George Clooney was left speechless by a gay fan who stripped off and asked him for sex.
The 48-year-old actor - who is widely considered one of Hollywood's sexiest actors - was promoting new movie 'The Men Who Stare at Goats' yesterday (08.09.09) when the infatuated admirer declared his feelings.
The unidentified male stood up in the press conference and said: "I am gay, George, and I think I am in love with you... Please take me."
He then proceeded to strip to his underwear, leaving his tie in place, and added: "May I kiss you, please. Just one kiss?"
Taking it all in his stride, George calmly replied: "It's hard when you take a big chance and it doesn't really work.
"It's always embarrassing when you take one real big swing for the fences and it just falls flat. It was a good try, though. You know, the tie looks good, and it's just long enough."
In the film, George plays Lynn Cassady, a man who claims the CIA has a secret, psychic unit who are working to end war.
Fielding questions about his private life during the conference, George - who is dating Italian TV presenter Elisabetta Canalis - also joked he was planning a same-sex wedding.
Referring to 'The Men Who Stare at Goats' director Grant Heslov, George said: "Grant and I are actually announcing our wedding while we are here. I don't quite know how to answer that question, but I can read your mind again and I know what you're thinking."
