George Clooney

George Clooney sat down with Esquire and conducted a Google search of his name for the April issue. It ends up stirring up some very interesting discussions about Fabio, gay gay gay rumors, and the height of Donald Trump.

When asked about his alleged feud with Fabio last fall (in which the model said he could beat Clooney up), the actor responds, “Yeah, that’s probably true. He’s a big guy. There is a moment when you are actually in the argument and you’re thinking, ‘If I do get beaten down by Fabio, that will be far worse than the pain. I wouldn’t shake that.”

Also found in the magazine’s Web search:

• When Esquire discovers a Web site that calls Clooney “gay, gay, gay,” the good-natured actor quips, “No, I’m gay, gay. The third gay – that was pushing it.”

• Donald Trump’s recent “short guy” comments about Clooney. George, who is 5- feet 11-inches tall, responds, “I saw Donald Trump on Larry King and he was saying, ‘Clooney is a very short guy. I mean he’s a tiny guy.’ I’ve met Donald Trump once, and I was sitting at a table. He came over, shook my hand, and walked away. I guess I looked about three foot five sitting at that table.”

• They also surface a quote from Rupert Everett criticizing Clooney’s Ocean’s movies as a “cancer,” to which Clooney replies: “Where did that come from? You kind of go, Dude, weren’t you in Dunston Checks in?”
