Gayle King and George Clooney

George Clooney
Nominated for three Oscars®, George Clooney won Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Syriana . Gayle had a chance to interview the dreamy actor on the red carpet before the awards show—and she was the first to interview him right after he walked off stage!

"Congratulations!" Gayle told the stunned actor. "Is this your happy face?"

George broke out of his stupor and grinned ear to ear. "If [my Oscar statuette] unscrewed and it was a flask, I'd be a little happier," he joked.
