Rock stars are used to have undergarments thrown at them while on stage, but most actors don’t encounter a similar situation while speaking at a professional press conference.
Then again, not all actors are as irresistible as George Clooney.
Clooney has proved that he’s a red hot sex symbol all over the world, for both women and men.
And some of the Irish-American actor’s admirers will go to extremes to show their love for him.
Take the gay Italian man who decided to strip off his clothes and offer himself to Clooney in the middle of a press conference at the Venice Film Festival.
Clooney is in town to promote his new film, “The Men Who Stare at Goats.” While chatting with the press on Tuesday, one “journalist” in the back of the room stood up to ask a question, but ended up performing strip tease instead.
“I didn’t see your movie yet, but I saw you,” the man told his idol.
“I am gay, George.”
Clooney, who seemed completely unfazed by the situation, calmly stated “Here it comes.”
His enthusiastic suitor went on to profess his deep passion for the actor, saying: “I think I’m in love with you. George, please take me. Choose me George, please.
“George may I kiss you please, just one kiss?”
Now if this were an American press conference, the cops would have been on this guy in a second, but random, crazy declarations of love are a bit more acceptable in Venice – the man’s microphone was taken away, and in just a tie and a pair of tighty whities, he continued to yell to George from the back of the room.
Clooney responded to the unusual situation in his usual charming way. The actor laughed it off, saying: “It’s hard when you take a big chance and it doesn’t really work. It’s always embarrassing.”
