Movie star and ladies' man George Clooney has admitted that he's "lonely" and has "a very tough time getting to sleep" sleeping in his king size bed. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the Ides of March actor talked about being single and how he has difficulty switching off from the world and as a result often wakes up five times every night. Despite having women throwing themselves at his feet, the 50-year-old confessed that he feels lonely every so often, especially at public events. Clooney, who has dated the likes of Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis and British presenter Lisa Snowdon in the past, said: "Anyone would be lying if they said they didn't get lonely at times. "The loneliest you will get is in the most public of arenas: You will go to a place and end up in the smallest compartment possible, because it’s a distraction to everybody, and you end up not getting to enjoy it like everyone else."
