I usually frown on celebrities who mix in politics, but as with everything...there is always the exception.

In this case, I'm chuffed to know that they've taken on this cause.

Hollywood Support for Serbia Grows

George Clooney says:

"The daily also notes that George Clooney, in an earlier interview, said that, even though he avidly follows all the world's events, he is given no opportunity to hear the Serbian side too, when it comes to solving the issue of Serbian province's status.

“Serbian lobby is very weak in United States and all one can hear or read comes from [pro-independence] Albanian lobby and lobbyists. I can't hear the other side,” said Clooney." one has wanted to hear the Serbian side.

It's good to know that some people in North America are asking logical questions, and noticing that the media and American government doesn't give a rat's ass about Serbia's "side" on the issue of Kosovo.

Back when De Niro was an unknown American student, he traveled to Serbia and spent, according to his own words, memorable days among the Serbian farmers in a small village in Sumadija.

He named his daughter Drina, after his favorite novel “Bridge on Drina River” by the Serbian writer and Nobel Prize winner Ivo Andric. De Niro is known for his high regard for Serbian people, also reflected in his choice of staff mostly comprised of Serbs — from the nanny and gardeners, to horse-trainers and private security guards.
