HOLLYWOOD star George Clooney has spoken out about media treatment of Meghan Markle, saying she has been ‘vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was’.
The actor, who attended Ms Markle’s wedding to Prince Harry last May, said that his friend was being subjected to irresponsible treatment,
In an interview with Australia’s Who magazine, Clooney said: “They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified.”
He added: “She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was and its history repeating itself.
“We’ve seen how that ends. I can’t tell you how frustrating that is, just seeing them broadcast a letter from a daughter to a father, she’s getting a raw deal there and I think it’s irresponsible and I’m surprised by that.”
The 57-year-old also shut down rumours that he would be named godfather to the royal baby, which is due this spring.
