George Clooney Plotting Amy Poehler And Tina Fey Revenge Following Golden Globes Jibe
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made a joke about George Clooney only being attracted to women younger than him at this year’s Golden Globes and the actor has now reponded to say that he’s planning to get his own back on the pair.
Clooney recently took part in one of Reddit’s ‘Ask Me Anything’ sessions and when one fan referenced Tina and Amy’s recent jibe, George said that he’s been busy plotting revenge.
At this year’s awards ceremony, the ladies said on stage: “‘Gravity’ is nominated for best film. It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.”

However, insisting that he saw the funny side of whole thing, Clooney said: “Usually it’s pretty funny,” adding: “I got really good by Tina and Amy the other day and I’m working on getting them back in a big way.”
The actor added that it’s funny when a comic’s joke misfires: “I’ve been the target of a couple of stupid jokes that didn’t work, but in general I’ve only seen a couple that were really vicious toward people, and they didn’t work. When they don’t work you feel badly for the person doing it.”

George also spoke about his hobbies on the Q&A, dishing the dirt on his rather unusual love for making shoes.
“What is a hobby of yours that most people don’t know about?” asked one Reddit user to which the actor replied: “I’m a cobbler, I like to make shoes.”
One person asked “Who’s a better cobbler, you or Daniel Day-Lewis?” and George then said: “Let me just tell you this. When Daniel Day-Lewis was spending all his time playing Lincoln, I was just fixing shoes. He’s spending all the time focused on the hat, and the pipe, and getting into character, and I remained focused – with the overalls and the hammer.”
