George Clooney Isn’t Feuding with Leonardo DiCaprio

George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprioGeorge Clooney isn't feuding with Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Monuments Men actor, who made headlines last year when he subtly dissed the Wolf of Wall Street star during an interview, insists he has no issues with the 39-year-old actor. "Somebody made it like there was a big fight. I've known Leo a long time and somebody just made that a fight," the 52-year-old star told ABC News' Popcorn with Peter Travers.

The former E.R. star's publicist was forced to defend him after George suggested Leonardo surrounded himself with the wrong type of people when recalling a basketball game they once played together in Cabo San Lucas.  "The discrepancy between their game and how they talked about their game made me think of how important it is to have someone in your life to tell you what's what. I'm not sure if Leo has someone like that," he said.

His spokesperson later insisted, "The Leo comments were all made in fun about basketball. Not about Leo's life."

Meanwhile, George is disappointed he isn't a good singer, as he assumed he would be a talented vocalist like his legendary late aunt Rosemary Clooney, and claims he only discovered his inability to hold a tune when he was filming O Brother, Where Art Thou? in 2000: "I went into a recording studio and T-Bone Burnett and Joel and Ethan [Coen] assumed that because I was Rosemary's nephew that I would be a great singer, and I kind of assumed that too. Then we got into the recording studio and I sang 'Man of Constant Sorrow' with all the music playing and I finished and looked up and there's that glass booth with all of them in it and no one would look me in the eye. Then they played it back and it was pretty bad. It was so bad that I made them destroy it."
