I had to postpone movie after Obama election: Clooney

London: Hollywood star George Clooney says he has to put his new movie `Ides of March` on hold after US President Barack Obama was elected.

Clooney, 50, stars as a Democratic presidential candidate in the new film, alongside Ryan Gosling as a campaign worker, Daily Star reported.

"We were in pre-production on this film in 2007, before the Obama election. And then we realised that a good portion of the country was elated with what happened in that election, so we had to shelve the movie until people were cynical again," he said.

The `Ocean`s Thirteen` actor says he began work on the film in 2007, a year before Obama won the 2008 American presidential election.
