Happy birthday George Clooney! The newly engaged actor is still looking good at 53. George was born in Lexington, Kentucky on May 6, 1961 to Nina Bruce, a city councilwoman, and Nick Clooney, a former anchorman and game show host. After finding success on the television show ER, Clooney transitioned to the big screen as the star of several box office hits. His work behind the scenes has also brought him plenty of award recognition. Fun fact: George is the only person to ever be nominated for Academy Awards in six categories.
