The tabloids have created a lot of fake feuds between George Clooney and other celebrities. Gossip Cop has debunked several of the actor’s supposed battles with other stars. Here are a few rumors surrounding the subject.
Last August, Gossip Cop busted the Globe for falsely claiming Clooney was feuding with Will Smith because the Men in Black star was supposedly “trash-talking” him around Hollywood. The tabloid alleged that Smith found the fellow movie star to be “overrated and overpaid” and was jealous of him receiving lifetime achievement awards.
The story was based on claims from an anonymous “source,” but Clooney’s own spokesperson told us on the record that there’s never been an issue between him and Smith. Additionally, the two stars have crossed paths over the years and their interactions have always been friendly. Photos from the 2006 Producers Guild Awards show Clooney and Smith chatting on the red carpet and goofing around for the cameras.
Gossip Cop previously busted Star for wrongly reporting that Clooney had been feuding with Brad Pitt during the time Pitt was still with Angelina Jolie. The magazine maintained that Jolie never liked Clooney, resulting in a rift between him and his Ocean’s Eleven co-star, but the two men buried the hatched following Pitt’s separation.
In reality, however, Clooney spent plenty of time with both Pitt and Jolie during the time the exes were still together. In fact, there are several photos of the trio mingling at different red carpet events and awards shows over the years. The actress never came between the two actors, nor did they ever end a feud that never existed in the first place.
And finally, Gossip Cop called out OK! for making up a story about Clooney having a “long-running feud” with Tom Cruise. According to the outlet, Clooney strongly disliked the fellow actor and found it “pathetic” that he still insisted on starring in action movies at his age. The magazine further contended that Cruise somehow caught wind of how Clooney felt and was “not happy” about it. Sources close to both stars, however, assured us there was no truth to the narrative.
Meanwhile, Cruise offered a message of support to Clooney following the actor’s scooter accident in Italy last year. Cruise also congratulated the fellow actor on the birth of his twins during a 2017 interview. There’s clearly never been any animosity between the two stars. The ongoing saga about Clooney battling other celebrities is simply baseless.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
