George and Amal Clooney visit his Kentucky hometown for family reunion
He's one of the most famous actors in the world, but George Clooney hasn't forgotten where he came from.
The Oscar-winner brought his wife of one year, human rights lawyer Amal, to his hometown of Augusta in Kentucky, for a family reunion.
They spent their whistle stop trip to the South visiting his old school, Augusta High School, where he played a game of basketball and dined at Caprioni's on the River. Fans of the Gravity star documented their small town activities on social media, with one lucky fan who nabbed a series of photos, praising Amal.
"Amal is so friendly and nice," she captioned a photo of the pair.
They later posed for photos at the Augusta Pub and stopped by Magee's Bakery before enjoying a private family function.
Bakery owner Russsell Dickson said the star pops in once a year during a visit home to get his favourite sweet treat, the Transparent Tart.
"They were fun as a couple," he told Us Weekly. "'They ordered the Transparent, that’s his thing, he loves the Transparent.
"His family has been a customer for years, so I kind of half grew up with him always hanging around the bakery. He stops in maybe once a year or so."
