George Clooney rules out Presidential bid

George won't be running as the next President but has given his support to Barack Obama.

The 50-year-old actor has sympathised with the current President of the U.S.A, and went on to say that he enjoys his life on-screen.

Clooney, who is known for his humanitarian work, said that he did not envy Mr Obama's job and praised the President's "compassion".

He said: "As for running for president, look, there's a guy in office right now who is smarter than almost anybody you know and he's having an almost impossible time governing. Why would anyone really volunteer for that job? I have a really good job."

George was recently at the Venice Film Festival, premiering his latest film The Ides of March , which he wrote, starred in and directed.
