George Clooney is ''marrying up''.

The 'Monuments Men' actor is expected to marry Amal Alamuddin - who he got engaged to in April - in September and he insists he is the lucky one in the relationship.

He told Variety: ''I'm marrying up.''

While the 53-year-old hunk is used to speculation about his personal life, he recently spoke out to slam claims Amal's mother objected to their marriage on religious grounds, and he admits it was ''fun'' to ''slap'' the false report.

He said: ''It's just fun to slap those bad guys every once in a while, knock 'em around...

''I would sit with my friends and we'd just go, 'So they just sat at a computer and just went, 'OK, this is what I'm gonna say today.' I mean, literally, because you just go 'There isn't literally an element of truth in this.'

''You just laugh, and let it go. I'm used to it after all these years.''

However, the 'Gravity' actor - who was previously married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993 - insisted he chooses his battles wisely and won't comment on every piece of speculation about his life.

He added: ''That's why you pick your fights at a tabloid. Every day they write things that aren't true, but every once in a while they write something that is actually dangerous to your family, and it's probably not true. And that's the one you pick.''
