Clooney Hits Back At Crowe

LATEST: George Clooney has hit back at Hollywood rival Russell Crowe, after the Gladiator actor slammed stars who appear in commercials.

The Antipodean actor was particularly scathing of Clooney, Harrison Ford and Robert De Niro, who have all plugged products on television outside America.

Crowe said, "I don't use my celebrity to make a living. To me it's kind of sacrilegious - it's a complete contradiction of the f**king social contract you have with your audience."

But Clooney has hit back - and suggested Crowe uses his celebrity to promote his rock band 30 ODD FOOT OF GRUNTS.

He says, "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."
