George Clooney is just beginning a crazy and chaotic winter full of awards shows celebrating his critically acclaimed movie The Descendants.
And the actor is revealing his pre-show ritual for getting ready for all the non-stop ceremonies with girlfriend Stacy Keibler. "I play basketball and she gets ready," George revealed to OK! at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards at the Hollywood Paladium in Los Angeles, before he took home the award for Best Actor.
But is his lady his good-luck charm? "My lucky charm? Stan Rosenfield," the actor admits of his publicist.
George has had a quite the meteoric rise in Hollywood year after year, and another thing that has continued to grow is his friendship with fellow superstar Brad Pitt. But that doesn't mean that they fight for limelight. "He’s my buddy. I always root for him," George says.
Also honored at the 2012 Critics' Choice Movie Awards was Sean Penn for his philanthropic work in Haiti, and George couldn't be more moved by the work that he has done. "He’s been there for two years straight, and it's inspiring that he puts his money where his mouth is."
