The ever-controversial Russell Crowe has caused a bit of a storm in a teacup by criticizing actors who make money by appearing in commercials.
Crow had said that he did not believe in using his celebrity to make a living and criticized actors like George Clooney, Harrison Ford and Robert De Niro who have all appeared in foreign adverts. Saying “it’s a complete contradiction of the social contract you have with your audience.”
Earlier in the week it was reported this caused an argument with Crowe and longtime friend Nicole Kidman and now George Clooney has hit back saying Crowe promoted his band “20 Odd Foot Grunts” using that very celebrity power.
He said: “I’m glad he set us straight. Because Harrison, Bob and I were putting a band together called Grunting For 30 Feet, and that would also fall under the heading of ‘bad use of celebrity’. Thanks for the heads up.”
