George Clooney got the ole Batclaws out when he lashed out at Russell Crowe, and I think that’s great, because Russell Crowe is kind of a dick. In an interview with Esquire magazine, Mr. Clooney said (via E Online),
He picked a fight with me. He started it for no reason at all. He put out this thing saying, ‘George Clooney, Harrison Ford, and Robert De Niro are sellouts’…He really went after me. And so I sent him a note going, ‘Dude, the only people who succeed when two famous people are fighting is People magazine. What the f-ck is wrong with you?
WORD. His publicist backs up the statement, saying, “George was asked about it and told the truth.” You go, Clooney!
Who do you think is more insufferable: Russell Crowe or George Clooney?

He throws some MAJOR shade in this interview. It is fabulous.
This asshole right here loves George. Ever since I saw him do his Dapper Dan thang in Oh Brother! Where Art Thou, I began to fancy him. Didn’t wanna. but the charisma cannot be denied. He also rules in The Men Who Stare At Goats, Burn After Reading, and so mucho more, he’s just the bees knees. Dig that honesty the most – TELL it, G.C.
Just from having read about these two actors over the years (yes, in People, too!), I get the impression that Clooney is far more intelligent than Crowe will ever be.
So the asshat award, as far as I’m concerned, goes to Russell Crowe!
I agree with Clooney, But anyway letting this get out that he wrote a letter to Crowe is continuing a public fight where only “people magazine wins”. Kinda negates your point when you include yourself in it.
