Clooney Denies Reports: 'I Would Never Be Dumb Enough to Offer Policy Advice' to Obama

George Clooney hit back at reports that he "frequently text messages" Barack Obama to offer foreign policy advice Wednesday.

"I have never texted or e-mailed Senator Obama. And I'll offer a million dollars to anyone who could prove otherwise," Clooney said in a statement released by his publicist. "I've spent more time with Senator McCain (he did my TV show) then I have with Senator Obama. I would hope that my friend John McCain would join me in condemning this kind of politics."

The Los Angeles Times reported last week that the actor sends text messages from his blackberry to Obama, prompting British newspaper the Daily Mail to identify the actor as "an unofficial adviser to US Presidential front-runner Barack Obama." That story got lots of attention, earning a prime spot on the Drudge Report and becoming a hit in the conservative blogosphere.

Clooney flatly denied the report saying he has never offered any policy advice.

"Although I support Senator Obama I would never be dumb enough to offer policy advice to either candidate. They seem to be doing fine without me," the actor said.
