George Clooney has ruled out running for political office.

The 54-year-old actor admitted he would hate to be a politician as it looks like ''hell''.

Speaking during a press conference for 'Our Brand Is Crisis', he said: ''I've been asked that for almost 20 years now and the answer is just no. Who would ever want to live like that? I'm friends with a lot of those guys and I just think it's hell.''

While George has no interest in entering politics, he praised those who choose to do so as he believes it is an extremely tough job.

He said: ''I commend people who go into public service because it's such a horrible way to get elected, it's such a horrible time while you're in office. I think people will argue over things they believed in six or eight years ago because it's not their guy saying it.''

Meanwhile, George recently admitted to feeling less intelligent than his human rights lawyer spouse Amal and doesn't think there's any question that she is smarter than him.

He quipped: ''I get to wear the trousers and she gets to be the smart one; that's a fair deal, that's a fair trade. I was asked, you know, 'Is she the smart one in the family?' and I don't think anyone would argue with that, do you?

''Often times I feel like an idiot talking to my own wife. It's never good.''
