Clooney, Pitt have fun with reporters

VENICE, Italy - George Clooney and Brad Pitt: Bachelor and family man.

Inevitably, a news conference Wednesday promoting their new Coen brothers film, 'Burn After Reading,' turned to the birth of Pitt's twins with partner Angelina Jolie, and whether his good friend would ever settle down.

Clooney, 47, put on a look of mock bemusement.

'I am so surprised to hear that question. That is honestly the first time I have been asked that,' Clooney said. 'I am getting married and having a child today.'

Pitt, whose brood has grown to six children with the birth of twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline last month, offered to share his children with Clooney, adding deadpan: 'I'll have two more by next year.'

The movie, which premieres Wednesday at the Venice Film Festival, is a tale about idiots - and what happens when their worlds collide.
