Actor George Clooney's reported engagement to LISA SNOWDON has been rubbished by the British TV presenter - because she refuses to live in America.

Earlier this week (begs20DEC04) sexy Snowdon was photographed sporting a glittering ring on her wedding finger, but Clooney's on/off girlfriend of three years admits she's too tied down to her Essex, England, roots to set up home in Hollywood.

Snowdon also insists she doesn't want a single aspect of her life to change at present.

She says, "I love my house. I have owned it for a few years now and I have spent a fortune doing it up. I love my life at the moment and I don't want to change it.

"I do a bit of everything and have a varied lifestyle. I enjoy everything I do and I don't think I could give that up."
