George Clooney is mad and telling Hello Magazine to get a Clooney!
He says they printed a story they called an ‘exclusive interview’ with George Clooney. Only one problem, Clooney said, “I never gave an interview.”
The magazine he says published a fake interview that was widely picked up and re-printed over the weekend. Outlets like, Vanity Fair, Marie Clair, The Sun and the Evening Standard all printed this bogus interview and credited Hello Magazine with the story which read that “George and Amal have a rule they are never apart for more than a week.”
In the interview they attributed quotes to Clooney that clearly were not accurate. Clooney says, “Being misquoted is not unusual but to have an ‘exclusive interview’ completely fabricated is something new and a very disturbing trend.”
The magazine has since removed the article from its site and replaced it with an apology. They now say they bought the interview from an agency which had “culled together an article based on a series of interviews that took place over a period of time.”
They admit the quotes attributed to Mr. Clooney were never made by him.
