Matt Damon‘s gay joke has Gorgeous George plotting revenge!
Damon revealed how he angered his pal George by following up fellow Ocean’s Eleven costar Brad Pitt‘s gay allegation with one of his own at the Venice Film Festival!
"Brad Pitt was… doing interviews for Inglorious Basterds and I guess people had been asking him, ‘When are you and Angelina Jolie to get married?’ and he finally just said, ‘Me and Angelina will marry when George Clooney (marries) his boyfriend!’" Damon divulged.
"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?’
"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 vows not to let Damon and Pitt go unpunished for their joint-manhood slurring.
"I’m going to do something," Clooney said. "I’ve got something BIG planned."
