Ryan Seacrest Spills Red Carpet Secrets on George Clooney, Sacha Baron Cohen

Ryan Seacrest was the go-to reporter for all the E! News pre-Oscar red carpet interviews and Ryan dishes on all the stuff you didn't see on TV.

Of course you've at least heard about Sacha Baron Cohen's stunt on the red carpet, if you haven't I can only assume you're still using askjeeves.com and you don't own a TV.

Anyways, Sacha came to the Oscars dressed as his “The Dictator” character General Shabazz Aldadeen and gave Ryan an interview “in character” that was pretty funny until he “accidentally” spilled the “ashes” of deceased dictator Kim Jong Il all over Ryan Seacrest's suit!

For those of you haters out there, who thought the whole thing was planned, let Ryan Seacrest assure you that he as just as surprised as you were.

“I definitely did not know that he was going to do that!” Ryan reveals on his radio show this morning, “He comes over, and I asked him a couple of questions, but…You know that feeling in your gut. You feel like, 'This is going too normally.'”

Ryan adds that he got suspicious when nothing crazy was happening yet, “He didn't put all that on just to answer a few questions in character.”

Cut to: Ryan gets a dead persons “ashes” all over his suit jacket.

Ryan also says that Jennifer Lopez was the most stunning actress on the red carpet this year, beating out Hollywood faves like Angelina Jolie and Natalie Portman.

“She's beautiful, I was like 'Wow! There's some pa-poom!'”

Verdict still out on what “pa-poom” means. Ryan adds that it was her low-cut dress that really caught his eye, if you know what I mean.

“It was so low cut, her chest was glistening,” says Ryan, “It was so perfectly glistening, I could look right into it and see a reflection.

Eyes up here, buddy.

As for George Clooney, Ryan says that the actor is his absolute favorite person to interview on the carpet.

“He's like heaven when it comes to an interview, because you can just like say one half of a sentence and he just runs it with clever wit and charm.”
