and Sarah Larson may be getting serious
, but there is no wedding imminent, the actor has declared after a published story out of Europe claimed the pair had gotten secretly engaged.
"These reports are not true," Clooney said through his Los Angeles-based rep, Stan Rosenfield.
Britain's Marie Claire
posted a story on Monday, under the headline, "George Clooney to Marry?" The article quoted a restaurant worker in the Italian town where the Oscar winner, 46, has a villa as saying Clooney and Larson are engaged. The story originated from an Italian newspaper.
In terms of the couple's relationship, the two have been dating for less than a year, and Larsen accompanied Clooney to the Oscars
– the first girlfriend ever to go with him to the event.
Not that it was Larson's first red carpet experience. The onetime Fear Factor
winner had her "coming out" as Clooney's girlfriend
at last fall's Venice and Deauville film festivals.
