George Clooney Calls “New Girl” Report a “Ridiculous Lie”

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates



George Clooney is blasting widespread reports that he plans to bring a “new girl” to the Venice Film Festival, telling Gossip Cop exclusively that quotes attributed to him in the Italian press and getting picked up worldwide are “a ridiculous lie.”

“The Italian press, from Corriere Della Sera to TGCOM, Ansa, NewNotizie, and even Vanity Fair are all running a story that quotes me as saying that I’m bringing a ‘new girl’ to the Venice film festival,” says Clooney.

“I never made that statement and it’s not true.”

“It was made up to sell tabloid magazines,” adds Clooney. “It’s a ridiculous lie and should be corrected as publicly as it was originally written.”

Last month, Clooney split with Elisabetta Canalis.
