Clooney Reveals Bout with Malaria
George Clooney survived a rather scary experience during a recent trip to Africa. A rep for the Academy Award winner tells "Us" magazine that Clooney is returning to good health after beating his second stint with malaria. The rep states, quote, "George is completely over the Malaria he contracted while in the Sudan during the first week in January." Clooney also discussed the incident, saying his situation is proof that "proper medication" can reduce a potentially deadly disease to a "bad ten days." Clooney also joked about his illness during a taping of CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight," saying, quote, "I guess the mosquito in Juba looked at me and thought I was the bar." Tune in to CNN tonight at 9:00 p.m. Eastern to watch George Clooney's entire interview.
