George Clooney avoids baby talk at premiere of the Fantastic Mr Fox

Walking down the red carpet at the premiere of the Fantastic Mr Fox film last night, all eyes were on George Clooney and his latest beau, Elisabetta Canalis.


The 48-year-old ladies man who voices the main character Mr Fox, a devoted family man, prompted questions on whether George intends to join the family way with his gorgeous Italian girlfriend Elisabetta, 30.

“I am going to adopt some of Brad Pitt’s. I owe him a few,” he joked when asked if he wants to become a daddy.

What best mate Brad thinks of George’s offer is unknown, but it seems the notorious bachelor isn’t heading into nappy-ville anytime soon!

Also spotted at the premiere in London for the opening of the London Film Festival, was mum-of-two Cindy Crawford, actress Thandie Newton with her daughters Ripley, 9, and Nico, 5, Sophie Dahl (whose Grandfather was Roald Dahl), Jonathan Ross and Bill Murray.

Based on the popular Roald Dahl story, Fantastic Mr Fox is about a devoted dad-fox who is up against angry farmers to save his family of baby foxes from getting evicted from their home. The film is released in cinemas on October 23.
