There has been a long-running rumor is Hollywood that perma-bachelor George Clooney is actually gay. So what did he have to say when asked about it?

Well, in a recent interview with The Advocate, Clooney addresses the rumors and more.

I think it’s funny, but the last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, “These are lies!” That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community. I’m not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I’m very happy in it. Who does it hurt if someone thinks I’m gay? I’ll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don’t give a ****.

So technically, he hasn't denied the rumors, but he's dated Kelly Preston, Elisabetta Canalis, and now Stacy Keibler, and plenty more of some of the most beautiful women in the world.

I really couldn't care less who he dates, unless he decides to date me (but that's a VERY different blog).

I will say that I love how he mysteriously addresses these rumors. It's part of that Clooney charm.
