When you're George Clooney, there's no need to stress the Oscars: All the man needs is 10 minutes, and he's red carpet ready.
The double Oscar nominee told us that he's feeling calm headed into the Academy Awards, saying he didn't have any nerves. "I’m happy to be here, I get to see a lot of people I like," the star said. "It’s a fun night."
As his date Stacy Keibler explained, nothing happens in the Clooney house "until 10 minutes before." During the day, the actor played a little basketball, and took a nap as Keibler employed the glam squad to prep for the Oscars red carpet.
But even though he may not need a lot of pre-Oscars planning, "You never take it for granted," Clooney said, "because you don’t know if you’re ever allowed back. So I’m really enjoying this night."
