Clooney About Daniel Day-Lewis: "I Don't Like Him!"

George Clooney and Daniel Day-Lewis

George Clooney is not happy with Daniel Day-Lewis! OK! Magazine reports:

Two years ago, George Clooney had a one in three shot of winning an Oscar and pulled through, picking up Best Supporting Actor for Syriana. This year, he has one shot, in Best Actor for Michael Clayton, but he's not feeling good about his chances.

"If you want my honest opinion, I think it's going to be Daniel Day-Lewis," he tells Extra. "He sort of irritates all of us because he's so good. I'll tell you right now, I don't like him!""

Of course Clooney doesn't like Daniel-Day Lewis! Not only is Day-Lewis a more talented actor, he's an eccentric, elegant, and outspoken. Clooney's just a conceited Hollywood actor who tries to mask his conceit with all his political do-gooder antics. I mean, I can't help but think about two instances where Clooney was acting like a drama queen: once, not too long ago, when he absolutely freaking out when Britney was first hospitalized and another time when he almost fought Fabio and until Big Fabio told him to "Stop being such a Diva!" (which was one of my favorite celeb stories of last year).

See, no wonder Clooney doesn't like Daniel Day-Lewis... Day-Lewis would never act like a little girl, nor would he ever tolerate being called a Diva! In fact, he wouldn't even put himself in a situation like that to begin with. You don't see Day-Lewis living in Malibu and going out looking for all kinds of attention and then complaining when he gets it. Rather, he lives in Ireland, minds his own business, lives his own little eccentric life and tries to humbly master his craft. Bottom line, Daniel Day-Lewis is the absolute man and one of the most unique and talented actors of our generation... and Clooney, well, he's good, but he's just "SO HOLLYWOOD!" Yea, I said it! And I hope Clooney heard me too!!!
