George cancels appearances

George Clooney has been forced to cancel some press appearances to promote Ocean's Twelve after aggravating a ruptured disc in his back.

The star has pulled out of appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey's show while he recovers.

Insiders claim he's in too much pain to travel reports

The new sequel, opening next week in the US, is directed by original Ocean's Eleven helmer Steven Soderbergh and also stars Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Julia Roberts.

The film will open in the UK on February 4.
