Before George Clooney was an A-list, Academy Award-winning actor with Armani on call to make him a tux on demand, the 56-year-old new dad to twins Alexander and Ella was just a struggling actor trying to make ends meet by selling insurance door-to-door.
At a certain point in the Kentucky-born actor’s life, Clooney was so broke, he couldn’t even afford to buy a tie. So the star decided to take things into his own crafty hands and make his own.
