The Live Like You Were Dying hitmaker returns to the big screen in Disney's new fantasy film, which also features Clooney and he wasn't taking any chances when it came to the leading man's famous charm and good looks.

MCGraw tells U.S. chat show The Talk, "My wife was particularly excited about the movie. Luckily for me, I only had a day or two with George, so there wasn't any time for her to come out and develop any sort of relationship with George.

"It was so quick and she was busy, so I tried to plan it so that she couldn't show up. You don't want your wife hanging around with George Clooney - because then you look like mud."
