress and actor respectively at the New York-based awards, seen as a precursor to the Oscars in February.
