LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Want to know how to bag an A-list celebrity? Make a big impression.
Such was the case with Sarah Larson, who revealed to the Las Vegas Review Journal she didn’t meet George Clooney as many suspected – while cocktail waitressing at the Palms. She met the Oscar winner several years before, while she was having a fabulous time out with pals.
“It was on his birthday three or four years ago at Whiskey at Green Valley Ranch,” she told the magazine.
Clooney was at the locale, hanging with his pals, including the owner of Whiskey, Rande Gerber, while Larson was with her own buddies.
“We were all dancing, taking pictures, being silly,” she said.
The sexy brunette was taken at the time, but clearly she left an impression on gentleman George, who sought her out last June when he visited Vegas for the “Ocean’s Thirteen” premiere.
“He heard I was working at Moon,” she said. “We hung out.”
No longer in the waitressing business, Larson recently appeared on the runway at Los Angeles Fashion Week as a model and she may be moving on to greener pastures in Europe.
“We’ll be in Como [soon],” she told the magazine, “which isn’t that far from Milano.”
And though modeling may mean others get to gawk at his girl’s physique, Larson said Clooney has been supportive.
“Your boyfriend better be. If they aren’t, you gotta kick ‘em in the butt and walk away,” she added.
