George Clooney is in Toronto for the Venice Film Festival and he brought his new lady with him. Stacy Keibler attended a few parties with him, and Clooney was impressed with how she handled herself. Stacy was very comfortable with the Hollywood crowd. She was mingling on her own and wasn’t just following him around like a puppy dog. A source told Us Weekly, "They were comfortable and affectionate and seemed socially poised as a couple. They worked together as a pair and also independently. Stacy really stood on her own and George didn't feel like he had to look after her."

Just because he’s ready to take Stacy out in public doesn’t mean he is ready to talk about his relationship. While Clooney was on the panel to promote his movie ‘The Ides of March’, one reporter foolishly asked him about his highly publicized relationships. He asked what was more difficult, directing or dating in the spotlight. Clooney berated him when he answered, “Well you know, it’s funny. I knew someone would do it. I’m a little disappointed it’s you. Everyone here is a little ashamed of you right now. Honestly.” Clooney then made the reporter tell his name to the whole crowd, so everyone knew who asked him that question. Then he said,  “Listen, I think it’s tremendous you asked the question, go back and tell your editor you asked the question.”
