Clooney tops two end-of-year honours
GEORGE CLOONEY has two extra good reasons to celebrate this holiday season - he has scored two big wins on Parade magazine's end-of-year honours list.
The popular U.S. supplement asked readers to vote in a range of quirky categories, including most surprising celebrity split of the year and celebrity you would most like to kiss under the mistletoe.
In the poll, surprisingly Patrick Swayze's death saddened readers more than Michael Jackson's this year - by almost twice as many votes - and Jennifer Aniston beat former love rival Angelina Jolie to the top spot on the list of female celebrities readers would most like to kiss - by more than double the vote.
