George Clooney has certainly been busy over the past few months, making regular red carpet appearances with stunning new girlfriend Stacy Keibler. Their latest walk in front of the paparazzi came at the 15th Annual Film Awards in Beverly Hills where Clooney picked up the prestigious 'Hollywood Actor Of The Year Award', reports The UK's Sun newspaper.
Keibler was looking elegant in a "strapless purple dress, complete with a transparent skirt" but just as George appears to have gotten a good deal, the the 32 year-old former WWE wrestler's getting a fair bit out of the relationship too. Fox News reports that Keibler's appearance fee has gone up dramatically since she started dating the much-loved actor and director, with a source reveling that such an occurrence is "because they [event organizers] hope George might show up." It's rumoured that the ascending star's actual fee has risen to $25,000 - with one programmer saying that she'd reneged on an initial agreement of $10,000 following several appearances with Clooney - though no representative from her party has agreed to give comment.
Clooney was picking up the award for his appearance in 'The Descendants,' and joins an illustrious list of former winners including Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks and LEONARDO DI CAPRIO.
