Los Angeles: George Clooney says he feels "lonely" while attending public events and says he goes through "a very tough time" sleeping.

"Turning off the television causes me to think, and once I start that vision roaring, I have a very tough time getting to sleep. I`m able to numb out. Without question, I wake every night five times," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Clooney as saying.

"Anyone would be lying if they said they didn`t get lonely at times. The loneliest you will get is in the most public of arenas - You will go to a place and end up in the smallest compartment possible, because it`s a distraction to everybody, and you end up not getting to enjoy it like everyone else," he added.
