  • United Nations 71st Session of the General Debate

The lady who was visited by George Clooney on her 87th birthday has spoken out about meeting the actor.

Lucky Pat Adams had no idea that she would be getting a visit from the silver-haired fox. The actor then turned up unannounced this weekend at the care home, Sunrise of Sonning, clutching the letter which the home had sent to him and carrying flowers for Adams. Staffer Linda Jones posted a pic of herself with Pat and Clooney, who wore a leather jacket and a wide smile.

'We started Wish Upon A Star six months ago and asked residents to let us know what they'd like with the promise we'd try and make their wish come true'. Clooney showed up to her birthday with a bundle of flowers and a card.

The nursing home also thanked the Oscar victor for his visit. "Thanks #GeorgeClooney for visiting #SunriseofSonning and for making Pat, our wonderful resident, so so happy!" the company tweeted on Monday, March 20.

Not only is George Clooney dreamy, but he's a really nice man.

'She was absolutely thrilled to meet her great icon, and it was such a lovely surprise to see George greet her with flowers and a card.

The couple recently confirmed that they were expecting their first children, after Clooney's best friend Mat Damon first revealed the news.
