George Clooney does not use a fake self-tanner, despite a ridiculous tabloid report. Gossip Cop can correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to the National Enquirer, the actor has “turned orange,” and the “bogus tan is so bad that snickering Lake Como residents have joked he looks like one of Willy Wonka’s oompa loompas.” In the seemingly made-up story, a so-called “source” tells the outlet, “You don’t get that tangerine color from sunning yourself all day like he would have you think.” Another alleged Lake Como “local” is quoted as saying, “He’s been compared to Cary Grant and his deep, dark tan, but George owes his to a home-tan solution, not the sun!”

The supermarket tabloid’s questionable “insider” goes on to contend that the actor’s self tan is “all patchy because he forgets the cardinal rule that you have to moisturize before fake baking.” “It could be the middle of a freezing winter but George will have a gorgeous tan,” further purports the magazine’s dubious “source,” adding, “He’s not fooling anyone.”

Let Gossip Cop set the record on this manufactured report. A source close to Clooney tells us the Enquirer’s latest story is 100 percent “not true.” The actor has a naturally dark complexion, and it seems the magazine is purposely using a picture of him which, because of the lighting, makes him look a little orange. In the real world, however, the only thing that’s fake is the tabloid’s tale.

Of course, we’re not remotely surprised by the outlet’s latest concoction, as the Enquirer has a long history of fabricating absurd reports about the star. Earlier this month, Gossip Cop corrected the magazine for wrongly claiming fatherhood was “killing” Clooney. And shortly before that piece of fiction, we debunked the outlet for falsely alleging Clooney was begging Kit Harington to hang out with him. Much like those inaccurate stories, this latest one is equally untrue.
