George Clooney has long been plagued by rumours over his sexuality and now the 50 year-old has finally spoken out, saying that he doesn’t “give a s**t” if people think he is gay.
Despite a long list of beautiful girlfriends the Hollywood heartthrob has yet to tie the knot promoting people to wonder if he is hiding his true feelings.
The ‘Descendants’ star told Advocate Magazine: “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 s***.”
The star, who missed out on the Lead Actor Oscar last weekend is currently dating Stacy Kiebler,but is a keen advocate for gay rights and explained the main reason he has not spoken out before was because he didn’t want to offend the gay community.

Clooney revealed: “'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.”
The actor denied that he has been avoiding the topic of sexuality in his movies and would happily play a gay role if the script was right. He added: "I'm certainly not avoiding it. Whether it's about being gay or it just happens to have a gay character, if it's a great screenplay, let's go do it."
The hunk’s close friendship with Brad Pitt has only helped to fuel the rumours as his 'Oceans' co-star once joked that he would only marry his long-term love Angelina Jolie when Clooney could legally marry a man.
He admitted: “Brad has also joked that he’s not getting married until I can legally marry my partner.”
But the actor made it clear his friend had been joking: “He’s been funny about it, because he knows that the best and most effective way to end marriage inequality is to point out the ridiculousness of it.”
