The 50-year-old didn't appear to be flustered when he was arrested for civil disobedience after protesting outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington last week, and now a friend and fellow protester has revealed George was in such good spirits, he told cops his name was Brad Pitt!
Fred Kramer — executive director of Jewish World Watch — who shared a paddy wagon with George last Friday, told Access Hollywood: "George was really the movie star gentleman, he made everyone feel comfortable. He was cracking jokes.
"When it came time to tell the Secret Service who we all were, he tried to pass himself off as Brad Pitt."
That's not to say George didn't take his arrest seriously, though. Kramer assured Access Hollywood that the actor's concern for the humanitarian crisis in Sudan is genuine, and revealed he, George and other arrested protestors (including George's dad, Nick Clooney), spent their short time in jail having a mini conference.
"The time in the cell was pretty incredible … We spent those couple of hours in the pokey sitting and talking about what could be done and how the United States can lead the thought on this."
Oh, George Clooney. Talented actor, devoted humanitarian, all-round funny guy. Swoon.
