London — Celebrity magazine Hello! has apologised to George Clooney for running an interview that the star says was "completely fabricated".

Quotes from the article — in which the actor supposedly talked about his marriage to British lawyer Amal Clooney — were picked up by other publications around the world.

But Clooney said in a statement: "I have not given an interview to Hello! magazine and the quotes attributed to me are not accurate."

He said "to have an 'exclusive interview' completely fabricated is something new, and a very disturbing trend."

Hello! said it had bought the interview in good faith from an agency, Famous. In a statement on Friday, it apologised "unreservedly to Mr. Clooney and his wife Amal for any distress that publication of this piece may have caused them."
