Would You Strip for George Clooney in Public to Win His Affection?

I lust for George Clooney as much as the next normal gay man (what person in his right mind wouldn't fake a medical crisis in the hope of receiving mouth-to-mouth), but an Italian journalist declared his love for the hot hunk of actor this week by doing a haphazard striptease during a press conference at the Venice Film Festival and screaming, "Choose me! Take me!"

George handled the situation gracefully, while improvising a few quips, while the journalist was stripped (yeah, sorry) of his press credentials. I'm not sure if the Italian man is actually nuts in love or just a manipulative viral-video hound.

You decide:

Clooney was in town to promote his new film, The Men Who Stare at Goats. The journalist was in town to promote his shamelessness.

If only I were so bold, perhaps Ashton Kutcher would've kissed me by now.

Yikes. I found that very embarrassing. It was simply so desperate, and inappropriate for the venue. Kinda had the feeling of stalking.

Clooney handled it like a true gentleman. I think the Italian might have had a better chance had he asked him to a 5-star restaurant. What a classy guy!

No. But ask me about a different celebrity and we've got even odds.

See, after all the terrible things we say, some guys (and gals) who are truly high-class and first rate do come out of places like Kentucky.

[George was born in Lexington. Others are singer Wynonna Judd (born in Ashland) and her half-sister, actress Ashley Judd (born in California, but grew up in Lexington). And we mustn't forget super-comedienne and fellow sister Lily Tomlin, whose parents are from Paducah.]

Good point, A.J.! And one I should remember when I'm tempted to support the south to secede.
