Found by Marlylamb. Ex-crumbs will remember 'handgate' and all our humorous speculation about how George hurt his hand. Now, here's this:

Curious George
Private Residence, Toronto
Friday, September 11, 2009

Following the premiere of “The Men Who Stare at Goats,” several members of the press were invited to hop aboard a bus to an undisclosed location in order to celebrate the film along with Clooney and Bridges. After a 20-minute ride, we were dropped off in front of one of the most expensive mansions in Toronto — and greeted by a pen filled with real goats.

While Bridges chilled out in a corner with a couple of friends, Clooney was surprisingly gregarious, standing in the center of the room and cordially greeting all comers. Not surprisingly, there were many.

At one point, a fellow actor asked him what had happened to his hand, which was heavily bandaged. Clooney’s reps had informed the media that the actor had closed a car door on his own hand, but he could be overheard telling this acquaintance that his new girlfriend was actually the one who’d accidentally shut the door too quickly and he was trying to spare her the media attention.

Moments later, he excused himself again to take a phone call, and I quickly snapped this candid shot.

Yes, even George Clooney gets hurt; owns a cell phone (a Motorola, if you can believe it!); and makes and takes his own calls.

Note: this is posted by a film journalist Scott Feinberg whose site is at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Seeing as he has put this great George photo on a flickr account open to the public, I'm assuming he's fine with this being here. If not, please contact me and I'll take it down.

I totally buy this story, b/c it seems nigh impossible to slam your OWN hand in a car door. But it's easy to slam a car door on your boyfriend's hand. Wink

Yep, I've done the same. And to this day can't figure out how I did it!
