George Clooney's “one-on-one interview” with Hello! magazine in which he reportedly dished on his marriage to international human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin never happened, and the actor said he finds the fabrication "very disturbing."

The story, which was picked up by other celebrity outlets like Us Weekly and Vanity Fair, described how the Clooneys keep their marriage together despite their busy schedules, according to The Washington Post. The "article" appeared to be an attempt to dispel rumors that their relationship is on the rocks.

But on Friday, Hello! apologized to Clooney
and removed the piece from its website.

"Hello! Group has established that the interview it bought from the Famous agency had, in fact, been culled together from a series of interviews that took place over a period of time, and many of the quotes attributed to Mr. Clooney were never made by him," the magazine's statement said.

"Hello! Group bought the material in good faith from a trusted independent agent, who assured us it was an authentic one-to-one interview with Mr. Clooney, which we now accept was not the case. We are shocked and disappointed to discover that the representations that were made to the Hello! Group at the time of purchase of the material were not, in fact, true," the publication continued.

Clooney also issued his own statement, according to The Associated Press.

"I have not given an interview to Hello! magazine and the quotes attributed to me are not accurate," the actor said. "To have an 'exclusive interview' completely fabricated is something new, and a very disturbing trend."

Vanity Fair replaced its story with a statement explaining the situation. Us Weekly, though, still had its original version up without changes as of Monday morning.
