"If you died and came back as a person or thing, what would it be?"

For both George Clooney and First Lady Michelle Obama, the answer is this: a dog.

Clooney answered the question, one of many in the famous Proust Questionnaire, for Vanity Fair's February issue.

"He lives better," the Descendants star said of his new rescue dog, Einstein.

For his part, Einstein seems to enjoy his life. "He loves me," Clooney told Esquire recently. "I can do no wrong. He follows me everywhere."

Mrs. Obama shares Clooney's sentiments. In a December interview with Barbara Walters, she said, "I would want to be Bo. He's got a great life. He's got it good."
