George Clooney "Still Upset" at losing Thelma and Louise role to Brad Pitt

I think they're overstating this a little bit - I don't think George is lying awake at night stewing over this any more!

George Clooney still upset at losing out on Thelma & Louise role

George Clooney is still upset at losing a role to Brad Pitt in Thelma & Louise.

In the 1991 hit film Pitt played JD, a robber out on parole who steals from the title characters, in a part that became his breakout role.

But in a light-hearted moment in a Q&A session at the Telluride Film Festival, Clooney revealed he had gone for the part, too.

“The funniest thing is, I didn’t watch that movie for a long time,” the actor-director told The Hollywood Reporter.

“I was really stuck doing a lot of bad TV at that time. And I had auditioned and auditioned, and it got right down to Brad and I, and he got it. And I just couldn’t watch that movie for a couple of years.”

But he said he now realizes the right man won the part.

“When I saw it, I thought actually that was the right choice,” he added. “He was really good in it, and I would have f---ed it up somehow.”

The Academy of Arts and Sciences (the ones who give out the Oscars) recently had a 20th Anniversary showing of Thelma & Louise in Los Angeles.

They restored the film and this was the first time it had been viewed on the big screen in a long time. Geena Davis showed up to do a Q&A after the film.

We didn't stay for that portion of the event but seeing the film after such a long time I found it held up nicely. Really enjoyed Brad's work in the film.

There are different stories about Clooney in the Thelma and Louise role. He said at an interview that he was ultimately glad he didn't get the part because Brad played a bad boy. So many different versions.
