George Clooney has been at the top of the A-list for years now, but that doesn’t mean he’s been blinded by Hollywood.
The actor gave an interview to “Esquire” in which he called out a few of his fellow movie stars for bad behavior, including Russell Crowe and – somewhat surprisingly – Leonardo DiCaprio.
Clooney and his friends beat out DiCaprio at basketball in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where he says the “Titanic” star’s attitude was less than sportsmanlike.
“We’re like 50 years old, and we beat them three straight: 11-0, 11-0, 11-0,” he said (via “Esquire”). “And 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.”
Clooney had a little less tact when it came to Crowe, who made headlines several years ago for calling him out, along with Harrison Ford and Robert De Niro, out for doing TV commercials.
“And I put out a statement saying, ‘He’s probably right. And I’m glad he told us, ‘cause Bob and Harrison and I were also thinking about starting a band, which would also fall under the heading of bad use of celebrity,’” he joked, adding, “And that’s when he really went off on me. ‘Who the f*** does this guy think he is? He’s a Frank Sinatra wannabe.’”
