Oscar-winning actor, producer, director and humanitarian George Clooney wowed audiences during this year’s The Brilliant Lecture Series, Conversations with Brilliance. During a question and answer style interview by Houston socialite and Brilliant Lecture Series Chairman Emeritus Lynn Wyatt, Clooney presented a charismatic performance and revealed a warm, witty and candid personality as he openly discussed his personal life, childhood, career and humanitarian efforts. After, a lucky few celebrated during a smaller affair held at Becca Cason Thrash’s home. Dressed in their black-tie finest, guests were greeted with Dom Perignon and swept into the silent auction room where bidding ensued. The who’s who of Houston mingled around the lavishly decorated indoor pool where Clooney took photos and held personal conversations with guests before saying adieu.
