Clooney Explains Himself Over Suicidal Comments

LATEST: GEORGE CLOONEY has lashed out at reports he contemplated suicide at the beginning of the year (05), insisting his comments were misrepresented in a British broadsheet.

Talking about the horrific pain he experienced after suffering a brain injury while filming forthcoming movie SYRIANA last Christmas (05), Clooney allegedly told the newspaper he considered ending his life because he was in so much agony.

But, in a statement released yesterday (24OCT05), Clooney quickly explained his comments.

He said, "I think, if you listen to the piece, I certainly did not talk about wanting to kill myself. I was talking about the idea of living for years in that kind of pain."

Clooney ended his brief statement with a message to all publications who embellish interviews: "Please don't use my words out of context."
