It seems the Clooney trash-talking train hasn’t boarded.  During the Golden Globes, he made a jab at Jack Abramoff, and during Clooney’s recent appearance on Larry King made no apologies.  But what about Crowe, does Clooney think that their feud has been settled.  In an effort to stir the pot, here is a repost of Crowe’s interview in GQ last year:

Crowe
"I don’t use my celebrity to make a living. I don’t do
ads for suits in Spain like George Clooney or  cigarettes in Japan like
Harrison Ford. And on one level, people go: ‘Well, more fault to you, mate, because there’s free money to be handed out." "…to me it’s kind of sacrilegious. It’s a complete contradiction of
the
fucking social contract you have with your audience. I mean, Robert
de Niro’s advertising American Express."

Clooney’s response to Crowe’s comments:

Clooney"I’m glad he set us straight. Because Harrison, Bob
and I were putting a band together called Grunting For 30 Feet, and
that would also fall under the heading of ‘bad use of celebrity’.
Thanks for the heads up."

Now all we can do is sit and wait for Round 2, which should take place during the Oscars Sunday March 5th.
