George Clooney has admitted that he didn't know the Batman suit he wore he in Batman and Robin would feature nipples.

While on the red carpet for his new film, Gravity, in New York, Clooney was asked by MTV which suit was more uncomfortable, space or bat?

As always, Clooney gave an affable and self-effacing response, commenting, "Bat-suit, let's face it. Because the spacesuit was just uncomfortable for me, the Bat-suit was uncomfortable for all of the world."

Clooney then revealed that even he was shocked when noticed nipples on the costume, stating, "They put nipples on the damn thing. I didn't even know it until the film came out."

The interviewer was flabbergasted by Clooney's ignorance, and questioned how the former ER star couldn't have noticed the appendages.

Clooney noted, "You can't bend like this (he then bent his neck down) while you're Batman."

Clooney has developed into one of Hollywood's most distinguished and decorated leading men since he starred in the often ridiculed and admonished Batman film.

However, he is the first to admit that Joel Schumacher's cinematic abomination pales in significance to Christopher Nolan's recent stellar work on the franchise.

He even receives abuse for his performance to this day, noting in the same discussion, "Not even little kids [liked the film]. [People] who were little kids at the time come up and kick me."

Clooney has recently been repeatedly asked about starring as Batman since Ben Affleck was confirmed to be starring as the beloved Bruce Wayne in Zack Snyder's Batman vs Superman, the sequel to Man Of Steel.

Clooney even gave his opinion on Affleck's decision to star in the film, noting, "I am the least qualified person to comment on anyone playing the role of Batman since I so terribly destroyed the part. I tend to look at it like this - let's just see what the movie is before everyone starts beating [Affleck] up. He is a smart man, he knows what he is doing."
