George Clooney: "No, I'm gay, gay. The third gay - that was pushing it"
George Clooney sat for an interview with the April issue of Esquire magazine, and People got a sneak peak. The actor/director/activist gamely answered all the rumors and stories out their about him.

Last fall, Clooney and Fabio got in an argument at an LA restaurant, when Clooney thought Fabio's dinner partners were snapping his picture. Fabio later told Details, "I should have beat Clooney's ass!" George tells Esquire that the fake butter spokesman probably could have beaten him up:

"Yeah, that's probably true. He's a big guy. There is a moment when you are actually in the argument and you're thinking, 'If I do get beaten down by Fabio, that will be far worse than the pain. I wouldn't shake that.'"

He also goes through other rumors that show up in google:

When Esquire discovers a Web site that calls Clooney "gay, gay, gay," the good-natured actor quips, "No, I'm gay, gay. The third gay - that was pushing it."

Donald Trump's recent "short guy" comments about Clooney. George, who is 5- feet 11-inches tall, responds, "I saw Donald Trump on Larry King and he was saying, 'Clooney is a very short guy. I mean he's a tiny guy.' I've met Donald Trump once, and I was sitting at a table. He came over, shook my hand, and walked away. I guess I looked about three foot five sitting at that table."

They also surface a quote from Rupert Everett criticizing Clooney's Ocean's movies as a "cancer," to which Clooney replies: "Where did that come from? You kind of go, Dude, weren't you in Dunston Checks in?"

I already did.

"I guess I looked about three foot five sitting at that table."

2. What I love most about Clooney
well other than his sexy body... He can respond back to his critics in such a humorous and pointed way that wins the argument and makes his critics look like fools. And who could forget that sexy body!

3. He knows who he is, and he makes no apologies.
That's what I get from Clooney. There's a lesson in that for us all.

4. Five foot eleven inches is hardly short.
And height is overrated anyway.

Donald Trump needs to keep his yap shut.
