George Clooney and Scarlett Johansson have more in common than their A-list star status: both have had to shoot down reports they're e-mail buddies of presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama.
Clooney is flatly denying a report in the Los Angeles Times that he "frequently text messages the Illinois senator with whom he's been friends for many years."
"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. "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."
