(Newser) – In Venice for the film festival screening of his new movie, The Men Who Stare at Goats, George Clooney showed off new girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis—and fended off at least one aspiring boyfriend. The fan stripped down to his skivvies during a press conference, urging Clooney to "please take me" and begging for "just one kiss." Clooney quipped in reply, "It's hard when you take a big chance and it doesn't really work," E! reports. "It was a good try, though."
