This is not your typical George Clooney interview that we’re used to seeing! In the December issue of Esquire magazine, the “Gravity” actor takes shots at fellow A-listers Russell Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Ashton Kutcher.
The Oscar winner speaks openly about Russell’s attempts to smooth things over after he called George a “sellout” and a “Frank Sinatra wannabe.”
“The truth is that (Crowe) did send me a book of poems to apologize for insulting the s--t out of me,” shares George of the “Gladiator” star. “He really went after me. I think he said ‘I was misquoted,’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah whatever.’”
And it appears that the actor is not a fan of bad sportsmanship either. He also name-drops birthday boy Leonardo DiCaprio, who he accuses of trash talking during a pickup game along with his posse. But the 52-year-old’s team came out victorious, beating Leo’s 11-0. “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,” George said. “I’m not sure Leo has someone like that.”
The last of the actor’s targets? Twitter fanatic Ashton Kutcher. “I mean, when you see, like, Ashton Kutcher coming out and going, you know, ‘Everybody leave Joe Paterno alone,’ or whatever he said, you just go ‘Fifteen minutes longer (in the) thought process and probably you wouldn’t have done that,’” says George.
The one A-lister who got by with no hits to his reputation...George’s good friend Brad Pitt, his co-star in the “Ocean’s” movies. He credited Brad for “carrying [his film] World War Z” to the “finish line” despite having unbelievably intense re-shoots.
