Clooneys not the brightest spark on the boulevard: Rupert EverettDecember 16th, 2007 - 3:52 pm ICT by admin
London, Dec 16 (ANI): British actor Rupert Everett has launched a scathing attack at actor George Clooney, describing him as not the brightest spark on the boulevard.
In a recent interview with The Independent, the 48-year-old said that Clooneys most successful Oceans films are a cancer to world culture.
Clooney thinks that, provided he does films which are politically committed, hes allowed to do Oceans 11, 12 and 13. But the Oceans movies are a cancer to world culture. Theyre destroying us, Times Online quoted him, as saying.
People in America cant think about Iraq now all they care about is Jennifer Lopezs bottom. We are responsible for the blob-i-sation of the world by entertainment.
[Clooney] is not the brightest spark on the boulevard. Hell be president one day. Mark my words, if hes straight, hell be president, he added.
Everett also attacked Hollywood legends Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, branding them “tragic parodies” of the icons they once were.
The actor insisted that the film industry has deteriorated into petty, celebrity-obsessed “trash, and blames the bigwigs for keeping up the trend.
“De Niro, (Robert) Redford, (Diane) Keaton, (Woody) Allen, Pacino they’re all just tragic parodies of themselves. Al Pacino looks like a mad old freak now. I say give it a rest, or go and do some serious stuff, he said. (ANI)
