So, you want a famous actor to run for president? Sorry, George Clooney says he's not your man.

Downplaying any interest in running for higher office, the Ides of March director said at the Venice Film Festival: "If I make a mistake it's not going to cost 100,000 people their lives. I'm very happy telling stories. Films don't hurt people. They just get badly reviewed sometimes."

Clooney, 50, added: "I have a very nice life. I get to hang out with various seductive people, so I've no interest in [running for office]."
