Generous George Clooney has donated $25,000 to an Actors Fund cash drive aimed at helping those struggling financially because of the striking Hollywood writers.

The movie star insists he'll make more donations if the strike continues--and he's urging his peers to follow his charitable example.

He tells trade paper Daily Variety, "To people like myself, the strike is a forced vacation, but with the rhetoric high and two other strikes looming, there is the fear that a prolonged strike can destroy people who make a living in this industry.

"My hope is that people who can afford it will take responsibility for this and help out."
