George Clooney's Close Encounter of the Gay-Stripper Kind

Haha, how hilarious is this, poor George getting sexually harassed while at a press conference. He does a great job of dealing with the guy I have to admit. I’m not sure I could hold my composure as well. I wonder if this guy thought he had a genuine chance or if he just figured he would get on the news. Since he is a fan, George should at least thrown a couple dollars at him, haha… -Greg

George Clooney came prepared to the Venice Film Festival.

Buzzworthy new flick. Check. Hot Italian girlfriend. Check. Crazy gay fanatic. Check and double check.

Clooney was fielding queries during a televised press conference for his new movie, The Men Who Stare at Goats, when he got an eyeful from a male questioner.

“I am gay, George, and I think I am in love with you…Please take me,” the dude said, stripping down to his underwear. “May I kiss you, please. Just one kiss?”

The ever chill Clooney didn’t miss a beat. “It’s hard when you take a big chance and it doesn’t really work,” he chuckled.

“It’s always embarrassing when you take one real big swing for the fences and it just falls flat,” said Clooney, who was decidedly not persuaded to do some switch-hitting. “It was a good try, though.”
