Twice in one week? We know, it's crazy.

Some of these celebrity quotes, courtesy of People magazine, make this feature worth another shot, however. When celebs are sounding off on everything from Britney Spears to Oscars reality TV to politics, well...

The Pratt Family

See for yourself in the week's top celebrity quotes:

George Clooney says he won't beat out Daniel Day-Lewis for Best Actor at Sunday's Academy Awards, drawing a political analogy.

"For me, it's like being Hillary Clinton," the Michael Clayton star said. "If it weren't for Barack Obama, it would have been a very good year."

"I thought Daniel Day-Lewis had the best performance of the year."

Apart from his own race, the boyfriend of Sarah Larson handicapped all the other major categories, boasting to Time Magazine that he's never lost an Oscar pool. We'll see how accurate his picks are Sunday, February 24.

Clooney

George Clooney did not say if he prefers Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, choosing instead to discuss his recent film, Best Picture nominee Michael Clayton.

"Our film is the best it can be in that genre," he says of its Oscar chances, "but there's a ceiling on that genre."

Instead, Clooney predicts that No Country for Old Men will take the top prize, and its directors Joel and Ethan Coen will nab the Best Director trophy. He also gives a nod to Javier Bardem as Best Supporting Actor.

"If [Michael Clayton] has a shot at anything, it's Best Supporting Actress with Tilda Swinton," he says - although George Clooney officially made Amy Ryan, from Gone Baby Gone, his pick in that category.

The actor was also impressed by La Vie En Rose's Marion Cotillard.

"She does an old person trying to be young, instead of what everyone does - a young person trying to be old," he says. "It's a stunning performance."

No, not the question. George Clooney and Sarah Larson aren't going all Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni on us. Not yet, at least.

But the Michael Clayton star has asked his 29-year old girlfriend join him in his Hollywood Hills home. We're guessing she can't possibly say no to George, but the location of the house may be a problem: it's next door to Britney Spears'!

Clooney and Canalis

A source close to the actor said:

"Sarah is always with George anyway, so it just makes sense. Plus he likes having her around. She has made him very happy and doesn't stress him out. She's easygoing and loving, and that's what he needs right now."

George Clooney and Sarah Larson: it's getting very, very serious!

Clooney has also asked Larson to share his New York apartment with him.

The source added to the National Enquirer:

"George has bought Sarah an entire closet full of clothes to keep in Manhattan so she wouldn't have to pack a suitcase when she flies East with him. He has also told Sarah she is free to use his credit cards. No wonder Sarah is head over heels in love."

We wouldn't expect one of the best known and most respected actors in Hollywood to weigh in on the Britney Spears meltdown from early this month, but it turns out George Clooney was sort of there as it happened.

Clooney didn't know he lived near Britney Spears until the area was surrounded by helicopters, police, paramedics and paparazzi during the "custody dispute" on January 3 that resulted in her two-night hospital stay.

The Oscar nominee and boyfriend of Sarah Larson recalled the evening to the Huffington Post, and needless to say, it's highly amusing:

"I'd gone upstairs, and I came out and I'm in a robe. All of the sudden I look out and see all this s--t going on.

"I have a guest house where my assistant sometimes is, and I think, someone has broken out of prison and like escaped, because it's a chase scene out there. It was like something out of Die Hard."

On Jan. 3, Britney Spears imploded, unbeknownst to neighbor George Clooney.

"I get my baseball bat, which is what you always get in every film â€" I actually think Clive Owen said, 'Get a baseball bat' â€" and I called up my assistant, who I thought was in the guest house, and I said, 'Are you OK?'

"And she's like, 'Yes.'

"And I said, 'Look, if there's someone in the place, say the word stonehenge.'

"And she's like, 'What the f--k are you talking about? I'm in my apartment.'

"I go, 'You're not in the guesthouse?'

"'No.'

"So I'm, like, 'Well, then, what the f--k is going on?' And I go out and I'm running around with a baseball bat in my robe.

"And it turns out it's Britney Spears' house is like, 300 yards from mine. So now I have to move."

We hope Sarah Larson can calm her man down.

As reported by TMZ.com, George Clooney got into a scuffle with Fabio earlier this week. Seriously. The latter model is still alive - and apparently pissing off our favorite actor.

George Clooney Press Conference Pic

Here's what went down: Several women who had won a dinner with Fabio were sitting at his table, snapping photos of the hunk. But Clooney, who was sitting at a different table, thought they were taking shots of him. His response?

A one-fingered salute!

When George questioned the group about photographing him in a private restaurant, Fabio came to their defense Allegedly, a bit of shoving proceeded the encounter.

We love Clooney, but he may have overreacted in this situation. Take your fame in stride, George. No need to follow the example set by Riley Giles.

You can look forward to seeing George Clooney sitting on a motorcycle again in the future.

But the head chair in the Oval Office? Not so much.

"I ride a motorcycle when I'm home in Los Angeles," the actor, asked if his motorcycle days are over, answered in response to a reader's question in the new issue of Time magazine.

And, based on how solid of a relationship Clooney appears to have with Sarah Larson, you can expect to see her riding with him again down the line. And on top of him, of course.

"It's my main mode of transportation," Clooney said simply. "I've been riding for 30 years, and I've had three accidents, which isn't bad odds. I'll keep riding."

But what about running, George? As in, running the country?

Perhaps inspired by Brad Pitt's recent comment that when it came to running for President of the United States, "George should do it! He'd be quite good," Clooney said he'll leave that to Barack Obama, John McCain and other politicians.

"No," he said. "As an advocate, I can take a side and stand by it and not have to worry about ticking off some constituents who helped get me elected. I don't want all those kinds of strings attached."

The stud does, though, still have a cause he believes in, challenging all pundits to debate with him over the situation in Darfur.

No, Sarah Larson did not injure herself staring into the eyes of George Clooney.

Although any woman could understand how distracting that could be. The actor should come with a "Do Not Operate Heavy Machinery While Looking at Me" warning attached to his face.

Instead, Larson is shown here on crutches as a result of a motorcycle accident she and Clooney suffered through last week. But no major damage was done.

At least not compared to the itching and burning sensation Alex Vaggo is stuck with right about now.

A limp is a slight price to pay for Sarah Larson to be dating George Clooney. Here the happy couple is attending the premiere of Clooney's new movie, Michael Clayton.
