George Clooney nearly dodged a giant, muscular Italian bullet during a misunderstanding at a restaurant between himself and the long-haired romance novel poster boy, Fabio. At least, that’s the song Fabio’s singing to Details magazine. Fabio’s still talking about the incident, calling George “a dog whose noise is worse than his bite” and saying that he’s still “pissed.” I imagine his smack talk included a couple of incredulous declarations of not believing it was butter peppered throughout the dialogue for good measure.
“He laid a hand on me, so it would have been self-defense if I had been beaten him down.” Ha! Fabio should be happy the two of them nearly tussled because besides occasionally almost getting into fights with George Clooney, there’s probably not much else Details magazine would want to interview him for. And in his defense, George has responded by saying, “Oh yeah? Well, Fabio has split ends. There, I said it.” OK, not really, but I’m really hoping to see some heartthrobs go at it, so I’m just throwing it out there.
