George Clooney’s shaping up to be the ideal human being. He has it all: good looks, charm, a sense of humor, a successful career and a neverending line-up of beautiful people who want to have sex with him. And now he can add “making getting arrested look debonair” to his resume.
This morning he played a little game of civil disobedience in Washington DC with a few of his friends in an attempt to draw attention to an escalating crisis in Sudan.
The protesters accuse Sudan’s president, Omar al-Bashir, of provoking a humanitarian crisis and blocking food and aid from entering the Nuba Mountains in the county’s border region with South Sudan.
The Oscar winner said earlier that he hopes to draw more attention to the issue and that if action is not taken in the next three to four months, “we’re going to have a real humanitarian disaster.”
The actor and human rights activist testified before Congress earlier this week, after returning from a visit to the region.
George Clooney and gang knew that by standing on the private property of the Sudanese embassy, they would be sure to get arrested. And what draws attention to a cause faster than George Clooney arrest photos? (Well besides making a factually incorrect video about capturing a Ugandan warlord.)
If you didn’t already want to have sex with him, then these latest handcuff photos are sure to change your mind. After all, how can you possibly turn down a man who is trying to change the world?
