George Clooney

Bails Out for Cheap

3/16/2012 12:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Clooney
just bailed out of jail after being arrested for crossing a police line this morning in Washington D.C.

His bond -- about as cheap as it gets -- $100. 

Clooney and others were protesting in front of the Sudanese Embassy, voicing dismay over the killing of innocent men, women, and children. Clooney was arrested by U.S. Secret Service after he refused to move away from the protected area around the Embassy.

In all ... 15 men were arrested, including George's dad Nick as well as a congressman, and 2 women.

Moments after he was released, George was asked about his ultra-short stint behind bars -- and he joked, "Really rough you can imagine ... Have you ever been in a cell with these guys?"

George is a great guy, and greatly appreciated by those of us who work in the movie industry. He makes a lot of movies, but doesn't take superstar salaries, employs a lot of people, and is always friendly and professional. The negative comments here about him are childish and pethetic, and sound like they're written by jealous lowlifes. George has been to Sudan several times & is deeply moved by the plight of the people there who have undergone horrific tragedies. He pays for his charitable work himself, pays a lot of taxes, is a citizen and resident here of the US and has every right to protest, same as the rest of us. For those of you who don't like it, tough. Rock on George!

George's dad is a journalist who is trying to help Geo bring attention to people being bombed and starved so they'll leave their land. They don't want us to go to war but if we can put the squeeze on Iran, we can surely do it to Sudan. The oil has already been shut off there which is affecting our gas price – that is the only thing some Americans understand – give me my fn' gas for my fn' SUV. I don't get why anyone has a problem with a celeb bringing attention to a good cause being ignored by news media.

This publicity stunt, especially his joking about jail, undermines the real work Clooney has done in calling attention to problems in the Sudan.

George's arrest perhaps provides explanation of why Stacy did not attend his trip to Washington. Arrest for the protest was a very possible outcome and she kept out of it completely. Her career is not big enough yet to have made an important statement on the cause, so even if she cares about it and joined George in the protest, it could have detracted from the cause and the media would probably have accused her of publicity seeking. Yet if she didn't go to the protest with George and stayed in her hotel, she would probably have been accused of not caring enough. Can't win either way, it seems. So best she let it be known she had a modeling gig in Europe, which I'm sure she did anyway, even if she could have attended the WH dinner and then gone on to Spain. She would probably then have been improperly accused on running out on George and not protesting with him. Or it could be that she had an ironclad modeling contract in Spain that she could not cancel, and also had the obligation to show up very rested and looking good for it -- not catching a red eye after a WH dinner. So the speculation that there's "trouble in paradise" is way too early.

Why did George Clooney put himself in the position of being arrested? Because he knew it was a minor charge and a minor bail, and would garner attention to the cause. Come on people.....he knows what he is doing! He took a "baby bullet" for the cause. You have to appreciate the dedication, but deplore the media hoar in him. At the end of the day, I actually think it was a brilliant move.

Just because 99% of the posters here don't do anything good for the world, you should be the least qualified to talk about someone else's acts. Being selfish and self-centered, and having the false "bravery" to say things you would probably just cower and pee in your pants if actually in front of the person you are criticizing, rather than behind a keyboard... well, do I need to say anything else? Let's just put it this way - you could add up any good acts of any of the posters on this board, and it wouldn't amount to more than some minute act.
