Disclaimer: I am not at all implying this is a cultural, UK v US difference, just a Cheryl Cole v George Clooney difference.
Pop Quiz: What do George Clooney and Cheryl Cole have in common?
No, George hasnt punched a bathroom attendant and been charged with racially aggravated assault, and "The Nation's Sweetheart", Cheryl certainly hasn't won any humanitarian awards, but they both have contracted malaria and spoken to Piers Morgan about it.
After seeing George's interview, I couldn't help but notice the juxtaposition between their (and Piers') very different reactions ... Pick up Cheryl's interview at 6:25 for the malaria bit.
Get well soon George.
