George Clooney Gets In Altercation In Las Vegas

This is not a good look for George Clooney. According to reports, things got heated between the actor and billionaire Steve Wynn during a dinner in Sin City!

The pair were dining among friends when discussion rose regarding Obamacare. According to The Telegraph, the altercation escalated after Wynn used choice words describing the President, following a verbal attack from an intoxicated Clooney.

In a statement released by the "Monuments Men" star's publicist, Clooney quickly defended his actions, calling President Obama his "longtime friend."

"There were nine people at that table so you can ask them. Steve likes to go on rants He called the president an a------. That is a fact. I said the president was my longtime friend and then he said 'Your friend is an a------'. At that point I told Steve that HE was an a------ and I wasn't going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass. And I walked out," he explained.

"There were obviously quite a few more adjectives and adverbs used by both of us. It had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with character."

Fellow dinner guests included Clooney's business partners Rande Gerber and Michael Meldman, who he was in Vegas with promoting their new tequila, Casamigos, and Wynn's wife Andrea Hissom.

His partners were allegedly "mortified" about the incident.

The casino mogul remembers the incident differently, putting the blame on Clooney in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"Clooney's fun to be with when he's sober," Wynn said. "If you have a chance to drink with him, you want to get there early, and don't stay late."

"Everybody who's in my business, the casino business, knows to take actors with a grain of salt," he added.
