(LOS ANGELES) — Although George Clooney has dated arguably some of the most beautiful women in the world, rumors that he’s gay come up every now and again. Clooney told The Advocate he couldn’t care less.
“I think it’s funny, but the last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down saying, ‘These are lies!’ That would be unfair and unkind to all my friends in the gay community,” Clooney told the magazine.
The actor, who is currently dating Stacey Kiebler added, “I’m not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I’m very happy in it. Who does it hurts if someone thinks I’m gay? I’ll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don’t give a s**t.”
