Clooney Intent On Revenge Against Damon For Gay Joke

GEORGE CLOONEY has sworn revenge against pal MATT DAMON - after his OCEAN'S ELEVEN co-star joked to a foreign reporter the ageing hunk was set to marry his gay partner.
The Bourne Identity actor recently admitted he fuelled gossip Clooney was secretly in love with another man and that the couple planned to marry.
He told reporters at a press conference for the Venice Film Festival earlier this week (ends13Sep09), "Brad Pitt was there (Venice) doing interviews for Inglorious Basterds and I guess people had been asking him, 'When are you and Angelina Jolie going to get married?' and he finally just said, 'Me and Angelina will marry when George Clooney marries his boyfriend!'
"The thing is, you do that in America and they just laugh; you do that overseas and I guess something gets lost in translation, so at eight in the morning, I'm doing interviews and this Italian journalist comes to me and says, 'Matt, is it true what Brad say (sic)?' I had no idea what he was talking about so I just said, 'Of course, yeah.'
"And he says, 'Do you mean George Clooney has a boyfriend?' I'm trying to keep a straight face so I go, 'Yeah, of course he's got a boyfriend,' and he goes, 'You mean, he wants to marry him? You know this man?' And we've been doing this for years so I go, 'Yeah, I know this man, he's great, that's why we want them to get married!'"
But Clooney is not going to let the joke go unpunished - especially after a reporter stripped off and professed his love for the Hollywood star after he had been 'outed'.
The actor reveals, "I'm going to do something. I've got something big planned."

Yes, it is not very fair to poise a joke about your friend being a gay and having a boyfriend and going to marry his boyfriend. I think it is very unfair for George Clooney to have to undo himself now. It is also not fair to the woman he is dating now Elisabetta Canalis. I always believe that George should tie the knot and this will make him even more famous, more normal and less scandalous.

So making a joke about a class of humans who are denied civil rights, bashed and murdered throughout the world is funny to these people? First, off grew the $&@!! up. Second, educate yourself and respect all.
