George Clooney was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the American Film Institute at a star-studded event in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, Miley Cyrus performed “I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow,” which holds a special place in Clooney’s heart because he lip-synced it in the 2000 Coen brothers film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”. Despite being considerably older than his lawyer wife Amal, the 57-year-old actor and director remains an iconic figure in Hollywood.
George Clooney was recently recognized by the American Film Institute for his impressive contributions to the film industry. The ceremony was held last Thursday and was truly a grand affair. One of the highlights of the event was a musical performance by Miley Cyrus, who was accompanied by a group of male musicians who were dressed in a charming rustic style. Miley looked ravishing in her outfit, which consisted of high-waisted black and white pinstripe pants and an artfully rumpled white shirt that was tucked in. She left a few buttons undone to show off her lovely necklaces and styled her blonde hair in a way that complimented her face. To complete the look, she donned a pageboy cap.
According to the American Film Institute’s Twitter, Miley Cyrus recently sang “I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow” at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
George, who is currently 57 years old, happens to be 17 years older than his gorgeous wife Amal, who works as a lawyer. Recently, George delighted his fans by miming the words to a song from his 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou? directed by the Coen brothers.
Miley Cyrus rocked the stage with a gang of male musicians garbed in western-style gear. The singer donned a pair of chic black and white pinstripe high-waisted pants, completing her standout look.
A fashionable young woman donned a casually undone white shirt, neatly tucked in with some open buttons to flaunt her array of necklaces. Behind the scenes, she was seen rubbing elbows with the renowned Bill Murray, who had appeared alongside George in three box office hits – The Monuments Men, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and A Very Murray Christmas. Miley and Bill were spotted relishing a glass of refreshing lemon iced drinks while seated next to a table that held a bottle of Belvedere vodka. They were also photographed enjoying the company of two beloved TV personalities, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, who both starred in the immensely popular Friends sitcom of the 90s.
The blonde-haired daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus had a stylish way of wearing her hair – she pulled back only some of it and let the rest fall around her face. For an added touch of trendiness, she wore a pageboy cap to complete her effortless look.
While backstage, Swank was seen engaged in conversation with Bill Murray. The two have appeared in multiple films together, including The Monuments Men, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and A Very Murray Christmas.
Back in 2015, the talented director Sofia Coppola (who also happens to be an Academy Award winner and the daughter of Francis Ford Coppola) directed the movie musical A Very Murray Christmas, which was co-written by Bill. Interestingly, George has a close relationship with Brad Pitt – the actor who famously left Jennifer to marry Angelina Jolie after their five-year marriage. It’s worth noting that both Jennifer and George have appeared as themselves in the 1998 film Waiting For Woody, which was directed by George’s frequent collaborator, Grant Heslov. Despite working together on several movies (including the Ocean’s trilogy), Brad wasn’t seen at the AFI tribute honoring George on Thursday evening.

Four people were photographed hanging out with two famous TV stars, namely Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox. These two actresses played lead roles in the beloved 90s sitcom, Friends.
On Thursday evening, George was honored at the AFI tribute event, where his former Ocean’s trilogy co-star Brad Pitt was notably absent. In 2009, Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox brought Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book to life through animation. The Monuments Men, a 2014 World War II drama film that George directed and co-wrote, was inspired by a nonfiction book of the same name that chronicled an Allied mission to recover significant artifacts from Nazi hands. Oscar-winning screenwriter Sofia Coppola, daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, directed the 2015 movie musical A Very Murray Christmas, which Bill Murray co-wrote. Dating back to 1913, I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow is a classic American folk song originally published by a blind travelling fiddler named Dick Burnett. The song has been recorded by numerous musicians over the years, including The Stanley Brothers, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez who have each put their own unique spin on it.

How about we have a chat regarding Miley Cyrus and her musical works? I’d like to mention “It,” a track that’s been performed by numerous artists, such as The Stanley Brothers, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez.
In the popular film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, George’s character joins forces with two fellow inmates to form a musical ensemble labeled The Soggy Bottom Boys. Their recording of a particular song quickly skyrocketed in popularity and success. However, despite what many may believe, George, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson did not lend their own voices to the track. Instead, the vocals were provided by a talented group consisting of Dan Tyminski, Harley Allen, and Pat Enwright. This powerful rendition of a century-old tune even earned a Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration With Vocals. Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus, who is currently engaged to Liam Hemsworth, has yet to win a Grammy herself, despite receiving a nomination in the Best Pop Vocal Album category for her 2013 release, Bangerz.
Here’s a fun fact for you: The singing in that particular scene wasn’t actually done by George, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson. Surprising, right? Dan Tyminski, Harley Allen, and Pat Enwright provided the voices instead.
Dan, Harley, and Pat deserve a round of applause for their outstanding rendition of the classic melody that has been around for 100 years. Their performance was so exceptional that it earned them the highly coveted Grammy Award for the Best Country Collaboration with Vocals.
