George Clooney is setting the record straight!
According to E! Online the A-list actor is addressing the negative comments he made towards Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe in Esquire magazine.
The New York Daily News reports that the 52-year-old actor slammed his fellow famous leading men. Clooney called Crowe a “Frank Sinatra wannabe” and squashed his efforts to apologize after calling Clooney a “sellout.” The Gravity star also criticized DiCaprio for hanging out with a bad crowd and trash talking him during a game of basketball.
“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,” Clooney said. “I’m not sure if Leo has someone like that.”
The Academy Award winner’s publicist is now clearing the air and addressing his comments towards the Titanic star, saying, “The Leo comments were all made in fun about basketball.” The publicist continues, “Not about Leo’s life. The writer and George were laughing about basketball buddies.”
Even though Clooney’s comments towards Leo might have been taken out of context, It turns out the Descendants actor still feels the same about Crowe.
“As for the Russell Crowe story. George was asked about it and told the truth,” Clooney’s publicist said.
