George Clooney is a free man again.

After getting arrested this morning as part of a protest against the President of Sudan, the actor bailed himself out of a D.C. jail by forking over $100.

Overall, the Oscar winner was one of 15 people taken into custody after he refused to leave a protected area in front of the Sudanese Embassy, as he and others - including his father, Nick, a journalist - were trying to bring attention to a potential genocide in the African region.

Asked by reporters about his ultra brief stint behind bars, Clooney responded:

"Listen, what we've been trying to achieve today is we're trying to bring attention to an ongoing emergency... We hope people understand there really is a ticking clock on this and we need to get moving. There's been amazing progress at times. There've been some great strides, but on the other hand, there's an awful lot that's still going on."

Seriously, how can you not love this guy?

George Clooney was arrested this morning outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Clooney, George

The actor was taking part in an organized demonstration to draw attention to that country's president, Omar al-Bashir, who is responsible for countless deaths in the region due to his blockade of humanitarian aide.

Clooney - who has traveled to the country and said in the past we're going to face a genocide if action isn't taken - testified before Congress on Wednesday regarding the "campaign of murder" in that nation.

"This is for the government in Khartoum to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children. Stop raping them and stop starving them. That's all we ask," USA Today quotes Clooney as saying after he was handcuffed and taken away today, following repeated warnings to leave the area.

Along with his father; U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (Dem.) of Virginia; NAACP President Ben Jealous and others, Clooney was placed in a Secret Service and has been charged with the misdemeanor of disorderly crossing a police line. Said the star's rep:

"They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world."

You wanna believe George Clooney is gay? The actor possesses a resume full of the most beautiful girlfriends in the business, but go right ahead.

He won't stop you.

George Clooney in the Crowd

"I think it's funny," the actor tells The Advocate of such rumors. "But the last thing you'll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, 'These are lies!' That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community. I'm not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I'm very happy in it."

Clooney, of course, is dating Stacy Keibler (or is he really?!?) and is a firm support of gay marriage.

"One day the marriage equality fight will look as archaic as George Wallace standing on the University of Alabama steps keeping James Hood from attending college because he was black," he says. "People will be embarrassed to have been on the wrong side."

By all accounts, George Clooney should be preparing an acceptance speech for this Sunday's Academy Awards. He's the favorite for Best Actor, following a tremendous performance in The Descendants.

But the actor - who only made $300,000 for that film - took time to chat with the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter this month, opening up about a number of topics, including his friendship with another Best Actor nominee. Excerpts from the interview are below...

George Clooney on The Hollywood Reporter

On alcohol: "I do enjoy drinking, and there have been times in my life when it’s crossed the line from being fun to having to drink late at night for absolutely no reason. So what I do is, I stop. I haven’t had a drink since New Year’s Eve."

On Brad Pitt: “Brad is one of the great guys. We’re good friends, but it’s different from what people think, meaning we don’t spend a lot of time together. He has been to my home in Como; we motorcycle together. But until recently, I hadn’t seen Brad in a year.”

On loneliness: "Anyone would be lying if they said they didn’t get lonely at times. The loneliest you will get is in the most public of arenas: You will go to a place and end up in the smallest compartment possible, because it’s a distraction to everybody, and you end up not getting to enjoy it like everyone else.” He adds, “I have been infinitely more alone in a bad relationship; there’s nothing more isolating. I have been in places in my life where that has existed.”

The whole online world now knows that Demi Moore was "smoking something" last week, and the act resulted in a "semi-conscious" state that left at least one friend in a panic.

That's because the 911 call placed on behalf of the actress was released to the public, something that's permitted in our justice something and something which befalls most celebrities who end up in the hospital.

But George Clooney doesn't believe this should be the case.

"I think it's a stupid thing," the actor told The Insider. "I think it's stupid for anyone, whether they're celebrated or not, I don't believe their 911 call should be broadcast around the world, but that's my opinion. What's happening and what people have to remember is that people are getting famous from Facebook and Twitter, so it's not just about people here, it's about everybody. There won't be any version of privacy. So it's going to be a tricky thing."

It's a tricky subject indeed. Where do you stand on it? Should 911 calls be made public?

George Clooney is an Oscar winner, a philanthropist and a bachelor with a new beautiful woman on his arm almost every year.

Yet the actor tells the latest issue of Rolling Stone that life wasn't always so perfect. Far from it, in fact.

Referring to a spinal injury he suffered on the set of Syriana in 2005, Clooney said he was bedridden and "at a point where I thought, 'I can't exist like this. I can't actually live."

Elisabetta Canalis may have dated George Clooney for years, but the 33-year old model has come out and denied reports that she was pressuring the actor into having kids or getting married.

After all, Canalis says, "between us there was more of a father-daughter relationship."

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant makes this strange comparison in Bruno Vespa's new book "Questo Amore" ("This Love"), saying there's no bad blood at all between her and the Oscar winner, 50.

She considers Clooney "the person who valued my feminine side the most" and "also one of the best people I have met from a charitable point of view," adding creepily again: "He has been a special for me, and very important, just as a father would be."
