US super-star actor, ageing women's favourite and generally good hearted chap, George Clooney has been arrested, but he wasn't acting; this time it was for real. He was arrested at a Sudan protest march in Washington outside of their embassy protesting about the mis-deeds of the Sudanese government in humanitarian issues on their southern border.
George is an active Sudan protestor, but this time he crossed the line too far, literally, and was taken away handcuffed. Normally he reserves such stunning performances for his pretty naff films and "Nescaff-naff" coffee advertisements.
He wasn't in jail long, because he was bailed, so his army of ageing female followers can sigh a breath of relief, rush out and buy some Nescafe and hope George is waiting in one of their local supermarkets to "swoon" them away (dream on).
Actually George got famous by playing a pretty-boy doctor on the US TV soap ER and ever since then has had a desire to help people who are less fortunate than himself.
So after chatting with Richard Gere, Brad Pitt and Angela, Sean Penn, Bono and other do-gooders, he decided to adopt Sudan. After all any publicity is good publicity even if it means getting arrested, ask Hugh Grant!
