George Clooney lays the smack down when asked about his dating life at the Ides of March press conference

This just in: George Clooney does not like to be asked about his love life. When a cheeky reporter at today’s press conference for The Ides of March—featuring a blockbuster all-star team of Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Evan Rachel Wood and Marisa Tomei—dared to inquire which was harder, directing, or dating in the public eye, Hollywood’s leading Casanova fired back, with authority.

Clooney: “What’s your name”
Reporter: “Paul.”
Clooney: “What’s your last name, Paul?”
Reporter: “Chi.”
Clooney: “Everyone remember Paul Chi and his hard-hitting interview. Go back to your editor and tell them you asked that question, Paul.”

End of discussion.
