    As Clooney explained, Meghan Markle is "a really kind and smart and intelligent young woman", and the press can turn on you “for almost nothing”, which isn’t exactly fair.

    Hollywood star George Clooney has recently stepped up to defend his close friend Meghan Markle, arguing that the way press has been treating her appears "a little unjust" and "unkind" at times.

    "I think it’s a little unfair at times when, you know, I’ve seen it when the press can turn on you for sort of ridiculous reasons and for almost nothing, and it seemed to me to be a little unjust since [Meghan] hadn’t done anything except just happen to live her life," the actor said during his appearance on Good Morning Britain.

    ​He also added that Meghan is "a really kind and smart and intelligent young woman", describing her and her husband Prince Harry as a "really wonderful, loving couple".
    When news of this development hit social media networks, many seemed inclined to agree with Clooney.

    ​Some, however, insisted that the criticism of Meghan Markle was far from being unwarranted.

    ​And there were also those who did not appear all that fond of Clooney himself.
