We know. This ranks right up there with Brooke Hogan has no talent.

What did Clooney’s leading ladies have to say about him? According to the New York Daily News:

Ocean’s 13 costar Ellen Barkin announced
“Yes, I have f— George Clooney. I always heard that George has amazing chemistry with all of his co-stars. Now I see why. … I’m probably the only one of many actresses to stand up here and admit yes, I have f— George Clooney. I’m very proud of it actually … If you don’t have chemistry with George Clooney, you need to check your pulse.”

Julia Roberts:
“Before I met my husband, you were the best man I ever met. … You’re cute and funny and you do wacky things with shaving cream and Neosporin.”

Before anyone could conjure a picture of George lathering Julia up, she added, “I don’t mean that in a sexy way.”

Salma Hayek:
“Girls, he’s the best friend you can have. But he’d make a lousy boyfriend.” She added: “For a non-Mexican, he makes the best shrimp quesadillas I have had.”

Clooney’s response?
“I do have regrets in my life. I regret that Michelle Pfeiffer was married when we did One Fine Day. And that Julia and Catherine Zeta-Jones were married, too.

Also Matt Damon, but that’s a different story. I’d like a crack at him.”
