    George Clooney Suffers Broken Hand in Car "Accident"
    George Clooney may be one of the biggest supporters of Darfur, but he has done his part to help the environment. He owns an electrical car, the Tango. Not as impressive as the Bat mobile, but when you look like Clooney it doesn't matter what you drive-- you still get chicks.

    George Clooney's hand is in a cast, but not due to a motorcycle accident as some outlets have reported. The actor was involved in an accident with a car – specifically, the car door vs. his hand!

    Despite various online reports out of Europe claiming the actor broke his hand while riding his Harley Davidson around Lake Lugano, near the border of Italy and Switzerland, the actor's rep told Access Hollywood what really happened to the star's hand.

    "There was an accident and he did break his hand," Clooney's rep, Stan Rosenfield, told Access. "He was not riding a motorcycle, it was not in Switzerland… He was on his property in Italy and he shut the car door on his hand."

    Clooney was treated at the private Ars Medica clinic in Gravesano, Switzerland, located near his Lake Como, Italy home.

    "The doctor has given him 30-40 years more to live, and no live animals were harmed during the wrapping of the hand," Clooney's rep joked, "The only reason he went to the hospital was to get a temporary cast put on."

    This is not Clooney's first road bump. In 2007, the actor and then-girlfriend Sarah Larson collided with a car while riding his motorcycle in New Jersey. The actor suffered a hairline fracture on one of his ribs along with some scrapes and bruises. Larson broke her foot during the accident.
