Actor George Clooney was in a jovial mood when he was released from jail on Friday, poking fun at himself and those who were arrested with him for protesting outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington, DC.

"It was really rough, you can imagine," Cloony told reporters. "Have you ever been in a cell with these guys?"

Clooney's father, journalist Nick Clooney, was also among those arrested.

"It was fun," Clooney continued on a sweeter note. "We were all in a cell together. It was nice."

"It is my first arrest," he concluded, in answer to a question. "And let's hope it's my last."
