Like many of you, the loins stopped quivering for Clooney after that embarrassing little tussle with Fabio. Seriously... losing your cool over Fabio??? Giving Fabio an extra five minutes he doesn’t deserve?

It was George’s darkest day. And the worst blemish on an otherwise charming resumé. That and his predilection for cheap ass women, though his rep these days appears to be balls deep in strategy trying to convince the public and the MiniVan Majority that Sarah Larsen is practically a member of Mensa.

What’s great about George however is that he is the ultimate salesman. George recognises when he’s made a mistake, he’s mature enough to go about owning it to his advantage. Eventually.

New article in Esquire – George addresses the Fabio Affair:

"Yeah, that"s probably true (that Fabio could hurt me). 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."

George also engages in a little self googling during the interview – comes across a website proclaiming him Gay, Gay, Gay! His answer: "No, I"m gay, gay. The third gay – that was pushing it."


On his height issues:

"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."

No, he’s not three foot five. But he’s not he 5 ft 11 People Magazine wants you to believe he is either. We were right next to him for over an hour on the balcony at the Hotel du Cap last May during Cannes. I remember Dylan, who is 6 ft, kept insisting George was wee. George isn’t wee but at one point they were back to back. Dylan was noticeably taller. Clooney on his best day is 5 ft 10.
