George Clooney wants Ewan McGregor to take acting lessons from a goat.

The Hollywood heartthrob - who stars alongside the Scottish actor in new movie 'The Men Who Stare at Goats' - joked the animals in the film were more talented than some of the cast.

He said: "I'm now working with goats, we spent a lot of time together. The goat I had to stare out was a great actor - if you told him to do something he would. Now if I only I had got Ewan to take lessons from him we'd be onto a winner!

"But although they were good, I don't think I want to be working with animals again in the near future!"

However, George insists it was great working with Ewan in the comedy film about the Iraq war, because he is so down to earth.

He added to BANG Showbiz: "I was shocked at how fun and normal Ewan is. We would talk about the motorcycle trips he takes across the world - he's a really interesting guy. He's good to work with as he puts his work first and when that's done you know you can have some fun. He's just a great guy."
