As an A-list actor, longtime bachelor and someone not apt to talk about his personal life, homosexual rumors have followed George Clooney for decades. A different man might be bothered by that, but the Ides Of March director couldn’t care less about those whispers. They don’t affect his life, and they don’t affect anyone else’s life. In fact, he’s kind of amused by the whole thing.

At least that’s what he told The Advocate in a fascinating new interview. Discussing everything from his role in Dustin Lance Black’s upcoming one night play 8 to his willingness to play a gay character if he finds the right script, the conversation, not surprisingly, eventually turned to the accusations about his personal life. Here’s what he had to say…
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 my good friends in the gay community. 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 hurt 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 shit.

That quote is a good indication of why Clooney has been beloved for so many years. He’s just an affable, laid back guy with his own take on things. In this case, he’s absolutely right too. Fifty years from now, someone will probably write a book about how he and Brad Pitt were secretly bedding each other, and I’m sure both of them, if they’re extremely old and still alive, will think it’s hilarious.
