George's spat with Russel Crowe

It's an old one but I've just found it and it made me laugh, so sharing it here. Note that this story is 6 years old now.

Los Angeles, Feb 19 2005

George Clooney has hit back at Hollywood rival Russell Crowe after the "Gladiator" actor publicly slammed stars who appear in commercials.

"I don't use my celebrity (status) to make a living. To me it's kind of sacrilegious - it's a complete contradiction of the (bleep) social contract you have with your audience," the Internet Media Database quoted Crowe as saying.

Speaking to an Australian magazine, the Oscar winner was particularly scathing of Clooney, Harrison Ford and Robert De Niro, who have all plugged products on television outside the US.

Clooney has now hit back, suggesting that Crowe used his standing to promote his rock band "30 Odd Foot Of Grunts".

The "Ocean's Twelve" star took a dig at Crowe: "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'."

LOL Oh gawd that was a bad band and they only got a record deal because of Russell of course he used his celebrity. I told you Russell is a dick and always has been. Look at how well his career is and look at George that alone tells you which one is the smartest. I always thought it was sour grapes cause no one wanted him to promote anything it's his own fault for throwing things and taking himself way too seriously. I notice he didn't say anything about Nicole or Hugh.....
