Single? So is Bill Murray.

You read that right, ladies and gentlemen: The Internet's favorite person is romantically unattached. On Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show Wednesday, the shock jock asked the actor point-blank: "Is there something you question in your own life on why you haven't found that great love of your life?"

The Monuments Men star, 64, replied candidly, saying, "I do think about that...I'm not sure what I'm getting done here. I have kids that I'm responsible for. I don't think I'm lonely...There's a lot that I need to do that I'm not doing. We're kind of ugly if we look really hard."

Murray, who has six children from two ex-wives, clarified to Howard. "I don't think I'm lonely."

He did admit, though, it "would be nice to go to some of these things," like George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's recent Venice, Italy, wedding, "and have a date."

"But," he clarified, "there's a lot that I am not doing that I need to do."

Like?  "Just some things like working on yourself or self-development or something...becoming more connected to myself," he said.

"I don''t have a problem connecting with people," he said, noting that the problem is "connecting with myself."

"If I am not really committing myself to that," he said, "then it's better that I don't have a different person."

OK, well, once Bill's good and ready, maybe the new Mrs. Clooney can introduce him to one of her single gal pals!
