London: Actor Shia Labeouf says he wants to be diplomatic like George Clooney when it comes to public interaction.

The actor, who has found himself in trouble a number of times, says he`d rather deal with them in a diplomatic way and avoid the publicity backlash. Labeouf fears his honesty makes people think he`s unpleasant and ungrateful, femalefirst.co.uk reports.

"I would like to be George Clooney - diplomatic. I just don`t have the wherewithal yet or the inner serenity. My bulls**t meter is tuned very sensitive. The minute it (drama) starts kicking up, I get back to truth," Labeouf told Details magazine.
