George Clooney Beginning To Think He Should Buy His Own Tuxedo

LOS ANGELES—Saying he didn't want to go overboard but thought it would be a pretty good investment considering his line of work, veteran actor George Clooney told reporters Wednesday he's been thinking about just going ahead and buying his own tuxedo.

Clooney added that because he travels so frequently, he is also considering buying a car instead of using a bus pass.
