The Oscar winner has been involved in politics for years and currently fronts a Sudan action campaign. Many fans believe his marriage to top human rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin, will prompt Clooney to take a more serious interest in global and national affairs, but the movie star has no interest in becoming a state senator.

"I've been asked about that for almost 20 years now," he tells WENN. "The answer is just no. I mean who would ever wanna live like that?

"I'm friends with a lot of those guys and I just think it's hell. I commend people who go into public service, because it's just such a horrible way to get elected. It's such a horrible time while you're in office. No, I wouldn't want to be in politics; I have no interest in it."

Clooney does, however, plan to become even more involved with "getting things done that are important to me".

"I believe in the political process and I believe that government at its best is designed to look after the people that can't look after themselves," he adds. "I think that's our responsibility to hold our government to task for that. I consider that as each of our responsibility as citizens.

"I'm always frustrated by it and it moves incrementally forward and sometimes it's three steps backwards, but I still very much believe in the process and I will continue to be as much a part of it as I can be because I'm a citizen of the country."

Clooney's dad Nick had a taste of politics - he ran as a Democrat in the 2004 election for a seat in the House of Representatives representing Kentucky's fourth Congressional District. He lost the open seat to Republican Geoff Davis, and announced his career in politics was over during his concession speech.
