George Clooney really is sorry for his part in that disastrous Batman movie in the 90s.
Clooney appeared on The Graham Norton Show on Friday alongside ‘Tomorrowland’ cast-mates Britt Robertson and Hugh Laurie, and the subject of the universally panned 1997 film ‘Batman & Robin’ came up when the conversation turned to their appearance at last year’s New York Comic Con.
And Clooney has no doubts about how awful that instalment in the Batman franchise was.
I always apologise for ‘Batman and Robin’. I actually thought I’d destroyed the franchise until they brought it back! I thought at the time this was going to be a very good career move. It wasn’t!
The 54-year-old Clooney also spoke about his ongoing prank war with Brad Pitt, which began on the set of Ocean’s Eleven over a decade ago, and has only continued to escalate.
Clooney’s gags on Pitt include comically altering the 51-year-old’s numberplate and sending a whole bunch of letters to fellow actors pretending to be the Fight Club star.
And Clooney thinks his latest prank on Pitt could land him in prison.
I’m doing one now that I can’t tell you about but in a year you’re going to hear that I’ve been arrested. I’m not kidding, because I think I’ve crossed a line. Yeah, it’s exciting. I have a wife, she’s a barrister – I’ll be fine!Advertisement
With behind-the-scenes antics like this, no wonder we haven’t got an Ocean’s Fourteen!
