Clooney Wanted Gosling to Be Sexiest Man

Hot couple George Clooney and Stacy Keibler walked the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of "The Descendants" on Tuesday, where Clooney, picked twice for People's Sexiest Man Alive, told "Extra" he was rooting for his "Ides of March" co-star, Ryan Gosling, to take the title, even though Bradley Cooper ended up on the cover.

Clooney joked, "He [Gosling] really wants it. He's been saying... the whole time we were on the set of 'Ides,' he was like, 'How did you pull that off?' So I called up Brad Pitt and we worked with him for weeks on the walk... we told him how to train... everything."

George's lovely GF, Stacy, 32, opted for a sparkly, plunging ensemble, with her beau telling "Extra's" Renee Bargh, "She looks good, doesn't she? She's dressed up." Clooney's parents accompanied their famous son to the premiere, making it the first meeting between his folks and Keibler.

The actor, who plays a workaholic dad trying to reconnect with his daughters in "The Descendants," is already generating Oscar buzz for Best Actor.

Clooney also appeared in a candid interview with Rolling Stone, titled, "Confessions of a Dirty Mind," and said, "I have to have it [my mind] cleaned once a week."
