George lords Oscar
George Clooney has a reputation for being a great guy, but heaven help you if you're one of his pals without an Oscar — like Brad Pitt. George, who snagged the award for Syriana, said the golden statue "makes me much harder to live with," in an interview with Britain's GMTV. "That's what I enjoy doing with Brad," he joked. "Gloating." But if you get an invite to George's house, you do get some face time with the Oscar. "I keep it over a fireplace in my house," said George. "When my friends come over, I make them pick it up and we take photographs of them giving an acceptance speech."
