    George Clooney contracted malaria during a trip to Sudan earlier this month, but is now fully cured, his spokesperson said. Clooney, 49, visits the war-torn country often and feels that his contraction of the disease serves to educate the world about health care. Oh George, you martyr!

    "George is completely over the malaria he contracted while in the Sudan during the first week in January," his spokesman said in a statement. "This was his second bout with it. This illustrates how with proper medication, the most lethal condition in Africa, can be reduced to a bad ten days instead of a death sentence." Okay, he's right. Pay attention, people.

    What do you think of George Clooney's offscreen activities? I think he fucking rules.
