Who’s a bigger star:
Well, the two met on the red carpet at the Oscars Sunday night as Reed was there to do interviews for “The Rich Eisen Podcast.”
Audio of Reed’s interviews will be on NFL.com/iTunes Wednesday afternoon and can be first seen Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. ET when "The Rich Eisen Combine Special" airs on The NFL Network.
For now, I can supply you with a couple insights and photos via different news sources.
NFL Network released a little video featuring the meeting with Clooney.
Clooney said, “You hurt me bad – I’m a big Bengals fan.” Reed did return an interception for a touchdown in the regular-season opener.
Reed responded by saying, “They’re hurting you, man! They’re hurting you!”
Reed apparently interviewed a bunch of Hollywood A-listers including Clooney (who was joined by former Ravens cheerleader Stacy Keibler), Jennifer Hudson, Zoe Saldana, Chris Tucker, Kathryn Bigalow, and Naomie Harris.
During the after party, Reed chatted up Jamie Foxx and was smitten with Halle Berry.
According to a tweet from NFL Network producer Chris Brockman, when Berry walked by the red carpet, Reed said, “Now we can go home.”
"I wanted to take a picture with her but she walked out so quick,” Reed told SI.com. “Beautiful woman, man.”
I’m eager to hear Reed’s questions to the stars. He’s always been one of the most interesting, and thoughtful, Ravens players to interview.
"Usually I'm the guy not doing interviews," Reed said. "I'm focusing on my job. So to do something different was fun. I think I did all right.
"It's the Oscars, man, the Super Bowl of movies. I'm a big movie fan and it was a dream come true to be among stars in a different field.”
