George Clooney Compares Markle Coverage to Princess Di


FILE - Actor, executive producer, and director George Clooney speaks on a panel for the Hulu series "Catch-22", during the Television Critics Association (TCA) Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California, Feb. 11, 2019.

George Clooney is frustrated by the way the media is treating Megan Markle, comparing it to how the media covered Princess Diana.

Clooney told reporters the American actress who became the Duchess of Sussex is "a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was and it's history repeating itself."
