If George Clooney were to throw a dream dinner party (in his villa, of course), what five people would he invite? Bill Clinton is first on the guest list. "He's an interesting guy," George says, "and I'd like to hear what he has to say."
Who's next? "The smartest guy I know is [director and producer] Mike Nichols," George says. "And he's really fun. And he'd bring [his wife] Diane [Sawyer]—she's as sharp as they come."
Without hesitation, George also chooses CNN's Christiane Amanpour .
To round out the group, George wants a musician. "Put Tony Bennett there," George decides. "You want to hear some good old stories."
Who gets the last seat? An architect—Frank Gehry. "People from a bunch of different worlds," George explains.
"This is doable," Oprah says. "You should do this!"
