LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Note to journalists: Don’t ask George Clooney about his love life.
When a People magazine reporter asked Clooney at the Toronto Film Festival, at a panel to promote the star’s new film, which he also directs — “The Ides of March” — which was harder – “directing or dating in the spotlight,” the Oscar winner scolded him like a kind school teacher.
“Well you know, it’s funny. I knew someone would do it. I’m a little disappointed it’s you,” Clooney said.
“Everyone here is a little ashamed of you right now. Honestly,” Clooney added.
Still, George noted the reporter had something to be proud of.
“Listen, I think it’s tremendous you asked the question, go back and tell your editor you asked the question,” he said with a smile.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Clooney is currently involved with former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Stacy Keibler, while his ex-girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis is a current contender in the competition.
