George Clooney Once Received A Book Of Poems From Russell Crowe

George Clooney has a few choice words for Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio.

During his recent interview with the folks at Esquire magazine, the Monuments Men star discussed the book of poetry he once received from the Gladiator star as an apology. Apparently Crowe felt bad about some of the things he said in the past.

According to Female First, Russell Crowe had a problem with George Clooney using his celebrity to sell everything from booze to suits. When Clooney compared his ad work to Crowe’s band 30 Odd Foot of Grunt, the Man of Steel star lost his cool.

“I had a good laugh when Clooney tried to compare doing ads for suits, a car, and a drink to what I do as a musician. An endorsement is about money My music is from the heart. I believe if you take on characters for a living you can’t make yourself into an icon in order to sell a pair of shoes,” Crowe said.

To apologize for calling George Clooney a “sellout” and “Frank Sinatra wannabe,” the Australian actor sent the Intolerable Cruelty star a present.

“The truth is that [Russell Crowe] did send me a book of poems to apologize for insulting the s*** out of me, which he did,” Clooney told the publication.

The actor also dished on the confrontation he had with Leonard DiCaprio’s friend while playing a friendly round of basketball. Despite saying they were going to kick Clooney’s “a**” during the game, The Departed star’s pals quickly discovered that the truth was much different.

“And 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,’George pondered. I’m not sure if Leo has someone like that,” he told Esquire.

To be perfectly honest, George Clooney doesn’t really have a lot of time at the moment to feud with his fellow celebrities. When he’s not addressing endless rumors about his rumored relationship, the actor and director is putting the finishing touches on his upcoming historical comedy The Monuments Men.

The Inquisitr previously reported that Clooney’s latest directorial effort was recently bumped to 2014 since the picture’s special effects weren’t quite ready for mass consumption. Instead of hitting theaters this December, the movie should arrive next spring.
