George Clooney Is On a Roll Lately

George Clooney is a man of relatively few words in the sense that you don’t see his grill in your face every day on the front of tabloid magazines and gossip sites like this one. However, he’s promoting a new movie now, so he’s doing some mag covers – classy publications only, of course – and has been spewing out gems to the likes of GQ and now, Esquire.

So, what’s the Silver Fox ranting about this time around? Oh, just Twitter and how stupid celebrities who are on social networking are. Well, can’t argue with that.

In an exclusive interview conducted at the superstar’s LA home, editor Alex Bilmes talks to Clooney about the pro and cons of fame, life as a single man and the endless Internet gossip about his sexuality.

On being a celebrity, he says: “Not that I’m comparing myself to Clark Gable or whoever but they couldn’t survive in this environment. They’d punch the shit out of some people. It requires a kind of Zen quality.”

The Gravity star also shares his views on social media, saying: “I think anyone who is famous is a moron if they’re on Twitter. It’s just stupid.”

Well, I mean, Twitter is really useful to keep up on news and it’s a good way for actors/musicians to keep their fans updated on their projects and tour dates, etc. There’s also the fact that they can forge a more “personal” relationship with their fans, which is, in this day and age, really important. An artist has to be liked, has to seem accessible. I think this probably applies slightly more to pop stars than it does to actors, per se, but I think George sorta seems like a grumpy old man with this. He doesn’t understand the role technology plays in the careers of young artists so he dubs it “stupid”. Oh, dear.

George Clooney Just Hasn’t Met the Right One Yet, That’s All

George Clooney is the poster child for bachelorhood. Sure, he’s had some “long term” relationships, but everyone has always known that he would never, ever tie the knot. It’s like he’s allergic to weddings. He was married to someone called Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993 but swore off marriage after then. Damn, dude, was it that bad?

In any case, his aversion to locking shit down via legal documents has long been part of the Clooney lure, and it’s almost an endearing part of his personality at this point (for those who aren’t dating him, I suppose). But George has still got heart and says that he just hasn’t met the greatest love of his life yet. What will happen when he does? Well, they’ll probably date for a couple of years until she decides she DOES want to get married (even though she said she was totally fine with not tying the knot when the relationship started) and that she wants kids (which he doesn’t) and it’ll all go to shit and then he’ll find someone new.

What, too cynical?

I bet you’re wondering what George’s ideal woman is like, too, eh? Here’s what he told W Magazine:

“When I was a kid, I was in love with Audrey Hepburn. I watched Roman Holiday when I was 11, and I thought she was as elegant as anything I’d ever seen. And I fell madly in love with her.

“I also always loved Grace Kelly. I mean, when she comes out of the water in To Catch a Thief, I thought, ‘That’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen’.”

Well, there you go, women. Just look like an old Hollywood actress and George Clooney might fall madly in love with you!

Side note: What in Georges Seurat hell is that picture? AWFUL.

George Clooney Is Not A Fan Of Russell Crowe


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?
