First, there was Fabio-gate, the much-publicized restaurant tiff between George Clooney and the model-turned-baron of butter. Then, Radar magazine this February published a piece called “Why is Hollywood Hating on George Clooney,” which outlines feuds between Clooney and the paparazzi, director David O. Russell, and other industry sources. Now, talk is surrounding about his interactions with his best friend’s ex, Jennifer Aniston.
Although Aniston didn’t have any interaction with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the Feb. 23 Night Before party at The Beverly Hills Hotel as many had predicted (and honestly, hoped), Aniston did have a conversation with Clooney. While Clooney’s longtime rep Stan Rosenfeld said that Aniston and Clooney are “great friends,” not everyone saw the exchange that way.
