George Clooney has a theory about why his stint as Batman was a disaster - no-one feels sorry for the troubled CAPED CRUSADER.

The movie hunk followed Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer as a big screen Batman in 1997's BATMAN + ROBIN, but the movie flopped - and now he thinks he knows why.

He says, "Nobody feels sorry for Batman. He's always miserable, and people go, 'Well, you live in a mansion, you drive the coolest cars, you've got all the coolest gadgets, you go out with the best-looking women.'

"No one wants to hear you whine."
