George Clooney has said he’s planning a trip to Ireland with his pal Bono.

The Hollywood actor is planning a trip here soon for a motorcycle tour with the U2 frontman.

He told TV3's Xpose of his intentions to travel here while he attended the UK premiere of The Monuments Men.

The handsome actor, who directed, acted in, produced and co-wrote the screenplay for the WWII movie, said that although the Bono is hoping to do a cycling tour, he has something else in mind.

“I’m actually planning to do a little trip to Ireland this summer so I’m going to try and get some motorcycles and get into Ireland.

“He [Bono] wants to do a bicycling tour but I think maybe we’ll just get him on a motorcycle.”

Xpose viewers heard that Bono has previously slated the actor’s singing skills but had high praise for his drinking and scrapping abilities to which George replied:

“Sure, yeah, I am Irish so I can still scrap it up a little bit.”

Despite the actor’s dashing good looks, George seemed slightly intimidated by French actor Jean Dujardin’s presence on the red carpet saying “Look at Jean Dujardin, Mr Good Looking over there”.

The Monuments Men also stars Matt Damon, John Goodman and Cate Blanchett. Clooney said that they had fun filming and he enjoyed telling a story that he had never heard before.

Gushing about his co-stars, George said there was no downside to working with them.

“Well they’re all fun. First of all they’re really nice although I don’t want people to know that. They’re good friends and they’re wonderful actors so there’s nothing wrong with it.”
