Clooney Puts His Money Where His Mouth Is
By Anne Howard
Los Angeles, CA (rushprnews) March 30, 2007 – George Clooney is challenging Â anyone to prove that he leaked over Â cyberspace the obscenities-laced footage of Lily Tomlin and director David O. Russellâ€™s infamous battle of words on the set of â€œI Heart Huckabeesâ€ shot in 2004, and to further make his point heâ€™s betting a million dollars for proof of the contrary.Â
In a statement released yesterday to multiple media outlets, he stated, “Contrary to popular opinion, neither the sound man, Ed Tise, nor yours truly sent in the David O. Russell tape. I saw it when we were working on “Ocean’s 12,” and there have been quite a few copies traveling around town for the last couple of years. Any rumor that either of us put it on the Internet is simply false. Â Â And I’d offer a million bucks to anyone who would prove otherwise. Â Your fan, George Clooney”.
Clooney is suspected to have made the leak because of his reputation as a prankster and his well known fallen-out with director David Oâ€™Russell during the making of the film Three Kings.Â Â Â
Clooney never shy with his words stands by his challenge.Â
