A representative for Steven Spielberg has dismissed rumours the famed director is planning to swap Hollywood for Washington, D.C. with a move into politics.

The Jaws filmmaker was reported to have agreed to become an adviser to the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.

An article published in The Washington Post suggested Spielberg would help on a political public relations campaign for Pelosi, but the director's publicist Mavin Levy is adamant the story is not true.

Levy says, "Today's story regarding Nancy Pelosi made a reference to Steven Spielberg that requires a response. I can say as a long-time spokesman for Steven that he has made it his career to direct actors, not political figures."
