Clooney rips Bannon for being failed screenwriter
Oscar-winning actor George Clooney took aim at former White House strategist Stephen Bannon’s works as a screenwriter at a film festival this week, calling Bannon a “failed f—— screenwriter.”
“Steve Bannon is a failed f—— screenwriter, and if you’ve ever read [his] screenplay, it’s unbelievable,” Clooney told reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival, Vulture reported.
Before becoming an executive at Breitbart News, Bannon worked on 19 films, some as a producer and others as a writer and director. The films include several independent documentaries on the rise of conservative groups like the Tea Party movement.
Clooney has lambasted Bannon for his “Shakespearean rap musical about the L.A. riots,” referring to his late-90s screenplay “The Thing I Am,” which superimposed Los Angeles gang rivalries over Shakespeare’s Coriolanus.
The Hollywood actor is a vocal critic of President Trump and has taken to bashing several White House figures since Trump took office. He has called both Bannon and Trump “Hollywood elites” in response to Trump’s anti-elitist platform.
Clooney is a typical Hollywood elitist. He puts achievements in tinsel town above serving in the military. Most Americans don’t see it that way.
