Actor George Clooney has refused to confirm or deny reports he is dating Teri Hatcher, insisting he never speaks about his private life.

The Perfect Storm actor has enjoyed relationships with English model LISA SNOWDON, French waitress CELINE BALITRAN and Renee Zellweger, but has never divulged details to the media.

When asked by US broadcaster Larry King if he was romancing the Desperate Housewives actress on his show LARRY KING LIVE last night (16FEB06), Clooney stipulated the topic was off-limits.

He says, "In 15 years of doing relationships in the public eye, I never talked about that part of my life ever.

"I'm not a public figure. I don't owe the public that.

"Whatever you decide to share, you decide. I only give what I decide is fair."
