CLOONEY! He’s the best! I like him very much. He is good at his job, which is acting, and he’s the original Prankosaurus Rex. Also, the dude just does not seem to give a fuck. And I don’t mean in the way that, like, Ricky Gervais pretends like he doesn’t give a fuck where it’s like, well, if you don’t give a fuck, why are you on Twitter so much? But Clooney just makes movies and does FaceTime with Brad Pitt and goes to his Italian castle to relax because his back still hurts from Syriana or whatever. He’s very chill. Also this quote from him about how people think he is gay is great! From The Advocate (Via TheSuperficial):

The gay rumor has followed you for years.
I think it’s funny, but the last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, “These are lies!” That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community. I’m not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I’m very happy in it. Who does it hurt if someone thinks I’m gay? I’ll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don’t give a shit.

Here’s the thing about this: no one ever says this. People say the part about their private lives being private, which is true, and a perfectly fine thing to say. But no one ever says the part about how any hint of bristling or denying rumors actually helps to reinforce homophobia. Kevin Spacey danced around it last year in HIS breakout blog blockquote, but he didn’t actually seem to connect the dots between putting an end to bullying and his own distancing from this type of talk. I also like the part where George Clooney points out that it doesn’t hurt anyone for people to have the wrong idea about who you want to do sex to, and I also like the part where he talks about being dead. GEORGE CLOONEY! Love this guy. No homo.

  2. Does he go to rehearsal? Because that should probably settle the issue.

  3. I can’t tell if he’s pranking or not when the quote is in writing.

  4. This is great! Now if only Obama would say the same thing about people saying he’s Muslim.

    • There was a great quote during the 2008 election campaign from Colin Powell of all people saying basically the same thing. It was just after he endorsed him, I think?

    • As if the other side would ever believe anything, rationally said or not.

      And for Mr. Clooney, there is a great quote that someone had said not long ago, it was that Leonard guy from The Big Bang Theory. When asked if he was gay, he gave the most amazing answer of all times:

      “I haven’t really addressed those rumors because why defend yourself against something that isn’t offensive?”

      What is offensive, is “buying” yourself a gf thinking it would also buy you an Oscar.

  5. “But problematic social constructs and tacit encouragement of homophobia aside, I’m pretty open about every other part of my life and I keep banging these hot ladies, so…”

  6. I like Clooney, too. And the quote is undeniably great. But I’m confused because, for all of these years (2011, maybe some of 2010), I thought being a prankosaurus was a bad thing. Or is it ok for him, since he is the O.G. Prankosaurus Rex?

  7. He’s right. Who gives a shit if he’s gay? I mean really. John Cusack on the other hand, is he mayhaps gay?

  8. I actually waited on him about a year ago when he came into my restaurant, and he is indeed very cool. And handsome. Very handsome.

  10. Like Tom Hanks, I’m so glad whenever I see something that confirms my suspicions that George Clooney is a cool dude even when off-screen. Love those guys!

  11. George Clooney really does have it all! Wish there were more people like him.

  12. Spot on. Love YOU, Gabe. Pretty homo.

  13. Seems as good as a time as any to point out that he rescued his dog from a kill-shelter in L.A. And that he said that the pup was pretty much on death row when he got her.

    • That’s awesome! I guess the only dirt that can be dug up on him is that he shot Ryan Gosling in the crotch with a squirt gun. Annoying, but hardly mean spirited.

      I think videogum should give Mr. Clooney a lifelong Prankosaurus Pranking Pass.

      But pranks kind of are the worst, so it’s important that we still know about these things. Carry on!

  14. He probably also has a friend at Price Waterhouse but doesn’t go around braggin about it.

  15. I can’t confirm this because I’m unwilling to have it in my Google search history, but I’m pretty sure Hugh Piss Pants Jackman also said something similar.

  16. Spring is around the corner! What would be a great first date activity?My friend Jessie told me she met a lot of beautiful ladies and handsome porny guys on the site called datebi.c/o/m There are hundreds of thousands of bisexual singles and couples looking to explore their bisexuality. Come and have fun here!try
