Hollywood megastar George Clooney paid a visit to SocialBites in Edinburgh, and people just couldn't handle...
Never has one man’s sandwich stop been as exciting an event as when George Clooney popped by a Scottish cafe earlier today.
The megastar actor sent the internet into a right old tiz as he popped into the SocialBites sandwich shop in Edinburgh.
The cafe is a social enterprise that donates all of its profits to charity, and where one in four staff members across its five outlets in Scotland used to be homeless.
During George’s visit, he spent time talking and snapping selfies with the cafe’s staff, as well as enjoying lunch with one lucky competition winner.
He also donated to a scheme that allows customers to buy a hot drink or food for a homeless person to claim later in the day.
WHAT. A. GUY.
A throng of people gathered on the street outside the cafe, hoping to catch a glimpse of the superstar – and they weren’t disappointed, as George posed for pictures and greeted the excited crowd.
His visit also sent the internet into meltdown, with lots of Twitter users tweeting their love for the generous Hollywood hunk…
Some lamented their geographical location…
There was also a lot of bemusement about speculation over whether George did or did not buy a sandwich (we like to imagine he’s a BLT kinda guy, personally)…
For some, the visit even sparked intense family jealousy…
George was invited to visit the charitable cafe by founder, Josh Littlejohn, who said: ‘George is an incredible guy, someone who has achieved real global fame but thinks nothing of visiting a local sandwich shop to chat to the workers and discuss the issue of homelessness.
‘He was delighted to spend time with some of our formerly homeless staff and hear the stories of how they have transformed their lives through full-time work.
‘The fact that he not only sampled the food himself, but also pre-paid meals for homeless people to claim later made it extra special.’
Oh George, how we love you!
