Sorry, ladies, George Clooney says he's getting hitched, and it isn't to you.

At a press conference for the Venice premiere of his latest movie, Men Who Stare at Goats, Hollywood's perpetual bachelor, 48, says that special person is ... Goats director Grant Heslov.


"Grant and I are actually announcing our wedding while we are here," Clooney joked Tuesday. "I don't quite know how to answer that question, but I can read your mind again and I know what you're thinking."

Goats, which also stars Ewan MacGregor, is a comedy about the CIA's program for researching psychic powers. Clooney has been publicly seen on the arm of Italian TV presenter Elisabetta Canalis, and arrived with her at the Venice Film Festival Monday.

But that knowledge didn't stop a male reporter from stripping down to his boxer shorts and a necktie and blurting out to the star: "I'm gay, George. I want you, George! Come with me, George!"

Sometimes people take "a big chance," Clooney responded with a smile. "Only it doesn't really work."
