Clooney Shuns Goody Bags
GEORGE CLOONEY and his girlfriend SARAH LARSON left the Academy Awards on Sunday (24Feb08) empty-handed - because the movie star refuses to accept free gifts. The Michael Clayton star avoids gift suites at awards shows and parties - because he doesn't want to be seen as being greedy. And, if he's ever sent a free gift, he gives it away to charity. Clooney tells Time magazine, "I've been smart about that. Rich famous people getting free s**t looks bad. You look greedy. And I don't need a cell phone with sparkles on it."
