The Cloonmeister General strikes again. George Clooney has been in the full swing of awards season campaigning, and I guess he needed to take a break from kissing ass. Instead, he went the complete opposite direction and started shading his fellow A-list movie stars. And by shading, I mean SHADING.
George covers Esquire Magazine, and he doesn’t hold back on his thoughts on his fellow movie stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Russell Crowe. The difference is that he has nary a bad thing to say about bestie Brad, but his comments on Leo and Russell aren’t so nice. When it comes to Leo, he basically states that Leo has a horrible group of friends around him, explaining that when he played basketball with Leo and his posse, “The discrepancy between their game and how they talked about their game made me think of how important it is to have someone in your life to tell you what’s what. I’m not sure if Leo has someone like that.” Kind of a big grudge to have over a basketball game, no?
But even that’s nothing compared to his comments about Russell Crowe. He explains that Russell said some shitty things about him to the press and compared him to a ‘Frank Sinatra wannabe‘, but when he got nominated for several Oscars and Russell realized they would be sharing awards season, he fessed up and apologized. George explains in detail, “So he sends me a disc of his music and a thing of his poetry. I think he said, ‘I was all misquoted,’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah. Whatever.’”
That’s not all. He also disses Ashton Kutcher and his usage of Twitter, and pretty much every other celebrity who uses Twitter and social media. Basically, he aint holding back. George has a lot of important thoughts about this, you guys!
Even as I make fun of him, I’m glad there’s one A-list movie star who doesn’t feel the need to self-censor all the time. It’s a refreshing change of pace.
