DOWNTON ABBEY – George Clooney’s appearance on a special edition of Downton Abbey is a highly anticipated television event but it was revealed today that he took the opportunity ‘to have it off’ with Dame Maggie Smith, AKA Professor McGonagall from the Harry Potter films.
Apparently the two actors were amorous right from the get go. A cast member who preferred not to be named (it was Hugh Bonneville) told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
They were all over each other at the script reading. First it was him fetching her pastries and coffee from the cart and the next thing you know they are locking lips and groping each other in broad daylight. Julian Fellowes got quite exasperated and told them to get a room, which they promptly did.
The ITV costume drama was thrown into complete disarray by the cavorting couple, who would even get down to some serious heavy duty petting between takes. During a lunch break the two were caught in Flagrante, a small village near the location, having tea.
Mr. Clooney, who is married to Amal Alamuddin, was unapologetic about his behavior.
‘I’m a swinger,’ he said. ‘We’re all sophisticated adults. We’ve all been round the block. Some of us more than once. Ha ha ha!’
