George Clooney Feuds with Casino Owner Steve Wynn - Read GC's Latest Statement!

George Clooney Feuds with Casino Owner Steve Wynn - Read GC's Latest Statement!

George Clooney is firing back at casino billionaire Steve Wynn after Steve allegedly called President Obama an “a–hole” at a group dinner on April 23 attended by George.

The 52-year-old actor just released a lengthy statement via People:

Steve Wynn and I have met three times, two times for dinner. That is the extent of our knowledge of one another, so I will refrain from trying to categorize him based on the little time we’ve spent together, but I will not let his version of the truth go unchallenged.

“He now says he didn’t call the president an ‘a——.’ That is false. He bellowed ‘I voted for the a——,’ and then called him the same thing several more times as the dinner came to an abrupt end.”

“Again there were eight people at the table, eight witnesses. I did in turn, call him the same body part, and walked out. Again he can make up whatever story he wants, but these are the facts. He said I drank 16 shots of tequila. I didn’t drink one shot of tequila, not one. We were drinking but it was early and we still had two events to attend.”

“He said I live in a bubble. More of a bubble than Las Vegas? Honestly? He says I’m ‘molly coddled,’ that I’m surrounded by people who coddle me. I would suggest that Mr. Wynn look to his left and right and find anyone in his sphere that says anything but ‘yes’ to him. Emphatically. I did not attend a private boys’ school, I worked in tobacco fields and in stock rooms, and construction sites. I’ve been broke more of my life than I have been successful, and I understand the meaning of being an employee and how difficult it is to make ends meet.

“Steve is one of the richest men in the world and he should be congratulated for it, but he needs to take off his red sparkly dinner jacket and roll up his sleeves every once in a while and understand what most of the country is actually dealing with … or at least start with the fact that you can’t make up stories when eight people who are not on your payroll are sitting around you as witnesses.”

Them fighting words!

    Go George! Team Clooney!

  • Ava

    George Clooney is a drunk and gay… Is whole public persona is contrived, just like this fake engagement .

  • olivia

    lmao, why is he so upset though? no need to release random statements about a childish feud between two smug as-holes over dinner.

  • Hot Dumb Italian Mike!

    I used to like G.C. he stinks of elitism now . Team Wynn!!

  • Drats

    George Clooney is humorless. He forgot to mention that his famous aunt , singer Rosemary Cloooney pulled man stringdps to get work in Hollywood. He’s been a working actor for decades. He’s been richer longer than being poor- which he never was.

    If I were his bride to be. I would be embarrassed by this stupid rant. What a baby he is. And a narcissist.

  • Xoxo

    Team Clooney
    I’m sick of these old racists

  • Yves

    Clooney ego is getting the best of him. It’s really obvious. Schmuck!

  • Avery

    @XOXO…because if you criticize a failed President and his failing policies that he lied to the American public to get passed and is still lying daily to keep them from knowing what a boondoggle Obamacare is ….it’s racist… I guess 65% of the Americans our racist , that’s how many think Obama’s a failed leader .

  • Obamastolemymoney


    Typical lib response. Wynn doesn’t like the Prez so he’s racist. I’m so sick of hearing that and believe me, so is everyone else. Obama’s a lousy president and it has NOTHING to do with his color. Deal with it!

  • hi

    Congrats George on your engagement! HEre’s to many happy years with your beautiful new fiance! You finally found her.
    All the best…

  • AshleyLove

    Tell ‘em George. Wynn is a racist, plastic surgery looking freak who can’t find any dirt on you, so he resorts to making shyt up. He looks like he a DL idiot with 2 inches of flaccid nothingness.

  • Nico

    Seriously can’t stand Clooney the guys a laughing stock with his every 2 years new ” girlfriend” with confidentiality agreements and now this engagement, of which every detail has been released to the tabloids, just come out of the closet George , no one cares you aren’t that big of a celebrity .

  • AshleyLove


    Do tell, you talk as if you were the fly on the wall when all of this transpired. #idiot.

  • Amanda

    I’ve been in a restaurant in London , George Clooney and a group of people were 2 tables away , he likes to drink, can put a lot back , was loud and ranting , so ah I believe casino owner .

  • Galey

    Team George, I think he is amazing and very honest. He is also very funny and dos not take himself too seriously. He is also very smart and politically involved in all the ways that count.

  • Tom

    George Clooney who doesn’t even have a college degree, and can’t act either, lucky break getting ER after 20 years in Hollywood, knows more how policies effect the economy then a guy who runs a billion dollar empire and has thousands of employees and who says hollywood celebrities live in their own world and don’t know sh*t about anything.

  • Hollyweird at it again

    Clooney is seriously pathetic loser , he always opens his stupid mouth , did the same think with Sony , pretended he knew more about business then a hedge fund manager, 7 months later Sony’s doing exactly what the manager recommended so they don’t file for bankruptcy, while George’s movie for Sony didn’t even make any money , stick to drinking & dating cocktail waitresses and pretend girlfriend, will you George .

  • allison

    I’m normally not on GC side. I think he cares too much about what people think of him. But when a billionaire whines about having to pay a little more so their employees have health care I scream KICK HIS A S S STRAIGHT George!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Niagirl

    Oh please. Wynn should direct his anger where it belongs and that is at his ex wife. Elaine is the one who took more than half.

  • Ann

    Suspicious timing after Steve Wynn called him a pathetic drunk. The next day he trots out Rande Gerber to defend him (!) and the next day he is “engaged”. Not Buying It For One Second.

  • Em

    @22 I agree, here we go, another day chock full of the excruciating details of this oh-so-private man’s latest romance. Someone really wants to distract us from looking behind that curtain!

  • @ Allison

    @ Allison… You obviously know nothing , employers wouldn’t be paying more they’ll paying less once they dump their employee’s into Obamacare and pay the fine , that’s why Obama keeps delaying the employee mandate until after 2014 election…. Stupid and unformed people like you are what is ruining this country, electing crooks like Obama who thinks the public can be easily fooled if you have the media and entertainment industry on your side and you prove his belief.

  • freya


    I still have to see the failed policies of the President but I’m getting tired of experiencing the failed policies of the Republicans I think their failed educational policies is what keeping them in office.

  • freya



  • booth

    Why the hell is George still on this. He already issued a statement now he is talking about it again.

    I don’t know much about that Wynn guy. If he is a known racist then why is George associating with him to begin with. If the man said something you didn’t like you addressed it then left. END OF STORY. For someone that has put himself on a pedestal he sure is over the top. He spouts off about other celebs all the time. Telling people that they shouldn’t do this or that. Well follow your own advice George and just let this OLD MAN none argument go. It’s not like anyone threw a punch. They called each other Assholes** hardly that controversial.

    Does George just want attention. He has put his live out there in deep detail. Once you do that you can’t go back.

    Something is so strange about the NEWLY ENGAGED George.

  • freya

    @Hollyweird at it again:

    Why don’t you follow your own advice.a**hole

  • Vigo

    I’m curious about you commenters. What grades did you finish in school? Your use of grammar and punctuation is embarrassing. People who speak English as a second language write and express themselves better than nearly every one of you. Shocking.

  • UglyMichelle

    Typical Hollywood liberal, if you don’t agree with them, they will try to destroy you. I don’t get where GC is such a GREAT friend of Obama. Do they hang out? Does Obama fly to Italy to stay at GC’s Lake Como mansion? I mean if I went to dinner with someone and they called Obama a name, I wouldn’t go to gossip sites and talk on and on about it. This happened a while back but it’s funny both this site and Perez are now just talking about it. You know the Democrats paid money in ads for favorable stories about Obama all over the internet and now you know who gave the marching orders. Do you guys care about Benghazi? Or gas being $4.00 A GALLON (you cared in 2008 when it was $3.00 a gallon). The economy sucks, most movies today suck. Gravity had an awful script but awards are about being the best lefty now. Man, John Wayne was an unabashed conservative-they’d eat him alive today. Hollywood sucks and the media sucks because you can’t disagree or you’re labeled a racist (lame) or they want to destroy you.

  • Rick

    @Allison . Obviously you very young & never ran a business, mid size & small businesses are barely making profits in a economy that hasn’t grown in the last 5 years in a so called recovery and in a economy with the highest number of Americans out of the work since the 1980 , so companies that supply good healthcare to their employees, will find paying the fine is cheaper they covering it themselves, meaning people who be forced into poor Obamacare exchanges, lose their healthcare and doctors, especially with healthcare costs exploding in the last year. Those that didn’t cover healthcare the margin of their business isn’t enough will just fire employees to keep costs down. People who work long hours, put their capital in their companies ..don’t do it to lose money , clowns like Clooney and Obama who have never ran even a lemon stand think in delusions , that’s why 6 years into Obama economy there is still no growth, high job loss and trillions in spending and higher taxes and no economic recovery coming, just reported this week the 1st quarter of 2014, 1% growth, recession territory.

  • Corinne

    The affable George Clooney has become so bizarre as of late. He publicly fighting with Vegas sleez and getting engaged with all the details shared with the press? It’s so weird. I feel embarrassed for Amal. She’s a smart woman who kindof looks dumb at the moment for being with this dope.

  • Sayer

    Team Clooney. @Avery, you’re pathetic. Steve Wynn’s face terrifies me.

  • UglyMichelle


    Exactly why is disagreeing with Obama racism? It’s so lame and tired. He is an awful President. Do you like paying $4 a gallon for gas? How about unemployment-happy with that? Where was Obama when 4 people died in Benghazi-he says he was sleeping, who sleeps then? I also love his foreign policy. Let’s see, all the same countries who hated us before still hate us and we’ve ruined our relationship with Israel. Do you know how much basketball and golf Obama plays? Do you know how many times JayZ and Beyonce have been to the WH? This guys is not a world leader, he’s a Kardashian. The education system in this country sucks because all the liberals have free lunch and breakfast for most US kids instead of spending it on books. Also, from friends who are teachers, they say the kids today are horrible and the parents are worse. The increase in out of wedlock babies and welfare is not good for this country. You need to wake up and take a look around you and stop watching E!.

  • kelli

    don’t care for either one, but Clooney isn’t exactly a working man in touch with reality himself. I’m sure he’s surrounded by just as many people who say yes to him when the answer should be no. they are both egomaniacs and should keep their dispute(s) between them

  • @freya

    (. Freya ). ,,,,,,, then your pretty stupid if you can’t see the failed policies of incompetent Obama and thank god you’re in the minority, even the liberal media polls show American disapprove Obama on every policy, from failed Obamacare , spying on Americans, from Healthcare, to the economy to foreign affairs , Afghanistan war ….”………………………………..So keep pretending that 8 trillion added to the debt in barley 6 years, 92 million Americans out of the workforce , 5 years of stagnant economy , people paying more for less healthcare , a President who lies to the public about being able to keep their doctor and health insurance , who uses the IRS to go after his political opponents, , who lied about Americans slaughtered in Benghazi and tried to cover it up, lied to about spying on Americans… While he goes golfing and on vacations, and the world to goes to world war 3 Obama wondering when’s his next celebrity party.

  • Eddy

    Sayer the only person who is pathetic is you, really ” team Clooney” is this 2005 and are you 12, get a life loser , Clooney doesn’t know from the last di*k he sucked.

  • Sam

    Freya . Com’on girl you can’t be that blind , you are either a left loon (Hollywood) or black or a teenager , 1 group too stupid and the other 2 groups live with their heads in la la land because they don’t want to admit that a guy who took 3 years and billions of dollars to to f up his own signature achievement while lying his azz off to barely get it passed by only democrats really is too stupid or lazy to be President, besides everything else he’s lied about and touched turn to sh*t , time to wake up.

  • Silly people

    ahaha seriously @ Sayer are you going to get t-shirt made.

  • Can’t be this uninformed

    @ Freya the irony of you mentioning republicans and educational policies in the same sentence. It’s the democrat party that has owned the teachers union for the last 40 years , it’s Obama who canceled his first year in office a successful charter program in DC for minority students because of the teachers union. California is a democrat controlled state pays more per student then ant other state and is 50Th in achievement standards out of 50 states. America spend more per student in any other country but is in the bottom half in testing in international scoring, but all democrats cry is more money, not better teachers and accountability.

  • Revisionist Historian Clooney

    The deception is carefully concealed here:
    “I didn’t drink one shot of tequila, not one.”
    In fact, he was probably drinking 16 shots of vodka or any other hard liquor.
    By carefully wording a statement, George Clooney deceives.
    He’s lived a lie for so long…

  • Anon

    I don’t care for either one, but George Clooney is a master manipulator. In interviews he has a way saying a lot but revealing nothing. He has a history of attacking those who disagree with him dating back to his feud with Charlton Heston when he mocked Alzheimer’s. Both Wynn and Clooney live in a bubble, but the former is a business man and to me that trumps an actor any day. The fact is, Obama is a horrible president, who never should have been reelected. The media covers for him. Clooney fancies himself some sort of messiah, be he’s just an entertainer. I’m already anticipating his mouthing off about foreign policy based on what I’ve read about his fiancée and her family’s views.

  • Walter

    I am afraid to think what is on the horizon for Clooney if he cant keep his shit together. What is he doing in a Las Vegas casino anyway?He has become such a pathetic idiot!

  • yep

    Why did the disagreement have to become public? Why would George walk out because he disagreed. Why couldn’t they agree to disagree and move on to something else?????? Seems like something a 5 or 6 year olds would do because they haven’t learned how to communicate when they don’t agree or can’t share. Grown men!


    I say YAY for Mr. Clooney, of course! Steve Wynn is a greedy, pathetic old fossil! Clooney is just setting the record straight after Wynn went on the record to tell outrageous lies. With his money, I think Wynn may secretly already be trying to take Clooney down. Someone in Vegas already discontinued serving Clooney’s tequila. I’ve never been in love with Clooney like a lot of gals, but at least he is standing up for his friend (The President). He did not allow that smug old fossil to intimidate him. Wynn has a lot of NERVE saying what he said. As far as I can see, Wynn was deliberately wanting to “start something” with Clooney. Everybody knows that George Clooney supports the President. Wynn should have kept his wrinkly old trap shut!!!!!


    @yep: Wynn was deliberately “baiting” Clooney, because like Clooney said, Wynn likes to RANT. He’s probably a rich, smug bully just like his friend Donald Trump. When you already know your guests have different views from yours and that you are both pretty staunch about your beliefs, you AVOID THE SUBJECT. Clooney was a guest. Wynn acted like a complete jerk and a terrible host. I’m sure that’s the end of their dinners — forever! No love lost.

  • And we say…

    Everybody has a right to their opinions. People hate Obama, but there are still people who love and support him. Sorry you can’t accept that truth. The Republicans are out in full force tonight on this subject. What are you? On Steve Wynn’s payroll?

  • wow

    @Walter: Your post is so lame. You asked the dumbest question, “What is he doing in a Las Vegas casino anyway?” Are you serious?!

  • lol

    @Sam: Stop copying other people’s words. You just can’t be original, can you?

  • Luc

    Obama’s greatest achievements go on 6 years in office: still able to blame the guy before him for any and all problems, to surpass 2 former President’s (that world be Clinton & Bush) combined in golf games, for him and his family to have spent more tax payer money on vacations then the last 4 Presidents combined, to be able to make laws and change them without congress ( changed Obamacare 34 times by executive order) to having lied to the American people more times, on their healthcare , the deaths of Americans in Benghazi, the IRS scandal, , Guns in Fast& Furious without getting impeached and to have the worst unemployment rate of any modern President since the Depression and still get re elected ….. Oh and to have increased the national debt in 5 years more then every President before him combined… Ahy 3 more years, let’s see if he can watch and twiddle his thumbs ( or golf) while Putin starts rebuilding USSR.
