George Clooney dissed not one but two celebrities in a recent interview with Esquire.
First, Clooney took on Leonardo DiCaprio. He recalled playing basketball with Leo, telling the magazine, "I know I can play. I also know that you don’t talk [crap] unless you can play. And the thing about playing Leo is you have all these guys talking [crap]." After beating DiCaprio's team three straight games, Clooney says, "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 wasn't even that nice with Russell Crowe, who once insulted him for doing ads for suits in Spain. Clooney countered by saying Crowe's band would "also fall under the heading of bad use of celebrity." Crowe then called Clooney a "Frank Sinatra wannabe." Now in the Esquire interview, Clooney says, "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 [bleep] is wrong with you?’”
