George takes Britney's side against paparazzi

George Clooney sympathizes with Britney Spears in her troubles with paparazzi. "You look at footage of Britney running the red light - there's eight guys with cameras at night in the middle of the street. There are no rules now," he told Entertainment Tonight. "It's getting to a point where people that are not involved are getting hurt." Clooney, who was involved in a near-collision with paparazzi November 16 while riding on his motorcycle in the Hollywood Hills, fears for his neighbors. "What they're doing is illegal, it's high speed chases and they're competing with each other," he says. "They're not trying to catch me doing something stupid, they're trying to create me doing something stupid. You don't get to break all these laws and then say, 'I'm just doing my job.' The guys that commit all these crimes are rewarded for it. It creates bounty hunters in a way." Clooney's advice for the paparazzi? "Take your pictures but don't go 60 mph down a one-way street. Don't cause injury to people who aren't involved."
