George Clooney and a companion were injured on Friday when their motorcycle collided with a car on a narrow road across the Hudson River from New York City.
Clooney suffered a broken rib and scrapes while his passenger, Sarah Larson, broke her foot in the 3:30 p.m. collision. The two were treated at Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen and released.
George was in the NYC area filming Burn After Reading, co-starring Brad Pitt, who’s kind of like his other girlfriend these days.
It’s unclear who was at fault, but it looks like George was trying to pass the car on the right, which is illegal in New Jersey.
Now George Clooney will think twice before he takes up with some no-name tramp other than me.

I knew it would come to this at some point. When someone is so sexy that they make the human torch look like a wet blanket people are bound to get hurt. And since George lives in Italy those people are Italians.:
ROME (AP) — George Clooney has joined a protest to stop construction of parking lots and a promenade in the northern Italian lakeside town where he owns a villa because he fears his presence is turning the quiet town into a tourist attraction.
You see, the town of Laglio has become besieged by people just hoping to get a little taste of the two time “Sexiest Man Alive.”
The article points out that Clooney recently signed a petition to derail a construction project that would have hurt the locals’ fishing boat harbor.
“My concern is that this village that has stood for hundreds of years would be destroyed simply because I happened to have lived there for the last six years. I told my neighbors that I would do what they wanted. And it seemed that they didn’t want to demolish the harbor where all the local fishermen keep their boats,” Clooney said.
I definitely commend Clooney for taking action, but I wonder exactly how long he can be contained. The hotness seekers will come for him, and it will take more than a petition to keep them off. Heck, it could take a full brigade of the Italian army.

The Associated Press scooped everybody on this shit. Take that, People magazine. Angelina Jolie exclusives my ass. We’ve got George Clooney being a nice guy at a lemonade stand. Also, guys, is it just me, or are George Clooney and Taylor Hicks slowly morphing into the same person?
TOBACCOVILLE, North Carolina (AP) — A group of kids on spring break thought setting up a lemonade stand near George Clooney’s movie set might be a good business move. They were right.
The star paid $20 for his lemonade, which 10-year-old Carter, 6-year-old Chandler and 5-year-old Chase Fontaine were selling for 25 cents.
Clooney made his way over to the lemonade stand Wednesday afternoon after shooting scenes for “Leatherheads,” a movie about the early days of professional football that he is directing and acting in.
The boys’ mother, Courtney Fontaine, offered Clooney the lemonade for free. He had posed for pictures with her and some other women.
But Clooney insisted on paying, sending someone over with a $20 bill. Chandler enjoyed telling people afterward that Clooney’s representative didn’t want any change.
Before long, Carter had made another sign that read, “George Clooney was here!” and planted it at the road.

He’s done it again. George Clooney has taken home the “Sexiest Man Alive” title from People magazine. He first won it nine whole years ago, clearly there are no traditional limits on this man’s sexuality.
Here’s the problem I have with George Clooney; there is no problem. He gives great interviews, he’s got great friends, he chooses great projects. This is highly frustrating to someone who sees the celeb world as a collection of freaky deaky folks. It also means that Clooney is hiding something unspeakable like he’s got a twin who’s hooked on PCP or he once killed a cat because he was bored. I don’t know what the thing will be when it comes out but I guarantee you’ll shake your head because you never saw it coming. Well I did. Everyone’s got something to hide.
Fine, he’s damn sexy, and that’s coming from a happy straight man. But later today I’m going to have to go after the rest of the list with both guns blazing.
