Kempt Man of the Hour: George Clooney
Ladies and gentlemen, George Clooney has been arrested.
This picture comes from a protest outside the Sudanese Embassy earlier today, when his grizzledness was taken into custody alongside his dad, two US congressmen and the president of the NAACP. They were protesting Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir and the ongoing humanitarian crisis there—but even more impressive than the cause was the timing. Just two days ago, he was making the same case at Obama’s yearly state dinner.
Clearly, he’s hitting all the bases, but he’s also hitting them in the right order. It’s the first rule of society activism: save the arrest for after the gala.
