George Clooney is reportedly considering a career in politics and aiming to join in the Democrats' 2016 election campaign.

A source told the Daily Mirror that the 53-year-old is setting his sights on the next US election, "He has big ambitions and aims to get into politics imminently. He wants to do more humanitarian work and hopes to join the Democrats' 2016 election campaign."

In February Clooney denied any aspirations to get into politics, telling Bang Showbiz, "I like the ability to shine light and make it loud. But boy, the idea of administrating and legislating - what a nightmare."
