WASHINGTON (AP) -- George Clooney has friends in high places -- like the White House. President Barack Obama says Clooney is a good friend and a good person. Obama tells Entertainment Tonight that both he and Clooney are low-maintenance. Don't expect to see a lot of news footage of Clooney hanging out at the White House. Obama says Clooney keeps his distance so that Obama won't be criticized for palling around with celebs. And first lady Michelle Obama adds that Clooney is "cute, too."
