Right to remain handsome: Actor, activist and national dreamboat George Clooney was arrested while protesting in front of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington this morning. Clooney and his father, Nick, who also was arrested, were there to draw attention to the “campaign of murder” on Sudanese citizens by their government. You know, Clooney really should have thought this through. If he’d gotten himself arrested yesterday, March 15, it would have been the perfect tie-in to his political film Ides of March, now available on DVD and Blu-Ray®. [TMZ]
Play the feud: Inspired by Jon Hamm’s recent dismissal of Kim Kardashian as a “f***ing idiot” (he has a point), HuffPo has put together a handy slideshow of celebrity feuds past and present. Celebrities: They’re petty just like us! [HuffPo]
iFelony: Turns out that Russell Brand’s throwing of a paparazzo’s phone through a window is a felony in the state of Louisiana, where the incident took place. Why? Because iPhones are so damn pricey. Property damage in excess of $500 is considered felony-worthy, and unlucky for Brand, the paparazzo was hauling one of Apple’s finest. Certainly there must be an app that could have told him that.

[Joke about screaming during labor here] Congrats go out to Scream star Neve Campbell, who is pregnant with her first child, and who is the top story on People despite still being referred to as “Scream star Neve Campbell.” [People]
Pufnstuf: We can all relax. Ashley Judd’s suddenly puffy face is not the result of fillers and injections as speculated, but of steroids for a terrible sinus infection. Who knew steroids made one’s forehead soooo smooooth? [People]
Well hello, Jude: You know that dream where you’re standing there naked talking to Paul McCartney? [CDaN]
Whole lotta hair: Kate Beckinsale, Eva Longoria and Victoria Beckham walk into a bar … I have no punchline to this. I bet they had a lovely time. [Popsugar]
Blind item: “There has been so much drama about horrible actors here this week, that I thought I would tell you about one of the good ones. Oh, he has his faults, but he definitely makes an effort to help others. He is an A lister on television on a very hit show and was in one of the best and most popular movies of the year last year.
Anyway, without any publicity on his part, our actor has made arrangements to purchase 25 tickets to each Lakers and Clippers game to give a chance for impoverished children and their families to attend games which they would otherwise be unable to do. He and his partner also founded an organization which provides after school activities in the arts like music, ballet and drama classes for kids after school. They pay for all the salaries of the instructors and any supplies needed by the kids are also paid for through their efforts.
They have made sure these kids and families have school supplies, Christmas presents and have even paid for birthdays for over a hundred children. The great thing about this, is they have done it all quietly without asking or seeking any attention for their actions.” My guess: No idea, but the popular guess on CDaN is successor to the Clooney crown, Jon Hamm.

Blind item 2: “This semi-retired supermodel is finally ready to kick her cheating, good-for-nothing hus¬band to the curb! The still-sexy catwalk queen and mother of two has turned the other cheek for many years, but the last straw was when her hunky hubby start¬ed canoodling with one of her girlfriends! Who is she?” My guess: Cindy Crawford. She needs to get some Clooney action. [CDaN]
