Hollywood stars George Clooney and Matt Damon have mocked their OCEAN'S ELEVEN co-star Brad Pitt for losing out on the Sexiest Man Alive title to Jude Law.

The hunky TROY star was named Sexiest Man Alive by America's PEOPLE magazine in 2000 and 1994 and has been a regular figure in the top five heart-throbs over the past few years.

After Pitt joked about Clooney's 'upset' at being eclipsed by Pierce Brosnan in 2001, smirking, "George is a little bummed out that he lost the People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive cover this year to Pierce Brosnan. He's busy licking his wounds, so be nice to him," Clooney is now getting his own back.

The former ER star laughs, "Pretty boy Pitt, he's been a bit upset because of the sexiest man thing.

"He's down. It hurt him. He knows that we're going to tee off on him."

Damon adds, "Brad has been talking about it. I'm friends with Jude because we did THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY together and I'm a little worried for him because Brad it really angry."
