What does a couple like George Clooney and Stacy Keibler do before the Oscars?

Massage? A nice dip in a jacuzzi? Some quiet alone time?

Heck no!

The Descendants star played some basketball with a group of friends he's been shooting hoops with for 20 years.

"I played until 2:15," he said on the red carpet.

He didn't win. "I played terribly," he admitted. "I have a bum elbow."

Keibler said she started to get ready to slip into her gold Marchesa gown at about 11a.m. "I woke up and got ready," she said. "I didn't do anything."

That's not exactly true. The couple did listen to some tunes. "We had on the '70s and '60s channel," Keibler told me. "We were bopping around. We were dancing."

Clooney on Dancing With the Stars next? OK, maybe not.
