George Clooney held a quick press conference following his release from a Washington DC jail this afternoon. He and his father Nick were arrested earlier today for protesting in front of the Sudanese embassy, and were charged with disorderly crossing of a police line. George was let out of custody after posting $100 bail and took the opportunity to speak to the press about his message on the humanitarian issues in Sudan and South Sudan.
George said: "Listen, what we've been trying to achieve today is we're trying to bring attention to an ongoing emergency. Our job right now is to try to bring attention to it, and one of those ways was, apparently, get arrested. You never know if you're going to accomplish anything, all we're trying to do is bring attention to a moment. We hope this brings attention to it." When asked what his girlfriend Stacy Keibler might think of the arrest, George joked that she's "probably thrilled."
