Duarte Garrido, Entertainment Reporter

Celebrity heartthrob George Clooney has paid a surprise visit to an 87-year-old fan living in a retirement home in Reading.

The Hollywood A-lister, described as a "class act", brought a card and a bunch of flowers to the Sunrise of Sonning Retirement and Assisted Living Facility in Reading on Sunday.

Octogenarian Pat Adams was "delighted and surprised when George greeted her with a bouquet of flowers", said Linda Jones, who took the photo.

"She is still beaming from ear to ear," she added.

"The lady in the picture loves George Clooney and mentions every day how she would love him to meet him, especially as he lives so near to where I work," Jones said.

Clooney owns a country home in Berkshire, near the facility, and received a letter "asking would it be possible for her dream to come true".

"And what was extra special it was her birthday in the week," Jones said.

The 55-year-old actor is currently expecting twins with his wife, British-Lebanese Human Rights lawyer Amal Clooney.

"We are so delighted that Pat's wish came true," said Sunrise of Sonning divisional support general manager Malcolm Hague.

"She was absolutely thrilled to meet her great icon, and it was such a lovely surprise to see George greet her with flowers and a card," he added.

"This was a classy gesture from a wonderful man, and it has brought smiles to everyone at Sunrise of Sonning. Huge thank you to George."
