Clooney causes chaos in New York

Hollywood heart-throb George Clooney caused chaos when he turned up at an office building in New York for a photoshoot - with female workers clamouring to catch a glimpse of the star.

Clooney arrived at the Hearst building at 10am on Tuesday to shoot a layout for British film magazine Empire's 75th anniversary issue.

But news that the actor was in the vicinity soon spread, and groups of women began gathering in the lobby to wait for Clooney to emerge.

And, by the time the Clooney made his exit, the building was packed with admirers, all jostling to spot their idol.

A source tells New York Post gossip column PageSix: "All the fashionistas lost their cool. You couldn't even get to the elevators because of the throng of women. The women cut out of work to hang in the lobby and catch a glimpse of him."

But Clooney reportedly took the huge crowds in good spirits and "danced with different women" who work in the building.
