Clooney Speaks

This has overtones of "The Onion".

Speaking at a Friday press conference for his new film The Monuments Men, director George Clooney urged Britain to return VFX jobs stolen from California, claiming Americans “have a legitimate case” in demanding their return.

Responding to a Greek journalist’s question about claims Britain should return “appropriated” historical art treasures, Clooney responded, “Britain has a long history of swiping far more important stuff from the U.S. than the ridiculous number of priceless historical artifacts they’ve looted from around the world. First, they took our Rock ‘n’ Roll. Next, they took all the good movie villain roles. Then, they stole The Office. But that wasn’t enough. So, they decided to steal our visual effects industry. Effing wankers.” ...

I have a wee bit of skepticism that any of the above went down. But it's amusing to imagine that it did.

Add On: And of course, now I see it is made up.
