George Clooney took a break from his busy schedule to visit a cafe in Edinburgh that helps homeless people.

An excited crowd had gathered to greet the Hollywood star in Edinburgh on Thursday morning, as he visited Social Bite, a sandwich shop that hires homeless and donates all profits to charity.

Fans braved the wintry chill, waiting since 7am to snatch a glimpse and perhaps a selfie with the actor.

Clooney was formally invited to visit the shop by co-founder John Littlejohn, who admires Clooney for his humanitarian efforts.

“George is an incredible guy, someone who has achieved real global fame but thinks nothing of visiting a local sandwich shop to chat to the workers and discuss the issue of homelessness,” Littlejohn commented.

The Hollywood icon and humanitarian didn’t just show up, but he brought along a group of hungry customers –as he invited tons of media and fans to join him.

While inside, Clooney happily posed for pictures with staff and recognized their hard work.

Nice Guy George even left $1,000 to help buy meals for the needy, and he even grabbed a sandwich for himself.

Clooney praised the project and told reporters, “I like what they’re doing, I think it’s a very important cause. I think the idea that we can all participate in everyone’s difficulties is really important.”

He also thanked the fans for waiting for him “out in the cold”.
