Actor didn't realise he was talking to prostitutes

George Clooney has revealed that he was fooled into being flattered by the attention of hookers when he was a young actor new to Hollywood. 

The Up In The Air actor didn’t realise they were prostitutes

‘On my very first day in LA, my cousin Miguel took me for a drive up Sunset Boulevard,’ George, 48, recalls in an interview with British Airways High Life magazine.

‘All these girls came up asking if we wanted to party. I said, “Girls love me, man!” Miguel just replied, “They’re hookers, you idiot”.’

George is dating Italian TV presenter Elisabetta Canalis, 31.
